One of my buds has a really sweet looking chipped A4 with exhaust. When I ride with him the car pulls pretty hard and has very impressive acceleration. When I had my Galant (non-VR4) S(low) he would just embarass me.

Well last night he is following me home when we get to a straight away, which we both know very well (meaning cop hideouts, etc.). We go from one to two lanes after a bridge and it stays this way for about two miles. Well after I go over the bridge I am a good 10 cars (I guess) ahead of him when I look in the rear and he is closing fast. By the time I put it in SS and drop it to third he is in my blind spot (in 4th I believe). I try and drop it to second (going about 40mph) when it flashes and doesn't let me so I stayed in third. The whole time I stayed about a half car to a car length in front but never gained. I was disappointed that I never gained although I may have had we keep going but then again he did catch me off guard and I was still able to hold him off. We hit maybe about 80 before I hit my brakes because we are approaching a known speed trap.

Round two (well not really). We pass the trap and see no cops so I figure its on! I am already in third at about 40-45 mph in SS when I drop it to second and I'm gone! Redline to about 7000rpms and shift it up (I actually shifted at about 6700 but it takes a split second for the ECU to shift). My car was moving and again I hit about 80+ when I look in the mirror and see my friend way back! In all fairness I caught him off guard this time and he didn't really try once he saw me take off!

Road was empty and it was pretty cool. Afterwards we went home and watched the Supra vs. Ferrari scene in Fast and Furious, to my girlfriend's dismay! "Smoke em!"

His car and pretty sweet and I almost bought an A4 because I loved his so much! We'll be going to the tracks in a few weeks with the Audi Club and get some real numbers...unfortunately, since I'll probably be the only TLS there, I'll have to line up against an S4 and get my ass handed to me! It should be fun either way! As long as I don't line up against bmw74 and his nasty S4!

On the bright spot I beat a 535i the other day on the Merritt and a late model Eclipse on the highway on my trip to NYC. The 535 was going pretty fast but get caught behind a car when I passed him. He gets behind me and when the car in front of me moves we have a clear path (on a straight no less). already had it in SS so I downshift to third and floor it I see the 535 behind me floor it as well and we hit about 100 (from about 60 initially) and the whole time I was gaining on him (slowly but surely). We had to shut it down cuz we came up to a car that looked like po-po (it wasn't). But he never came back for more.

The Eclipse was driving fast when he pasted me. I decided to follow and passed him. He then tried to catch but couldn't upto 115mph, when I finally shut it down. Both times I raced the roads were clear and I slowed down as I approached traffic.

You'll do fine. There are no haters in the Audi crew. Beleive me when I tell you EVERYTHING runs up there (from 9.5 second Monte Carlos, to 11 second snow mobiles). If you run around 15 you will be right in the middle of most of the peeps up there. Just do your best to stay away from some of the American muscle. In addition, if you have a friend you want to run against, just line up right in front of each other and tell the official that near the track that you want to run against each other. I did this with a WRX last time I was up there.....BTW, he ran a 14.5 and I ran a 13.89....You would be surprised how much of a difference .6 seconds is. He was more than a few cars behind me :D

I have only run once this year and I pulled a 13.89, but my 60 ft. times were terrible and I was on 92 octane. I will be running race gas on Friday and hopefully my launches will be a little better. I should be in the mid 13's when its all said and done on Friday. However, I will be slow compared to the Stage 3+ S4's that will be there. There will be some some running in the high 11's low 12's for sure.

Stop by and say wassup on Friday....I can garranty there will not be a lot of Cactus Avants and I have yet to see a TL run so I am looking forward to watching you take a couple of passes.

Hey thanks Ben. I'll look out for you. I'll be with Ray and I think some other Audi guys are caravanning up from Burlington Mall. I'm sure we'll see each other there. Just look out for the blue TLS with bird shit all over the windshield...focking birds!
