    Yeah, I guess I knew all of that. I thought maybe there was another secret I wasn't aware of...unless "mashing" the brake is critical? Do you have to "mash" the brake,. or just hold enough so it doesn't pull you through the lights? Do you mash the throttle while you are mashing the brake, or just modulate it slightly, and then floor it when you let off the brake?

    turn off traction control in sport mode

    pull up to line and stage

    MASH the brake pedal! This activates full upshifts.

    You just gained .2ths. Thank you veddy much

    Mash and modulate. If you hear blips or throttle cut between shifts you did it wrong

    and I've sold 2 rs6 to buy one. No looking back. Apr downpipes on order. 10.80s here we come

    So no "barking" between shifts?

    Yeah.
    Also known as "AMAX" mode. Full power shifts.
    Think it's enough to just floor both pedals (after doing the ritual with ESP etc DHall1 mentioned), then let go of the brake pedal.

    I was talking to APR the other day and it seems they still can't address the counter, as they don't sell the TCU...yet. I'm also pretty sure I am over the "200" or so launches...if in fact this applies to the ZF's...

    Yeah, so in doing some googling, it seems the procedure is this:

    1. ESC off (not sure if you hold until brake guard is off too?, I usually do.)
    2. Pull it back into Sport.
    3. Push brake firmly (apparently MASH it)
    4. Push throttle gradually while RPM's rise (eventually hitting the kickdown switch as well, which I never did)
    5. When tach stops, let off brake and keep throttle mashed.

    Nope. And you only have to remove the front top cover to get the passenger airbox out to get the batwing out. This is my 2nd go around as my PCV went soon after I bought it. 3 hr job. Removing turbos adds an hour to that.

    Haven't figured out where they are yet, and whether I will replace them or leave them out.

    Likely buy replacement cartridges.


    Pics of what?

    Oil screen is under that distribution cover. Where your rags are left in the valley.

    Screen gets plugged>no oil for turbos=boom go the center cartridges

    funny, pcv was just done on mine. I pulled all the audi records before buying. Stupid audi tech left broken clips everywhere. Sum bitch
