    • 680 awhp USP Motorsports Audi RS3 sedan with SRM 2.5 TFSI hybrid turbo running multiple 9-second passes in the wet

      The 9-second recipe for the 8V Audi RS3 sedan and 8S MKIII TT-RS 2.5 TFSI is proven and can be accomplished with a hybrid turbocharger. That is truly incredible and quite honestly the platform may be the best German automotive tuning platform in the world today and that is without ignoring the existence of the 911 Turbo.


      It is very hard to argue against the aftermarket performance of the Audi RS3 sedan or TT-RS. Here is what USP Motorsports did to hit 9's at ATCO in the rain:

      SRM GTX hybrid turbocharger
      Forge Intercooler
      Milltek Downpipe
      KW V3 Coilovers
      Spulen Dog Bone Insert
      Integrated Engineering Carbon Fiber Intake
      Hoosier drag radials

      They say these mods are good for 680 horsepower to the wheels but they did not include a graph. They also did not post the timeslips for the runs although the video shows them hitting 9.84 @ 143.70 and 9.82 @ 143.60.

      More data would be appreciated in the form of slips and graphs but it's beyond clear at this point a hybrid turbo will get you will into the 9's on the platform.

        Wonder why they wrote 680? Maybe those are earlier runfiles?

        I love USP and it's a super fast car but Sticky but can you please quote your source for them "running multiple 9-second passes in the wet?" Because from what I heard, it was just this one pass and it was only towards the end of the run that it had started to rain. So Chris, being the seasoned racer that he is, simply stayed in it and it wound up being his best pass.

        I just went by the passes and conditions in their video.

        It did look to get drier out but they did run when it was wet.

        Either way, back to back 9-second passes.

        How do you dyno an AWD car on FWD dyno?

        They can disable the rear wheels and set it to FWD only.
