Audi seems to take the M3 off the line every time, but the M3 always catches up and passes by about 3rd or 4th gear. The Audi RS6 is a station wagon. Nice car. Right click, Save as. The file is around 8 megs. Nice video. :thumbup:

Kain, I don't know about the tranny I ran across the vid on an S4 site, but judging by the M3's little donut session I would guess it was a manual. Not sure if you can control the wheelspin like that with SMG.

Well let me say I'm impressed even more by that tire shredding session now that I know it was done with the SMG!

The M3 has always been able to beat the S4... all magazine and other tests have confirmed this. Despite the S4 having so much more hp and not being that much heavier.

The S4 guys are all making excuses, turns out it is an SMG car, a 6spd could have taken the S4 even earlier maybe beating him to 60.

Awesome video. That is pretty impressive that the M3 can overcome more HP more TQ, a larger engine and AWD.

Does show the weakness of SMG. BAD starts.. You'll see the SMG start off but move alittle then start heavy acceleration. There is some lag as the clutch fully engages after 2krpm.
