    really..all the posts i've read about boost were 16 max..hmmm well that brings a new light on the boost conversations threads

    16PSI is about as much as you should go on the STOCK TD04 turbo. It will start to run out of breath shortly after. On a larger turbo like a VF30 or VF22, you can go to about 19PSI (if you have adequate fuel to support that kind of boost). I only run 17PSI in emergencies (got a scrambble switch), but on the street I keep the EBC set at 1.0BAR (14.7 PSI).

    I understand your point re: the faster 0-60 does not necessarily mean a faster 1/4 mile, but in this instance I think it does. Are you implying that the TT will beat the WRX in the 1/4 mile? Sorry, you basically said it but I guess didn't want to OUTRIGHT say it...

    I only had 0-60 times on hand, I just used them for reference. In this instance, the AWD, while not helping the WRX at high speeds, will give it a sizeable lead from the hole (since RWD is harder to launch and AWD gives the WRX an immediate advantage). Its not like you're racing a 'Vette where it can make that ground up. 210 hp vs. 227hp...

    Hey, I could be wrong but you seemed like you were holding back...are you saying the TT can outrun the WRX?

    I think your S4 can but I think that might even be a fairly close race, stock vs. stock. Not sure who would win really though...
    WOAH buddy, slow down there. I simply pointed out that a faster 0-60 does not always constitute a faster 1/4 mile time. I did no mud slinging and I did not hold back. You are trying to make me into an a-hole who thinks that all Audi's are gods and can beat anything. I DID NOT SAY THAT, YOU IMPLIED IT!!! I am not a moron, I know a WRX is faster than a TT. Now why don't you OUTRIGHT say that you are trying to flame me when there is no reason too? I am not an enemy of this board and have never bashed on a WRX. I LIKE THE CAR. You can read into that however you want. You think I am holding back on something? Fine, hope you don't lose to much sleep over it.

    Oh, and further more, just to prove you are trying to start something with me, where in my post did I EVER mention a TT?

    This is not necessarily true. A car with a better 0-60 is not gonna always have a better 1/4 mile. Especially when the car with the better 0-60 is AWD. There are many rear wheel drive cars that have so-so 0-60 times with excellent 1/4 mile times. The grip makes the difference. And like it or not, once the AWD car is moving, it has to work harder to keep that speed up and accelerate more.

    i'm really not a big fan of BMW's they all look the same. The headlights and taillights are roughly the same but the car is longer or shorter or 2door or 4...with exceptions of course

    400 extra pounds probably slows it down but could be a good race.
    the extr $10,000 is why this car is rediculous

    yeah but aren't they like stupid heavy?? I think that is the biggest handicap that the german cars like BMW and Merc suffer from

    I'm not sure but overall power to weight I think the rex would take it stock for stock plus it doesn't cost much to make a rexy go a fair bit quicker.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Please get off the price thing. If you poor 10 thousand dollars into a rex and it is faster than a Ferrari, it doesn't make it a better car than a Ferrari. 9.99 out of 10 times, people would still choose the Ferrari if money were not an option. The WRX is a great car, I think everyone here knows that, but just cause it cost less then some others does not automatically make it a better car. And DarkMoonLord, I am not targeting you, I have read it a hundred times and I think that people are putting way to much stock in the cost of a car.
