Just been having a discussion (arguement :lol:) with a friend on who's car is faster! He recons his will "kick the mito's *** in a straight line and also in the corners" ... and some of my other m8s agree :mad:

I have told them to look up the figures, Mito 0-60 - 8.5s Golf 0-60 -9.2s !! But according to them the mito's stats are exaggereted and the golf's are understated ect..

So what do we think guys? :D

p.s. i cant have him a race at the lights (not like i would :lol: ), because i have not passed my test yet :rolleyes:

Mito is a smaller car, so should be lighter and therefore faster. Stats seem to back that up. If you were up against a Lupo with 120bhp then it would be faster, because it is lighter etc

My point exactly! The stats back it up in a straight line, so im happy there, i presume it will be quicker in the corners aswell, Q2 diff ect. I suppose the only real way to put this to bed is to take it to a track! Even then i will destroy him due to driver skill ;) i have the fastest lap at wigan go karting if that means anything :p

I guess the two cars are similar enough to make driver skill the main factor in a drag race / through corners.
when you pass your test don't do anything stupid on the road..

The Mito should be quicker. The figures suggest so and i belive Mitos (especailly the petrol ones) are very light for their size. :lol:

Your Mito is 1,080 kg is believe. The Golf 1,215Kg meaning the weight to power ratio is significantly better on the Mito, thus should win convincingly.:D

Maybe somone is a bit geleous of your car but doesnt want to admit its better ;)

I also dont think he took into consideration that my mito is lowered :lol: , better traction/breaking/cornering than the standard aswell ? :thumbs:

If the stats said the VW was quickest they'd believe it and be waving the numbers at you.

It's bigger, heavier, and slower than the Mito. It's not in the same class either, being more Giulietta-size for comparison. In the end it isn't terribly important to how either of you get home from work on a cold night in gridlocked traffic.

You should smile serenely and give them a knowing wink before reminding them they should think Italian when they next change.

i agree, however it would be driving home from college, on a cold afternoon, in a saxo/corsa gridlock! :lol:

Which would end up with a classic case of "you toucha my car, I smasha you face" as Mr. Toby Moody used to say on the MotoGP coverage of Eurosport :lol:
