    Apparently it was standard except for a faulty DV and a misfire on pot 3.

    Oh, and I read something about the handbrake being on too.......:)

    yeah the golf was quick but you could clearly see the rs4s brake lights lit up for ages at the start and at the end the rs4 floored it in front that guy was toying with him clearly you gotta admit that nhn

    What you talking about cause dont know which video you watched lol, but the RS4 slowed down for him, then the golf slowed down to get level, the RS4 was pretty much level or just in front as you can see the comparison in front door windows, then the Golf honked horn, then they launched of & the Golf left him standing, you can see that the Golf at the end slowed down & the RS4 didnt so it gave the appearance of the RS4 speeding of, he canned him simple as & I just had my eyes tested yesterday with 20/20 so isnt that, lol

    you can clearly see the RS4 Avant is carrying bricks in his boot.... :shrug:

    I would hardly say this video footage proves anything concrete... for every vid you can show of someone beating an RS4, I'm sure you could find the opposite too! Although to be fair RS4 owners are less likely to slap them on the internet and don't make such a big deal of it, as it happens soo often :slap:

    Yep, Poor Klauster. If you own an RS4 you're either a target for folks like you, or a **** swinger for sticking up for yourself?



    We tried that at GTi International last year after another thread of a similar nature. Don't remember seeing anyone put up their times afterwards though.

    He is a man of very few words - but when he speaks, it tends to be pretty symbolic.
    I once heard him say "War does not determine who is right; war determine who is left". But then he followed that up with "Virginity like bubble, one prick - all gone" and although he's right I was a bit worried :undwech:

    500 miles, 10 hours driving, £150 in fuel - each way! It's a bit of a hike for a few runs down the strip.


    Edit: - F1 this weekend so definitely busy!

    Be amazed if Klausters RS4 can even haul its fat ass down the strip with the extra weight of that plastic wrap.....;)

    He will take it In the spirit it was intended Im sure.:icon_thumright:

    Just watched that clip actually, assuming the RS4 was trying, thats a rapid Golf.

    Dont think the RS4 driver will lose too much sleep though......

    I think the RS4 driver should be forever in his debt as he didn't give up the details of the driver...

    Surely this thread should read that a mapped S3/Ed30 is fast, if its as fast, or quicker than an RS4. Sixty in under 5 seconds and 100 in under 11 isn't slow, but what it does say is how competent a remapped 2.0TSFI engine can be.

    Just my tuppence....

    Do you think that's why they came down so hard on him? For not playing ball and giving the other chap up? Gistapo :(
