No you won't...not noticably anyway...the big turbo S3s come into their own above 80MPH...Quote:

And if you are a straight line hero...you should be aware that decent suspension lets you use the power and torque you have efficiently...as opposed to letting the damn thing bog down and wallow as you try to use 350 BHP through soggy suspension.
I suspect a well set up, properly suspended S3 will be just as quick off the mark as a 350 BHP car that goes 'plane spotting (front lifting, causing wheelspin and rear squatting, hitting bump stops and causing wheelspin...for the hard of understanding) as it can use the full power it has without triggering the ESP/TCS or breaking the tyres grip.
Suspension is not just about corners...anyone who thinks it is it foolish and uninformed.
And you propose to deploy 350 BHP / 300 lb-ft of torque how exactly, if your tyres are that bad?Quote:
i dont think its so much the brakes are crap, but it's more down to tyres, my abs always cuts in, so any brakes cant do much more than mine are doing now
