MKVI Gti vs 2005 Hyundia Tiberon GT

I didnt race him but i have a 6 speed manual and he has a 4 speed auto and wants to race me. i dont know whether to be scared or not because ill admit im not the fastest shifter especially from 2nd to 3rd i always miss the damn thing when going fast. what do you guys think?

Just remember when shifting soft an accurate is better than hard and misshifting besides that I say your golden.

Your competition (GT Tib):

Engine : V6, DOHC, front engine FWD
Displacement : 2,656 cc
Valve : 24 valves, 4 valves per cylinder
Transmission : 6-spd manual, 5-spd manual, 4-spd automanual
Horsepower : 170-172 hp @ 6000 rpm
Torque : 177-181 lb-ft @ 3800 rpm

0-60 mph : 7.4 sec.(manual)
Curb Weight : 2969-3010 lbs


You:

Layout Front Engine, FWD
Transmission 6 Speed Conventional or DSG Manual
Type: VW TSI Inline 4
Displacement 2.0 liters
Horsepower 210 bhp @ 5300 rpm
Torque 207 lb-ft @ 1700 rpm

Acceleration 0-60 mph s: 6.9 seconds
Curb Weight 2900 lbs.

The real question is ... why are you worried? You're both front wheel drive. You are lighter. You have more horses. You have more torque at 1700 rpm than he has at 3800rpm. Your car quotes a faster quarter mile and 0-60. You get better gas mileage. You can fit 4-5 people in your car comfortably.

In every conceivable way, GTI > Tib GT. The only reason you could possibly lose by way of complete lack of skill with a manual transmission.

To compleatly turn off traction control hold the ESP button for 5 seconds it should flash but to be honist just leave it on don't launch let him get a car on you then crush him way more fun that was if you where to launch 3500 is pretty controlable depending on your tires buy that will just start an argument cause everyone launches at slightly differnt rpm
thats my 0.2

You'll do fine, and just as mentioned above, smooth shifts. I really don't see how anyone can miss 3rd gear from second. Be careful you don't stall it trying to launch :P
