2001 GLS 1.8T Trip (she is pritty lookin)
15.7 @ 89 mph
on 15" stock rims
93 oct 1/2 a tank
Set of golf clubs in the trunk
I lost my slips, but IIRC:
16.8 @ 89 mph.
'98 AEB Tip. This was November '04, engine in peak tune with the Cartech, stock ECU, 440's, blah, blah, blah.
At this altitude (5300 ft) it's a bog-a-thon off the line. I'd love to run at sea level...
Christian......those golf clubs musta gave u a nice boost!!!!
i cant wait to run it again....i gotta find smaller rims/tires....i should DEF be close to a low 15.......whats the fastest passat 1/4 time?.....also whats the fastest TIP passat time?....on stock turbos of course
I took the clubs out and ran a 16.1.
There is a kid with a NEON that ran a 12.8. Those new turbo/intake kits that are on them make that little clown car roar. We are going back to the strip at the end of August again. I haven't done any preformance mods to my car since then (new DV on the way). Will a DV make any difference?
The strip we run at is 227 feet above sea level. Is the air at 5000 + feet make that big of a difference?

nah wont make a difference the DV
15.1 @ 92mph
mods: everyone should know by now
I run a [email protected], kinda Shi*$y. First time at the track. I'd love to improve. Honestly I didn't want to spin my tires through first and second, so I let off the throttle a bit. I'm chipped with a Nuespeed 1.0 bar. Passat B5 1.8T 99'. Hoping to go back when I get the abd intake. I'm looking for numbers in the mid to high 16's.
What is your lauch technique with the Tip, Alex?Originally Posted by evilvariant
Are low 14's possible without a bigger turbo????
Absolutely. Every time I go below 2000 ft it's like getting chipped, and the car is so mean off the line that it freaks me out.Originally Posted by Christian PI hope my K03 lasts long enough for me to find out. IIRC, Blade was running some really respectable times with stock turbo, but I don't recall for sure and I don't have any links. A search for posts by Blade would be illuminating...Originally Posted by vwturbo76
heres what to do....my best 60 foot time was a 2.333.........stage till the bottom yellows come on....hold the break, hodl the gas till about 2000 rpm or so....light turns green let it go
whats the best way to launch with the manual, with my integra revving to like 4k and slipping the clutch worked really well but it had a much stronger aftermarket clutch. i was at racing event at a local stoplight the other day and tried the same way. the clutch didnt hold and i got to smell burnt clutch the whole way home. so whats the trick with passats?
front tires @ 25psi back tires at 40psi. Break torque to close to 5psi...asr off.
I got a 16.2
I have a Manual Trans
APR 93 octane
TT Down pipe and exhaust
heavy 18" hp racing wheels
I don't understand why I got such a bad time, I understand why my rims would slow me down, but not by that much.It was my first time at the track, but i have practiced many times before. What rpm do you guys launch at with a maunal trans?wat rpm do you shift with an apr chip? or any chip for that matter?
I'm not sure what I am going to get when I go back to the track but I hung with a brand new STR 4 with the dealer plates still on it.
You'd be surprised. Short sidewalls suck for launching. Throw your 15's on, drop your pressure to 10-15 psi, and have a go. Launch at 3k, shift @ 7k for 1st and 2nd, and you can probably shift around 6.2-6.5k for 3rd to 4th (I don't have the gearbox ratios in front of me, sorry). Don't be a pussy!Originally Posted by DANGGER25
Yea, i'll try puttin my 15" rims on, i'm guessin that tire pressure is for the front. Yea, next time i'll take the tampon out before i go to race
That's a good sport!
5speed 4motion estate.
supersprint manifold & cusom ss exhuast.
18" RS4 replicas with 235 x 40s.
great fun. most other runs were low 16s. definately room to improve with practice.
felt a bit wierd up against scoobies and small jap tin cans with plastic windows, but hey, it was great fun.
Today at Bandimere, (5,860 ft), my best time was 16.1 @ 81 mph.
'00 A4 1.8T 5spd Quattro
Evo air intake
17" rims w/45 series tires
I'm pleased with it. Next time I'll have my car re-GIACed and run with less than a full tank. The first two runs I felt that I had "too much" traction, so the third time I dropped it at about 4-5,000 rpm and smoked my tires for what seemed like a second or so... finished 16.6.

If they are too low, and the launching area is too grippy... **SNAP**
There went an axle. Seen it way too many times here in Vegas, and we got a "slippy" track compared to a lot of other ones.
If you can snap an axle using an all season radial, you are officially my hero.
Let me get this straight - you're running low 16's at 5,000+ feet with a stock ECU?Originally Posted by maklioso
I've gotta find my timeslips...
Yeah... darn near 6000ft from what I can tell. I'm fortunate that I have the AWD, though, since I ran the same times as a guy with a newer GTI with APR Stage II and perf air intake. I can't wait to see how my wife's stock 2.7T A6 tip does!Originally Posted by Rusty
I just realised that I ran the car with the skid control option on. (doh!)that would have slown me up right? eg by holding back a fraction especially at the start?
it's a V6 4motion.
Yeah turn that thing off!Originally Posted by steve10
I got a 16.9 @ 84.26 mph my first time out with stock wheels and all seasons at 37 psi. I also hadn't driven in a few years when I went. V6 wagon manual bone stock engine.
I'm going to run again in late August. My times should be better as I have been driving (again) for a year, I will put my stock wheels back on the front and drop the pressure to the low 20's. I expect mid 16's. It is specd to run a 16.3 from the factory...
