Volkswagen Scirocco R ’10

I don’t do enough drag tunes and definitely not enough FF tunes. I was given this tune by Franco Damico to try and was quite pleased with it. I also really like this VW in general. Everyone always gives the Golf GTi all the attention, but the Scirocco I think looks a little cooler and still performs pretty well. Drag tunes are pretty straight forward, start at the line and hold the gas, but this one is slightly trickier to get fast times. Start in 2 and quickly shift the second you hit the redline to 3, all the other gears shift at the redline. If using NOS I found it best to still start in 2 and quick shift to 3, but the second you shift to 4 hit the NOS until the end. Since this is a FF car the tires will spin a lot at the start and any extra power from the NOS won’t help it go any faster. Once you are in 4th, however, you should have the traction to really put the power down. Not the fastest FF car around, but I did beat an SRT4 and a few other FF cars online when testing it.

    Ever tried tuning a Ferrari GTO for drag? It’s a odd beast, and an absolute mess to tune, but from I’ve tuned I can beat much higher spec than what the GTO would seem to be. Or at least, that’s what I like to think 😛

    • I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anyone use that car for drag before actually. I would imagine it has a lot of wheel spin?

      • Vinyl Scratch

        Surprisingly no, it picks up quite well actually. Biggest issue is getting the transmission down, there is an INCREDIBLE amount of gear lag

        You should have a GTO nearly 100% upgraded if you finished the Sierra Time Rally w/ the GTO
