    Default It's official....

    The 'Snot Rocket' is faster than the Honda Civic Type R.

    Lined up against one at lights this evening, he nodded at me so I pressed the sport button. Lights went green and I floored it. I could hear his wheels spin. Snot rocket pulled away from him quite easily, he didn't start reeling me back in until about 90mph, at which point I slowed down as I was nearing the garage to fill up.

    He followed me in and came up to me whilst I was topping up. Asked what the ferk engine I had transplanted in

    He said he was pushing the type r as hard as it would go but just couldn't make any ground on me until we were above the speed limit (good job it was a private road )

    He was amazed and gave much respect to the old rust bucket. Been grinning to myself for the last couple of hours or so

    Can't wait for the next pod meet

    Yeah it should be 136bhp as standard, RR'd at Regals (ahem) at 187 and then 190bhp as he didn't believe the first figure. It's probably not that high, but when you hit the sport button and floor it all hell breaks loose...


    I have to stop 'playing' because the belt needs doing, i've also got an oil leak somewhere, a wheel bearing gone and an exhaust blow. But it's just too much damn fun!

    This was an old R, and the Snot Rocket is an Astra BTW lol. It wasn't a standard R either, he had quad exhausts and it was about an inch from the ground. I didn't think to ask if he'd had any tuning done. Was feeling too smug
