Anybody in the Des Moines area should PM me!
I actually didn't think anything of it when I was next to him at the light and my friend was behind me in his forrester. The dude romped on it. We both got onto the same highway going towards philly and I stayed planted on his bumper then passed him.
I'm not a fat wrx. I'm a sub 2800 lbs Rs with a swap. I can pull on my buddies legacy gt with wrx swap and vf 34 (close to 300whp). Pretty damn dead even with this other kids stage 2 sti with external waste gate and protuned. These S's may have the flash numbers....but they are also close to 5,000 lbs. From what I've come across they are even slightly slower then a stock sti in the quarter.
Well yes, it was released here (depends on what year we're talking about), but no you probably did not race an S6. Maybe it was an A6 that you thought was an S6. Was it an "Avant" aka wagon? Either way, man trust me, my buddy has a 2000 Audi S4 and that's the same engine that went in those year A6's, and it wasn't slow at all. 2.7 twin turbo and my buddy has an ECU tune on stock setup pumping him to near 400lbs torque. He murders me.
Yea, they're heavy, but they're not 5000lbs man what do you think it is, a truck? Lol try barely 4000lbs. Just Youtube some S4s or S6s vs any Subaru you want bro, Subaru will lose. I hate my friend's S4 and hate Audi in general (much more of a BMW guy myself), but it is quick.
Check these out:

You also might wanna watch your own video. 14.0@102?? You kidding me? You seriously think I can't take one? I know those things are capable of a better time then that and trap a few more mph but I am faster then that. Like I said they are slightly slower then a stock sti. Stock sti's are not a problem for me.
I don't care what your buddy has in his B5 you are compairing two totally different cars different engines, different weights. Like I said the A6 is 1000 lbs heavier. You should see me pull on my buddies wrx wagon with a few more mods then me. Only thing I have is about 500 lbs weight advantage. That is a HUGE advantage.

Hello fella nice looking classic you have there.
I know for a fact that having a RA which is stripped is only weighing in at just shy over a ton and also running 300 to 310 BHP.
The car has a group N short box and the gear change up to 100 mph is so quick there is not much that the RA can't have in a straight line or track.
Recently had a Jap meet with Skiylines Soarers etc even gave the GTR's a good run for there money.

Um, yea... so I guess you did race an A6? Wagon? Or we still haven't figured that one out yet?
I was only giving you an example of what Audi can do by telling you about my friend's car. And as much as you and I might hate the fact, my friend's S4 will most likely always smoke us...and STi's... we just can't win.... especially if he ever gets the K04 turbos or whatever... twin turbo v6 man we have no chance. Lol
You know what I'm sorry to the thread starter. If the two guys who think it's not possible would like to debate farther just pm me.
How do you know what I drive? What my mods are? For all you know, I may have an F1 car in my driveway.I'm not trying to sound like a jerk here but my car is far lighter then yours and has more mods and most likely a better tune. Just because your car basically stock can't do it doesn't mean other ones that are faster can't
OK but seriously, I know that there are faster cars than mine, obviously. I'm not saying that with enough mods on any given vehicle you could beat any other given vehicle either. But what I am saying is that riding in my friend's S4 with his little 400lbs torque tune thing, upgraded clutch and flywheel, we owned STi's. Maybe they were just stock STi's, I don't know. How badly can you beat a stock STi?
My brother has a cooper its not an S but its still pretty fast but not as fast as a subie.
I love the red on your car it looks great nice job
