I can't think of a good place to put this other than here, but Chris has just got back from Laguna Seca having spent the weekend out there with the road legal GIAC/VF Engineering "RSR+" 515bhp!!!! Mk5 Golf Gti competing in the "Redline Time attack", a single laptime shootout for all variations of cars!
This car was orignially the RSR car that Ryan went out and drove at Waterfest over the summer with the same turbo kit on it as the Regal RSS 350bhp car only this has uprated internals. The car has since changed owners and has been bought by the USA based software firm GIAC. they have compeltely revamped the Golf using thier pool of resources and that has resulted in the 515bhp car that was used at Laguna.
The car was entered in the FWD road legal class of the competition. Not only did the RSR+ win the FWD street class, it proved itself against the cars in the significantly less restricted classes with the Golf’s full interior, two-way adjustable suspension, and full road tyres. Tony dominated the FWD street class with a first place time of 1:44.737. Tony's lap time was over six seconds faster than that of the winner of the FWD modified class, which had much much more relexed regs.
The car was fully built in the engine side of things, Tony got fully involved requesting that we bring over aset of AST shocks as fitted to our Racecar, specifc material pads, harnesses etc!
Here's some pics of the acr and the awesome Laguna Venue!
