    Mine will hit 50, maybe faster if I had a longer stretch but I don't like holding the throttle open that long :)

    50mph, stock, there is no way.

    he said stock rs4 3, not ss, or evo, no 2 speed or upgraded engine, STOCK.

    every one thinks there car goes above 50 because it looks fast(size is what it makes it look like that). Some can but are mildly hopped up not stock.

    I have a rs4-3 w/a os cvr .18 and red pinion gears and 43/39 spur gears and ive only hit 53 mph there is NO WAY they can do anymore than 40 mph stock if your lucky.

    there is a speed calc on my site. +/-2mph and is very easy to use. You just need to know what gearing you have. For the RS4 the Diffs are 13/38 and the trans is 47/12 stock but dont hold me to the trans ratio. Also you need to know the max engine rpm under load. should be really close to 28000 or 30000 RPM

    i would say mine hit around 40 on while redlining the engine. but i got rid of the 15FE for an OS engine and hit much faster, while redlining that too! im ghetto, only a 1 spd trans....wana upgrade this winter.

    Vette, I wish I knew that you needed a 2 speed when I had my car because I had an extra one. I had ordered one off of ebay for about $50 they ended up giving me two:D . I installed a 2 speed, graphite upper deck and a motor savor but never ran it. So I just traded it for a savage[8D].

    But I still say stock 34 to 40

    I'm not sure if I got an SS... it wasn't a kit. I have the 2 speed on a .15 and I matched it up with my actual car at 45, I passed my real car. So either I've been going VERY slow on the freeways (cops have written tickets to me stating otherwise), or out of the box my RS-4 3 Nitro with a 2 speed hits 50.

    isnt the SS a 0.12R engine? but i think it should've been faster man.
