      ... And that's not all the deliveries for today, either! Just in, we're really excited about the brand new StopTech Trophy caliper recently developed/completed for the VW Golf R and we will go much further into detail about the Trophy kit from StopTech next week. Stay tuned!

      I'll need to update you with what happened last week while I was gone...



      It's done!! The APR "Stage 4" engine is in, and Bill took the Golf R to The Ridge Motorsport Park for this last weekend's ACNW track event, "Strassenlage" to put it through its paces and get to know this new monster. There are still a few, minor "tweaks" to really complete the project but for the most part it's done and running well! We expect this APR set-up should put us just under the 500hp mark while StopTech's Trophy BBK will aid in bringing all that power to a halt. More info and details yet to come but first, I must now go out and drive it!

      I went over to The ridge motorsport park while I was in shelton visting my parents. The golf R sounded really good out on the track.

      Dion,

      You guys still offering free install for the K04 setup? The time is nearing....

    11. 08-29-2012 11:34 AM #3441
      We sure are!

      In fact, we just got done doing a free K04 install on Shane's Tiggy earlier this week.

      Thanks Dion...makes me wish I kept my Tiguan after seeing the dyno numbers. Anyhow, I called while you were at lunch, with Wa tax and all, the kit is still out of my reach.

      You're actually voiding your ECU's warranty with any "chip" brand. That said, dealers around here are very mod-friendly and recognize the APR software we install on our customer cars do not cause the typical issues their customers bring to them to have covered under warranty. That said, you have to go into this knowing you have to "pay to play."

      Thomas knew right away after picking up his brand new Touareg that he needed a better looking wheel set-up to compliment his ride. His dealership had recommended a visit to Hartmann Wheels and after a quick visit to our Redmond showroom, Thomas immediately fell in love with the idea of running the 22" Hartmann HRS4-252-GS wheels. After recommending a set of 7mm H&R wheel spacers out back, Thomas was very pleased with the final results!

      With my exprience with dealers anything modified in the cars are cause for denying any warranty work!

      Any other mods planned for it? K04 maybe?

      Since the Golf R is already K04-equipped, there's really nothing more we need to do to this. We're running APR software with a high-pressure fuel pump, intake, inter-cooler, and exhaust. Basically an APR "Stage 2+" set-up for the Golf R/S3.

      While we are very brand loyal with regard to the parts we sell at Achtuning, we certainly wouldn't turn away an install of reputable-brand parts we don't offer, especially when it comes to brake and suspension upgrades as we feel we specialize specifically in those areas. So when Jason contacted us to install a set of KW V2 coil-overs on his Q5, we were happy to oblige!





      An already fantastic-looking Audi Q5 thanks to the Caractere body kit and HRE wheels is made even better with the lowered stance and performance-oriented suspension! Thanks for the opportunity, Jason!!

      While the A3 was stripped of it's engine in late 2009 for the purpose of installing APR's "Stage 4" (specific details yet to be released - but basically a port and polished head, upgraded internals, and bigger turbo) engine, the arrival of the Achtuning Golf R meant it would make more sense to put a 500hp-ish set-up into something that can put all that power to the ground using all 4 wheels. Therefore the "Stage 4" is now in our Golf R leaving us a low-mileage BPY engine to throw into the A3. There are some added benefits of running the BPY engine over the A3's CDL and they are:

      - Lower compression (9.8:1) forged pistons. BPY is 10.5:1.
      - strengthened connecting rods
      - enlarged wrist pins
      - stronger piston rings
      - upgraded bearings
      - reinforced engine block
      - upgraded camshafts (longer duration)
      - upgraded injectors (+13% flow)

      We're running APR's inter-cooler, Carbonio intake, and high pressure fuel pump along with a full APR 3" turbo-back exhaust. The software on the ECU is still the "Edition30/K04" file we ran in the A3 before the engine swap. (We had already installed the APR Ed30/K04 turbo kit on the original CDL motor.) Not much else planned for this thing for now, as we're just happy to see it back on the road!

      StopTech has unveiled their new line of racing brake pads!



      StopTech, the ultra performance and racing brand from Centric Parts, introduces a new line of StopTech Racing Brake Friction that brings the company’s “Brake Late, Finish First” philosophy to a wider range of racing disciplines. The new racing pads complement the company’s extensive range of high performance brake component and system upgrades - and help turn any StopTech system into a dedicated race system.

      Available in four formulations, the new StopTech Racing Brake Pads are engineered to provide optimal friction levels for a variety of different racing applications. All StopTech Racing Brake Pads provide shorter stops, increased control through superior pedal modulation, and fade-free performance at extreme racing temperatures. StopTech Racing pads are designed to provide superior performance in any racing brake system, and match the outstanding performance capabilities drivers have come to expect from all StopTech Racing Brake Systems and components.

      StopTech's unique metallic compounds are blended with carbon and graphite particles to provide an optimal high temperature race friction material. The result is smoother, more predictable and more consistent brake engagement along with exceptional release characteristics not found in most other racing friction materials.

      StopTech engineers work directly with race teams, often trackside, to gather valuable experience in dynamic real world conditions. Data is immediately integrated into the research and development process, resulting in optimized brake systems for individual racing programs.

      StopTech Racing Brake Pads Provide:

      • Optimized friction levels for shortest stops
      • Engineered for extreme temperatures
      • Superb modulation and release characteristics
      • Low compressibility for precise pedal actuation
      • Excellent pad and rotor life




      Pad Compound Characteristics

      SR34 Compound

      • Superior pedal feel and modulation characteristics
      • Formulated for high initial bite
      • Slight torque rise with temperature
      • Extremely low pad and abraded disc wear
      • All purpose pad for high grip, high power applications



      SR33 Compound

      • Slight reduction in torque compared to SR34 Compound
      • Excellent pedal modulation for applications requiring a medium friction level
      • Flat torque curve with temperature rise
      • Extreme fade resistance
      • Great for rear applications that require less friction but same level of control as SR34 Compound



      SR32 Compound

      • Similar friction levels to the SR34 Compound
      • Linear torque curve with temperature rise with excellent release characteristics
      • Superb abraded disc wear
      • Maximum high-temperature stability
      • For medium to high horsepower applications that require higher friction levels



      SR30 Compound

      • Medium to low friction levels with linear torque curve with rising temperature
      • Extreme high temperature fade resistance
      • Excellent modulation and release characteristics
      • Repeatable performance
      • For Touring Car rear applications and others requiring lower torque




      StopTech Racing Brake Friction products are available now. For more information about any StopTech product or to place an order, visit www.achtuning.com or give us a call - 425-895-0000.
