    Remapped S3 v's Civic Type R EK9

    Wouldn't normally post about a race with another car, however must admit I was very impressed with my S3 last night up against this fast little fu(ker!

    Going uphill on a dual carriageway (from single and overtaking a lorry) starting at 40 I closed the gap from around 8-10 metres to sittin just off his bumper (up to around 110). We slowed at the top to around 85. As we went down the other side he booted it, I left it in 6th (just to see) and enivitably he slowly pulled away to about 20metres in front before his number plate flew off and nearly hit me! (I nearly **** my pants as we were doing over 120 by then!)

    Further down the road I flashed him and he pulled over, explained what had happened and he didn't seem to fussed (more concerned he may have damaged my car! -How considerate!). As we left the lay by (me first) he stayed with me (rather than go back for the plate) and at the next roundabout I booted it again, pulling away from him pretty easily up to a ton.

    May sound like about of saddo posting this, however it made me smile all the way to bed!!!!

    Of course! I just happen to live on a large estate, it's called Cornwall.

    Unfortunately when I relayed the story to the wife on getting home, she was nowhere nearly as impressed as I was.

    In a straight line and on an incline, you would have him licked, since he has very little torque from his 1.6VTEC, it would be a different story on a racetrack, where EK9's can carry silly speeds on turns an S3 can only dream of. I still prefer my S3 as a daily road car though.

    Yup, Honda Civic Type R EK9's are 1.6, I think you guys need to do some research. Google 'EK9' and see what you find.

    i think that this type of thread could be quite healthy in that you dont feel the need to take on a car that you know you'll beat..... your more inclined to play around at lower speeds annoying them.....

    or am i making excuses

    Just thought I'd add to this, I tend not to partake in such shananigans unless im in the mood but a RX8, Lexus IS220, Vovlo S60, Merc 180 Komp all came close in various private meetings... Obvioulsly the S3 came through . Sure they are not the quickest of cars but they did give me something to think about in terms of mapping mine to make sure it never happens again!

    The Volvo and RX8 were the faster ones, maybe they were trying harder?

    Not all RX8's are 231, they do the smaller 192bhp too !!
    My mate had the 231 and off the lights their quick, mines been remapped and i sat with him up to high speeds till their was 2 lanes and i went passed him, if mine had been standard i wouldn't like to predict the outcome....it was quick !!

    What's an EK9? They must be serious.

    Btw... RX8's have s0d all low end power. So you'd be pulling away so early on, that you'd be metres ahead by the time they started to stretch their legs.

    Christ, how can you not know what an EK9 is, you have an EP3 Type R in your sig, EK9 is the Chassis code for the original Japanese only Civic Type R which was followed by the Integra Type R(DC2), which are basically road legal track cars.

    When he said the F1 model, he's on about the limited Edition Yellow Honda Civic Jordan's which ran the standard 1.6 VTEC(B16A?), the Type R had the hardcore B16B with 185BHP. It's a bit of an art to drive Vtecs quick, keeping the engine above 5k revs is the only way to keep things in the Vtec zone which can be a bit tiring out on the public road.
