Literally just got home from racing dumbass in A8 speeding like a madman on 695 Beltway while I was driving home from dropping my friend off..
I wanted to see If he can shake me of..Unfortunately NO!!
I think there is slight weight difference with Torque and Hp..
He had very hard time shaking me off!! Eventually I just followed him around till I got home!! A usual 30 minute trip turned into 15 minute due to 120MPH..
:D :D :D

Nice!! You shoulda been able to pull away from him if you were able to open it up any :)

The new ones are around 4800 pounds with 450 horses and roughly same amt of torque :cool: was it a newer one or older? Either way, nice run

I'm 110% sure it was one generation down! Yea, Mike I know fact that I would of taken him out but the mere fact of look on his face would of been great but it is dark outside especially Highway no less with decent amount of traffic at 11:15pm or so..He had very hard time shaking me off..Basically we both had decent amount of space after some point and he actually tried to go head to head but NOPE!! NO CHANCE!! That's why I slowed down for him! And then ONLY thing he could do is cut thru other cars which I give him credit for..THAT'S ONLY THING!! Other than that it was kinda waste of him!:cool:

Isf and A8 will never be a race, my parents had an 06 A8 great car but slow as sh*t. Even an S8 cant hang with an ISF when driven properly!
