anyone ever run an rs4 ?

Hey everyone...

My friend just bought a 2007 rs4. Car looks AMAZING, on some really nice 20" the stance looks RIDICULOUS. Anyway, have any of you ever ran one of these. He went for a ride in my car and was really surprised. Then I went for a ride in his car and I have to say that car looks spectacular but I felt like it was lacking in performance. He said that he feels like my car will pull on him down low, but not sure about up top. Does anyone have any experience running one of these?

I am just jb4 btw

pretty sure rs4 would pull on you. RS4 is more comparable to an M3.

Have him check for Carbon Build up! Almost every other rs4 has this problem, robs about 100whp from the car. Its a pretty serious problem with the RS4s.

With JB4, your car will pull on him down low and up top. Especially if he's running on 20s.

what you dont like the r8? 4.2 v8 or 5.2 v10? no love for the c5 rs6? or the b5 s4?

b5 s4 is probably #1

anyway, rs4 is slower than an e90-2 m3.

if you are modded out im sure u will pull him.

Thanks for the responses guys. If we end up running soon I'll throw some race gas in there and just put on map 5. I'm planning on getting my intake next week and maybe some downpipes early next month... and I'll have it on video I'll obvi run him in Mexico too

It doesn't seem like the rs4 traps too high. 104 or 105 is what i've been reading.

The Audi is too heavy and slow. Not enough tq. U will leave him from the line and he will not have a good chance to come back if u drive right IMO.
I run harder on map 2 than map 5. Map 5 I'm auto tuned at 11 psi :thumbsdown:
