Audi RS3 vs VW Golf R... vs Golf R with £1,200 tune - DRAG RACE, ROLLING RACE AND BRAKE TEST

  • Datum objavljivanja: 8. Lis 2019.
  • How much extra performance can you get for £1,200? With the Mountune Volkswagen Golf R that's enough for an ECU remap and an induction kit which increase power by 60hp to 360hp. So is this enough to beat a standard Audi RS3, which has 400hp? To find out we decided to drag race them. And we shoved in a standard Golf R too so you can see the difference between tuned and stock. BTW the Mountune Golf R also had upgraded brakes so you can see the effect of those in the brake test too.

    I saw Mat run the RS3 with the RS4. 12.1 RS4. 12.2 RS3. The RS4 has been raced a zillion times and basically always does in in 12.1.

    I really don’t understand what happens during your drag races.. about a year ago you managed to pull a 12.2 sec quarter mile from the rs3.. how is now 12.7? Is this to make the drag race interesting? Because the rs3 should absolutely spank those cars..

    I am confused at 3:17 is he implying RS3 and Golf R have the same gearbox? because last time I checked, the RS3 got a DQ500 and the Golf R a DQ381?

    It only costs xxxxx
    12 grand cheaper than the rs
    Mount tune this and that
    Save 4 grand if you get it with us!
    Its so much better.
    This is not a sales pitch

    Knew it was before you did the race. It was obvious which was going to win when you were trying to sell it from the start.

    So the stock golf r was slightly ahead after first few hundred meters which proves how fake this test was. I have an s3, friend has a golf r, I have an rs3. The rs3 spanks both massively .

    why are you comparing a rs3 between a golf r? it should be a s3 between a golf r, both have 300 hp

    Wow that was a bloody slow run for the rs3. It should have ran low 12s. Should have ran then again.
    Edit:. Apparently Audi killed the 19 model cause of emissions standards smh

    The base Golf R has been 310hp for 2 years. Read your sheets.
    Also, why don’t you start the rolling race with cruise control on? If not it’s too random, one might be 2mph slower or decelerating from 51mph to 49mph at the start.

    £1k spent on brake upgrades. 1 car length between the upgrade & standard. Not worth it IMO.

    So the rs3 is now 0.5 second slower than it used to be and the standard golf r is 0.6 seconds quicker compared to a drag race carwow did a few years ago. Come on audi!!! Stop this madness
