Dollar vs Dollar the Stage I tune is the best bang for the buck. Sure a Stage II will or should "beat" a stage I car in theory but that isn't always the case is it?

On track, SCCA Solo II I was running a 360whp Evo 9 MR and would get spanked by stock Miata's so much of it comes to drivers skill vs Power alone. So many variables here. A guy running Stage I with good tires and a good suspension set up may beat a stage II car with AS tires and a stock suspension set up. I have seen it all at the track haha.

Just my thoughts...

Jeff


You're absolutely right, good sticky tires are a MUST with these cars

I beat my Boss's 5.0 on Sunday, he disrespected my golf so I just had to show him the view of my LED tails real quick

No not K04 :/ I'm just stage 2 with bolt ons. Just fmic, the intake and catless dp. I'm running Eurodyne's stage 2 OTS 93 Oct file. I have some pretty decent sticky tires that don't really spin much, they put the power down really well. I believe that the most important mod is Tires, I'm planning on doing an LSD before going K04

Kind of hard to believe that a stage 2 gti beat a newer 5.0 mustang. I'm guessing it was a dig race and the 5.0 just sat there and spun tire cause that 5.0 from a roll would probably put a bus length on ya without much of a hiccup

It was a very low roll, he didn't spin either but from a dig I've beat them too. They'll take off on me and then once I hook I reel them in and pass them up. I'm guessing it's just the drivers that ive came across don't drive too well. I took off on the mustang Gen before the latest one on the freeway as well it was a hertz 5.0 but obviously in the higher top end they reel you in, he passed me up and pulled by a couple of cars not bus lengths tho. These little golfs will surprise you.

I raced another gti today, rolling 40 he let me take off. I had already noticed his fmic and exhaust. I knew he would spank me and while he never passed me he had to get in my lane due to traffic. He could have easily ran his car up my ass. I looked in my rearview and couldnt even see the front of his car. After race he flew past me i gave him a thumbs up.

I never bothered to run a 5.0 at low speeds, still figured I'd get passed easily. I've got some damn nice tires as well as various other suspension mods and mounts and I still easily spin 1st gear and some of 2nd if I'm not careful. I'm also stage 2, fully bolted.

Try it out sometime, you'll be surprised how much you can hang with the v8s. Just yea modulate the throttle and don't get too happy slamming it lol
