Track days absolutely rule.
170 bhp isnt an impressive sounding figure but in a well sorted chassis it will fly. Front wheel drive cars are often ruined with too much power.
That will put a lot of stuff to shame on a track, especially a twisty one. My track car was running 121 at the wheels. Not a huge figure but it handled so well. M3's , evo's and impreza's would come flying past on the straights but hold me up in the corners.
Thankfully this new 5 door has the suspension off the track car and will shortly have the engine too.
Yeah, with todays figures it is not alot but people forget about the power to weight ratio.... I have had E36 M3's etc... This may not be as quick down the straights but the corners are where it really counts with this! Many so called "hot hatches" have tried and failled! I just think "at 34 years old" if it brings a smile to your face, that is FUN!
