Just wanted to send a big shout out to D. Great work this weekend.
I don’t know if D will make a thread on this or not. But it’s great to see yet ANOTHER strong performance out of the S6 cars. With just the needed basics.
JHM LW crank pulley
JHM intake spacers
The rest of the car down to the air filters is 100% stock. Maintenance work like new injectors, intake manifold and carbon clean was done. Just shows how good these cars are.
If the print is too small to see that is a 12.91@107 (106.95)
We all love the V10 motors and we all love the trapped potential of these cars. This year will be a big year for us I really feel it.
Just to put Ds time and some of the rest of our other 12 second times in the 1/4 into perspective
Here is a car and driver result on a 2014 R8
2014 Audi R8 4.2 V-8 Manual
Eight sensational cylinders, one fabulous gated shifter.
With only 430 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque, the V-8 engine trades the locomotive power of a larger engine for a rowdy character and 8250-rpm redline. Still, we managed to post a 4.2-second 0-to-60 time and reach the quarter-mile mark in 12.8 seconds at a trap speed of 111 mph. A top speed of 176 mph arrived at 7500 rpm in top gear, accompanied all the way by the V-8’s meaty exhaust note. Impressive, but if true supercar numbers are what you’re after, may we suggest the
R8 V-10 Plus, which shaves a full second from the 0-to-60 time and 1.4 seconds in the quarter-mile? Time is money, they say, and those seconds don’t come cheap, the V-10 Plus adding more than $50,000 to the 4.2 V-8 car’s $119,150 base price.
