Doh, should have looked at your sig
went against a new Golf Edition 30 thing which was remapped to 300 brake and the owner was not happy at all at me beating him in fact he said he might get rid!
had Jojos S3 and a golf Mk1 soft top (driver was wearing pink pants,saw him getting his times...FREAK!)
A scalp is a scalp so you'll have to forgive me for not dissing the driver of the ed as I had a good chat with him afterwards and he's a nice bloke who knew a bit about cars.
My S3 isn't seeing quicker than 14.6 and I think I'll have backing that I don't hold back when doing the straight line fairy bit......but am open to tips if you have any more than change gear when the pull starts to fade away?
It wasn't for me, as I got it about 6 times and just couldn't get that extra 1/10th to squeeze into the 13's.. Best was a 14.002 @ 99mph14.0 for a mapped LCR is pretty good. Doubt we weould see that up here on our ****** 1/4 miles.
Ermm speed at which you change gear? sorry but I just look at the rev counter when doing it and as for bogging down that is dismissed by the ESP button.
sorry but a standard S3 must be quicker where you are.
oh and I'm not your 'mate' as I don't have a ed30
That bloke needs to get rid, as he obviously can't drive for $hit..
My mapped ED30 has run a 13.2 @ 107mph, so if he is getting beat by a 8L S3 doing 14.6's, he needs to have a word with himself..
On topic though. A mapped S3 should see 14.0 with the right driver. My Mapped LCR did (same engine/power etc) but with FWD...
Standard ones with the right launch can see 14.5's, mate's use to..
All depends on the driver and how much hammer you want to give the car really..
I would say over a 1/4 they would be fairly even. As the S3 should get a lead off the line (traction) and the LCR will pull that back once rolling. So the times would be similar, but the terminal speeds higher on the LCR..The LCR's are generally quicker over the 1/4 than an S3 with the same mods due to them being lighter because they dont have the haldex system (as long as the lcr has a driver then can get it off the line)
not sure myself, mates just bought an 04 reg 1.8 20vt seat leon cupra r, although it says on the logbook 185bhp and its front wheel drive, it weighs around 200 if not more kgs less than my remapped 215bhp a3 quattro the engine and everything under the bonnet is the same however i much prefer the bucket seats (fully electric) that the seat has. seems as everyone said that was suppose to be quicker than mine we had a little play and i dont know how but ive beat it! definatly see the quality in the builds tho, u buy audi! makes the impossible possible ;-)
