Ok basically i've got an sri 1.8 and my best mate has just bought a Y reg saxo vts,decent condition with 34,000 miles on the clock.

He let me have a go of it and i've gotta admit its a lot more fun to drive (handling is amazing!) but didn't seem anywhere near as quick as my car yet i thort they were meant to be faster?

what would you put your money on? think i'm gunna organise a race on a private road of course!

i think i've got a decent chance, it can easily have a vtr in a str8 line so the next step up is the vts!

Right, to settle this thread, here goes:

Corsa 1.8: 0-60 = 8s
Top Speed = 126mph
Bhp = 123bhp
Weight = 1082kg

Saxo VTS: 0-60 = 7.6s
Top Speed = 127mph
Bhp = 120bhp
Weight = 935kg

All according to Parkers, so there's your answer, the VTS unless you mates a ****ty driver :thumbs:

1.0 wid poanel filter and cat bak system produces over 90bhp and cos its lighter engine can beat vts. voltage stabaliser allowz greater production of rpms over the rpm range and allows the oil to cool at a faster rate

forgot to mention i've got str8 thru exhaust, ramair carbon fibre air filter with direct cold air feed, and remap by angle-tuning, had full engine rebuild about a month ago. because i was loosing compression on 2 cylinders, its now spot on.
