Good job on the race. Last year at Epping I beat my buddys VR6 GTI. I did a 15.5 and he did a 15.7, so obviously driver error.

Sweet thanks for all the replies, to answer, it was the 6 speed manual. I'm not sure if that's quicker than the DSG or not. The DSG probably eliminates driver error though, so who knows. I think the SVTF vs. the VR6 GTI MKIV is actually a drivers race, they were slower than the 1.8T by a smidgen, so good job Kyle!

I just put a chip in my MKV and it added 40hp. There are different levels of the chip but not one that will put you at 300hp. The 2.0t is a great base platform and responds well to any sort of modification.

I beat one at a track. Dont remember the times but I beat him mainly due to great shifts on my part. Nobody really believes me though... sniff, sniff.

The MK III VR6 was 180hp and heavy, but there was no 1.8t in the MK III. When the 1.8t was first put in the MK IV it was only 150hp and the VR6 was still 180hp. Then for one model year, I believe 02 or 03, the 1.8t was upped to 180hp while the VR6 stayed at 180hp. So for that year model up the 1.8t was faster than that year model down VR6, due to the VR6 model being heavier. After that the VR6 was upped to 200hp.

I'm Not an svt but I've beat more of these things than i can count, street track whatever. If the things were chipped i'm sure it'd be a different story, but stock they are just lacking something... The only modded one i raced kept pretty close he was like a car back till 4th when i let off. The DSG ones are definately faster than the manual ones though.
