What tyres were on the red rs3, the grey one had trofeos on3.1 nice, goes to show what a tune can do in that 2.5 - obviously there's more potential compared to ours. Of course we don't know how close to GPS that 3.1 is. We know our TrackPace app is only a tenth off but might be different in the Audi. Anyway, as we know the Russians have done 3.1 in the A45s too and that's GPS time, but I would think that both cars maxed out (stock turbo and motor), the RS3 should have an advantage.
Stock times in carwow video:
0-60mph 3.63 which as we've already established is about 3.8 to 62mph, or 100kph. And that's pretty much the claimed time, no surprises there. Neck and neck with the A45s (claimed 3.9 but I've seen 3.8, mine included). 1/4 mile 11.98 which is also neck and neck with the A45s, considering Mat has done 11.96 in the A45s.
I'm going to bet it's gonna be a very tough fight when they drag race these two. I expect no more than a car length. Better tires, driver reaction time, is all it takes.
I've already posted what I think about the rest of the car, interior, exterior, infotainment etc. Might have been my second choice behind the A45s, but only the sedan. Hatch looks like a modified S3.
No clue, but either way, we can safely assume the two hyper hatches are perfectly matched, running identical times. Shaving off a tenth on stickier tires, or jumping the start ever so slightly, I'm really not gonna bother. Drag race these cars 100 times it's gonna be 50 each, provided you got two drivers equally skilled (one will say what you need skill for in an automatic AWD - well reaction time takes skill).What tyres were on the red rs3, the grey one had trofeos on
I didn't as I assumed the sedan was tuned, so running low 3s would make sense. If it's stock then probably either the speedo, or the built in timer is way off. Could be both. Audi gotta keep the owners happy right? At the same time, might also be downhill even if it don't look like it; a good photographer can trick you into thinking it's even uphill! Either way trust me, the average owner will totally believe their 400hp/1620kg car runs low 3s, same as the 2017 Nissan GTR !! (3.1 on fastestlaps). People will believe anything.I’m calling BS on that one
