    New overall B8 S4 1/4 mile record - 11.7@116

    The B8 S4 continues to evolve and the 1/4 mile times continue to drop. Just a little over a week ago we reported the first 11 second B8 S4. That run was an 11.9@117.73 and this was improved to 11.7. The trap speed was only 116 but this same car also hit 118 setting a new fastest time in the process as well. The vehicle below is a 2010 S4 with DSG. It is running a beta APR race tune, APR pulley, miltek exhaust, and a custom intake.

    I have a question - is that 2010 using launch control??

    We all know only 2011's have that and I cant see clearly due to the steering wheel in the way.. It does have a moment at 3500rpmish where it pauses and what looks to be catching (or maybe spinning wheels)

    Awesome results!!!

    actually, I just saw the other post showing 11.9sec 1/4 time and you mentioned it was primetime. If I recall he has stated before his 2010 does not have launch control and he has a simple technique of left foot brake and perfect timing when smashing the throttle (has to be perfect swap).

    Just 'looks' like launch control on the video lol but u never know these days.

    Why would his car not have launch control?

    I've found that only certain gearboxes have launch control, not all auto gearboxes have launch control.

    Edit: Didn't notice this was a necro'ed thread.

    i wonder if the LC "missing" is anything like on some of the DSG transmissions in the VW line up. For instance the '12 GLI didn't come from VW with being able to activate it. However, GIAC's DSG flash was able to activate it, you just needed to get the traction control button to add onto the car.

    Great info.
    Thanks for posting.

    I really wanted to replace my daily driver with a S4, but I think the 2013+ S6 makes the S4 obsolete, at least for me.
    The S6 is worth the extra money for the V8 over V6, turbos over supercharger, increased size..... and all with a minimal weight increase over a S5 with the 4.2L V8.
