Transforming an Audi into a Racer: What to Know
There are plenty of reasons to just stick with the stock components of an Audi, as these types of vehicles are already quite high-performing and well-designed. But there are more reasons than not to choose to upgrade your Audi, and that’s because there is a diverse array of options available that can help you turn your Audi into a true on-road racer. Below, we’ll go over several of the major options available that can make an impact on the speed, power, and efficiency of your Audi, so you can decide for yourself on what to upgrade and what to leave as is.
Performance computer chips have become all the rage in vehicle modifications recently, and that’s because they’re both inexpensive and quite easy to use. Even a novice with little automotive tech knowledge can likely manage to get an Audi performance chip installed, and for a pro the job should take well under an hour to complete. There are downsides, such as the fact that a chip has serious limits to what effects it can achieve (it maxes out at around a 60 horsepower gain and 4-7mpg in fuel savings), though this is enough to give your Audi an edge over other vehicles on the highway.
If you’re looking for a physical add-on that’s significantly more powerful than a performance chip, an Audi performance part like a turbocharger or supercharger will certainly make an impression. You can add several hundred horsepower to your Audi with a turbocharger, but you’re also going to spend thousands, compared to under a hundred bucks for a standard performance chip. If money isn’t an object and you have advanced automotive know-how, physical performance add-ons are the way to go.
You don’t necessarily need to add something to an Audi to make it perform better and go faster. Sometimes, a simple body part replacement can do the trick, and then some. Hoods can be heavy and burdensome to engine output, but lightweight hood replacements counteract that effect. From ultra lightweight Audi fiberglass hoods to durable and light carbon fiber hoods, you have plenty of available options when it comes to designing a sleeker, more race-ready vehicular front end.
SEATTLE (July 24, 2011) – Team Falken’s Daijiro “Dai” Yoshihara took first at Evergreen Speedway’s Formula Drift “Throwdown” and took the lead in the 2011 Championship. It was the first win for Falken at Evergreen and the second win for Dai this season.
Driving the Discount Tire/Falken Tire Nissan S13 (240SX), Dai qualified 4th, while teammates Tyler McQuarrie and Justin Pawlak were 1st and 2nd, respectively, after Friday’s qualifying session. Defending Formula Drift Champion and Teammate Vaughn Gittin, Jr., qualified 12th, Darren McNamara in 19th and Falken privateer Ross Petty 25th.
Four of the five Team Falken drivers made it through the Top 32 round. Unfortunately, Justin Pawlak, who has been leading the Formula D standings virtually all season long, failed to move forward due to a mechanical failure, however, he remains second in the 2011 Championship, just 15 points behind Dai.
