  • Iroz Motorsport fires back - 9.5@145 MQB EA888 record set with IMS780 upgraded MKVII Golf R

    A back and forth between Iroz Motorsport and APR is taking place on the EA888 2.0 liter MQB platform VW's. APR raised the bar with a new overall platform pass of 10.112 @ 142.76 last week in a front wheel drive MKVII Volkswagen GTI.


    Well, that record was broken and by quite a bit. It now stands at 9.580 @ 145.44. Incredible when you consider this was just done at the very slow Autoclub Dragway in Fontana at over 4000 feet of density altitude. Not a record breaking track and definitely not record breaking conditions.

    Yet, here we are. Iroz crushed their previous 10.2 second pass.

    Is this battle over? The IMS780 upgraded Golf R is able to put this power down thanks to all wheel drive with a Dodson upgraded dual clutch transmission. It will be hard for the record setting APR Stage III+ MKVII GTI to match the elapsed time.

    It certainly is incredible how well this platform is doing.

      All the squabbling over new turbo BMW's upping each other's MPH by .5 or ET by .02 and this platform is slaughtering records strides at a time. I love it.

      Their main problem won't be power but keeping the driveline together.

      doesn't the Golf R, Audi A3/S3 have the DQ250?

      i have heard the DQ500 is in the RS3, which right there makes it a better platform to build a 9 sec car.

      I also think its hilarious how awesome these cars respond to mods...and how other platforms struggle to even hit 10's with the same or even more power! AWD for the win.
