First post! I can see both sides of this. I used to have an 86 GTi with a VR swap and a vortech V1 supercharger and Tec3 stand alone. You could take off from a stop and end up in 5th gear barely moving bouncing off the rev limiter rolling smoke.. Very hard car to launch with. On the other hand, from a roll, that thing was a beast. It embarrassed a lot of cars who thought they were trolling a lil VW. My second SC'd VR wasn't nearly as ballsy as that one and was an easier launch car but still had to really be gentle on a launch. I think my first 1/4 run with it was like 17something because I was roasting tires through 3rd. Fun times. I am still getting used to my mk6 but if I didn't just like the feel of driving stick I'd bet the DSG was more efficient. Seems to need to shift so fast in the lower gears.

The way I see it is, roll races show you if your car is faster then another car with little to no driver error. Its more of a way to compare and see how your car holds up. Races from a dig have a lot to do with the driver and his skill.

Unfortunately some people can't shift either

Unfortunately I'm part of the no shift category now. This clutch feel is NOTHING like the older clutches I've had.. Super light to me. I've had the car two weeks so I still have some time to get used to it I guess.
