    Cool Went to the fast show at santa pod yesterday! WOW!

    Hello all!

    Took the S3 to Santa Pod yesterday and ran a 15.6 @ 90mph... Not too bad to say it's standard! :D I did have a couple of problems however... If I gave it too much gas and clutch pop, the clutch slipped it's t*tties off, not enough gas, and it bogged down and bounced like it was being fuelled with old mattress springs! -.-

    Before anyone says "change your clutch then" I have a new clutch, reconditioned gearbox and DMF in the pipeline! lol It's just finding time and additional funds to do it!

    Anyway!!! Did anyone else go? I saw a few other A3 and S3s knocking around

    I had a great time there and if anyone hasn't tried the quarter mile yet then I seriously recommend it! The adrenaline rush is unbelievable!

    That's it really...

    Cheers
    Ben

    My friend I work with was there but in his nova (I know bit of a chav mobil lol but he's got 3 vags) and spun a bearing on his fresh built engine for this season on his first run and was gutted as you imagine but it was all down to his new dry sump pump being assembled wrong in the factory

    I will be joining him later this year for a meet or 2 and may give mine a run or 2 although won't be beating his Na nova as he's down to mid 12s and won his class twice out of the last 3 years at USC

    Good on you for trying it. Shame about the issues. Would have still thought the S3 would have managed a better time. My A4 1.8t 150bhp before mapping did a 15.9 at Shakey and even a not so healty S3 should be 0.3 quicker lol.

    Going back to Shakey on the 22nd April if anyone fancies it.

    I went up on a old garage courtesy VAN. 1.7 Diesel Vauxhall

    They shafted my mate for labour on and engine fitting - so we run it down the strip and blew it's head gasket.

    I went in my RS, thought about doing some runs and thought better of it lol.

    Thought as shows go it was pretty poop, no way near as good as inters, it was full of chavs (bite me plan b) and minging girls in crop tops with their bellys hanging out sitting on cars (is that a microfibre dress? no? then get the f##k off the bonnet) AND the worst show and shine I have ever seen apart from a nice little polo.

    I saw you in your motor though benjiman, looked good.

    Well with the bogging down at the start I was easilly loosing 0.5 of a second.. Plus I had my mrs in the car with me so im guessing another 0.2 or so... So I was happy to get a 15.6 haha

    The faster of the 15.6 times was when the clutch slipped its tits off :D

    Going to get a new clutch and possibly get a new SMF.. Less comfort yes... but less to go wrong

    Yeah think it was pretty stupid of pod to allow passengers. Makes it more like crail in Scotland and that is poor and chavvy.

    Anyway yeah should be much better with a good clutch.

    That's a mega quick time! Are you running a 5spd or 6spd gearbox? The S3 gearbox is ok for standard power, but once remapped, it could do with slightly longer gearing to get the best out of it!

    Greyish body with white bonnet looks like a tip but that's the best bit about it
    He's managed to get it to 250bhp which isn't to bad for Na 2.0 weighing next to nothing was aiming for 270/280 on his new piston rod and cam setup but all went wrong on the first outing when was still running it in a bit after first mapping session

    I'll see if I can find a YouTube video as know there's a few on there
