Yesterday, in Mexico, a tinted-out Audi S4, looked to be about 2010-2011, stick, exhaust, not sure of other mods - decided he wanted to play.

We played twice from a stop. First time, I was in front of him when we went and he couldn't catch me. I put about 2-3 cars on him and slowly pulled. Second time, he was in front and I caught him and pulled around him slowly.

But it was a lot closer than I expected. I wonder if he had more mods than just the exhaust.

What's the story with these newer S4's?

I thought I would have taken him much easier.

Those S4's are low 13 second cars. With your numbers in your sig, the outcome sounds about right.

Nice kill.

I'd say he's got more than exhaust. 2011s were around 330hp stock, maybe a couple hundred pounds lighter.

I raced one with an intake, cortex tune, 2 other friends in the car, and a trunk full of 3 golf bags. I can't believe I beat him but I did. it was close but by half a car length probably.

I'm surprised your race was so close especially with your quarter mile time. But I bet those S4's respond well to mods.

Nice kill. The newer B8's are 6cyl supercharged and pretty quick. With a tune and some mods it could be a bit faster but it would cost a ton of $$ to get where we can with the LSX's. the older B7 is. 4.2L v8 and hella fun to drive. That's what I traded for my G8. Loved it but I was coming up on the timing maintenance which would've cost 5k$+. Both great cars.

I've raced a few on the street and I've always beat them. It's as it should be when versing a AWD car. Being slightly faster, so they can catch you in the twisties. :)

I personally feel the S4s are overpriced/underpowered for what they are.

Spot on. They are definitely over priced. Damn sweet though inside and out.

S4's start in the high 40's. Not too shabby for a luxury car that bangs out high twelves stock.

Launching in awd does have its advantages. My car would be scary fast down the quarter if I had it too! ��
