ha ha that was quite a funny read...

"Well toasted a couple today ,experimenting with my car after id put new motor in power valve,totally obliterated a new golf tdi and that was pulling off gentle putting it in 2nd and booting it,so initially he went ahead but then ,well it was almost embarrasing leaving him for dead so quickly,didnt stop him trying again though,and being trodden under by the zs!"

love the trodden under by the zs! part!!!!

the funny part is he is racing his hot petrol hatch against a diesel!!! i mean come on!!!! think it would be a different story against a new golf gti. Mg's crap rover based hottest hatch against vw's new hot hatch.....!!!

the MG will be then trodden on!!!

MGZS Vs hot hatch???? I like my TDI but Id never call it a hot hatch. If the MGZ wants to take on "hot hatches" then put it up against the R32 or the Focus RS.

I whooped a TDI - bet that impressed his mates down the pub.

Having said that though, some muppet in a new MR2 decided to try it on up a long hill near me the other day.

MR2 125ft/lb Vs. The golf with 225ft/lb going up hill??? his 10 BHP extra didnt help him much. Ooo his face was a picture.

If anyone in Chesterfield sees a yellow MR2 with a sooty bonnet, point and giggle will you.

You should read the whole thread. They are faster than CTR's and all sorts (BMW330's, Saab Aero).

Filter + exhaust = + 30bhp ... not bad (hehe)

some of them claiming 13-14 second 1/4's with an air filter and taking the seats out, i thought only middle aged men drove rovers, not the max power brigade ?

The only slightly weird thing is that one (not sure which model - the 190 Rover 75 style one I think) got a very good Top Gar lap time - Beat the R32 in fact.

Not sure how!

Ive got a spare bit of time - reckon Ill go back for a full read...

They may be quick though - it is 177BHP in an airfix kit afterall.

My TDI is quick, but Im not daft enough to say it would beat a CTR or a 330. In fact Id probably be beaten by one of those Z's but so what? Mines a VW.

To quote 180 boy, an owner of a Rover180 with Milenium Falcon like propulsion

(everything between the next two sets of lines is a quote)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well Kev, I know the answer to this one because I was there when you did this.

As for my scalps, please consider I live in Paris and they like the Diesel over here.

Mind you, they like to try there luck anyway.

Ferrari 350 (off the lights in a traffic jam in Paris)

Porsche 911 Turbo (off the lights in a traffic jam in Paris)

Audi TT?s both variants

Golf GTI?s

R5GTT?s

Peugeot

Renaults

Merc?s

BMW (they are a ****** pain in the bumper, you waist them they catch you up and still insist on more punishment ?usually X5?s)

MG Z?s (way to much respect for each other, like shooting at your own troops)

Ford (sometimes its nice to humiliate people because I?ve had a bad day)

Loads of different motorbikes, there is a nice stretch of dual carriageway on my way home, both sides of it are protected with concrete barriers very long sweeping flat out in 4th right hander then it straightens for about 400 meters and flat out in 3rd left to right S bend change up to 4th flat out on exit. Not one of the bikes I?ve raced on this stretch has beat me yet, although on the exit they do pass me. (NOTE, I only do this in the very late hours on my way home from Paris when there are no other cars on the road).

I have not read such fantasy since first seeing a readers wives letter in my old grandads porn collection

Think that was the ZT260 which has a 5.7 litre v8. 260BHP, 330ft/lbs.

There really are some funny statements on there....

Heres peach.... he has a new exhaust which will also give him an extra 20-30 bhp

Is that one of those magic exhausts then?

I reckon Im about to wet myself.
