In Topic: The St Has Been Given A Challenge!

The ST may win up to 60 but the audi will soon !Removed! past it, again the most key factor here is driver ability. If one person doesn't have the faintest clue about track driving and only played forza etc it's no competition.Sent from my SM-N9005 using Ford OC mobile app


That should give me the edge then. Done a couple of track days in a Ferrari 360 and an Aston Martin DB9. On both occasions I got top marks from the instructor on my performance. He said the majority of guys don't get a high score because they turn up thinking they know it all already. The pros know what they're on about so the idea is to listen to them lol.

On the same day, I paid for 5 laps in an Ariel Atom that was driven by a pro driver. My god it was a butt clenching experience and the G generated through the bends actually hurt.

Will do. I don't think I will push the limits anyway as it's my pride and joy lol. If Ford handed me an ST to use with permission to go bonkers then I would lol

P.S, I was curious about how far behind I'd be in a drag race, my uncle and I agreed about corners

I am biased but my uncle is biased towards his A4 but concedes the ST will take corners better. Team RS developed the ST so it's going to be pretty special. The Quattro can't amend the laws of physics I'm afraid. Bearing in mind it doesn't have sports suspension either!

It is also a very nose heavy car so planting it through a sharp corner whilst weighing 1.6 tonnes means you are likely to understeer to just beyond Jupiter.

Grip can only do so much against the laws of physics. The ST is light and frankly amazing through the corners so if a pro driver dived into a sharp left turn in the ST at x mph and that was pushing the ST to its limits, he isn't going to be able to match that speed in the Audi due to the sheer weight and lack of sports suspension.

Interestingly, an equally matched (in power) Audi A4 Quattro and BMW 3 series on a track would see a victory for the Beemer if it is dry. This is because on a dry track, 4WD is slower.
