The wheel selection is poor for 18's because they were made for 19" wheels. Running them with 18" wheels for track duty further exacerbates the cooling issue because of the close tolerances and lack of air flow. All that being said, it is a great OEM plug and play upgrade and was relatively cheap during the recall phase for noisy brake pads. Audi wasn't asking for the parts back, so dealers (shady employees) were taking them off and basically selling them on eBay for cheap. In the end a 355 stop tech trophy kit fell in to my lap, so I sold the TTRS kit.


I added these to my superpro control arms and they are great.

Does anyone know if ROW Eurodyne files share any of the same data tables as US cars? Such a shame that Scott and I have the same engine and turbo build aside from his LOBA HPFP and whatever other ROW differences. Would love to compare tunes.

Do you have a picture of how they are mounted on your super pro control arms?

Not on hand. Would have to take some. They bolt over the front of the control arm.

Once the Mk6 Golf R calipers get done being powder coated and can get them installed, these would seem like a nice add-on down the road. The calipers will be paired with StopTech sport slotted 345mm rotors and HPS 5.0 street pads. Also will have the Tyrolsport caliper stiffening kit installed on them at the same time....hopefully they fit....
