    • APR stock turbo MKIII 8S TT-RS goes 10.2@131.83 in the 1/4 mile on E85 ethanol

      You may recall an APR tuned TT-RS recently went 10.336 @ 130.02. It was billed as full weight but had some things removed from the trunk. Regardless, another APR tuned Audi TT-RS on ethanol recently ran and improved the stock turbo TT-RS record to 10.285 @ 131.83.


      This is very close to the controversial Audi RS3 sedan pass of 10.265 @ 131.38 which is the quickest stock turbo record.

      This is now the tune only factory turbo TT-RS quickest and fastest record:


      Keeping track of these various records is becoming a full time job but the point is you can get a tune, some E85, and run low 10's in your TT-RS. Absolutely incredible!

      Edit for full mod list:

        Isn't this car on golf brakes and a a 16" wheel to hit these times? Sort of irrelevant considering the owner had to downgrade his car to achieve it... At least the cars with seats and cat back yanked will perform better on a road course, not worse, then their stock counterparts.

        I don't know.

        We're talking drag racing here. Going to smaller brakes to fit meatier rubber is part of the game.

        Very true, but a hell of a lot less reversible than yanking the seats and cat back in the parking lot (which is what this guy raised a stink about before).

        Is this the same guy running again or a different TT-RS?

        And yes, he did make a big stink about it. However, there is some truth to Iroz withholding details.

        Yes, the same guy comparing his TT RS with weight reduction (I believe after market seats and battery. I had to stop reading his posts as they were giving me brain damage, but he is also pretty damn hesitant to reveal everything done to his car) and 4" downsized wheel to a an rs3 that is likely still heavier than it after trackside weight removal.

        Then he is doing a lot of what he is accusing Iroz of doing which is hypocritical.

        So this is not full weight and this game of figuring out where to shave some weight or how to get a professional jockey to drive your car is getting a bit lame.

        Plus stock turbo records are for pussies. Upgrade the turbo already and go get some real records.

        exactly what i had been saying lol on the other thread!

        this is stockguru's car (aka 10secS4, aka ttrsleeper, aka 4.0ttvol, etc....), the guy with so many fake accounts that kept getting banned from audizine..... this is what he does... he accuses someone else of doing the exact same thing he is doing when they run better times than him... back in the B5 S4 days , he accused other peoples S4 that had better times, of not being Daily drivers and not being driven to the track, only to find out that he was doing the same thing = trailering his car to the track too #hypocrite Click here to enlarge

        To be fair I'd trailer a daily driver just to not have to deal with changing tires at the track but I get your point.

        Well right there you can see the race seat so I mean I guess the full weight stuff is long gone.

        Surprised he didn't pull the passenger seat really.

        not to mention he claims "full interior w/only race seat" but you can clearly see that in the back the rear trunk liner, and probably everything that is underneath it (spare, tool kit, etc), is removed and a poorly color matched piece of thin carpet is laid over it

        why no mention of that in his youtube video info? arghhhhh omg transparency Click here to enlarge, blah blah blah.... let's all create 100's of fake accounts and go troll him for not mentioning that like he did to others Click here to enlarge

        Honestly putting all the accusations and posturing aside, more platforms need this rear brake rotor ingenuity. I know its not something unique and uncommon for american muscle cars. However for euro cars i rarely see this.

        Why am I only hearing about this on the RS3? golf/a3 brakes to fit a 16" wheel and pull 1.4 60ft, could we get to 1.3 potentially with more practice and 16" wheels all around?

        We have tons of data on 1/4 mile times for M3/M4 335i and they have been struggling to hit 10s or 9s and the reason has always been traction....the power is there, the traction wasn't/...Why don't I see the BMW community embracing this idea? Can't they mount 528i brake rotors on a M5 and fit a 16" wheel? Why aren't M4 or M3's using the 320i brakes?

        Seems like a simple and inexpensive mod for great E.T. returns....

        As usual, you get all the facts wrong.

        Nobody ever claimed it was full weight except you and a couple other trolls.

        It's not a different TTRS. It's pretty obvious it's the same car.

        It's not a tune only. All the descriptions clearly state it's now running a Forge 3.5" intake pipe.

        Maybe if you'd put a little more time and effort into getting the facts straight for your posts your site wouldn't suck so much.

        No, it has Audi TT brakes. Golf brakes are much smaller.

        C&D tested both the Audi TT and Audi TTRS. The base TT had better braking from 70-0 MPH than the TTRS. Less brake fade too.

        The TTRS brakes are a bit overkill IMO and more for marketing/bragging rights than anything. My TTRS has been on the road course (PBIR) with both the stock brakes and TT brakes and had slightly quicker lap times with the TT brakes. Not a true apples to apples comparison as the car was lighter with the TT brakes but the point is even stock TT brakes are excellent (considerably bigger than Golf brakes).

        Just like with the spreadsheet and everything else, you're dead wrong here too. Nobody had better times than my S4. It was the quickest S4 in the country for over a decade. And did so with a bone stock motor and OEM turbos lol.

        My S4 was never trailered to the track. Not once. It was always driven there. The post you're referring to on Audizine was from another troll like yourself who posted a screenshot from my MySpace the day I bought my first S4 500+ miles away and trailered it home since it didn't have plates yet.

        Actually, we have. There are 15 inch conversion kits.

        It's just common in the domestic scene because they expect to drag race and have off the shelf solutions for small rear rotors.

        Oh I'm a troll now after being the only person to stand up for you?

        Maybe you're just an idiot?

        What facts are wrong? Kindly specify. The 10.3X run was originally presented as full weight so either APR lied or you misled APR. I think we know which one is more likely.

        I'm supposed to know what TT-RS belongs to whom from just seeing a slip? I don't follow you. You're not important.

        My sucky site produces more in revenue than your TT-RS is worth. Sounds like maybe you suck at life?

        Wow you're sooooo cool.

        It's really impressive how you go around claiming 'full interior' when you're stripping out everything you can.

        How insecure are you? Also, nobody give a $#@! about you trying to manipulate circumstances to get a 'stock turbo' record. No wonder you freaked out over Iroz and the RS3. This is all you have in life, isn't it?

        Do everyone a favor and seek professional help. You're a $#@!ing clown.
