    Any idea on how much wheel horsepower the GTI is putting down? That thing is running hard!

    I think those APR 3 Golfs but down somewhere around 270WHP... With 300WHP being possible with race gas and a more aggresive ECU program....

    Think Stage 4 WRX, but with 2WD (therefore, less drivetrain loss) and Less weight, AND gearing that is optimized for high-speed (as opposed to the low-speed bias of our WRX gearboxes)
    02 WRX WRBP sedan..
    Upgrades??? stock...

    They are FWD aren't they? How can they keep 300hp on the ground in a car that light?

    What do you mean "in a car that light"? As far as I know, lighter is ALWAYS better. Even though a lighter car has less weight and less pressure on the tires for traction, it also has less mass to accelerate and turn making it easier to do so.

    all i know is that EVO got raped.

    my friend has a 03GTI with a chip, intake, full turboback, and some other mods and I cant pull at all from him from a roll. and at high speeds like 70+ he actually starts to pull away some. GTI's are no joke in my book.

    I'm surprised, but then again the EVO was made for the twisties...not highway racing. Thanks for the vid

    was it 1.8 T or VR6?

    You know, EVO and STI are the quarter mile warrior. If C6 ran with STI, they would be close until C6 takes off doing 170 MPH.

    So, I think on highway from a roll, EVO's not that great (150 MPH limit) as stock.

    But I'd like to see the race from the start, instead from the roll. It might be a different race.

    nice vid.


    (I do have a vid of Turbo VR6 GTI doing a 9 sec quarter mile. 800whp!)

    But in a car that is putting 300hp down and is FWD is tough, Anything over 300hp you better be running slicks or on a really sticky track. I kinda consider 300hp to be the limit for FWD cars, but I could be wrong.


    ***EDIT***

    I couldn't see the video earlier and I assumed they were from a stop, but now I could view it and they were at a roll. Nice vid though.

    You'd gotta be kidding. C6 will absolutely humiliate STi. Compare their trap speed......

    apr 's kit is stage 3 turbo, and that VR6 you have a video of i bet is supercharged not turbo.

    I agree, putting down that kind of power in a FWD car would be tough.....





























    but lighter is still better.
