    Mileage : Rising

    Default How fast - Accord type R

    As above.
    How quick is the Honda Accord Type R ?
    I had one 'play' with me last night and to be honest, the Honda was pants. I had him in every gear and even out handled it until i had to stop for petrol !!!
    The honda also stopped & i thought 'He's piffed off with me !' and wants to let me know about it.
    But all he said was " F*^k mate , that car shifts. What you done to it ?"
    All i could say was "Nothing mate, it's standard !"
    "Well i couldn't catch you !" was the reply.

    Vectra turbo = 1 - Accord Type R = 0. Party on.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    The Type R is way down on torque which comes in much later compared to the 2.0T and you need to take it to redline to get the most out of it. And it aint turbocharged.

    I tell you what.... he dropped a gear (cos I heard it through his exhaust note).... I flashed once... I flashed again and he reluctantly pulled over and I flew past (with my mate in the passenger seat watching him, and my wife in the back reading a book).....

    My mate looked at me and just said 'Ha !'.... This VXR is a missile !!

    All under 70 mph in a controlled environment, no animals were harmed in this production. Any resemblance to actual people is purely accidental and like all my stories, they are just that ... dont try this at home kids, cos you'll upset mum
