    1999.5 Audi A4 1.8 T With APR Stage 3 Kit

    IMG_1483.jpgIMG_3190.jpgAudi.jpgIMG_7460.jpg

    Sup guys?. This is my car. My blue SL you see in one of the pics was totaled, and I used the insurance money from that to buy my Step Father's Audi. The Audi is in great shape for the mileage (160K) and it is noticeably faster than my SL.

    I have one simple question, is it worth it to take this car to the track and risk breaking it? My parents would murder me if they knew, so I have to pretty much lie about where I'm going to be tomorrow night if I decide to do this.

    So again, is it really worth it? This car is my DD for College and Work. My Step Father really took care of this car.

    What about the fact that it was my Step Fathers? I feel like it wouldn't be right "sneaking" up to the track to do this.

    But at the same time, I want to see were my car is at in terms of 1/4 mile time and trap speed.

    at 160k id keep her a chick magnet and keep it clean and nice. look on youtube for vids of a car like it doing a 1/4 mile and use that for reference and, save on the wear & tear on a high miles car.kinda hard to explaine a snapped timing belt(or anything freaky) and a tow from the dragsrtip.

    Good point gltasn. I actually managed to snap my accessory belt my first time at the track with my SL. Tried launching it like a VR-4, pretty dumb.

    Even if I did go I won't be doing any 6K clutch dumps, maybe bring it up to 3K and ride the clutch a little and just see what it puts on the board.

    Any other thoughts?

    im the opposite. i built a car that can run 10's everyday and i wont take it to the track. i dont want to put the hard wear & tear on it or show off and fuck something up. i like to think i built a supercar and not a race car. dont get me wrong i enjoy the shit out of her and experience what she can do but, only did one 4500 clutch drop years ago and after 30 feet of all wheels smoking i was like, ok funs over, and have done it since.

    What bumper is that? I'm about to upgrade to an S4 bumper. The RS4 is too much work for my taste.

    -Chris Cessna's Stock short block Evo 8: 9.76@150 Worlds Fastest Stock Motor Evo 8 and First Stock Block In The 9's!
    -Shawna's DD Evo 8: 9.97@143.88 Best MPH of 145 Full leather interior, A/C, navigation, stock brakes, cruisin 9's in style
    -Cory's Stock 7 bolt talon: 10.3@136 No crank walk here...

    @ gltasn Damn dude burning all 4 tires?! What is your setup?

    @ DrkZide It's an RS4 bumper. Friend of mine has a white 2000 S4 with the same bumper, looks sick. Pretty sure it was modified to make fit on the A4 front. Don't really know how involved the process is, had it done by a shop after a small front end collision my Step Pops got into.

    @ Austin@STM You are right man it really isn't in my best interested to do this. Lets just say I do it anyway, knowing the risks, what do you suggest I do to give my self the best chance at not breaking anything. Like tips on launching and shifting. The car likes to "sputter" at high rpm's a little (Only thing I really noticed in terms of problems right now with the car).

    My son has a 2000 A4. I've worked on it a few times already, putting on new brake pads, R&I the ABS unit after repair. IMO the car is not easy to work on. Rear brakes were a bitch to do since you need a special tool to adjust the parking brake mechanism. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot his driver's door regulator broke (it has plastic guides in it and it's riveted on to the frame. Parts aren't cheap. I wouldn't mod it unless you're prepared to spend money to fix it when it breaks. Especially since you said its your DD.
