Mexico racing adventures

Well I was on the vast landscape of good ole mexico freeways 😏😏😉. Anyway as i was cruising along at the speed of bout 70 mph i see a familiar sight in my rearview as a new model Audi Rs5 comes on my bumper i was like hummmmmm let me see if he wants to play.

So i slow down to a sweet downshift spot 65 mph an he seems aggitated with me and floors it from behind me as soon as hes next to me i floor it as well annnnnd we are off! So he doesnt even pull on me its even for a sec an then as we pass ridiculous speed and approach ludicrous speed ..... spaceballs .... i have him by 4 carlengths and pulling 😁😁😁. So i let off an he comes by an gjves me a 👍👍.

Havent raced much lately so it was a fun time made this ole man feel young again .... good times .... just thought id share my mexico experience.

have you had it dynod or any 1/4 mile times? i am just running a pulley tune, Im wondering if id be able to keep up with a rs5 if you pulled 4+ car lengths on him. i have raced a new RS3 from a roll when I was stock and he pulled on me quite easily which was pretty disheartening

Last time i dynoed was 530 something i have to go back cus ive done a few more things since then but im waiting til i finish my new intercooler install an such. Havent got to hit the 1/4 mile cus all the tracks we had around here are gone closest is in vegas so maybe ill head that way sometime this spring to give it a go. Mines a daily driver that i just like to drive fast lol but the rs3 is fast and if it was modded thats a game changer too. I dont think the rs5 was modded but it was fast i raced one from a dig and he killed me
