    A GTi180 with a supercharger - nice setup. Hope you can post up some pics and info in the gallery section and tell us a bit more about this monster. (You need 10 posts before you can upload pics otherwise you end up in the moderation queue. ;))

    well i voted 205 cause ive had 2 of them a 1.4xs and a 1.9gti and i can honestly say i have never driven a car that handles so well in the dry in the wet both over steered alot
    as for comfort i have never driven a car as comfortable as my old 405 estate
    but for styling i would go with the 406 coupe i think its the nicest looking car peugeot have ever made just a shame the v6 was underpowered

    very true but thats why i think their are so many mi16 conversions done to the 205 that engine together with the handling = fun

    Well if I can upload vidoes then I will show you it in action. I have a cuple that are decent quality and one that my cousin did (he works for the BBC so he got a proper camera crew to film it for me). Also, if you want to see it in the 'flesh' then come along to Donny in September when it will be on show and will be tracked for a couple of days. Next years French Car Show have also asked me to be there and providing I can get the time off work I will certainly be there.

    I have just had to have the slip diff re-done as the old one wasn't putting the power to the road in 'Race Mode' (344.72 BHP @ 7200rpm). As you can probably appreciate, trying to put that much power thorugh the wheels has caused MANY problems, hence why I have the car electronically setup to encompasss 'Road', 'Race', 'Drag' and 'Eco' modes. I won't go into too much detail as I can't be bothered haha. But basically, Drag allows all 350BHP to be used, Race limits the car to 230bhp, Road is limited to 200BHP and Eco is 150BHp, I must admit that I haven't ever used Eco mode yet as having 200BHP after 350BHP seems slow so 150BHP would feel massively sluggish. I know of course that its not but its like when James May drove the Veyron at 253mph then 'slowed down' to 70mph. Its disorientating.

    I am going to be looking at NOS aswell but that would only be for Drag and not for racing at all. The Wizards of NOS have already given me timescales and power increases and they quote that my 350BHP could be turned into 420BHP, again, I must admit, that figure scares me a little as 350BHP makes the world go by VERY quickly so what would 420BHP give me in a car that weights a little more than a 106?????

    your car sounds impressive mate :bigsmile: just a quick question even with the lsd with 350bhp do you still have problems getting traction through the front wheels ???
    also where about in the midland are you ?? im from dudley

    Yes of course, even with the new slip diff, if I put the car in 1st and floor it all that happens is I need a new set of front tyres. The smoke is impressive but the price for the new Yoko's isn't. I have to be careful when the car is in Race mode when I'm doing a drag because I need to have a slow start which tends to hinder me when I'm against smaller, lighter cars. Even though they have less power, they have better traction so can put it to the road more effectively and hence they have a chance against the car. On a 1/2 mile drag I'm usually ok, I can start in second, rev to 3500rpm and take my time upto 150mph. On the 1/4 mile though, I tend to lose (doh). Hence why I have had the car setup to have the BHP limited in different modes.

    I am currently looking at a Scooby diff and a Skyline diff but its a lot of modification to make them fit/ work and the ECU would have to be re-mapped (again, this will be the 5th time) for a correct setup. The handling is shocking when the beast is unleashed and I havent ever opened the taps completely on it when I've got it set to 350bhp Drag mode because I don't want to die basically haha.

    I live in Coventry during the week and Northampton at weekends (its easier for work).:)

    the main reason i asked was ive been folowing a diary thread of a mk3 astra and hes recently managed to get it up to 360bhp but even with the lsd he has the same problems as you with traction so his solution is he will be converting it to rwd over the winter months and he reckons that will help is this something you have considered ????

    northampton bet you take advantage living so close to silverstone and the pod i know i would !!

    Yes, indeed, especially as I know one of the track managers so he gets me in while others have to wait.

    RWD will be a very big problem for me but yes I have considered it. The problem I will have is that the 206 has no facility to put a driveshaft to the rear, the exhaust and suspension/ rear axle are in the way slightly. I have thought about locating the exhaust in the sides and then using the exhaust channel as the new location for the driveshaft but as of yet I've not made any decisions. I have also considered 4WD as my mate has a Legacy RS that he's managed to crash slightly (well written it off to be exact lol) and the 4WD system is goin to the scrappy so I have wondered about putting that in??

    Its time as much as anything, I used to own my own business so I could take weeks off when I wanted but now I'm tied in so I can't just drop everything to work on the car. Annoying but its happened. anyway, less stress and loads more money so I shouldn't complain really.:)

    I guess most people on here are commenting on ethier looks or performance (being handling and accel. etc as a whole)

    but not practicality.....

    My grandad did have an R reg 406 2.1 TD and that had a lot of that lovley turbo diesel ooomph

    Every one has a diffrent taste to cars I drive a 406 sti 16v thats good but I climbed in a 407 2.2 sedan and it did it for me so my next car will defnitively be a 407 for the styling,luxuary and big car and more than enough power for me.

    205 GTi, closely followed by 106 GTi and 306 GTi-6 I reckon.

    Pugs are getting uglier and uglier imo.

    lol that a point the 309 is actually a good car, i think it gets forgotten about because the 205 is from the same era and we all know how people fell about those,

    but the 309 does have a lot of advantages, it has more space and it has a wider front a rear track, not to mention that the rear beam and from wishbones will fit straight onto a 205 widening the track on them :p

    also I think the 206 has far too many votes,
    considering the 205, 106 and 306 are in the polls
