    I hope not Joe. As it happens the Zetec is probably 900KG and 125 bhp,and NA so quite nippy for what it is. Sounds like you did the best and let the idiot go tbh, just be happy with the fact you know your car is better, it's what i keep in my mind

    i'm ashamed to say i'm guilty of doing rediculous speeds in tea time traffic albeit not swapping lanes or anything like that to prove a point against impreza's on a few occcasions and had to give myself a mental slap..killing someone or getting banned or jail for racing plonkers cant be good

    OMG I thought I was in the joke section. A ZETEC S, not even a ST. My old Fiat Bravo 1.6 used to beat them and that was like a double decker ferry compared to it my S3.

    Nar fair point some people would rather crash and hurt others to just say to their mates or girlfriend their car is faster lol.

    At the end of the day even though he was faster then you (though the traffic) Your in a nice comfy S3 with heated seats, CD player and 225BHP.....and hes in his "well sick" Fiesta that breaks down every 20 miles with his lovely cloth seats and a tape player. You know you've got a better car so dont let it bother you.

    Its easy to go buy a Corsa/Nova and stick a big turbo on it and upset RS4's and lambos but the man in the RS4/lambo will laugh because hes in a nice car not a shed with a turbo.:laugh:

    I agree Minty. Racing... on a public road. Stupid really. Go to a track for that.

    I never bother racing anyway, although on the motorway I will on occasion keep up with something but when they start getting daft or above 100 I back off completely. Not risking my neck, others necks, and my all important license on an irresponsible blast.

    Besides, if anything happened to me and I survived, my other half'd kill me anyway... Can't win. :zen:

    If a barry boy in a fiesta tries to take me on I tend to just point and laugh and continue my journey at the same speed in comfort.

    I used to own a black MK5 zetec s around 4 years ago when they expensive cars. they were great fun. to be honest mate you should have creamed it to be honest they are only 102 bhp. though a lot of lads do put the 125 bhp 1.7 puma engine in them.

    I still have a soft spot for zetec s, i still look at them now, my one was black with Red trim mint car. sad to see it go, never had as much fun in a car as i did when i owned that

    owned by to many chavvy dicks now though

    You shouldnt even give a chav in a Fiesta the time of day! Just let them go, and wait for something that is supposed to faster than an S3 to come along - I never race anything that I am supposed to beat, as you can only lose!

    Wait for those Scoobies and you can surprise yourself...

    I think those ST's are even slower than the zetec s's lol. Took a friend out in the S3 who owns one (an ST) and he was wondering how much it would cost him to get a slightly older S3 lol.

    The Zetec S Fiestas are pretty nippy to be fair, add a bell end behind the wheel and they'll take care of any decent driver in any decent car in those conditions

    No prizes for arriving in a body bag though.

    Old shape and curvey shape?..... you can drop the 1.6T into that and a quick tune up to 200hp for not very much ££.

    mate used to own a 1.3 Sunburst orange B plate fiesta, steel wheels, slightly lower.... 230hp under the bonnet, Bilstien all round, custom pipe work, etc...... very, very quick sleeper car.

    Just don't know these days whats under the bonnet!

    But best to avoid getting sucked in, sometimes its just a tool behind the wheel making it look fast

    I too had some fun last night on the way home from footy with a Zetec S. Country lanes mainly with the odd roundabout then straight bit. The S3 had no problems at all. Though i would add that the Fiesta didn't do bad plus mine has been remapped! Guy seemed an ok driver and kept his distance when i backed off then gave a sporting toot as we went our different ways. It was very low with stickers all over it!

    Done sensibly i see no harm in alittle bit of 'comparison'! Its when the idiots that take silly risks try it on that it gets dangerous!

    thats the thing it does not cost a lot at all
    donington park=£130 January-February,£145 March-October,£110 November-December plus you might have to buy some brake pads,fluid,oil after the trackday so all in your talking £300 which might seem a lot but using public roads as a race track is never going to work e.g. when you go off a track,most of the time its onto grass or a gravel pit as opposed to hitting a kerb and flipping the car also everyone on a trackday are aware of the strict gudelines set out in the briefings before you get on the tarmac.

    If you want to race on a public road get yourself over to the ring in Germany and you can make a weekend of it. You won't see too many fiestas over there to smoke though :icon_thumright:
