    05 S4 V8 (modded) VS MB SLK-350

    Both cars are manual.

    Let me just start with saying that the new MB SLK350 is no slouch.

    The race was from 70-110 short race. we were both dead even.

    There was 2 extra people in the S4 otherwise i would have pulled him

    BTW the S4 mods are:

    Full exhaust
    Cold Air
    Short shifter.

    They might be fast, but they might "look" way faster then they actually are....the front end of that car is awesome....


    EDIT: Grammar.....BTW, the RS2 is my ALL-TIME favorite car....it is the sickest looking wagon out there....
    .
    My car sounds like a LIGER.......ERZ + SPT = LOUD......pretty much one of my favorite sounds.....

    Nice run. Those new SLK's are definately amazing compared to the previous generation! They are actually sports cars now. Just watch out for the SLK55, which to say the least is unreal!

    Well you should put new turbos in the RS6 with 600+hp then race!

    if it were only that easy

    the RS6 already is up to 550 hp and 600lb of torque thats enough untill the new M5 or RS6 comes out. I am hoping that audi will put a V10 turbo in the next RS6 otherwise i would have to go for the new M5. But then again you never have enough HP i am shure on of you guys with a really modded sti can beat my RS6.

    What do you think of the power and power potential of the 4.2liter v8 versus the 2.7TT of the old s4's?

    jigga is correct that at 70-110 mph passenger weight isn't going to make a huge difference as aerodymanics are coming into play more then anything else.

    Dang, you have one? Thats the car i wanted. There may be afew STI's out there that will compete with youre car but NOT many. Nice car
    So you dont think youre awd audi with 550hp will hang with a new M5?

    Well i had the old s4 (2.7tt) but its alot harder to compare because my old s4 was Auto which was alot slower then the manual s4. So obviously its day and night between my old Auto and the new Manual, but i can say that the V8 has much better throttle response then the 2.7tt. But a big minus is you cant do much to the V8 S4 and the old S4 you were able to do alot becuase of the turbo.


    were not talking about high speeds here like 130-150. at speed like 70-110 two big passangers make 450 pounds extra. make a difference. i would say maybe half a second.

    BTW they are putting the same 3.5 engine in the E class and C class (E350 and C350) next year but both are heavier and are auto so they would be alot slower.

    As I was typing, I realized I don't know at exactly what speeds weight becomes less important then aerodynamics. Clearly the weight was less of a factor from 100-110 as it was 70-80, so it's easy to say relatively, but I wonder if some engineer could calculate the actual effect.

    You could do a test of 70-110 with and without the passengers to know specifically what effect it has on your car, but it would be cool if someone could come up with a formula that takes in consideration cd, frontal area, and weight to determine effect on acceleration at certain speeds.

    I auto crossed a SLK 350 MT a couple of months ago. (MB track day). Power deliverry was great but didnt feal as fast as my STi. handling was what i thought it would be, nimble with hevy understeer at the limit. Its deffinately a step in the right direction for MB. If I was a foot shorter and a hunderd puonds lighter i would like to have one.

    On second thought, I would still take the M roadster over the Benz.
