    Default Motor magazine 0-100 times ?

    Can anyone clairfy for me if Im reading the times correctly.

    It suggests the 180 to be quicker than a Clio Sport over 0-100.

    oooooooooo the 182 now theres a car I wish had been round now.

    the Cli Sport was about 1/10th slower (mid-late 7's).

    interestingly the st170 shows up mid 8's. Bizarre

    C'mon smokey, you shouldn't underestimate your ability to read 0-100 times from a magazine!

    Which clio sport was it? The 172 or 182? I don't see what's so confusing, unless the times were vastly different, you would expect their times to be more or less the same (within 4/10ths either way) since their power/weight is also more or less the same.

    edit: Just read your latest post. Bloody hell, 1/10th..you sure it was a WHOLE 1/10th? LOL

    8.5 sec for the ST170 sounds about right too. What's so confusing about that?

    clio 172

    its just that you hear some clio owners saying its a late 6's car. I personally found both cars to have similar speeds, with the clio being quicker off the line. Just wanted to make sure there isnt something hidden in the times, like maybe weather conditions etc.

    have a closer look at that link, there's two videos of the clio182 up against rexies. He wins both runs although the rexies look a bit off their game, shitty launches.

    0-100 times are bs. don't bother reading them, you'll just make yourself sick brutha.
