edit just watched
that’s not a real dragstrip, and the driver acknowledges that the trap speed is not calculated properly, and the times are quite a bit quicker than at Santa Pod for same cars. Its’ a temporary setup at an old airport
that is a PES kit with an Eaton M112, not the TTS MRC kit in the promotional video
this same car has never been to Santa Pod, the only certified dragstrip in the UK…instead it has avoided it like the plague. The owner is a decent guy but for whatever reaon even though his car has been to MRC tuning 3 different times at least (MRC is like 30 miles from Santa Pod) he has never taken it to the strip there, nor have MRC even though he said they could.
the other video is an MRC tuned PES Eaton M90 kit vs. a stock RS4. It put about 4-5 car lengths on it. WE all know what EAton M90 kits with good drivers do on the FSI 4.2…they run about 12.5-12.6 @ 111-112. That’s what Spinner did in his S5. That’s what Kryptonik did in his RS4. Both guys had great launches, good conditions…and ran mid 12s.
So there you go. Some truth to pee on the fire of hype
p.s. for the record MRC has that TTS kit tuned and on an S5 and an RS4…and they drove the RS4 to the NURBURGRING IN FUCKING GERMANY to test the kit and get a lap time (8 minutes 30 seconds…a.k.a. 30 seconds slower than Audi achieved with a stock RS4)…so they could cross through the east of England, through France, Belgium, and Germany…but they couldn’t drive cross the county (thats COUNTY…not country) to Santa Pod, an IHRA certified dragstrip even though they were asked 20 times to on a5oc.
Why you might wonder? Well, the fastest MRC tuned B5 S4s tend to run mid 12s at Santa Pod, right after dynoing 600-700 and 800 hp (crank) on the MRC dyno.
All in all lots of smoke…lots of mirrors…and no proof from these guys. Looks like they can’t tune for shit…but they’re the only Audi tuner who speaks english as a first language, and are very popular over there.
We all know what happened when 91GL’s high 11 second car ran against an MRC tuned stage III B5 S4 right? He absolutely SMOKED it. Again…a mid 12s car. MRC’s wheelhouse is mid 12s cars.
