Just released the Audi S3, according to Audi powered by a modified version of the same motor as the GTI to produce 188Kw plus Quattro would put the car right up against the Scooby WRX Sti.
No doubt that dice would cause major damaal. Early indications are that the Scooby will blitz the S3. According to Audi stats the S3 will sprint o 100Km/h in 5.9s – very disappointing!! That’s no where near Scooby territory. Coupled with sport suspension & 18” alloys it should hit 250km/h, so let’s wait & see…
Motor: 2 litre FSI turbo, Quattro, straight six manual (nice)
Power: 188Kw / 350Nm @6000rpm
Performance Top speed: 250Km\h, 0-100Kmh:5.9s (like your average goolam will hit 5.9s every time)
Those Bavarian Maestro’s on de udder hand are cooking one hot & spicy terkhari. Spy shots of a supposed 135 Ti have emerged. Rumoured to be powered by a 3 litre turbo motor pushing out 225Kw. Insider info state that this model could be called the 135i M Coupe with the same motor as the 335i.Should take on the Scooby quite nicely.
Maybe not cos the scooby looks like its one step ahead of the game The 2008 Subaru STi sporting a much better design than previous models looks sure to take the game to a whole new level. The tweaked 2.5 litre flat four (boxer) motor will punch out about 235Kw twisting at 430Nm. That would be sure to leave the germans playing amongst themselves. Cos the only real contender for this black belt is the Mitsubishi Evo X (6th den), which looks a hell of a lot better. Looks like Mitsubishi are sticking with the straight 2 litre motor that has killed off Subaru many times before. Word has it the Evo will belt out about 230kw, but anythings possible here cos the Evo 9 FQ400 easily made 298kw huh huh. I remember those Top Gear fundi’s chasing down a Murcielago on the track with it. That was floppin unbelievable.
The Evo Looks sorted
Scooby looks much better than previous bug eye models, anyone’s guess which design will finalize

That’s right this sledge hammer out manoeuvred a lambo on the Top Gear track. Built to celebrate Mitsu’s 30th anniversary the FQ400 churns out 298Kw from a turbocharged 2.0 motor. The car was built as a limited edition of just 100 in the UK by Mitsubishi’s motorsport division Ralliart in partnership with a few other tuners. This weapon of mass destruction will bullet to 100Km/h in 3.5s, purely super car territory The scud has been built with some high tech sh*t including a Motec ECU, HKS conrods & 680cc injectors, Iridium spark plugs & carbon fibre trimmings.

Mods – Stage 2 think about it …
You’ve completed all the stage one mods your cars giving you great fuel consumption, brilliant power, excellent response & best of all you whipping most other cars. Lekker !! leave it that way, do not fiddle any more bhai.
The need for speed is intoxicating so for all da okes who have the urge for more power & want to seriously compete on the track its time to move on to some stage 2 mods. There’s no definite boundaries between these stages they are just classified in a way that’s progressive & makes sense. So over the next couple of weeks we checking out performance throttles, race clutches, lightened flywheels, gas flowed heads, cut cams & the list freakin goes on man. This is where some serious money is spent. The mods here are by no means cheap, mistakes can cost you dearly. Quality of workmanship could mean second best. So be sure to check out mekies reputations before dealing with them. In most cases mekies will deal with some type of engineer, find out who they are what work they’ve done & talk to some of their customers.
Time to break into the 14’s respected elders & brudders
