here I got one for you guys my buddies think that one of their 1.8T 5/6 speed golf's (stock) would beat my truck (in sig) in a race I say BS what do you guys think.

I also just added traction bars again I say:lol3: bring it and I walk all over him

sounds like you got a nicely modified CTD, those golfs are quick tho. Try it and make sure your on the left side when racing so you can smoke him out! I love doing that. I'd say you got him beat! good luck.

I got some stacks so It dont matter what side i'm on HAHAHA it just matters if he's behind me

also you think it will be that close seeings as he still has to row gears and I have a built auto

I've actually raced one in my old truck (D-Max). You'll eat him up off the line and on pulls but on top end, you'll lose. I always tell those little quick cars that beat me in a race "Wanna hook up and pull?", I get the obvious response back. I gotta feel vindicated some way....

You will win easy. I have a '06 Jetta with this in it and if it is stock you should leave it behind up to any speed. If he has chip, injectors, etc. you might run into trouble.

golfs are pretty quick, two of my buddies have them, i was on my bike one night following one of them on the freeway, he was divin quick, i was up to 120 to catch up to him. his car will actually be featured in eurotuner magazine in a few months, mostly for looks though

them Mercedes diesels SUCK!!! my brother has one to go to work, and it is ok on diesel, but reliability is a nightmare, all the time he calls my other brother," Hey, can I borrow your car, my bug broke down, and it needs a new injector pump and a timing chain." it is a good thing he's a diesel mechanic for W.W. Williams.

It's a VW... many of the cars are quick that come from VW, but the specs on the engine are 100hp and 175lbs of torque I believe.
