    There are 3 Ice events this weekend! WAG, FVSCC, and CWSCC are all running!

    Jay, where are you looking to find these weekly events? The one I posted is just the Audi club and is safety focused, not HPDE. I'd be interested in HPDE and would also do some photos/vid.

    In regards to Rob...WHAT? I did not see or hear any of this. I just hope all is alright with him and his family.
    Do it right, or don't bother.

    I messaged him and it sounds like he is sick of it, has low compression on cyl 1 and got a little disenchanted/ didnt want to pull the motor and mess with it. I don't know if he is fully set on parting it yet, he got a ton of flak in the FB group he posted for sale. And yes, I too hope all is well, that is usually the sort of thing that causes stuff like this, and I hope its all ok.

    Anyone going to Road America autocross tomorrow? I'll be there with my B5 if I can finish the timing belt tonight. Not sure what the conditions will be and what tires to run. If its at all dry I don't want my winter tires on. Maybe will bring some all seasons or summers along too.

    Iíll be up there helping to run it this year. Look for me in a black Mitsubishi Outlander. The S4 I took it down with last year has been retired from winter racing this year.

    Iíll be up there at 6:30am to set up the long autocross. If youíd like conditions updates text me at 2174800800

    Would it be a bad idea to bring a few sets of wheels, have firestone winterforces on my car currently, was going to bring pirelli all seasons and Michelin pilot super sports as well.

    Probably a good idea. Itís really a tossup whether snows, all seasons, or summer tires will be the best for a cold dry surface. Youíll definitely the rash or snows on the pavement, but they should remain soft and fairly grippy in the cold temps. With the summer tires, The question will be whether you can get them up to temp or not. Maybe with the PSS you would be OK. Not like itís an R comp or anything. All seasons just kind of suck to be honest.

    Last year at the March event, I rolled the dice and brought the RE71Rs and it paid off. I was just barely able to get enough heat in them to get some grip, and it definitely showed against the snow tire cars.

    10th in class, best time was an 80 flat. I'm sure my steering didn't sound healthy...forgot to bleed the power steering after the timing belt which I guess you're supposed to do. My passenger thought he saw smoke but was just a false alarm, left the hood up to cool. Otherwise everything held up great! Summer tires were definitely the way to go. Was able to get good heat in the PSSs.

    So far every February event in the last 4 years has had snow. March is almost always dry.

    Glad you liked the course! I designed the lower part of it ;)

    I am keeping the car. My frustrations with the mechanical aspect of the project (i.e. engine build) just made me want to walk away from it. Everything else works great, the drivetrain, the three stage cooling system, brakes, etc. is on point. Ricky Rick came up to help me sort it out late last year and the most revealing thing to him was the amount of timing it could take. With 36 degree Celsius intake temps, it has the potential on E85 to make a great deal of HP. I just need to focus on getting a reliable short block built and incorporate a few things like a idle control unit and an after run coolant pump. The tuning aspect will continue and I will move forward. Everything is good with the family and the wife knows it's hard for me to walk away from anything unfinished...so here we go again. It runs pretty good, but not perfect. It will soon enough. It ain't over yet.

    Glad to see you persevering. Frustrating is an understatement when dealing with any type of engine failure. I hope it wasn't too costly to get a new rotating assembly sorted. I agree, you would have regretted it. I hope to see you soon.

    does anyone know the previous owner of this S4 for sale? Carfax says there was damage reported and although a long shot was hoping the owner or someone who knows them would be on here with some info about the damage/repair or just this car in general before I drive 4hrs to purchase. Also is there another shop in Milwaukee that anyone can recommend for a pre purchase inspection. Thanks!

    Also, anyone know if the service staff at Audi Milwaukee on Hwy 100 is "mod-friendly"? Initially I wanted to install intake and exhaust, but not if my CPO warranty will be voided. Any help is appreciated.

    My buddy is a tech there and he said as long as the mod doesnít have to do with the specific issue then it wonít void the warranty

    So I should be safe with an AWE exhaust? What about EPL tune?

    Welcome, Ben. I don't know those guys. Most of us use Yoosef at CMG detailing for paint correction and any coatings. Great service, great guy.
    https://www.cmgdetailing.com/

    EPL is a great option, especially if you want something a little more customizable like E85 files. I'm not sure but I believe Kelly Moss out in Madison was the local EPL flasher.

    I tried reaching out to CMG in the fall multiple times for some minor paint correction and ceramic coating on my Allroad. Despite calling during business hours and leaving messages twice (a week apart) no one returned my call or got back to me. It was enough for me to look elsewhere.

    I stopped by Exquisite Auto Spa in West Allis yesterday on the recommendation of a couple VW friends. Great group of guys. They seemed very knowledgeable on the products they use. They will be coating my car within the next few weeks.

    Huh. I don't know where and how you messaged him but he is usually very responsive for me. That said, he has become very popular. I had to book my detail session over a month in advance. Again, he responded to me, back and forth multiple times in a short time frame. Maybe he just happened to be by his computer. <Shrug>

    Old fashioned phone calls and voicemail. A lost art apparently.
