    If you want something special, the Lloyd Luxe mats are great. For the wintertime I used weathertech, pictured here. http://www.motor-talk.de/bilder/s3-fussmatten-g68829014/image-i207803456.html

    0-60 In 3.77 Audi S3 With Dtuk Fsr System

    Same with me. Whatever I do, I'm not even getting close to it. Not that the box fails to provide decent gains, but not that much.

    Audi S3 - 0-60mph =3.77, 0-100mph = 8.92

    11s will come I'm sure. The trap speed is also a bit low compared to what you had last time. How was the weather? Dou you have the timeslip? What was your speed at the 1/8 mile mark?

    Audi S3 - 0-60mph =3.77, 0-100mph = 8.92

    Excellent run! What were the weather conditions? My car seems to respond to cold weather very well.

    Mine only cuts out on bad roads telling me that ACC was shut down because of ESP/ASR working. It seems to be a bit over-sensitive on that matter.

    Good video. One notice, I think it was measured with 1 ft rollout, as on a dragstrip vs. what Audi claims without rollout.

    Ok, it's a Merc. But that's what I'm talking about: Old Lady vs Pro Racing driver Bernd Schneider in Mercedes A45 AMGs

    First of all, this is Mk6. And of course he was using LC. ESP off, DSG in S, left foot on brakes, right foot on the throttle and as you see in the video, from 3200 rpm it just takes off. But: you don't have to take my word. Use a Racelogic or similar device like I did, and test it.

    Which is the situation, when: 1., you don't have the time to switch to LC mode 2., your LC is defeated after 200 launches The first one does not bother me, street racing is not my thing. The second does. If it's true, but I've seen no confirmation.

    Ok, no problem, you don't unserstand my point. Just a small correction: it's not even the same gearing between Stronic and manual.

    Maybe you're missing the point, that I'm saying WITH LC, everytime Stronic wins, WITHOUT it, so launching the Stronic from about 1500 rpm and the manual from let's say 4500, everytime the manual wins. The thing is, the guy in the manual car can do it as long as his clucth holds up fine, and then...

    Not exactly, because I would never launch a manual car at 1500 rpm, it would be rather 4500-5500 depending on clutch and surface. A manual car runs the 1/4 mile in 13.2-13.3secs, with a bit less terminal speed. It's all about the launch, and that's something you just can't do withot LC.

    If you use the launch control, yes, otherwise, no chance (decent driver driving). Of course, it's different from let's say 30 to 100, then every time Stronic wins, no question. With LC I was running 12.8-12.9 at the drag strip, without it, 13.6-13.7.

    Latter. But it does not make a big difference, the engine should produce decent torque at 1500 rpm, but it just doesn't. I'm not complaining, and not regretting to choose the DSG, I only wish the limit of 200 launches would not exist. I'm at 3000 miles and already down to about 180.

    Yes, there is, good for drag racing, you can let go at the last yellow, and will not get a red light.
