    Amazing run. I thought it would a low 13 second car. Was that with OEM 19" wheels and Continental sport contact tires?

    There isn't true launch control, but if you brake boost with ESP off the trans will make firmer/quicker gear changes.

    It was somewhat busy last night and we had some buddies racing for money so they were the main event I just wanted to go once and get a baseline. I will be back to really get a great time.

    How do you figure.. Sleeping at the light means.... Not sure, why I'm even responding to that comment. Everyone can chime in. Again, to the OP, go work bro, get that reaction, will yield a better time.

    Not sure why you're being condescending. The reaction time has no role in the ET. He could sit at the light for five seconds before moving and his time would be the same.

    Wow! 12.76 bone stock, that's fast. A V8 R8 from 2008 to 2012 did the quarter in 12.5-12.6 seconds....... That's some serious performance for a 4 door saloon.

    Well I'm no expert but isn't the point that the B8 needs LC whereas the B9 doesn't?

    B8 has the dual-clutch gearbox, therefore it needs to have LC so that the clutches can be engaged whilst the engine is spinning and then one is released as the brake is removed.
    B9 has a torque converter gearbox which inherently allows the engine to spin whilst the brake is applied - no LC needed. Also in theory the B9 should launch better than the B8 since the gearbox has the added advantage of torque multiplication when near the stall point.

    (I have no "axe to grind" re:B8vsB9 - this is just a technical comment)

    Yes, I put my foot in my mouth, and totally aware of that. I deserve to take it on the chin, for sure! Really hate for this thread to get hijacked by a stupid comment (mine), when the real focus is how well the OP did at the track. Create and new post and blast away and/or PM me.

    That is great performance for a bone stock S4. I was hoping for 12.9 or around there -- but this is def 'enough' to start.

    Maybe we just call it "Launch Control" with a wink because there's really no better name for it right now, but the B9 S4 (like all the other Audi ZF8 cars) does have a mode Audi calls Launch Control. Main benefit with the ZF8 is significantly quicker shift times. Sure, you get the torque multiplication of the stalled converter off the line, but that really seems no different whether you've activated "launch" or not....But... when in LC mode, it hammers shifts unlike most any stock slushbox I've ever driven. On tuned S/Q5s it seemed to be worth somewhere in the 0.3-0.5 second range in the quarter for the couple guys I've read try with and w/o "LC"
