I had to post this up: Its time to let the cat out of the bag so to speak, weve been working on this project for some time but havent said much about it. Its really coming along though, and were getting very excited about it, so here are some of the details. 8) THE PURPOSE The car will debut at the 2007 Eurotuner Grand Prix in late September, so were making a big push to finish it, well also be running the car at the Redline and Superstreet Time Attack series, as well as many Audi club and other track day events. Ultimately, the purpose of the car is to promote 034Motorsport products and services, to serve as a product development test bed, and to make grown men go poopie in their pants when they get a ride. The car must be fast in the quarter-mile, must put down big-ish dyno #s, and also haul around a track eating EVOs in a single turn. Oh yea, it has to be drop dead reliable and dead nuts sexy as well. THE HISTORY Mid 2006 Matrix Integrated (in Washington State) put an A4 quattro rolling-chassis up for sale, gutted, caged, stock CVs and rear diff still installed, no engine or other drivetrain to speak of. In a moment of impulsiveness, Issam Abed purchased the chassis as it was a pretty good deal. We began speaking about it and the potential of the chassis had, and decided it would make a great platform for an 034Motorsport Time Attack car wed  been wanting to build. The cage and basic frame/chassis prep was already done, so all we had to do was put it together with some drivetrain and wala, easy! We took delivery of the chassis in early 2007 and began making preparation to have it done by the fall. All other work and parts performed are of 034Motorsport and its partner sponsors, overall a real team effort 8) THE ENGINE We wanted a motor that was powerful, reliable, low lag and very tractable, different, and affordable. No Cosworth V8s here, something someone could emulate in their garage for a sane budget. The different part ruled out the 1.8t or 2.7tt (which are both great motors obviously), I5 was too long and we already proved the hell out of that one. It either left the Harley V-Twin or the VW VR6 engine, and when late last year someone offered us a free 12v AAA long block with all accessories on it, the Harley started to look really expensive. The VR6 made a lot of sense, and Issams incessant hounding and panting over the topic helped too. The VR6 is compact, though its a little longer than a 2.7t, its as narrow as a 1.8t which leaves lots of room on the sides for cool turbo (NO s) and stuff. There is still plenty of room to fit the engine with a stock core support (slightly trimmed), and these Mo-effin VR6s, even 12vs, make tons of power, are very bulletproof and a dime-a-dozen.
