I just saw the sexyest...
« on: July 17, 2007, 05:31:30 PM »
2.7T Allroad. It was a dark plum color and had just been detailed at the shop next door to my warehouse, it had some sort of after market 18's that were polished with color matched lips. It looked hooottt. And made me think of all of you, especially Jon, who gave me the most exhilarating ride of my life in a 3700 pound car.

The look on those two middle school aged kids, as we came ripping down that road is burned into my memory forever.  ;D ;D

and if you thought Jon's car was fast...

Do you have bigger snails on your 2.7T?

yep! K04's + AWE fueling kit + piggy pipes + RS6 SE Exhaust + GIAC
full stage 3 allroad.  should be about 100hp above the way jons was outfitted when you got that ride.  plus it has a manual tranny, so should be a bit faster than the tip.

Monster allroad!

it is a 6 speed.

and you got it, if we are at the same place you can have a ride.  this thing is almost as fast as cole's S4.

greg, the allroad weighs in at 4400 lbs....so, add 700 lbs onto your estimate.  And Andrew's allroad would leave mine in the dust, not even close, not even on a good day.

I said "a bit" meaning not much,

but in the allroad there was a real difference.  Audi's published specs for 0-60 were 7.3 for the tip and 6.8 for the manual.  1/4 mile was supposed to be 15.6 tip vs 15.1 manual.

you still get props man, your car is still one damn fast tip (and still faster than my car)

Stock vs. Stock a manual can be launched and a TIP cannot. That can easily make up for the 0.5 second you quote there.  Change TC and/or Tip chip and now the Tip can be launched too. Some of the recent tip 1/4 mile times so a 60 foot time faster than the 6 speeds. So I honestly think the 0.5 second goes away on a modified car or if the race does nto include a launch.

1/2 a second isn't that much when you really think about it.  I too have seen some of those 60 ft times and am amazed.

I'm still not a fan of the tip, but justification for the manual being faster is probably a figment of imagination at this point.

I do think in many cases the manual "feels" faster due to the added jerkiness of gear shifts.

I noticed in your list you have stock hitch. Do you know what its rated to carry?

Also I seem to remember some sort of air auto leveling feature? Can you use that to firm up the rear with a heavy load?
Just wondering if that thing would carry my KTM in the receiver rack.. its about 330 loaded up

stock hitch for the allroad is a class II hitch 3,300 lb towing capacity and 330lb tongue weight.  the same hitch in europe though is rated at 5,000 lbs and 500lb tongue weight.  weird.

the difficulty in carrying the KTM on a receiver rack is that the allroads hitch receiver points straight down toward the ground, and you'd need to make some sort of converter.

see this doc for pics of what I am talking about:

I see what you mean, thats a crazy style of hitch I haven't seen one like that before.

I need at least a Class 3 to carry the KTM, with the hitch carrier you can only tote half your tongue weight due to how far back the load sits.

Ehh, wishful thinking..

It would easily haul it on my 5x8 utility trailer though.



this trencher weighed in at 2,800 lbs and was an easy tow.

No dbout, Ill bet it pulls the wheels off that thing.

The main reason I have an need for the hitch carrier is my apartment complex wont let me store a trailer on site.. and the hitch carrier fits in my living room nicely. haha

I'd love to see your 60' times with that ;D I have the auto-leveling feature thing on my A4...I used it, but not sure what it did. I should look that up ::)
