Audi S4 road racing at Lime Rock Park, May 2011 - GIAC tuned
2002 Audi S4 6-speed driving at Lime Rock Park in CT with the Audi Club.
Note - the camera is mounted on the driver's side foglight, hence why it
appears I'm ~5 feet away from all right-hand turn apexes!
For reference, at the end of the main straight speed is around 120-122 in
5th gear. While running the GIAC programming, I'm in 3rd and 4th around the
rest of the track
This session mods:
GIAC 93 octane program with 1.5 degrees advanced timing (Lemmiwinks)
Vast Water/Methanol injection
ST Coilovers (made by KW)
Vast Stage 3 clutch
Hawk HP Plus brake pads with Motul 600 brake fluid
Sumitomo HTR Z III tires
Video camera - Contour HD at 1080 resolution, mounted by drivers side fog
Cantilever air bag set up
A completely one off rear air ride system designed for a 1980 Chevy LUV
pick up. Truck will be completed with a Mustang II IFS. Much work left to do.

Audi Smokes BMW? 2010 Audi S4 vs. 2009 BMW 335i

Given all the praise heaped on the BMW 3 Series over the years, we can't
blame you for thinking there's more to the story. We've heard all the
conspiracy theories, most of them involving checks in large denominations
This might seem believable to a certain segment of the population, but
there's a far less interesting truth behind all those wins: The BMW was the
best car. Sure, certain rivals often upped their game in one area or
another, but the 3 Series always put it all together in a way that made it
So now the 2010 Audi S4 is here to take another shot. It's all-new this
year and the old V8 is gone. There's now a supercharged V6 in its place,
along with a lower price designed to better align the S4 with the BMW 335i.
The BMW 3 Series received a face-lift of its own last year. It was mostly
minor trim changes and the like, but we're told that iDrive thing was
tweaked again, too (oh, lovely).
Sounds like a fair fight, no?
Audi S4 B8 333 hp 2010 race with BMW 135i and Nissan 200SX
That's a short comparison of Audi S4 with BMW 135i, and same Audi with
Nissan 200SX. BMW had its engine modified to have almost 400hp, while
Nissan was tuned to a bit over 400hp, what's more, almost entire Nissan
interior was removed to make the car even lighter. S4 is still a completely
stock car with nothing changed inside. This all shows how good the new S4
from Ingolstadt really is. Despite having almost 70 hp less, it still can
make lower ET time either with BMW or Nissan. Probably, on Spring we'll
make some chip-tuning on Audi and then again, the car will be compared with
those two here again. Subscribe to be updated instantly ;)
2011 Audi S4
Pushing the car to the limits, almost. Keep in mind I had things in the
trunk, I was NOT in dynamic mode, I was in automatic and I had traction
2011 Audi S4 at Calabogie Oct 23rd 2010
First time on a track with a car. Should have had GoPro HD Hero on spot
meter so exposure not good at times. I'm not a good driver, but I'm better
than at the beginning of the day!
