On Sunday at the meet, I was driving my mates Calibra Turbo.

I was following Donna and when I was behind her she booted it and so did I but I could not gain on her

This Calibra Turbo is 205bhp, is there likely something to be wrong with it?

Discuss.

No, it was not my driving.

He was racing a Seat Ibiza Cupra-R the other week and he could not shake it.

But when I raced this same Ibiza I managed to get past it.

I think his Turbo is fcuked.

So if Mitchell's Calibra is quicker than my Punto Oliver, does this mean D5 is quicker than me also?

The calibra turbo isn't quick once its moving, too many transmission losses. I used to keep up with them in my 160BHP RST, before it was chipped.
