    Hey everyone!

    This is how fast mine S3 is with just a Heron chip and everything else is stock.

    Sorry for the bad launch, but it´s a bit hard to launch, when you are holding a camera in your hand and keeping the car straight:racer:

    It was done in germany in the middle of the night with no other cars around.

    It has around 300 HP, but it is faster then some more powerfull cars:arco:

    Nice and fast just how we like it, BUT becouse there is no outside shot SOME people may think it's a rolling roll.

    It works out at about 0-100mph ' roughly 13 seconds ( 160kmph ) which with a remap should be achievable.

    One handed though , good driving!

    It is more like 12,5 sec:) and with a better launch it can do 0 - 160 Km/h in 12 sec. flat.

    Haha...well I have had the car for almost a year now, and we have some nice long roads in Copenhagen. I must have been in the right places at the right time I think:happy:

    It´s more like people want to race you cause you are driving a S3:sly:

    Cayenne Turbos are very fast, but if you launch the S3 properly you will stay ahead and as the speed rises the gap will be bigger.

    I've seen vids of Cayenne Turbos beating RS4's to 100mph...a standard one will do 100mph in 11.2 sec.

    A cayenne turbo is not going to beat a RS4 to 100 mph. The old Cayenne Turbo did 0-100 in 14,5 sec. The new one does it in 11,4 sec. RS4 does it in 10,9 sec.
    The times are from EVO mag.
    It might have been the old one, but difference isn´t that big with the new one either. I think that the S3 have the edge above 200 km/h.

    Yeah thats something I dont want to do:no:


    aiculedtzu>> Yeah I saw your videos from that drag race event, I was impressed by the times you ran that day. Your best time was 13 sec. flat I think.

    The most powerfull car I have raced was the Mercedes CLS 63 AMG, obviously it is faster with 517 hp, but it was wet that day:eyebrows:
    He couldn´t get traction so smoked him a couple of times. Hahaha
    He was like :wtf: that little S3 is fast! He was like if it wasn´t wet and... I was like yeah let me get you a violin:nyah:

    Thanks Sundoo, now i run mid 12s on a quarter mile.

    And yes, the S3 is a very capable little car on 1/4 mile if it is driven properly.

    I can well believe that mate. I've seen your launches..:salute:
    I'm aiming for 12's in mine this year with the perfect launch (bit harder in FWD;)).
    Did you remove anything out of the car mate. Back seats for instance?

    I didn't remove anything from the car because the rules of that specific competition do not allow me to do so. Also i cannot use racing tires, only road legal.

    I've only ever had a few people want to play.

    Last generation STi Impreza which I level pegged with (pre-bluefin) pulling off a roundabout onto the dual carriageway.
    Focus ST, Z4 3.0 and 3.2TT on the dual carriageway left for dust.
    Mini Cooper S, cross country - smoked him although they are at least a match through mid corners (not so when the corner opens up and you can get the power on earlier)
    Some ned in a bright orange Mk1 Sti impreza (post-bluefin) - roundabout onto dual carriageway and he didn't see which way I went:whip:

    Have to say I am keen post-Bluefin to see how it stacks up against some more opposition :)
