Driving home on the 101 freeway in LA yesterday and a Golf R (maybe mk8?) starts doing pulls next to me in traffic and I glance over and he is recording with his phone and he started doing a honk count down so of course I oblige and we do a few 40mph rolling starts. I lose everyone.

If anyone sees the footage on social media please post it here so I can feel maximum shame and motivate me to keep modding my car.

Thanks y'all, and nice to meet everyone after stocking the forms for 9 months.

The fact you couldn't tell which Golf R generation it was is a big reason why I didn't want any Golf variant to begin with - too boring.

Welcome! I personally wouldn't do pulls in traffic - just take it to the track. The VN definitely holds its own. (y)

Mk8 would have smoked you yeah. Buddy of mine has a Mk7 and its dead even, despite his car having a DSG. Maybe a couple feet in it every shifts.

Tho he's tuned now so not anymore, maybe that was the case with you too lol. Probably more Rs than not end up tuned 😅

Get a tune if you want to pull on stock golf r. I pull on my buddies a couple car lengths and more when he misses a shift.

Keep in mind from a dig he gets me out the gate, but I always catch up and end up in front.

Now, if his r was tuned...that would be a completely different story, at least until I get a pure turbo.
