    is any one here REALLY knowledgeable on the a4 1.8t sport (not quattro) - or know where I can find:
    the cars weight (standard will do)
    and the Drivetrain loss % :uhm:

    I have got a app for my iphone I want to try out, it is supposed to work out the bhp, and 0-60mp 1/4 mile etc

    cheers peeps

    Car's weight will be in the manual, not sure on drivetrain loss though.

    25% seems quite high, my t5 was 318 bhp and lost about 15% but thats a different make completely i guess around 15% fwd and 25% 4wd

    i would suspect the usual drivetrain losses would be around 20-35% depending on a whole range of factors, ie tyre type and pressure, how worn the gearbox is, gearbox oil temperature, road surface, condition of the braking system etc etc etc

    15% sounds quite low imo

    weight is somewhere around 1300kgs, dont know exactly but istr the 1.8tqs being 1380kgs so 80kgs off for the quattro system sounds fair
