Stage III Audi B5 S4 quattro AWD SCCA Ice Race / Snow Cross (Subaru WRX STI, Mitsubishi Evo)...
Some footage of doing an SCCA Ice Race / Snow Cross (Saginaw Valley SCCA - Ross Lake) event in my 2001 B5 Audi S4 biturbo. The engine tuning is from VAST Performance and the turbos from Frankenturbos.
This was my first time ever doing an event like this, as you can see I had a great time (lots of drifting, sliding, rooster tails, etc). I'm looking forward to more events later this season...
The tires are (3 year old) Dunlop Wintersport 3D in 225/40/18 sizing...
Exhaust by Borla...
Also some shots of a beautiful Audi Urquattro (sport quattro) rally car!

Modified B5 Audi S4 quattro. A video compilation demonstrating the 2-step
"launch control" feature of my custom VAST performance Stage 3 Frankenturbo tune. When the vehicle is stopped,
the rev limit is set at 4,400 RPM for consistent launching. While holding
this RPM, the turbos can produce up to
about 6 psi with no load.
With this setup, 0-60 mph times in the high 3's are obtainable with a quick
The S4 also has piggie downpipes and a Borla single 3 inch Exhaust system.
Some bonus footage of a coworker who had never ridden in a semi-fast car
before is also included. :-)

The 3.0L V6 TDI is a beast. It starts and runs very smoothly at
-10°F/-23°C with no drama. The cars were sitting outside all night,
neither is equipped with a block heater (not needed). This is really one
