Oh my god I thought I was going to be the only person that had one of these but you beat me to it!! Your right as well with 160bhp boy did they fly but mine just wouldn't stop, three fast corners and the breaks had overheated and turned to sponge!
After the citroen BX I'll admit it I had a series 2 Escort RS turbo, tweaked to bits dyno'd at 170bhp and lethal torque steer on anything but a bone dry road.
I know it's not a hot hatch but had a Subaru legacy RS after that, best car I've ever owned bar none! 280bhp sequential twin turbo so hardly any lag at all,4 wheel drive and stuck to the road like sh1t to a blanket, never lost to anything in it (on the track of course your honour)!
Ahh those were the days.....
