    Does anyone run with Audi club for HPDE? If so post your setups. I'm in the process of prepping my B8.5 for the track season and could use some tips.

    ok, so I almost set the brakes on fire. EBC yellows are not nearly enough for even a 15 minute session in the advanced group. I really disliked how the ABS worked when hot. - Its not a fluid issue, I was running Castrol Racing Brake Fluid. Basically, you had crap braking with a little feel, then nothing pedal to the floor pulsing with ABS. I'm honestly considering selling the car. Someone talk some sense into me.

    I had a 2014 S4 that I took to Buttonwillow and Willow Springs and destroyed the brakes trying to keep up with faster cars. I never boiled the stock brake fluid but did smoke the stock rotors and pads pretty bad. It got better with drilled and slotted rotors and EBC yellow. Still not very long life, maybe three events if you bed the pads rights and treat them nice in the street. I just took my new S3 to PBIR and had the same issue with the stock brakes, but did keep up with faster cars . Just got EBC yellow and cheap drilled/slotted rotors that will go on this weekend. Wanted to get EBC Blue pads but could not find them for the car. I'm going to Sebring in June and will let you how they do.

    Ive done 3 Hpdes with my 2015 S4, I knew the brakes and tires would be the second most important problem to address the Number one issue would be the driver (me) My background is in a Mazda RX8 which is a momentum car. The S4 is my first high power/torque car and like everyone I wanted to use that power. My set up is Carbotech pads on the front #10 and the back #8. front wheels OZ HTE on the back Enki. Tires are Michelin super sports with 10k street miles on them (I take them off the street wheels and put them on the track wheels at 10k) brake fluid Castrol SRF. Back to the driver with RX8 experience I find the brakes and tires do much better if I drive the S4 more like a Mazda than like a Corvette. So why did I choose an S4 the stock wheels have winter tires, my OZ Formula wheels always have new Supersports and my race wheels have shaved tires that last 2 days at the track, I got 6 days from the front #10 Carbotechs the back are still good (yes you do need a Ross tech VagCom) This is what works for me the brakes are no longer a major issue.

    Well I made some braking changes and it really helped the car. Like you said, it's also learning to drive differently with Awd vs RWD.
