Hi there, I'm a GTi owner here in Taiwan, I purchased a 07 GTi with DSG in Jan and modded with GIAC chips, EVO intake and Forge DV, I went to a local track last weekend and did a quarter mile run, the result was a surprisingly 13.94! I was wonder if anyone also have ran quarter miles and what are your results? Thank you.

Hey, you guys still have to work on the launches don't you? I was watching some videos talking about DSG launches and different methods, other than using the launch control or whatever.

I still give props to the driver... i'm not into patting machines on the back :p

The first time I went to the track I had a 14.90 In s mode and just floored it. My second pass I used the LC and ran 14.70. I had alot of wheel hop on the second pass if I would of reacted better to the wheel hop I'm sure I would have been in the 14.60's. So this weekend I went back and made seven runs the track was alittle damp it kept trying to rain.I could'nt break out of the 14.90's but I was also hot lapping. I was spinning like hell I was burning the tires well in to third. But I do have one thing to be happy about I killed a older m3. He ran a 14.10 and then proceeded to challenge me. I said whatever and started to walk away knowing he can beat me then I hear him tell his friend I'm scared. I said lets go I'm sure you'll win but I'm not scared. Then I kicked his bmw ass by two cars. He may have broke or spun he only ran a 16.40 and I took the win. O0

I ran a 15.00 with my stock GLI, its an 06 so I don't have LC. My buddy's 07 with LC ran a 14.47 with a 0-60 time of 6.3 and the only mod is an injen intake.

im all about races that involve tight corners and picking the best line to inter them with, but im kinda intrigued as to what it would run as well. we are at a disadvantage with the fwd, but heck, its all fun.

I think the DSG helped a bit and I was also able to control my wheel hop to minimum...will try again in couple of months after my down pipe is installed...

One thing I also did was shift around 6250 rpm before red line...I think that's when the power starts to drop

Ok so i took it to the track today it ran a 14.813 @ 92 mph with 2.2 60ft time.I only got one run before it was rained out, i didnt even get a full throttle launch. It was my first time to take it to the track im thikning i could have squeezed a 14.5 out of her. What do yall think?

I went tonight and ran 14.4's and a few 14.5's and I have stageII, First time at track, but Floorin it with a decent launch in S mode, figured I would put down better numbers then that. I was running 97-98mph into the traps, pretty f'n fun
