Hi people

Just wondering what cars on road you have come up against and what happened, for example the usual Focus ST/RS, Type - R & VXR etc.

Would be good to know your own experiences.

Had a bit of a play with a ST Mk2 Focus an even though I didn't go off initially at some pace, I did end up leaving him a bit when I did.... but only upto 70mph of course.....lol

Played with a civic type r, VxrAstra (2 different cars), focus st 2, golf mk2 (1.8 20v), corsa neurberg they all got left

Had a few nice runs with my mate with a mk5 r32 and that was just pointless we just sat next to each other lol,
Want to play with an s3 but I'm sure the time will come

Had an Alfa 147 GTA attempt an overtake on my way to Inters on Sunday. Virtually identical acceleration until I took my foot off the gas and let him go by, as I had a full cup of coffee in the crummy cupholder between the front seats and didn't want it in my lap when we got to the roundabout!

Had my ass handed to me on a plate by a brand new VXR8, bright yellow in colour, silly of my to try really but thought I'd give the other motorists the joy of listening to a V6 and a V8 roar past... I'm sure if they had the opportunity they would of thanked us

M3 in the pissing wet. He blew me away on the straights but I had the better of him in the corners and off the line at a set of lights. He didnt look happy lol. Love AWD and that traction.

Ed30 ass whipping a r32..... As the earlier posting there must be something wrong unless it was remapped.

Had a s5 try to get in front as it was at traffic lights an two lanes but up ahead he had a car at next set so he tried to get in front of me before he got to car but nothing really in it with having DSG an him having to work that bit harder then he got annoyed so drove on other side of road like a loser lol.

Not necessarily, ED30 is 230bhp standard and lighter than an R32 so in the dry I would expect it to be pretty close.

I guess it all depends on your definition of "ass whipped".:)

Saw a vid on YouTube that was MKV GTI vs MK5 R32 and that R apparently had its ass whooped ...... And here's the funny part, they're we're both STANDARD!

Not worth worrying about, there is always a faster car or driver round the corner no matter what you own.

Best to enjoy your choice and let tnem enjoy their choice:)

All this my car is faster than your car stuff, is all a bit "Pistonheads" :)
