Hardly a surprise the little 4wd hatch thrashed you if so.
Well it was a surprise as a) it was dry and had no traction problems and b) Theres over 60 horses difference between us, plus I had a better power to weight ratio.
Stock Power to weight ratios:
8L S3 - 146 bhp / tonne
E92 335d - 170 bhp / tonne
Also the quattro on the 8L S3 was not permanent 4wd, it was an on demand system which primarily used FWD.
P.S. A friend of the families has owned almost every RS car Audi have produced. Starting with the RS2 - RS6, who cares about the numb handling with the power those figures put out.
