    • Watch a stock Audi TT-RS DSG spank a modded E9X M3 from a stop

      The TT-RS is a very quick little car, especially from a stop where its launch control with DSG is allowed to shine. The TT-RS in this video below is said to be stock and the M3 is said to be modded although we do not know what mods it has. It does not have enough horsepower however to overcome the disadvantage on the launch to the TT-RS though it does start to reel it in up top. The M3 also sounds like it is a manual during the gear changes which is a bit of a penalty. Goes to how how effective a dual clutch with all wheel drive is from a stop. Too bad Audi did not offer this gearbox in the USA.

        That M3 is DCT, no way in hell anyone could shift a manual like that. The TT-RS' launch is incredible, what a car.

        What's up with the lag on the 1st shift?

        The only lag I hear sounds like a little bit of wheelspin, but those shifts are way too fast to be manual.
