Id like rear or four wheel drive, but if i find a nice front wheel drive id like the sound of a V6.

What are the FTO's like, this one in particular?

Would i be better off with an ST24 RSA?

Or how about this, a scooby doo!

Clicky

0-60 etc?

scooby will be slower than your escort

fto's arent that great mivec best of the bunch

a 2L N/A scooby will be slower than a 1.6 zetec????

How???

 

doubt n/a 2ltr scooby would be much quicker then a scort...remember big car, poor transmission losses, i've beaten one whilst driving a 90bhp VTR :rolleyes:

 

by all acounts, fto's are best when parked up, as they handle poorly

as for ST24, I love 'em 'cept for the disgusting wheels, but i dunno if the way they drive would really suit ur style of driving, Jay. Although, if ur this "changed man" it might LOL. :baby: :D

 

what i mean is, they're good power etc, but it's the way the power is delivered, big engine, smooth as fcuk, but is a bigger car and will lack "chuckability" in some ways compared to smaller cars

FTO, only bother with the very rare manual, 0-60 is about 6.5secs outta the punney 2.0 v6, which puts out 200bhp. Quarters are around 15secs. And IMO one of THE best looking cars on the road, and until they realease the Intergra Type R Rev3 was the the best handling FWD drive car. A real drivers car that dont want the expensive running of a turbo. Milvec is Mitsibitshi version of the VTEC. ALthough there are NO performance difference between the Two, and both Milvec and Non-Milvec's share exactly the same performance figures. The Milvec tend to hold there value more.

 

Mivec v6

V6 24-valve MIVEC Engine

 

The sophisticated, powerful (200BHP@7500rpm) 2.0-litre V6 MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing and lift Electronic Control) DOHC engine switches automatically between two sets of cam lobes: one for deft low rev response with muscular yet controlled torque, and the other for execptional top-end power. The result is a silky smooth ride at steady speeds, with a resonant, throaty bass roar that thrills the spirit when you decide to put the throttle down.

 

Non-Mivec v6

V6 24-valve Engine

 

The powerful 2.0-litre V6 DOHC engine is almost as powerful as it's sophisticated MIVEC counterpart, with flexible torque and outstanding peak power of 180BHP at 7000rpm (a mere 500rpm lower than the MIVEC unit). The result is a more refined engine note at high are RPM with minimal loss in performance. Like the MIVEC engine the 2.0-litre V6 DOHC engine is most at home at high revs

 

The 1.8 is worth advoiding like the plague, although the manual is faster than any non-cosworth escort.

There are two revisions,

 

Rev1 = 1994 - 1997

Like any bulk manufactured vehicle there are many different trim levels. These can be found Herefor the face lift, and Here for the pre-facelift.
