    • 10.1@142 on street tires w/ full weight - APR tuned 8V RS3 sedan with SRM/Eurocode GTX hybrid turbocharger

      We are going to keep hurling superlatives at this platform because it just keeps earning them. How about a low 10-second car that you can daily drive? That is what this is as we have a full weight, street trim, and street tire RS3 trapping over 140 miles per hour.


      Look at this:


      Now look at the mod list:

      - APR ECU Software, Upcoming Stage 3 Beta
      - TVS Engineering Stage 3 DSG Software
      - APR Intercooler
      - APR Downpipe
      - APR Stage 3 MPI/Port Injectors
      - SRM / Eurocode Tuning GTX Hybrid Turbocharger
      - SRM / Eurocode Tuning Brushless Intank Fuel Pump
      - SRM / Eurocode Tuning Pump Controller
      - SRM / Eurocode Tuning Throttle Body Inlet
      - Forge Motorsport Turbo Inlet Hose
      - Integrated Engineering Intake
      - Iroz Motorsport DSG Catch Can
      - APR Lowering Springs

      There is no reason this car could not be prepped to break into the 9's either but knowing you can do a 10-flat in daily trim is pretty damn impressive.

      Stock engine, stock transmission, stock wheels, stock brakes, and stock rear-section exhaust.

        The motor wont last long there. People are sacrificing motors on these cars daily to get quick/fast "stock" motor times. We own one of these and love it, but honestly the F8X S55 platform is turning out to be just as impressive. RWD only with 1.7 60 fts on stock turbos running mid 10's. Upgraded turbos stock motor running high 9's with just seats out. Built motor upgraded turbos running mid to low 9's. Thats right on par with any 2.5T without the AWD launch.

        Fair enough. Pretty big price difference though, isn't it? RS3 bang for the buck is amazing.

        Both awesome platforms, but the RS3 is running street tires and full trim. And can do a 10s pass consistently. The F8x will be on drag tires at a minimum (and sounds like rear seats removed) and I bet it takes a pretty solid driver multiple tries to consistently lay down a 10s pass. Plus, the S55 has had its fair share of motor problems too. In fact, I feel like I hear more about that than I hear about blown DAZA motors. But one thing I do hear constantly about is 10s RS3s.

        Might as well say 9-second RS3's. These things are nuts.

        I was being conservative Click here to enlarge It’s such an incredible platform. Don’t get me wrong, I love the F8x too, but the DAZA cars are truly nuts.
