Any one raced the Audi v6 3.2 quattro??


I had a little tussle with one earlier and only just pulled away around 120.... (all on a race track...)

Either there is something wrong with my car or they are quite nippy??

Any ideas guys i have full exhaust mods, plugs, Gtr fuel pump and apexi filter???

Why do i always drive away from a race needing MORE power!!!:swear:

It's not all about power. When I'm driving my 140bhp Golf I can stick to the back end of my mates M3 on the back lanes. On dual carriageways I can get through roundabouts so much faster than him that he has trouble catching me before the next one. In a 1 mile straight line race he'll piss all over me.

IMO It's more about the standard of the two drivers involved, than the car's they're driving. Even at a drag strip or racetrack.

Those Audi's are quick! Its because they dont weight that much with loads of power and Aluminium panels, like in the RS4. sweet motor!

Have just been challenged to a race, my mate lives in Edinburgh is coming down at Christmas, has just told me has an Evo and said we should do the 'Evo V Skyline race. Gulp!

It should have been close m8 for a GTST......

v6 quatro putting out about 250 BHP

& the audi's power to weight is probably better if it's the A3 shape (about same if it's A4/6...) but it's non-turbo power IRC on the audi so your turbo should give more "aggressive" power profile....

Then there is the FWD vs RWD thing ....

It's all down to the driver with the least amount of fear :)

Depends on your mods m8.....also the closer the power match the more it comes down to driver skill. :)

The other thing is if it has that new seamless gearbox shift which pre selects the gears in advance it puts the power down really quickly through the gears.
