    The golf R isn’t a real all wheel drive its a FWD whit the rear to assist when the front losses grip while the EVO got a center transfer case that can send the power to rear or front so it can do power slides while ur golf wil just understeer on the limit

    Should never jumpstart cars by linking jumper cables battery to battery. On the flat vehicle should hook earth to engine lift lug or body earth. When vehicle starts alt starts charging and end up with 2 cars charging one battery. Can explide batteries or fry computers.

    What's nice with the Golf is that's it's kind of a sleeper. Does't appear to be fast but kind of is. The EVO looks incredibly sexy and sounds great but everybody knows an EVO is fast.

      They shift fast for sure, no one can argue that. I'd wager here the big turbo was taking long to spool compared to the NA Golf. Possibly not tuned great too, seemed like it should have been faster on the straight.

    You have manual vs a dual clutch automatic. That’s a biggg advantage. That means constant boost between shifts and extremely fast shift times. On top of that, the 4Gs shine with how much power they can make off of simple bolt ons. FBO for FBO the evo is another monster. Great cars but this ones easily going to the Evo.

    napraznicul 27 days ago

    For somebody which really want/knows how to use downshifting at evo, that golf is garbage. In fact, that's main difference between thise two cars: one is permanent AWD fir real, other one is a fake awd.. in fact is a"permanent fwd" :))).. golf has not engine braking via awd transmission at all. Golf is a CHEAP chasis (very basic minimalist suspension design &materials) and too complicated engine ..via ecology huge bullshit of these days. Cannot be compared with a pure breed car as evo 9 is it.

  • joelden
    joelden 28 days ago

    I don't usually comment on videos, but due to all the love of the Golf R I wanted to.
    While running properly with no issues the R is a great car and with the right mods can easily make 11 second quarter mile times. But when it comes to reliability the Evo wins hands down all day everyday. I worked on high performance Euro cars for 5 years and would never own one. Look at the oil consumption on a high performance Euro compared to a high performance Japanese make and the Japanese cars win every time. And my most wanted car is a Focus RS so I'm not completely bias. But if you want performance, reliability, drivability and the most cost efficient car then a high performance Japanese make is the go.

Been following your show for years and just wanted to say thanks for all the time you put into teaching and being taught. My mate made the first Honda mini in the UK after watching your show legitimately aswell the first. Anyone living in the UK would have seen it at track days or summer action fest because he does the rounds. ✌️ ✌️
