    1. Sebring 2012: Three Audi R8 LMP1s and A Pinto. Yup, It's Vintage Racing Sebring Style



      Somewhere on the way to the track, past the guy with the pot leaf camo Ramcharger and the fried bubble gum vendor (no really) you might just catch a heat of some vintage racing. This is Sebring after all, where world class (Audi R8 LMP1 x 3) meets low class (Ford Pinto... no offense to the owner, it's kind of cool). We've got shots of the Audis ...
    2. 12 Hours of Sebring: Audi Owner Laps + Hospitality and Corral Photos Now Live



      Part of every Audi Motorsport Experience hospitality program is always the gratuitous parade lap of the course. In this case, a large number of Audi owners had a chance to do a lap of the fabled Sebring track. Fourtitude contributors Bill Cho and Tim Enders took our Sebring rides (Audi R8 and A7 respectively) for the lap while I parked myself ...
    3. 12 Hours of Sebring: ALMS Autograph Session Photo Gallery Live



      Here's another set of photos from last weekend's 12 Horus of Sebring. This particular collection comes from the usual ALMS series autograph session in the race paddock. Highlights include a herd of cows visiting Audi's 2011 Le Mans winners and Audi rally legend (as well as retired Floridian) Hannu Mikkola who stopped in for a visit with ...
    4. 12 Hours of Sebring: Practice & Qualifying Photo Gallery Now Live



      First an apology for the lack of coverage of Sebring thus far. Our main laptop for production died while in Sebring for the 12 Hours and we were left a bit out of the race ourselves as a result. Laptop now working and data luckily secure, we're getting caught up just as quickly as possible. First up chronologically are photos from practice ...

      Unfortunately, I'm starting to think there is something wrong with my 3rd gear shift fork. From what I can see, the shifter will run through all the gears without the clutch, but it does hit every position (so there's no missing linkage). I verified by removing the airbox and shfiting through the positions at the tranny then looking into the car to see that the shifter changed position.

I want a new toy, and while the TT is great - some of the newer cars are really enticing. The Boxster has improved and I love the newer interiors. I could almost see myself driving a Nissan/Infiniti (2 door), and yet the long commute has me hankering for a big 2 door coupe (CLS, 650, etc..) I have a trip to Vietnam coming

      About a year ago, I landed a project in the Bay Area.

Extra pairs of shoes, several laptops and equipment.. To top it off, I get reimbursed for mileage at the gov't rate: $.55/mile.

      What a great opportunity to use the TT! It's

      I wouldn't say the Honeymoon period was "short" - perhaps it was more, "delayed."

      See, the car showed issues the minute it was delivered to me at the dealership. The lot attendant pulled the car up to the front of the dealership. I had stopped in after work to do the dealership, and the salesman followed me home to drop off the car I was driving so that I could come back to drive the TT home.

    9. My TT Blog - Post 1

      I fell in love with the lines of the TT since the concept debuted while I was in college. I would sit in class and draw the shape over and over as doodles in my notebook. I was in my 2nd job out of college when the New Beetle debuted. I had a 1966 Beetle and was pretty excited about the upcoming New Beetle. I had a deposit on the MY2000 1.8T New Beetle and finally got mine in late 1999. I hadn't really thought of the TT any more, so it was just kind of "out of sight, out of mind." ...
