.....and it just reminds me how slow the majority of the user's cars on here really are. I've bin out in tuned 1.6's sports, turbo SRi's etc and a few corsa valvers, and it really does put em in the shade. We were leaving Corsa sports like they were standing still.

The acceleration difference of the nova with a stripped out rear makes an unbelieveable difference. Yes i no its a nova, i no its 13 years old, but this isnt a statement bout comforts and quality of build. Just bout how sloppy our corsas really are.

Just thought i'd share that with you. Discuss at will.

i was awaiting these comments, but plz read the above. I was commenting on speed/acceleration etc ONLY.

For the record i agree with u on that, tin boxes etc, but lets keep to the specified point.

didnt say that once tho did i mate? I said i've bin out in a few valver corsa's, 3 in fact, and the feelin of acceleration was as great. When it was totally std, it did the pod in 14.4s. 0-60, just under 6.3s. A local vauxhall tunin garage done a valver corsa (std motor), was doin 7.1 0-60's....which is a fair difference.

been out in and driven a few valver novas including turbo and the big difference is the way a corsa with a 2.0l 16v puts the power down but as soon as the nova hits 3rd gear the power to weight difference makes a big difference.

I agree with ya, the nova spins up bad to start, especially in the wet, but coz its on 7x17", power gets down quite well in the dry.

I belive reading that above you said it really does put them in the shade?????


IT DEPENDS ON THE CONDITIONS HOW THE 0-60 WAS MEASURE LOOK AT ADAM KINDNESS'S CORSA THAT RUN'S AROUND A 14.6 QUARTEr MILE AND LIKE I SAID THE CORSA LOOKS BETTER
