editor s letter we have to apologize for that bloody audi w ow that was my reaction to 034 s b5 audi a4 in this year s tuner gp it was breathtaking and i wasn t alone in being unable to adequately describe the car fellow competitors were similarly stumped by its ballistic performance before you continue reading here please turn to etgp in this issue and read the full report before i spoil the surprise now you ve done that you ll know 034 motorsport swept the board with the most dominant performance in our event s seven-year history every aspect of the car has been tested to its breaking point while every component is adjustable to ensure the team can extract the maximum performance the only problem with fielding such a breathtaking machine is it makes everything else look rather ordinary how many times will you hear that about two supercharged m3s or a turboed porsche as a result we did have to explain to some competitors why they appeared to be against a 900hp racecar in case you re thinking the same allow me to explain there was a time when you needed a b5 audi s4 to win etgp these cars collected the silverware for years and hp numbers climbed as the quarter-mile times tumbled in 2007 for example eurocode tuning s s4 put down 651hp while torque factory s had 515hp this was the first year for the 034 a4 vr6t and it delivered 645hp it was also beaten on the quarter mile by eurocode s 10.87sec run in 08 each team knew they had to try harder 034 put down 807hp on the dyno while eurocode hit 627hp however both suffered mechanical problems and withdrew before the end so in 09 034 was determined to finish the event with huge numbers yet the other audis had succumbed to the economy our problem was that apart from euro sport accessories all the teams in etgp09 were new to the event they d not seen the previous battles and had no idea how intense it had become they didn t know we had to hold the exhaust fan on the gt pro dyno to prevent the 034 a4 blowing it over on full boost nor did they know the engine would turn off our video cameras and prevent us from recording it last year so how could they know it would set an event record for the drag and dyno or be so much faster than its nearest rival on the road course so we congratulate 034 but apologize to competitors who thought etgp09 would be a pleasant day out but discovered they were in the middle of a war zone we didn t intend to ambush you but how do you prepare somebody for that level of performance we must also thank continental tire without whom etgp wouldn t happen oh and they ve retired the car from etgp keeping it for time attacks instead so we can look forward to an entirely new project next year and they promise more fireworks greg emmerson editor eurotuner@sorc.com www.storemags.com www.fantamag.com
