If the bubble 200 RSM had at the Waterman was anything to go by, get your wallet out - it was pretty quick!

Depends on what you want. For a track day car, £2k will get you something that will piss all over a T series transplant.

If you want outright straight line speed and bugger the handling, then T series is the way to go.

You still havent been taken out in a well setup T16 engine'd car yet Stu? or your trackdays have straights that are less than 100m long?

A T16 car will piss over a VVC in all areas IMO, IME and on paper.

Although reading again, i guess sticking £2k into a VVC car is likely to make a faster car than spending £2k+ on getting a T16 into the car. Could Tune VVC well for £2k aswell as decent suspension and a bigger brake setup. :D

Yep, I do mean having spent that kind of money.

A reasonably modded VVC will keep up with a Turbo T in the twisty bits, but get blitzed on the straights. But anyone can plant their right foot.
