    Renntech tuned pre FL A45 AMG VS REVO TUNED RS3

    Dude, that Vbox is in 1 ft rollout mode... Ben will tell you, you are dreaming if you think that car runs 3.6 to 100 with no rollout haha... thats nearly 0.4 seconds quicker than Bens car...and as I know he has the quickest time for a stage 1 A45. Your wasting your time here... I've had both...

    Renntech tuned pre FL A45 AMG VS REVO TUNED RS3

    dude, here is Bens run... broken up ... hes notably slower than 3.4 seconds with rollout... more like just shy of 3.7. With no rollout hes running 4.0

    Renntech tuned pre FL A45 AMG VS REVO TUNED RS3

    Um, lets see... Ben's car always runs 3.7-3.8 to 100km/h with 1ft rollout... which might yield 3.4-3.5 0-60mph .... I did 3.4 to 100km/h, on a slight incline. I am pretty sure thats 3.2 to 60mph mate.... and I have a tuning box.

    Renntech tuned pre FL A45 AMG VS REVO TUNED RS3

    Also, in addition to this... I wasnt going to pull this out, as I think its petty... but heres a 1ft rollout 0-100km/h time I just replicated about an hour ago... Ben always asks why we cant do 0-160km/h runs here... tis the nanny state! Anyhow... I'm pretty sure this is quicker than anything...

    Renntech tuned pre FL A45 AMG VS REVO TUNED RS3

    Them and every other publication? Dude, with respect, I had an A45... and it was tuned... I am not so worried about encounting one...and I dont have an obsessive predilection with any of my other cars. The data you got from Ben is from one run... I speak to Ben too and we've shared alot of...

    Renntech tuned pre FL A45 AMG VS REVO TUNED RS3

    Mate, thats great its all here say...every real publication shows stock RS3s running to 200 in 14.8 seconds, while the A45 more like 16 seconds. The gap gets ugly above 200... Autobild ran the RS3 10 seconds quicker from 200-250km/h than the A45 alone...

    Renntech tuned pre FL A45 AMG VS REVO TUNED RS3

    The RS3 has been out 6 months max....Autobild alone got 8.05 seconds for the oettinger tune... considering the old TTRS was running in the mid 7s on stage 1-2... Also, another guy with a Revo RS3, posted 8.2 on his Vbox... and Revo is a midrange focused tuned. So I fail to see how it wont be...

    Renntech tuned pre FL A45 AMG VS REVO TUNED RS3

    Ben's A45 :) Revos tune is very mid range heavy, compared to some of the others... Oettinger included - who are running nearly a second quicker to 200. As an ex A45 owner, who had a Willall tune - very mid range heavy... there are tunes...and tunes... and the Renntech one definitely has the...

    1st tuned RS3 Comparo

    Hi All, I downloaded the Autobild sportscar ( German) issue for this month, and there was a 3 way comparo between a stage 1 MTM, Oettinger and Rothe RS3.... here is the spec page. Considering, their reviews of stage 1/2 Golf Rs and A45s were well over half a second slower than the times...

    Facelift RS3?

    Hmm, This is a pretty sad and spiteful thread... On that note... An M2 is for children and philistines... I'd buy one and donate it to the Joe Bailey institute for underprivileged hair dressers.

    8V RS3 367PS Tuning from DTUK and DTE

    Gents, The flywheel figures are meaningless, because they are derived from an assumed correction factor... The wheel power figures tell a hugely different story... stock is 293bhp at the wheels... which with a 25% correction factor, converts to 390bhp.... Tuned, the car makes 349bhp at the...

    8V RS3 367PS Tuning from DTUK and DTE

    I personally think those maps would work better with 100-102 RON fuel... as the box is upping the boost quite aggressively.

    To all with the 8v rs3

    Mine only uses abit of clutch, if you floor it from a standing start in 1st ( and youre not using LC), you can watch it raise the revs to like 2500-3k and then let out the clutch, to get on boost... never noticed it elsewhere.

    8V RS3 367PS Tuning from DTUK and DTE

    Hey mate, good to hear, I found the gains got greater over time as the car adjusted... I found running it in map 1,1 and then map 1,2 got the car to adjust faster... as those two maps increase the boost more... after a couple hundred km I returned the car to 1,0 and I find it runs amazingly...

    8V RS3 367PS Tuning from DTUK and DTE

    Guys, Interestingly, I had an A45 before the RS3, and it felt completely flat stock... to the point of questioning its power... When I drove the RS3 stock, it felt pretty impressive in my opinion...yeh I hear you re the "linear" feel in the mid range compared to the old one... however it has...
