A true family battle at the PBIR drag strip. Wifey drives a tuned X3 M and hubby brought his modded 500+ hp RS3.

What tune on the RS3? I assume E85 with those numbers and no supportIng mods? I just came from one; love the 5 cylinder. Sounds so much better than the I6.

Must be some sort of high% ethanol mixture for RS3.

Just imagine the ensuing pillow-talk arguments about the wife jumping the start on two of the three races. Impressive results for both cars.

The drag times are when you cross the start and finish regardless of when you start.

Good fun that.

Looked like wife didn't use launch control on second race. Thought her reactions were quicker too.

Either way, it was close. What an interest to have in common.

Great races. Always always go
On the last yellow on a non pro tree.

I love the RS3. But my gosh that x3m moves for what it weighs. I can't think of many SUV's on the street let alone many cars that will touch this thing. It's going to make many mustangs and camaros very very sad.

It didn't seem like it ran e85 they have been known to break high 10's on a stage 1 tune alone depending on elevation but who knows. They run 11.7 stock at sea level.
Stage 2 and e85 they run solid 10.3-10.4's. Fast cars for sure and sound incredible.
