    I'm sure it was something daft like 490ish last time I heard Marty, not sure if that's with / without the Gas though.

    Either way, it's fast!!!

    I seem to recall it was around 390-400ish last year Bill, and madly enough, on road tyres with an open diff!

    I never saw it run, but can only imagine traction was more than a small issue :laugh:

    You may be interested to hear that James old turbo is the one that now lives on Adams Leon

    You're right, from that pic, and my utterly stupidly geeky knowledge of activity across vag forums, I'd say they're the pair of wheels that James sold to SJW late last year.

    235/45 R888's on some form of Volks style rims.

    So santapod turned out to be pretty pants this weekend, the track was only open for about an hour on Saturday then the rain took over which was a shame. There was a silver s3 that ran a 13.7 while the track was open. Anyone from here?

    Also liquid s3 I had a little look at your car, I must say it is immaculate and those calipers are huge :) I did ask one of the guys next to it who owned it but he said you were off wondering about.

    Ill try and upload some pictures later
