    Is it just me that can't see past page 7/8?

    Can we continue here?

    (If it is just me, perhaps the mods can delete this?)

    S3mon - any update?

    Strange about the other thread isn't it.

    Is Ryan around?

    I believe from the TT-forum.co.uk that he recently raced a 350z. Wasn't a fair contest by all accounts as Ryan (if its the same Ryan who is on here) is running an S3 with IHI big turbo and around 350bhp. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Personally, I wish my car had its spec'd 225bhp, and not it's problematic 200-218bhp variable rate power!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Hi Al ,yes it was me in that video with the 350z,standard clutch really having problems holding the torque down so the starts are very poor,but once i got moving the 350z was no match,105mph terminals show the car has some poke!!
    BTW 350z are 280bhp so there not that slow but are heavier by 130kg

    Hey Rich ,best i managed was a 14 flat at 105mph.Best 60ft was 2.447s which is pretty dire,should be nearer 2s.
    103 terminal means your pushing over 300bhp.
    here's a link to the 350z video;

    Well if its anything like it was for GTi Festival, then it was simply too hot. Best i managed was a 14.6@103 which is no good really. Need it about 17degrees really then some proper good times would be had.

    Unfortunately not... Was in a rush to leave and didnt get a chance to get the slip. Best 60ft time i've managed before though is 2.023 which was pretty damn good for a fwd A3. Couldnt tell you what it was for GTi fest though.

    2.023 is a cracking time,sounds like something wasn't running quite right if you only got a 14.6?

    What was your technique with the launch?
    5,000rpm and drop the clutch?

    Actually i think it may have been 2.203... got numbers the wrong way round! Still not bad for Fwd i think. And that was 2 years ago when it was just chipped... I doubt i could do that now as the wheels will just spin. I think i'll arrange a meet as the pod for march/april next year. Should have clutch and LSD fitted by then and other bits replaced/installed.

    Yep something like that...not very transmission-friendly, so that´s one reason why i have driven only that one drag race. I hope i get turbo+clutch upgrade for next summer so then could expect better times...

    Do you think that it is possible drive high 12´s with ~350hp S3? Whats the best time that you have seen with S3 or TT?

    I reckon about 13.5 @ 107 for a 350bhp s3. I've seen steve cane do a 12.97 @ 107 with 360bhp 400lb/t tt (100 shot of nos)

    Last thing I read was:
    [ QUOTE ]

    So I`ve pulled the plug on the AmD remap cause it was so lacking.

    Replaced it with a MTM now Im a happy camper.

    On Friday its going down to Janspeed for a RR and will see how it goes.

    Hi
    The turbo is working well with the MTM chip.LOts of pulling power, 2-bar boost.

    At Janspeed it put down 220 at the wheels which I recon is about 300bhp

    So I`m happy.

    We need some one to arrange a rolling road meet before Christmas.

    So do you have normal MTM 265 chip or is that some custom-made?

    I have that MTM 265 chip with original k04 and it was RR:ed 202hp at the wheels.

    Have you noticed much difference in drive between k04 and hybrid? Is hybrid laggier and is it better in high rpm´s?

    Hi

    I`m using the standard 265 remap ,no lag at all lightweight pullies ali flywheel and lightend clutch cover help.

    The problem I allways had with the MTM chip it spiked very quickly then died Over the years I have been trying to smothing out the peek.The hybrid seems to hold boost for longer so its better at high revs

    My car made crack on 60bhp tranmission loss,so i reckon your putting out around 280bhp and it also seems to tally in with the mtm 265 chip (202+60)=262.
