A3 vs S3 A power to weight thingy (cant think of a title thats best I can do lol)
Today I cleaned the car, discs went rusty colour (as they do).....so I just went out to shine the discs a bit, gets round the corner pullig out on to the main road (A63) and a rather nice looking silver 02 plate S3 8L with black roof and wheels passes, oooh I thought.
He wasn't supporting the ASN gang tattoo on his car BTW lol.
We ended up doing what you do, right foot down. I thought he would dust me, I thought wrong! I was attached to him! granted I couldn't get past but I was there just a wing away.
We ended up at some lights in town and he said "what u running" I proceeded to tell him the usual 1.8t K03s AUM s2kfilter std exhaust (till moday) and a map last time I checked was 203bhp (using maf values).........he was smiling till I told him that figure.
I asked what about you and he basically had everything inc miltek bla bla bla (very nice car tbh)......then the figure 330bhp to which I said calmly but smugly "wow really? I did quite well didn't I then?"
Then the lights changed and I quickly told him to visit ASN.
So if I have 203bhp and he had 330bhp how the fk did keep with him? Is this where the power to weight kicks in? or has my engine got a secret stash of nos? or is it he's not giving me a real figure? is he a pants driver? I dunno. I did notice he had a dodgy bottom end rattle when he set off, but that's it.
Answers below please (smug face) lol
