thing about the saxo i guess is thats an 'out of the box' modded car, especially the VTR/VTS, but even the Furio and West Coast were modified styling wise. Mini's are timeless, and even the most hardened of boy racers have a smile (inwards or not) for a mini!!

Even a lightly tuned Mini will *yellow human water* all over a fancy Saxo when it comes to racing.

saxo vtr/s?


no, i raced a 1.6 and lost. I beat him on acceleration at first then he pulled away. But mine is an untuned 1.3 cooper and his was a 1.6 with some minor mods. I kept up a good fight but then he just drove past like i was standing still :D :sad: :D :grin: :D but the drive has been done for speeding and is regulary out racing and that was my first time.

believe it or not (i couldn't quite), my little 1098 beat a Civic Type R at nottingham circuit off the lights straight into a 90 deg corner and kept up a fight about 100 yards down the straight, then obviously it went past like i was going backwards. The bloke pulled up later next to me and said well done!

Yea, even with 13"s, you still can't get such a high top end as say, a Saxo, that comes with 14"s as stock.

Oh, and for the record, I was in a stock Cooper last week that left a very expensive Z3 standing, then proceeded to obliterate it.

Needless to say, he wasn't very happy when £XX,000 of BMW got 0wn3d by >£2k of rusty 1980s metal, with 2 people on board. heh heh.
