      Thanks all! I'm still in a state of disbelief that I've actually got one myself. I've been completely unable to focus on work, waiting for good weather this weekend so that I can go out and play. In...

      Rev limit in neutral?

      I've got a 2011 S4 manual transmission.

      Just noticed something today (I may have noticed it earlier and forgotten about it) - if I'm in neutral and stopped (obviously), when I floor the...

      Ahhh, thank you. A quick scouring of the internet located the order guide. So, the TTS launch edition MSRP is $51,900 + $925 destination charge + $5,550 for the launch edition package + $575 metallic...

      *Launch Edition* TTS. I can read the MSRP of the TTS and option it up like anybody else, but it doesn't speak to the 75 instances of the launch edition.
    6. Anyone know when the launch edition TTS will be...

      Anyone know when the launch edition TTS will be available to order and what it's price will be?

      The chinese carbon bike has been fantastic. Its only weak point has been that you need to really clamp the rear wheel in to make sure it doesn't bounce out. If I were getting it again I'd go 142x12...

      Yup. Race XC on a no-name Chinese carbon HT frame (HF-FM136) w/SRAM X0 drivetrain, brakes, etc., no-name Chinese carbon wheels. Comes in at about 21lb. I also race cyclocross on a Specialized Crux...

      You can use a SRAM PG-1070 12-27 or 12-28, or the XG 1090 CX cassette if you really want the 16 tooth option. Works fine with a Shimano drive train.

      Sounds like it could be a tight IT band causing the problem. Google IT band syndrome, or ITB syndrome. Get a foam roller and start using it before and after every ride. Also, like jnm2.0t said, your...

      I've got a 2011 S4 with manual transmission. It's my daily driver and I've had to drive in tons of traffic. With the amount of torque in the engine, I don't have to shift all the time. Even if I did,...

      I've done the CSS 2 day course at VIR as well as a one day CSS course. There definitely is a tangible difference in the instructor-to-student ratio between the two. On the 2-day course I felt that I...

      I'm going through the same thing - unlimited VZW data, but very spotty coverage at work. When I do get LTE, it's not very fast. I've gotta wonder if Verizon are throttling unlimited customers in an...
    15. Anyone tried smartauto24.com or oemcargps.com?

      I've just purchased a 2002 Passat GLS 4Motion wagon as a beater car. It does NOT have the monsson sound, but does have the premium double-DIN system.

      I want to rip that out and replace it with...

      Depends on the race. If the race is overly technical, expect crashes. I was less worried about crashes in cat 5 races than I was in cat 4 races, because every new young cat 4 racer thinks the only...

      Why do you want to do that? They're not comfortable and it takes a while to get used to them. Most group rides won't let you use aero bars either.

      Only if you don't maintain them properly. Keep the o-ring lubed and it keeps water out.

      Not sure I agree with that. I've used my powertap for something like 10,000 miles in all kinds of weather, including thunderstorms. I've had no problems with it at all.
