Modded WK2 vs X5M Drag race

Sorry if this is old news

It must have been really bad air. Bad times for both. Anyone know the story on this drag race?

Sadly, I didnt see it that way. The Jeep left at least .5 second too soon and the X5 almost caught him. Im guessing this Jeep has the full Corsa exhaust?

12.85 vs 13.39

Re: Modded WK2 vs X5M Drag race

Maybe a not so great run? Other members ran 12.9 stock I believe, or maybe corsa just sucks and loses power lol.

Oh, I agree. There is a substantial power difference. Im still enjoying mine a ton and an extra hundred horses would be cool, but Im not loosing sleep over it. Having said that, it will be fun to see the tuning come.

The rumor this fall on the tuning anouncement is supossed to happen when and where?

It definately had exhaust and what look to be a much shorter tire. It seems it could have turned a better time than that. It must have been a hot and humid day in MN during that run. Would have been nice to see the X5M run a 12.5 and the WK2 run a 12.8-12.9

Re: Modded WK2 vs X5M Drag race

The Jeep did well but, IMO, until it has FI it will be at a disadvantage against vehicles like the X5M, ML63, Cayenne Turbo, etc. All of the FI vehicles use turbos which can better compensate for variables such as temperature and altitude.
