Topic: XTRD Hammered by a G5 Gti

Driving in the fast lane of the  N2 on Saturday night (with my parents in the car) when a Red Golf 5 Gti comes from the left hand lane and sits on my bumper. Thought this to be a bit strange given that the two lanes to my left were empty. Anyway, I moved over to let the guy past but rather than passing he made it obvious he was interested in playing…..

I accelerated and passed him only to remember that one of those permanent cameras and had to slow down (By now my mother was about to have heart failure). Once past the camera I dropped to 3rd gear to find the rev counter needle just under the magic lift zone. Hit the lift range, revved through to 8000 rpm and changed to 4th but the Gti had left me as though I was standing still before we had to slow down for cars ahead…..

Little disheartening that I got such big carrots – not sure who was more upset – me or my mom.

Another quick story, my wife was using my car and was coming under some pressure form a tool in an unknown car (in true female fashion neither she nor her sister could say what car the guy was driving). The tool thought it was his opportunity to get ahead of my wife at the Tongaat toll gate – they entered the toll gate together and  the booms opened at the same time.

From what she and her sister told me, she gave this guy a big hiding before slowing down and letting him go. To quote my wife ‘…..your car is a beast when your rev her……’

Re: XTRD Hammered by a G5 Gti

The Golf was probably worked as an X at the coast should stick with G5 GTI.

Dont feel bad, as you cannot compare Normal Aspirated with Turbo Charged

I agree, that is not a std GTi.

Yeah bud, you ran ONE G5 and beat it.
I beat my buddys SL65(which runs consistant 12.5's), too bad both his turbo's were damaged and needed replacing.
Can I really say that i'm not impressed SL65's????

In the time you picked up 60km/h, you managed to open such a big gap????
was he racing? or even moving?

you have a good point bru. . . . and lets also bear in mind here that the DSG was standard? im guessing ? VS a worked Runx RSI ? with cams


BBBUUUUUTTTT

Having said that i have raced a worked manual G5 gti, downpipe, software, induction,

i have branch exhaust and SRI. .  .and NO chip. . . .

we sit even all the way, i actually am faster in first gear but sometimes i cant hook second gear so he manages to just pass but after that im all up in his bumper like white on rice!

and those time that i do hook second perfectly i stay infront all the way or we even out and at thos times is driver skills that gives the advantage.

BUT you have a good point. . . .

Oh OK...  so if a G5 looses to an X - yeh, it must have had a broken turbo or something went wrong I guess....   ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/silly     ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/silly

Oh please, I ran alot of G5's on the road as well....   let's just say I still need to be impressed....    ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/neutral

Yes my car is worked a bit....   but keep in mind I have a 1800 NA running a 2.0L turbo at altitute....!!!!!!


And I can probably still spend 60K on my car to get to the price of what you pay for a G5.....

Re: XTRD Hammered by a G5 Gti

Goose, everybody entitled to their opinion I guess.
I'm yet to see a RunX that impresses me.

Btw, your Spec list looks great. Would really like to see your X go. . .

Re: XTRD Hammered by a G5 Gti

G5 is faster then a RunX

stock vs stock the G5 wins hands down

Re: XTRD Hammered by a G5 Gti

X's arent slow. I've seen Shailen take out a BWA GTi, in midrand(Opening more on top),
with his Xrsi. I think he had: CAM's, TRD Intake, TRD Flywheel, 63mm Zorst, Chip
That being said, the GTI was stock.
Mod for mod, GTi should take the win every time
