There I was, just came back from Autozone (Yeah I hang out there alot!) the traditional lights at Chicago drive <winks to warlord>.. And there it was, nudging in small increments... The lights went green and as per usual I SLAMMED! but the bastard was BEATING MA ASS! Every second was a 1ft then 2ft... fu*k! I was at least pushing
6k rpm, didnt make no difference!

Teaches me to race an Intrepid when I am driving the wifes Escort! :) Got ya going ! :)
ner-ner! :) My `cord is on Jack stands :)

Yup sure is Warlord.... The Escorts in the States are nothng to the ones in the UK... If you own an XR3i (Sporty Escort) then its the UK version of Rice, well in my eyes it is anyway, NCBrit might think otherwise :)

Here are some pics of it click
here

NCBrit, still would like a Cosworth :)

Fast, not really, not by todays standard and the cars in America, the fog lights are just the effect... Or for spying on nude girlies in your local forest... see, depends! :)

The engine in those is a 1.6 Single point injection... its been ages since I looked inside one... NCBrit might know the specs.

Nah...I wouldn't say American cars are generally faster. For performance we have the Corvette, Viper, F-Body twins, and Mustang.

The Brits have all the Lotus iterations cars from TVR, Jaguar, Aston Martin...hell even some models of Bentley or Rolls Royce could give a smack to a lot of our cars. Not to mention the UK as well as most of Europe gets to have exotics from Japan and other netherworlds we can only salivate over.

Ok, thats it. I'm moving.

227hp aand 220ft/lb is pretty good for a little car like that.

(Or at least thats what the last MK5 Cos' produced with the turbo 2.0L.)

Sure does sound like Subaru Imprezza WRX numbers. I think the car is about the same size also. Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... :)

**** no, I would never drive an XR3 or a Cosworth.

For true UK rice, you should take a look at www.maxpower.co.uk

And just like Si, I havent looked under the hood of one of those things in years.

LHSer, Agreed, they do rock, my friend owned a Sierra Cosworth.. damn that moved... Warlord, I would say in general yes, American cars are faster than Domestic UK but I havent been to the UK for a while so I dont know whats new...

But then again.. Lotus.... TVR.. Aston Martin.... well lets not go there huh :)

Yeah the MK5 Cos is similar to the American version of the WRX, only difference being it was a 2 door hatch (3 door?) and the last one rolled off the line in early 1995.
