So which car is faster and better overall? What better way to test it then flog both cars round a race track and see??
This is an over lay video of me driving both my MKV R32 and my S3, lapping the same race track (Wakefield Park) in similar track conditions. Both car videos have been edited to have the same "starting" point at the start of the armco barrier. (Note the white painted barrier on the left)
Condition: Fine, Sunny approximately 23 degrees celcius
VW R32: Semi Slicks, ECU Tune, H&R Race Springs, Adjustable Shocks, Front and Rear Sway Bars, Cold Air Intake, 2 Piece Slotted Brake Rotors, Pagid Race Brake Pads, Braided Steel Lines,
Audi S3: Completely Stock standard.
The R32 should be quicker right due to the modifications and semi slicks right?? Wrong. The S3 is actually faster around a race track and significantly easier to drive. It doesn't suffer under steer issues to the extent that the R32 suffers, it feels significantly lighter and much more nimbler and agile.
While the modifications to the R32 made a significant difference to help manage the under steer and handling ... it doesnt over come the weighty V6 at the front of the car and top end of the V6 which could be a lot better!
My Stock S3 is 1.5 seconds per lap faster than my Modified R32.
My now modified S3 is 6 seconds a lap faster than my modified R32

Golf V R32 w/ Milltek Exhaust System - Fast drive by!!
Today I've recorded something totally different: a lovely blue Golf V R32
with an aftermarket Milltek non-resonated cat back Exhaust! As you can see in the first part, the
R32 is fitted with 19' VMR V710 rims (for more information:
www.velocitymotoring.com). As you can see, it has also the carbon rear
diffuser. At the end of the video you can hear two stock R32's.
