  • Corsa v type R

    Just a quick question, drove away a bit sharpish today, and all of a sudden i noticed an old shape honda type R trying to kiss my arze, and wouldnt let go until i turned off.

    Which car is the best at this sort of sprint driving ?

    standard vs standard thought it would of been close but i reckon the type r would be better handling in the twisties corsa better for in gear acceleration.

        Its very rare that you get a standard type r.

        My mates mate was bragging about how fast his EP3 type r was saying it was 240bhp etc. he had a play with me and couldnt keep up

            standard v standard the corsa would kick the type r's butt. but show it a corner and the type r wins. i've tried and tested with a mate

                Not exactly intended to be a race, but the more i gave it the more he stuck (with his little blue headlamp bulbs on in broad daylight)
                I could have turned it into more but had to turn off at a junction.
                Hence if i had kept on who would/should have got the better ?

                    210 bhp max i'd guess, with loads of noise from the vtech

                    btw the type r is quicker top end a result of the 2.0 engine and the high reving vtech all imo of course

                      i passed one with a fully loaded astra, wife, dogs and bags! his car was smoking a little on gear change too. Love the way they look but the VTEC just cant beat a bit of boost lol

                            I've gone from Corsa VXR (2 years owning one) to a new shape Type R, and it's faster than my old VXR, a lot smoother but much quicker, especially after 80mph when the Corsa started to run out of guts.

                            It's also quite nice getting feedback through the steering wheel. I learnt how to corner my corsa because you couldn't feel the steering and therefor never had any confidence in it.

                              lol nice pic. ive had the joy of driving the last 2 models of type r numerous times there is absolutely nothing in it unless you remove the pre-cat fit an exhaust the corsas extra torque wins on accelaration
