« on: 11:19, Tue 01 February 2011 »
One of my GIRLFRIENDS MATES who is my age (19) has just bought a corsa vxr  :cry: lol, how quick are these things? Would my 5 keep up with it? Im running a T2/T25 at 18psi  8)  
Anyone had any experiences with these?

Power to weight ratio:

Corsa: 6.47 kg/hp

GT turbo: 7.08 kg/hp (with the standard 120 bhp) I chose the weight to be 850 kg.

It all depends on how tuned your 5 is. But you shold easily be able to win in power to weight ratio. So you shold be quicker than the VXR in acceleration, if you have got the skills  :D

Hope to hear from you which is quicker, the GT turbo or the VXR.

Cheers

Thanks for responses guys, ruivar i hope that my 5 is around the 170 mark, so should be a fair shout ahead of the VXR :):). I would say i have average skills behind the wheel lol ;). I see what mark is saying though personally i'd only boot it a few times, after that i would probably give it a rest.

Haha! I think that is a good idea, mate. And you only need one try, to beat that VXR. Just keep the car as light as possible! :wink: And no wheel spin!!

There is (almost :lol: ) no better feeling than beating a modern car in the old GT turbo. I love it...

My old 5 would happily leave astra VXR's for dust, I imagine the corsa would be no different  :mrgreen:
