      Heres some pix of my 05 Jetta TDI that I just got done lowering with Eibach pro springs and put some 18'' MSR wheels on!





      Im looking to do some work to it but not really sure what my limitations are as far as block, auto trans, axel strength are? Any insight from anyone that knows about the TDI's would be great!

      Here's my 2010 Golf TDI going around the SCCA track





      I upgraded the tires and wheels later in the season.

      Here's a friends mk4 leaving a smoke cloud



      It was my first year in SCCA. This summer I picked up a ride with a subbie rs. Which makes a little sad that i wont be driving the TDI around the track.

      from an autocross a couple of summers ago..






      it was mostly stock back then. I have much better tires and brakes now, along with revo software. I had it on the track once last year, and will definitely be spending more time on the track this year.

      Rootrider, how is the revo software? Has the dealer done any ecu flashes to yours? Mine has suffered from the notorious hiccup and has been given an updated firmware that helped. At my 20k, they did a second flash which didn't make a difference. I want to do the flash, but don't want the dealer to wipe it while they try to QA their ecu software on my car.

      'notorious hiccup'? When I dyno'd my car with the Revo software the power was cut in the mid-rpm range for a split second.. we assume it's the ABS kicking in due to front wheel slip, since it only happened when we had just the front wheels turning (driving the rear wheels eliminated the issue).

      I'm scheduled to have my ecu flashed by the dealer next week.. and then we'll flash the latest revo revision onto the ecu and see how it goes.

      I have a rather boring video of my car on the track a couple of weeks ago


      it's quiet due to gopro's crappy audio, but then, all you're hearing is rain & tire noise.. the engine's fairly quiet.

      4:20 miata almost losing it
      5:10 fast lap on an open track

      @rootrider the hiccup/shudder/hesitation that occurs around 1800 - 2000 RPM for a lot of folks (you're lucky if you never saw it). Hence the reflash you will get from the dealer and each one makes it better. Mine used to actually die on occasion before the first software update. Because of that, I'm hesitant to get the Revo Flash as I don't want to bench flash it every 6 months, especially if it costs me money every time.

      BTW, how do you like your Direzza's in the rain? I've done a few HPDEs in the Rain and found them to be a tad slippery. Speaking of the lack of noise, people would laugh if I drove by all by myself as the TDI really doesn't make too much noise.

      I love the stance with the STaSIS/Koni coilovers. That's next on my list.

      do you have a DSG transmission? I know I've seen a lot of complaints about that. I have a 6spd manual.. the 'hesitation' I've experienced appears to be due to a slight lack of traction at times, and usually occurs around the 3000rpm range. I didn't have the issue on the stock ECU, but it happens occasionally with the Revo software.

      The Starspecs are very popular as an autocross tire and occasional track tire in the PNW due to their wet performance and how quickly they heat up. I've been on the track twice with them so far (one dry, one wet), and have used them daily for a little over a month now. They work very well in the wet, especially once they heat up. I'm very familiar with the performance of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus and Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires in the wet as well, and these aren't too far off, as long as they're not cold. I'm definitely happy with the Starspecs so far.
