im from Hartlepool, work in Middlesbrough got a grey FR
Coolio, where in boro you work mate?
SEAT,S.A are still a Spanish Registered company (Well Catalunya) but are owned by parent company Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft
Well lads, fitted the new badge less grill, looks mean like. Looks awesome.
Boy racers with normal cars, When you see my Xenon's and grill tearin up behind yo ass . . . . . **** yo self lol
and those with remaps will just floor it and laugh at you!
Doubt it mate. A chav in a remapped saxo, clio or any other chav-mobile still wont have as much BHP as my cupra standard. I am gonna remap mine anyway mate.
dont forget the corsa's
they normally reside in tescos car parks on a nite with exhausts worth more than the car
I burnt off a couple of chavs on the way home the other night in a clio sport (brand new shape) and a Fiesta ST. Amateur's dint know what had hit them
Thing is you might laugh at these little cars
But some of them... are very very fast and they are light... its not all about power
funny you should say that Andrew a lad i know in an audi a5 sline got hammered by a little vw lupo, that had been tuned up
its the same old thing
Guy with hatchback with 240bhp thinks he can outrun everything... little superhatch saxo comes along with 150bhp but alot lighter and gets rid of him lol
seen it numerous times
I dont understand how this is possible though. Especially if the Audi has a turbo and 100bhp extra and the saxo doesn't
Who mentioned a Audi? and just because a car has a turbo its automatically faster?
Power to weight son
was a 2.0 s line tdi which is 170-180 bhp. people do allsorts to cars. years ago near were i live there was what looked like a chavved up nova saloon but it had a 2 litre turbo engine dropped in it.
like with cupras and the tdi's you can tweak them considerably with remaps stage 1 and stage 2s
look in the readers rides section you will see some great examples
Marty mentioned the Audi mate. I would have thought if you put my 2.0T cupra next to a saxo tuned up mate, because i have a Turbo, i have alot faster Acceleration, therefore makin distance between us both.
It relies on alot of factors like balls for a start, if one driver dares to take stupid risks and the other doesn't there will only be one clear winner.Also depends on things like the perfect gear change.
I think Standard Diesel is slower than Standard petrol like. I am remapping mine but not looked into it and don't know alot about it. for example dunno how many stages there are, how much each stage costs, at each stage what else needs upgrading etc.
i dont know much about Saxo's but lets for example say now... one pulls up next to you.. somehow hes got 200bhp (im not sure if thats possible from their engines) and his car weighs alot less that yours
Just because you have a turbo and he doesn't your gonna win?
Talking of stupid risks.... your talking about racing cars on streets... just because you might be able to control your car doesn't mean that everybody else on the road can.. just takes one little thing and we could have a multi car smash on our hands.. be careful out there
Get to a track day, 1/4 mile day or 30-130 day instead of playing with lads in saxo's
all i will say is
be carefull around
pug 106's and corsa's you probably have more chance against a scooby than some of these little monsters
a tin can with a mega engine moves faster than a house with the same engine
power to weight ratio - as simple as tbh.
Cupra (240ps) - 1200kg (roughly)
Saxo VTS (150ps) - 800kg (roughly)
just on rough figures your carrying 400kg's more
So based on these power outputs (240ps on the cupra, 150ps on the saxo) these roughly are you power to weight ratio's:
Cupra roughly 200ps Per tonne
Saxo roughly 180ps per tonne
so yes you will have the edge on him without doubt, and yes your turbo will give you the assistance you need to get ahead and pull on him
on and there is somebody I know who has tried to go against a 500kg Saxo with 150ps, you do the maths in terms to what the power to weight, it would destroy your cupra. Fact
