Who exactly thinks this? If anyone who comments on either and knows that a vts is fast(er) they will more than likely know what a vtr is capable of.

I would give most people who are into cars a little more respect about how much they know. If that comment was made because someone compared a vtr to a fiesta 1.25 zetec I would say they are a decent comparison (you seem to be suggesting that corsa jay was unreasonable in comparing the two )


it wasnt a dig at anyone m8, it was a good comparison as the vtr is only 90bhp.

i meant people i know in general seem to think the vtr is a hell of alot faster than it actually is.

the 1.6 fiesta beat a 1.6 16v saxo

wouldn't beat it round track, nor would it beat it in straight line

A VTR would destroy a 1.25 Fiesta, I should know I used to have a 1.25 and its quick for a 1.2 but wouldn't get near a VTR or even a 1.4 Furio.

Blatent lies, or the Saxo was badged up as a VTR. The 1.25 0-60 is 12sec with no power after 60 so the VTR would be long gone.

Did the fiesta have neon washer jets and a Ripspeed window sticker?

Listen to those that know what they are talking about.

1.25 is slower than an X14XE Corsa, and an X14 Corsa is slower than a 1.6 8v Saxo. End of...... An induction kit and exhaust isn't going to make it twice as fast...

Got to love it
