    Default Help!!! almost in tears

    Well, went out for an early morning blast. Up comes some sort of fiesta behind me. I mean might behind me! Turned onto the bypass, booted it, and guess what? He was still right behind me! Right the way through all the rev range in all gears. Gutted's not the word. Highest standard Fiesta bhp i can find is 150bhp on an ST. Surely no match for the 3.0L CDTI? Anyone think i might not be running right?

    dont forget you are running more weight that a little fiesta, although you have about 30 more bhp you still have to pull a really fat bloke more.

    If the fiesta has had any slight mods, such as air filter, straight through exhaust, he will stay with you, as said a lot lighter, you may burn him off the lights, but at speed I see no reason why he would not stay with you.

    Plus they are so easy and pretty cheap to mod, he may have had stuff done.

    You've got 300 lb-ft of torque to the Fiesta's 140. You need to hang your head in shame, or next time let your granny do the driving.
