    Which one is faster depends on the power they deliver, the gear ratio, the weight and all that

    You certainly don't need a race track to drive two cars to know which is quicker, at least I know I certainly don't! Aslong as you don't use a clock or a second car you're not racing thus staying within the law, there's no need to go above legal speed limits to know which car is quickest.

    The MR2 will be quickest aslong as it has been looked after, regardless of engine, the 1.6 golf is underpowered and overweight.

    Your first post suggests you own both since a few hours ago you said you had an issue with your golf and you start this thread: "I have a MR2.."

    trippin... ^o)

    Judging by the fact that you go 100mph on the motorway - the speed limit is 70mph for a reason. And also that you dont seem to bothered about anything other than speed of a car.

    Get 6 points and redo the test already

    Because when the speed limit was introduced (in what, the 60s?), 70mph was deemed a suitable speed restriction bearing in mind the technical capabilities of contemporary cars.

    And of course, that means that it's not safe to be travelling above 70mph in a reasonably new car. Oh no...

    Anyway, I'd guess the MR2 is faster (assuming the mods dont add too much weight/drag to it :p:)

    Word of advice mate, never say you have been speeding. These guys on here are goody two shoes that would not dream of speeding, ever :rolleyes: and are quick to rip it out of people that do what most other drivers do and speed.

    Seriously, some of the guys on here are worse than the ****ing rozzers. I swear some of them are...or they have been watching to much of that Bounty Hunter show on Bravo and are trying to follow in his footsteps by policing TSR Motoring, so brave...:eek:

    Oh **** i just insulted a mod, oh well. **** HAPPENS.

    gbduo, we share the roads, it's a privilage, not a right to use them. By using them you agree to follow a set of rules, you agree not to put others at risk, just like in real life you agree not to carry a gun in your pocket. If you don't agree, don't use the roads. It's simple as...

    I will happily share the roads with others. What i don't like is people judging my driving and other people's driving just by going slightly fast when they don't know anything. That instant judgement on someone is really stupid and childish IMHO. Just because you speed does not make you a bad driver. If you drink and drive, drive without a licence/insurance/MOT/drug induced i would say that is much more dangerous than speeding.

    If i go above the speed limit on a motorway i am putting others at risk marginally and i accept that. However if someone went around at the speed limits but say their brakes were not working because the car has not got an MOT or they are drunk/high then i am sorry but that is soooo much more dangerous than speeding ever could be.

    I disagree with you, but i am still going to use the roads. The only people that can stop me using the roads are the police if they take my licence away, I would then not use them because i am obvioulsy dangerous as i am going against everything i said above.

    I really cannot see the problem with going 85mph on a motorway, or 100mph at 3am in the morning on a deserted motorway. You are only a danger to yourself. I am certainly less of a danger than the drunk driver going round London's West End at closing time.

    I appreciate your opinion. I just disagree with it!

    Speeding on a motorway is perfectly safe as long as it's deserted and you've got the car to do it in, don't drive like an idiot, and have the skills to handle the car. When my dad and I were coming back down the motorway at 4:00am a few weeks ago, we hit 130mph, but were in a car designed to do those speeds, at a time where we were literally the only car on the road. What isn't safe is speeding when there's other cars about, or in a car not built to handle speed, or in a built up area. My dad never speeds when it's unsafe to do so (built up area, twisty roads, etc).

    I hate the police, there was that rozzer that was doing like 160mph down a busy motorway and was let of "because he was getting acquainted with the new car" WTF!? Does that mean when i get my new car this week i can go out and go flat out and then argue that i had just got the car i was testing its limits...I think not.

    They are all cocks and hypocrits.
