      Thanks. Was it the long downhill and heavy braking zone before the 90 degree left hander? I recall a lot of cars tend to lose braking there and overrun the corner ... insane track.

      Missed this post as I was working on my TT (changing out the brakes). How was the race? It looks like the TTRS did not do so well (DNF after 85 laps). What happened? The podium appears to have been...

      That is the cam chain tensioner bolt. I wonder if they used a longer one to account for the fitting that prevents it from going all the way in??

      Rear diff is about 1L (I used an Audi 1L bottle to change that out). The way you know its the right amount is ensuring car is level when changing it out and filling it until the oil starts to over...
