    Great stuff, I had missed it before. Looks like a lot of fun. How do you get involved? part of a club? CAMS licence required?

    Need a seriously thick front sway bar to fix the under steer.

    Yep, really sad way to end what was an epic build and such a relatively rare car.

    I'm assuming you will not be able to wait long before getting onto any project? Any thoughts for the future?

    Thank makes sense. Probably wouldn't want to run up miles on an RS6. I would think the NA V8 would also be quite economical cruising on the highway. Is that model before direct injection?

    Interesting choice from forced induction to NA V8? Would be a good interstate cruiser though.

    Why not consider a C5 RS6? IMO they seem like a great buy now and relatively solid car as far as I...

    That does sound convenient. We have the auto park feature on our 2016 BMW but it seems to need a relatively wide space to work.

    It is great when it works but I assume they have improved the...

    Tasmania does look like an awesome drive and sure easy to surpass 130 kph in some sections. I believe Targa Tasmania is the most epic of the Targas. Of course there are unlimited speed categories in...

    Really impressive numbers! Looking forward to seeing some 0-100 and 1/4 mile times with the E85. Any expectations? The quattro should be good for getting the traction down.

    R8 Track Version?

    Saw this R8 with a massive rear wing and spoiler kit. Looked set up for track. Must be a nightmare around the street unless it has a front lift.

    Looked so tiny next to the SUV but impressive to...

    I notice the torque curve has moved quite a bit to the right with the larger turbos but keeps going nearly to the red line.

    Very nice looking spec and seems like great value with those low ks.

    The B8.5 RS4 still has a great presence on the road when I see them.

    What are you changing to?
