Yeah the low/midrange torque is huge compared to supercharged FA20's. Before his S3 he had a stage 2 TTRS and I remember that thing pulled like a train on the straights.

I've got a friend who's getting an RS3 so he's constantly telling me about them. Apparently they are really fast with just a tune, like mid 10's at 125+ mph. The 5 cyl engine intrigues me too,...

There's going to be a lot of variation based on specific dyno, weather, correction factors, etc. but FWIW my FR-S put down 177 whp with just a Perrin catback exhaust (arguably doesn't add any hp). ...

Both the GT3 and GT4 use a front macpherson strut setup. Porsche makes it confusing by calling the lower control arm the "lower wishbone", but if you look at the layout it's still a strut setup.

I've currently got a mk6 GTI and an FR-S. I enjoy them both, but they are really built for different purposes. I think it really comes down to how you're planning to use your car.

Yeah I expected it would be underpowered, but I'm surprised it wasn't more fun to drive given the tiny wheelbase. Was expecting it to be like a mini-Mini, but I guess not.

No I got the Apex wheels intending them to be my street & backup track setup. I went with 235/45 to get a bit more ride compliance and lengthen the gearing slightly for the street.

Finally a Miata coupe, and good looking too. Someone needs to make this happen. Ideally with the Miata 2.0 na engine but I'd take the Fiat 1.6t if I had to.
