9 second RS3

Came across this video and found it interesting, pretty nice looking RS3 as well.
What kills me is that he downgraded his brakes for weight reduction purposes. :confused:

It's a long video, almost 20 minutes, so if you want to just see the 9 second pass it's at the end.

His goal is to go fast in a straight line. If you're serious about that, small brakes are a necessity.

That's why I didn't get the Performance Package. Yeah...uh.....it's superior for roll racing.

I don't care how much they save, to me brakes are one of the most important upgrades you should do when your car is making a shit ton of power.

plenty of cooldown space fter the race. Lots of rotating mass reduced. Who gives a crap 9 seconds is awesome. Also been watching that channel lately, so much 5cyl greatness happening in the audi world!

I agree. This isn't a track-only car, he's driving it on the street. A stock R braked from 60 in only 90 feet when tested. What will his RS3 do it in?
