I had the opportunity to run a GTI 1.8T at lunch today. it was a friend of a friends car so here's how it went. I had one passsenger and he had none.
We were fighting traffic for a while and only got to go from a roll a few times but I was only able to pull slightly on it. We finnaly got to a light and went up till about 75mph or so and I had about 2 car lengths on him. He said he didn't have mods. i didn't think they were that fast. Does anyone think he had modifications. I could really hear his turbo spool up with a whoosh sound when we were neck and neck in first, but when I hit second I started to pull. They are listed as running low 15's in the 1/4 but he was easily pulling high 14's in my opinion. He was a good driver too. Anyway, a very good race.
