Going to uni!

Need a cheaper to fix car, that I can fix myself, thats a little cheaper on insurance etc.

General consus on here is that this Clio will never break on me and the ZS will go horribly wrong haha, but 4 years of uni says i'm going to have some big bills for a Clio, whereas the ZS shouldn't be as bad.



sounds like a good reason to me!

what are you going to uni to study? please FFS tell me its not Motorsport related? :wack:

Software Engineering :)

Clearly weren't pushing hard enough Adam, every car has a limit a KA is hardly a handling machine that can withstand 90 odd around a bend trying to chase a ST your never going to catch.

ask paul then because i'm pretty sure he was in the car next to me at ford fair ;)

you just clearly didn't know the limits of your car/talent around silverstone - as not much passed me and paul - straights obviously i was screwed :lol: - but it handles better then you think - just because it's a "ka" - and lol at the fact you had strut braces and coilovers and still went off :P

Don't care.

Doesn't matter how hard you were pushing the KA, you clearly weren't pushing hard enough.

I pushed my car hard, I knew i'd pushed it too hard, but I didn't know what the results would be. I soon found out.

A KA has limits, it's not a supercar. It would likely have spun out just the same,

Not for the first two years, its general computing based. I'd like to go into programming mainly, databases, websites, software, but i've got time to think and a placement year before I go for the specifics.

he's starting to sound like Percy when it comes to Tech eh? except he always tells Percy off.

I've always been very stuck on what to do in Computing, I applied for this course, went and got my grades and had Distinction on everything programming, rather coincidental. I think i'm going for my strong point! haha

no chris just said ka's were shit as they are ka's - which is bollocks.

and the simple fact is - chris pushed to hard just to catch up with mole! there is pushing hard which believe me i was doing - chris should have let mole go :lol:

the ka isn't a supercar - thanks for pointing it out! but when handled that well it had me and paul laughing at the cars that couldnt get by, that's worth its weight in gold :lol:

so stop being a cry baby!

zs's handle well :)

Shut up you pair of women, get a room, make love and listen to the music. That last bit is a song lyric. You are welcome.

I actually said I wouldn't stoop that low.. Because the old ones are rubbish, which is what i'd need to be saving money, and boring pov spec, i'd prefer a ZS, oh and KA's are too girly.

Maybe I should have let Mole go, but it was for the fun of it, thought i'd give it a go. Again, I pushed it beyond it's limits, to see what the final limit was for the car, you clearly didn't not. Doesn't mean the KA handled better than the ZS at all. Just means you didn't push hard enough!

By this way of thinking, my car must have been better than Ry's Teg? As he went off at Curborough but I didn't? And some kit car went off at brands but I didn't? Your KA must be a god to be better than mine and all of those cars! :)

And at what point was I being a cry baby? You just can't take it that your not the best driver in the world!

not at all - i can drive - but i am no where near the best driver in the world :lol:

sportka's are known to handle well - if you can't handle that fact then it's your problem :)

if i had pushed any harder i would have spun the ka on a few corners - but i knew where the limits were! on the long corner onto the old start/straight - paul was convinced the left rear would let go and spin us - but i held it as i knew it was on the limit :)

steering feel = win - that's why i prefer non power steering as you can feel more (granted parking is a bugger!)

look it's not a contest - but you can't say ka's are rubbish as they look girly - as that is false. same goes for a fiat 500! hardly macho but not a bad car :)

and seeing as around ford fair - with paul in the car - we were out cornering st's/zs's and others (minus straights 94bhp was a fail!) i can say the ka does handle well!
