Out of interest who should and who do you think would win a straight line battle? I think the Corrado has about 136 bhp as standard and i really doubt it is heavier than the GSi. It sounds like an easy decision although after driving the Corrado and being a passenger to a few battles with other cars i dont think there would be much in it. Cornering i know her Corrado would have me:oops:

Opinions please
:lol:

from personal experience its a VERY close thing !! i couldnt lose a corrado on a mile long straight and as soon as we hit the twisty stuff he left me for dead :oops: if my defence he knew the roads alot better than i did, but i wasnt exactly being shy with the go go juice.

How accurate are those figures? I always thought the GSi was 0-60 7.4... 8 secs does sound abit more realistic time..
