Trout and Chips

on Wed Apr 18, 2018 6:23 pm
I am so sure my old banger must have been chipped - tonight a newish S3 pulled up next to me at the lights - 2 lanes in to one (reasonable distance ahead and up hill) don’t normally race - but smug women in her DSG S3, pulled up sharpish alongside me, and slightly ahead - I knew her plan - she absolutely nailed it (judging from the noise) and up to 3rd gear, she only edged ahead, and I had to lift slightly to let her in !!! 100bhp and £15k really didn’t get her very far although the S3 did look and sound a lot beefier than mine, especially as I had the windows down because my air con is broken ....

I need a new car - just needs to be very slightly faster Laughing

By the sounds of it it has been remapped. Mind you, you meed a lot more power to pull out a really big gap in a drag race and the driver can have a big effect.

It’s definately been remapped - but like you say, the S3 will be heavier (Quattro, auto box, heated leather seats, etc) and my air con is off (Broken) ... so even if mine is only pumping 180bhp, it’s got a weight advantage
