Sweeet car,
Was in Rotterdam/Amsterdam at the weekend (for the third time) Holland is great,
I did notice the Dutch have a sweet tooth and judging by your boot full of goodies you have too.
Looking to get round 'the ring' in the B6 at some point, but after a track day (as you have found) you really notice how standard brakes on heavy Audi's are just not up to heavy use! Some race pads iam sure will definitely help.

Holland = tax country, lol.

As for the brakes, yes they are underpowered. Having different pads only extends this for a very short amount of time, but no huge numbers. At the end of the day it's still fading huge after a few corners and heavily braking.

Knowing that tracks only occur a few times a year, i dont think it's worth it for me to switch to keramic brakes. They need to be heated up properly as well and thats not really suited for daily use.

Personally i'm really pleased with the stock brakes of an RS4 B5. I had todo 2 times a emergency stop and trust me, that boat stops right when you want it. The side effect is that brake warping occurs very quickly.

For my work i am weekly in Amsterdam. But you should never park your car without a decent alarm or security system in either amsterdam or rotterdam. Problem is is that these cars get stolen often, and usually set on fire after a robbery and all.

It's a plague.

Much stiffer and more solid, esp in cornering, but some said if you dont maintain the powerflex with lubricant once in a while it will start sqeeking at minimum movement and all.

On the ring it's a blessing; hard cornering and well balanced.

I had the car for sale since beginnen of this month now. I know i'm not going to get back the requested price. The biggest culprit for people is the high milage (220000, 350000km) and it's a bad moment to sell a car.

I was wondering if we could strip it, yes, that was'nt all a problem, but i woud'nt wanted to be with parts for perhaps over 2 years in my barn.

So i made up my mind; going for all possible repairs, including a rebuild engine. And just keep the car as a weekend one.

It's tough, knowing an engine rebuild does'nt come cheap, and our power target is around 600 to 800HP. But we can do some work from here up to the summer now, see where we get

First go to a good tuner like MRC and make a plan how to get to that kind of power.
make sure to stick to that plan and do the build together with the tuner so the best result can be achieved.

btw, there is a big difference (in budget and reliability ) between 600 and 800ps.

Better go for a reliable and daily drive-able 600ps the a peak value of 800.

MRC = UK right? Well, i live in Holland, and i dont think shipping an complete car or engine is an option.

We where aiming for a complete rebuild of a used engine bought on Ebay PL / DE etc with brand new parts, 3L, bigger turbo's, IC's, injectors, fueling pump and all that. Have like 25% overhead on max power.

And when that setup is ready, simply head to a respected tuner either in Germany or Swiss if we really have to and let them do their magic.

Ofcourse, i'd always go for reliability rather top peak power.

And the reason your selling your RS, is?

Well, http://audisrs.com/about67780.html did'nt went easy as it seemed, 2 ABS sensors broke off, wheel safety nut broke off as well, small things that looks like an half day of work go into $ easily.

Stupid RS. Better to simply put her in the winter in the garage, dont let it out before summer.

Okay, good for you



New motor mounts, old vs new. Old one was cracked, and caused it to sometimes bonk around when shifting gears.



Common problem with these things... after 3 times use they simply break off.

Most of the work is done by now, took 3 days, started with a simple ABS ring but ended up in ordering all sort of new parts to get it right. Gave it some fresh fluids, filters, sparks, it's good for a while now.

We ordered new brakes, complete new kit for front and back. Will be installed within 2 weeks, since delivery takes some time.
