Default Re: Conrnering speed of a Skoda Octavia vRS in comparison with a Honda Civic with Kon

The VRS is a heavy car, compared to a Civic, so getting all that mass to change direction fast & hard is not going to be easy without some major mods. Just Newtons laws at work!

and he was also comparing them both saying that the civic needs a good exhaust to sound good, but the RS sounds amazing without anything.

Sorry for a long rant, i know that all this sounds nuts. I drove an RS and simply loved the performance. but there were none available when i wanted to buy it. So i went in for the civic and am thoroughly happy with my decision.

Oh btw one more thing. the guy in question does not even own an RS. He drives an accent. The RS belongs to his friend in Hyderabad, whom he went to visit for a few days. He is planning on picking up a second hand RS, if he gets a good deal.

Get your car and his car to a track and rip them. 190 on normal roads is a bad thing. A small imperfection or a gust of wind can put experienced drivers in a frenzy. 190 in a civic or a Vrs could be possible but hopefully you have the safety features for roll over etc.

Thanks

Even if you prove him wrong, Your life wont change for better, but you have a lot to loose in case of any mishap trying these stunts. All The Best.
