Had a nice day out at Haynes today with sw-pc, the usual scooby's and Evo's turned up but I went up with a friend in his mk2 xr2 with a engine transplant from a S2 rsturbo. Didnt actually get a drive myself as was worried about doing damage to my friends XR2 but he got 6/7 runs in today. The day started out very wet and we where a tad worried as the XR2(around 150bhp) was running semi slicks but even in these conditions the little old ford was around 1.5 seconds slower than the quickest scoob(1 min 10sec+ to complete laps) and faster than some other scoob+ Evo's! Frankly we had less understeer and better corner speed than anything on the day. This would be a good result anyway but the other cars where tuned as well with 300+bhp scoobs in the field. Later on the track started to dry out a little and the XR2 was around 1/2 second slower than the fastest scoob which belonged to a friend,he is running around 360bhp so you can imagine how much i was winding him up that this 150hp ford was so close other cars that failed to go quicker than the ford included a elise, bmw 325i and 1.9 gti stripped out 205. pointless post but shows that 4wd is over rated even in the wet imo He is kinda thinking of selling it and I am seriously tempted, awesome car. Although no heater means winter drives = frozen legs edit : Got final results in: around 1 second off fastest scoob towards end of day not half a sec like I thought it was.Pesonally I think someone has doctored the results 8 seconds slower on first lap out lol, he only been there in his scoob before so going back to the fezza took a bit of time to get hang of.
