    I think it would depend if its a 8v or 16v and what 689r said mods etc.

    both pretty much standard apart from breathing mods, all interior still there ECT...

    theres only 1 way to find out....

    8 or 16v?

    If its the 150bhp one, you might beat it from a rolling start.

    But from a 60 roll the thing should dust you, they make around 150lbs ft too. Which is awhole lot more than ur b16.

    From a dig - corsa

    From a roll, would be closer but still corsa I would imagine.

    i got smashed by a red top corsa in my jordan when i was on the way to northampton to see my misses at uni...i was gutter but will NEVER under estimate them cars again!!
  11. izard-industries Top Contributor ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

    16v is the red top

    And i think i could keep up with one up to 80 ish, but obv mine doesnt pull as quick after that...

    i can't beleive were saying corsa's are faster than Civics, i'm leaving this game :lol:

    jokes - don't hate me
  13. izard-industries Top Contributor ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

    Theres always going to be something faster out there

    Thats about right tbh. An XE corsa will prob have better pulling power in 4th n 5th.
  15. izard-industries Top Contributor ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

    I know someone with one, might give it a go and see what happenes!

    I've never been in an NA red top corsa, I've been in a redtop turbo and it was fucking ridiculous, but i raced a mate in an astra gsi(2.0 16v), it was cammed and proper loose, mega miles and an ex track car and that was very very close

    if your putting out 157bhp or what ever u got on the rollers im pretty positive a stripped corsa evenwith 150bhp will pretty much piss on a Civic! mine ran 177bhp and it ate me over a 2nd gear to 5gear run!

    Every 2.0 Corsa/Nova I've raced always struggled off the line! No weight, too much power/torque! I would pull an easy 2 car lengths straight away.

    From a roll it was more or less even. Depended on the mods/driver!

    I was reeling in a 2.0 Corsa at Hams Hall whos passenger was off here not so long ago...Put a spotted thread up for me. Anyone?

    I got a C20LET Corsa & and a few b16 EG's, never raced them though..

    Corsa being what it is (absolutely gay) is first car I ever drove at 17, torque steer and scary to drive, Civic is easy to drive compared lol.

    Never got someone else to drive one, or act raced against a Civic to compare the Corsa though. couldn't say tbh.

    lol didnt really get anywhere in this post did i?
