    Hence why I said "unless the conditions were totally different" ie wet-dry. Not the sharpest tool in the box are you. :cartman:

    The night is dark for a reason, you don't necessarily have to look at the mantlepiece whilst your stoking the fire. She's a bit marmite to be honest but theres something about her that makes you wonder as she's a thrill seeker.
    Bet she's dirtier than a rats nuts.

    Anyway, back on topic, if it is any minor consolation, I caught a Fiesta ST from about 200 yds behind on a slip road and yes, he was trying ! By the way I've only got an Elsie !

    I saw an old Fifth Gear on discovery real time a few weeks ago where Tiff compared the Cupra R, Civic Type R and the Focus RS. Not sure what track it was on, and he didn't time it or anything on the show, just his opinions on which was best.

    He chose the Civic I'm afraid, but did say the power delivery on the Cupra was really smooth, and that the inetrior of the Focus was like an Essex boys dream, hard to disagree with that!

    It might have been same track and they timed it? Dead cert they've not had the Cupra on this series.

    He did time it mate. Got it on my computer... The RS was the quickest by about 0.3 sec over the CTR. The LCR was about 1.1 secs behind if i remember rightly. They retested the CTR a few months back and it was about another 0.7 sec faster than before...
    The LCR has never been a track car in my eyes though... more of a all rounder IMO...

    The power delivery is only very smooth on a fast track where the revs never go below 2.5k.

    Deny it till your hearts content but its been proved time again that a chipped TDI beezer can easily keep pace with a Standard LCR, with a remap the LCR should have the legs, but there is definatly not as much in it as every LCR owner would wish, this subject has been done to death.

    I agree with this. The pool car my other half uses (Bora TDi 130) isn't a lot slower than my LCR considering its mods. The LCR should be much quicker than it is considering the hype / development /race tune focus. Why its not I guess comes down to its limitations of how it lays the power down.

    A chipped TDI may KEEP PACE as you put it, with a standard LCR. Although, would be slower. But against a Re-mapped one, no chance!!! If it's the old "in gear" scenario you're reffering to, then yeah, they may be slightly simular for about 6 mph. But if it's balls out acceleration through the gears..... again NO CHANCE!!! Anyway, you said this Ibiza that raced this guy was standard bar cat back and iduction kit... That was my main point!!!!)
    You only have to look at there 1/4 mile times.
    If anybody wants to prove me wrong, i'll meet them at the start line at Santa pod. (show me a TDI beezer with just re-map that runs very low 14's and i'll take you seriously) :rolleyes:
