View Full Version : The first scooby scalp!!!!!

31st July 2000, 12:46
Lets gets these Cosworth posts, more aplenty!

Yesterday was the first real chance I had to test the new performance (had a 340bhp conversion done by PTS last week) of my Escort Cossie yesterday.

While travelling to Silverstone yesterday with Harj (he was in his Scooby and I was in my Cossie), we came across a nice bit of road. He was in front and flatted it from an island in second/third, I thought right you bastard you want some! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif I followed suit, but he was gaining ground http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/mad.gif. Obviously he was on boost before me and my mega turbo lag (compared to the Scooby) didnt help!

Right then, I thought, next challenge! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

I then got in front of Harj (not by racing, just cruising), and I had the say of when the race would start!!! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

We both came through an island (he was immediately behind me), so I flatted it on boost in 2nd, he realised wot was going on and did the same. At first he was keeping up with me through 2nd and 3rd (I thought SHIT, this is embarrassing, all this talk i've given him about Cossies http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif), he obviously knew he couldnt overtake me (we were on a dual carriage way) but still!!!!! I peaked out in 3rd and rammed it into 4th, things then started to change. At this point the 6 YEAR OLD BEAUTY, began to make ground on the Scooby. I think they call it COSSIE TORQUE http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Soon after this Harj let off the gas (which by all accounts, was a mixture of sevear earbashings from his missus, and the fact he was losing ground)

Well in true Stef style, I claim my first Scooby (and not the last) scalp! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif This is even more satisfying as many people are aware that Harj's car is one of the TRUE powerful Scoobys in the country!

But this only reiterates what I have always said. A good set-up Cossie will always beat a Scooby in the mid/high range, due to its superior torque! - Both cars having circa 300 bhp!

Somehow though I think the race will be different once harj gets his killer Skyline. As he only just said to me this morning, "I won't spoil your Victory.....this time!!!"

Shaun me old clocker!!!

It was a good blat for around 3 seconds as my heavily pregnant wife was sitting beside me who actually pinched me when she heard the turbo spinning up, OUCH!!!!!

As Shaun states I was also in 4th with my foot down for 2 seconds until the screams from Hell were echoing in my ears, If any of you have met my wife you beleive me!!

If Shaunee boy is so so confident, what about we put it to the test for real? Name the time and place you mobba!! You would need more than 400BHP to take me! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I don't know, as soon as he bought another Cossy, he changed to one of those RS Truth Fabricators that we all read on the RS Board.

Harj...The Shaun Killer http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Yeah, I know this should not of been in the Cosworth technical section......but some things have to be proclaimed http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Harj the thing is YOU KNOW the facts are what I said. Missus or no missus, you have met your match (powerwise) http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

John, Anders or Ian, close this thread, as I have made my point of a victorious moment in history!!! Escort -Whupp ass- Cossies http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Shaun - Back to boring technical stuff Zzzzzz

31st July 2000, 13:49
Seems you haven't replied to my challenge then Shaun? wonder why? http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif I thought you were man enough, the only way you can ever beat a decent motor is having the driver to take my wife as a passenger!!! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/eek.gif

Harj.... http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

31st July 2000, 18:18
You stated that your car now has 340bhp compared to Harj's 300bhp. How the hell can you claim his scalp in 'Steffy Style'?
Only when you beat a car with MORE power than you do you join this elite club! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Where's the fun in being faster than a car with less power? I don't know....bloody Cossie owners eh? http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif
See you at Dono perhaps? http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif


31st July 2000, 18:21
Truth fabricator? who ever could you be talking about http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Saw you in the pit lane and on track at RS day - should have come up and said hello but I was all over the place with so much to do and too little time!
Shaun - why were you not on the track?

31st July 2000, 19:28
Stef, that's a CLAIMED 340 conversion not actual.....when I get on PS's rollers, then we will see. http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

I dont know you scooby lot know more than anybody about making bullsh1t power claims dont ya http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Already had one engine let go on a previous cossie. Suppose I havent the bottle......at the moment. http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

And Stef, dont even go there about Cossie reliability ay http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif


31st July 2000, 21:07

1st August 2000, 00:07

The only way Shaun could ever beat a Scooby is by Power Vs Power! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

In ref to my challenge! he bottled it. Seems Shaun will never learn hey! The reliability on my car has been trumendous considering 3 hard track days and caning the car on weekends with 1.4bar of boost http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif


1st August 2000, 07:26

I noticed you talking to Stef infront of my car, Im the one that said "Hit Him" http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif next time mate!

1st August 2000, 07:48
LOL - I was supposed to be meeting everyone off the RSOC board at 2PM so was just about to go there. Definately next time.
Get yourself to Bruntingthrope to see how well your car really runs on thursday for the Peformance ford magazine shootout.

1st August 2000, 08:30
Bottled it!!!!!???????

I think your the TRUTH FABRICATOR HERE! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

Your the one who said you wasnt interested because of your brakes - Yawwwwwn - and the fact we MIGHT get caught by the Police on the M1 - Zzzzzzzzzzzz.

WHY do you ALWAYS insist in BENDING the truth! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

Anyway where's this sales receipt for the "Susposed" deposit you have put down on your imaginary Skyline??????? Cause for somebody that's put 15,000.00 deposit down, I would expect some documentation! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

Shaun. (The Back-Stabber!!!!) http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

1st August 2000, 08:48
You never brought the car to my house last night chicken!!! Bring it on Boyo!

Receipt for deposit, no probs matey! youve probably never seen that much money before http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif Forget the Skyline, just compare our current cars for now because you will only cry when the weekend comes!

Take your car to Bruntinthorpe day as Martin said and Walk the Walk you wimp http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Harj.. The Shaun Slayer!! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

The Escort that did 3.53 was certainly a mad car...respect.
On the track, I wasn't passed by any RS2000 or the ex-btcc RS500 so http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/tongue.gif !

Shall we start on here as well? lol


3rd August 2000, 19:07
The Escort actually did 3.93, but I guess it's still not bad. http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/smile.gif


9th August 2000, 21:57
And this thread is considerd 'technical' is it? http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif
Just wondering.... http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

But, I do agree with everything that Shaun's says, even though it hurts me to do so!

Thankyou for re-educating me.

Shaun I love you http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

What the hells this???? http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/eek.gif
Shaunee editing my posts???? http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/eek.gif
Industrial espionage, that's what this is?

Editing other peoples posts is a scary thing to do, luckily it says who edited it though! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Yes this is supposed to be a FULLY technical forum. This thread was created before I became a moderator.

So for the matter of peace and harmony, I am going to close it.
