    A3\'s at the Ring

    Couple of pics I saw on Foutitude.com:
    [image]http://www.damajoo.org/phpBB2/album_pic.php?pic_id=1536.jpg[/image]

    [image]http://www.damajoo.org/phpBB2/album_pic.php?pic_id=1522.jpg[/image]

    [image]http://www.damajoo.org/phpBB2/album_pic.php?pic_id=1490.jpg[/image]

    The second car really reminds me of my own [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
    But does anyone know who makes this (i'm guessing carbon fibre) lip from as seen in Pic 1 & 2. Would like to see a few better pics of it..

    ** Can't seem to get the pics to work, just copy and paste them into your browser!

    Hey Steph!

    Not sure that WO is Audi's HQ? But it would make sense that they were testing mules...



    Ghetto, which wheels are those on pic 2?

    What's very nice about their suspension is that the rear camber seems to have been rectified: there's not as much as on a regular lowered A3... Smells like a factory job!

    Re: A3\'s at the Ring

    imho, they look gooooooooooood [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Must be 19" wheels and at least 235 tires... That's too much for me and the kind of roads I drive on. I'll change my 17"s for 18"s, but that would be about it. Too bad, really, as the BIG wheels look mint (to my eyes).

    Excuse my ignorance,but what makes you think they're genuine Audi prototypes and not just privately owned,customised cars ?

    bowfer, there not official Audi single frame grills. Look closely and they look like an additional centre cover, ala the ones you get from Abt etc. Could be mules, but dont think Audi would run a front splitter that chav like [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Re: A3\'s at the Ring

    I'm with Japper on this one - definitely not OEM front end on the single grille versh.

    The cars are running up towards the Hohe Acht (you can just make out the karussel in the background). This is a flat out section accelerating uphill from around 50mph to maybe 120mph (bike figures) so there will be a fair amount of compression on the suspension.

    Hopefully the RS3 will have matt surrounds on the new grille.

    The RS3 that isn't going to be made you mean??? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] How many times has it been in the press, Audi have said only RS models on 4 & 6. I look forward to the S3 when it arrives.

    Yep my mistake - S3. I just hope they go for the matt black surrounds as shown on the audi website when the Sportback was launched.

    no - a ZX9R with some choice mods! I did a few laps last year in a Golf PD130 after they threw me off the track (I forgot to take mirrors for the bike as I was doing Spa for 3 days afterwards). Cars may feel quick on the road, but I would be so bold to say that anything short of a good 911 or similar feels unbelievably tedious on a track. I would guess I managed a 10.30 lap?

    I will definitely do some timed laps in the Audi this year and will let you know how I get on... and I'll do my best to persuade some of you to join me on the trip. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Re: A3\'s at the Ring

    A ZX9R? Wos that, one of them Sinclair computer thingies?

    On a slightly more serious note, I did a "corporate" track day at Rockingham last year and the main ring there did NOT feel slow when we were doing in excess of 100 mph next to the concrete wall. Felt more like warp factor 5, especially when a fly smacked me on the visor. Nealry took me fookin face off.

    WO = Worms, a place just north of Mannheim....

    Audi brochures have cars with the plates usually either IN (Ingolstadt) or B (Berlin). Also, ABT's offices are in a place called Kempten (KE) which is miles away from WO.

    [/ QUOTE ]I was dropping into the Forest section a couple of years ago when I came around a bend ot find one of these. It wasn't so much a manouever as a reaction that got me past! since it's a public road, anything road legal is allowed from near race specs cars to coaches and mopeds.

    That's just insane! Better have good stability under braking, eh?

    Re: A3\'s at the Ring

    Stability is all important at the ring as trying to get the car straight to brake is one of the biggest challenges meaning you don't always achieve it!!

    p.s. Sorry for my spelling in the previous post!! It was late. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
