Yeah, 0-60 on a straight, the Ti will winn hands down, but the BRM puts the power down better as it uses the LSD from the Tomcat and a racing suspension setup and will kill a Ti on bends haha.

I don't want one for racing though, just a bit more fun than the 75.

The 600s where never known for their handling raftl

The extra 50bhp however in a straight line makes a difference.

More cubic capacity too which helps... but the T-series is an old engine runing at its limits and the 600 is heavy, so its not really 197bhp vs 143bhp, its actually more like 197bhp vs 185bhp on a p:w ratio when you consider the 600 is about 30% heavier than the 200.

Tis a shame they never put the 160 into the BRM frown

raftl Not its still 197bhp v 143 bhp.

Power to weight will bring the 600 down, not the 200 up wink

Don't really matter how you want to look at it, the 600 is 30% heavier than the BRM, so if you want to say the 600 is 197bhp, then in comparison the BRM would be about 185bhp going on figures of p:w.

Or you can choose to look at it vice-versa and say the 600 is only going to be around ~150bhp on a p:w ratio.

600 is 140bhp/ton
Vi / BRM is 134bhp/ton

grin

BHP / ton however is only a factor in a straight line. Less weight is always better for cornering and braking smile

Of course smile

Id go for more cc and power in a drag race, but the 200 will own the 600 on the track as standard and thats without it being the BRM performance orientated setup.

Btw, I have no beef with the Accord I mean 600 lol, but I was in my mates Ti last summer at an MGR meet, and we took on a 200 Coupe VVC and a BRM and we blew them both on the straight line, but when it came it to a corner the 600 was just so cumbersome - fortunately there was a lot more straight and only two roundabouts lol.

One lad at the MGR NW meets is running a T-Series turbo in a ZR though - best of both worlds lmao.
