    New GTI should come out ahead; similar actual whp, less weight, and more traction with available LSD.

    Equal? You think so? I pulled a little bit on one not too long ago rolling on 30mph. But yeah, maybe its the driver. Also, I have to agree with you that DSG transmission engagement shifts rather quickly and its awesome. But I would still rather have a standard.

    A buddy of mine has a bone stock GTI sport. I'm Freektuned "stage 3" with meth. Traction made it very difficult to pull on him, especially with his top end power. The low end torque of the focus would spin the tires, then hook up just in time to run out of breath in the top end. In the meantime, the GTI with little low end power wouldn't spin the tires, and the bigger turbo would help it take off in the higher rpms. No tractions issues with the limited slip for him.
