I now have 3,500 miles on my flaming comet of death.

I have been taking it reasonably easy, although the other half complains of whiplash when I I floor it on the bypass.


I seemed to come off worse in a burn off with a Skoda Octavia VRs and an Astra VXR the other day. I know the Astra is quick (assuming it does not need to go round a corner and you can handle the torque steer) but a VRs!!

Is the engine fully run in yet, or is it me who is a punter?

if it cant beat the two cars you listed i would be concerned. but it all depends on if they are standard.

Hmmm.




I suspect the Astra was modded as it kept up in the mid range when I would not expect a small block petrol to be able to. The Skoda may also have been heavily mapped as there are plenty of kits out there for what is a VAG engine.


Maybe it was the Tesco Value diesel :)

I have a VXR and they are quick, real quick but you should have the torque to deal with that I would of thought. It's quick off the line though.

The torque steer isn't really that bad and the car has a bad rep thx to top gear testing the car with and old chassis on it, oh it does go round corners as well.....:eek: :rolleyes:
