just read the Passionford post and was thinking
how about we have a rematch with the NOVA boys, as we lost a few fears back to them when Max did the Corsa Vs Nova day and to say the least we dident do to well, as are fastest corsas where
Standard 2lt 16v and a 1.6 16v

so why not have a re match
i am sure one of the mags will cover and maybe sort it out, i would even think Max would do it again, as a Part 2 and how Corsa have come on over the years

what people think?

but i think we would have more of a chance this time around
as some corsas will be able to keep up with if not beat the Nova boys
except is the twin engine and the ISSCA one comes

High power Novas and corsas seam to run around the same 1/4 mile times

so why not? have a go

My Corsa is on a DVD for Max, coming out August/Sept. And it got battered by that Twin Engined Nova LOL, and a few other cars! It didn't come last though!

That Nova is IMMENSE to say the least. Fastest thing I'll ever go in!

there was a Standard looking corsa at PV which ran 13.1 1/4 miles

its all about on the day
the twin engine Nova HAS run a 2.9 to 60. but its also been clocked at 4.09 and LuckyB's old one doing a 4.97 then could be a close run match
its all about on the day how well we all do
i think it would be a close battle and no matter what the out come will be a A1 day

then the line up.....

I'd say tuned XE's/LET's and Andy Hamilton..... there is no point putting in 1.4 16v's with induction kits etc as per last time

oh..... yours too if it makes the end of the 1/4mile
