    The lets torque calculator seems to apply a constant for driver weight (it specifically asks for the weight without driver), but lets be honest, 20-30kgs here or there isnt going to make squat of a difference when you've got 400hp on tap.

    Drivetrain losses are pretty much irrelevant in real life. They appear hugely different on a rolling road, but thats only becuase your not measuring the losses from the two undriven wheels on the 2wd car.

    Can you tell me what your cars sticker says the weight is, and if you've done any mods that might have increased it?

    The site claims 1700kgs for an RS4 and 1505kgs for an S4, but that seems like a large difference for what is in effect a pretty similar car.

    LetsTorqueBHP calculates about 12 seconds for a 500BHP S4 so I'd say it is fairly accurate. 0.4 of a second could've been because he had a large lunch lol.

    Parker's give the S4 weight as 1595 KG which is the figure that I used for the calculation.

    0.4 seconds is a long time in drag racing!

    You could gain 0.4 seconds by pulling your wing mirrors in for less aerodynamic drag lol

    Nez can't 'pull in' his new less aerodynamic wings though! :D

    I've not been driving that long, always been it to bikes.
    I'm surprised how much power it takes to do a 12 sec standing quarter
    My old VF500 (84) could do a 12.5 on about 60bhp
