02' R/T vs. 02' A4

Me and my friend are saying our car will be each others. So im wondering, will my r/t 3.5L beat his a4 1.8t. Hes got 186hp and 177ft/lb, with awd and also weighs 226KG lighter than my trep.
Seeing as its winter its not a wise idea to race, so were gonna wait tell it drys up, we already planned out an empty road way thats safe. Ill post back the results when it happens.

empty roads are not safe. Take it to the track.

Both of these.

The Audi may not have as much crank HP, but its transmission is super efficient. So I can pretty much guarantee that out of that 180ish HP, he has 150ish MINIMUM going to the wheels. And its AWD? Definitely going to lose. Our cars put out barely 170ish (depending on which 3.5) to the wheels.

So youve got a 20HP advantage, maybe about the same in torque. But youve got to haul around 300-350 more pounds, and hes got AWD. Plus Im pretty sure that those cars had 5 speed automanuals, that are much better designed than our Autostick. And if hes a stick, you definitely have no chance.

I have to actually disagree with all three of yinz, My one buddy has an 03 A6 with a 3.0 and it was a race comparable to me and a 3.8 Impala or Gran Prix. I dont think it would win...unless it was a 5 spd. If its a stick...lights out. But then again...I dont condone street racing, especially with the laws up in Canada.

I understand the whole stupidity 'ness of us doing it on the road but atleast we wont harm anyone else. But still pretty bad.
Hes got a automatic. How about a roll on from 60-whatever?
Also on paper it makes sense for the trep to win, since the trep can do 0-60 in 7.8-8.2 well the a4 1.8t does it in 8.4-8.6. Id say it be a pretty close race

Idk on this one maybe keep your gas low in the tank like maybe 4-6 gallons and take your spare out before you go to the road it might help alittle or he might still take ya idk.

The only place to RACE is the TRACK. PERIOD.

Even staying below the speed limit and racing side by side on a 4 lane road is dangerous because even if you have YOUR car under control, you have NO control over other cars that may merge on you or come out of no were and be in your way... that, and you can't be concentrating on your 'race' and adequately concentrate on safety at the same time - that's why cell phone usage is getting so much heat!

Some laws are made just to keep order - but others are there for your safety and the safety of others.

Find a track, drive fast.
