Gen.4 0BR Competition Haldex Controller

Unlike other aftermarket Haldex controllers, HPA’s Competition unit retains rear driveline engagement under braking; a key advantage in motorsports, and for driving enthusiasts.

The HPA Gen.4 Competition Controller is calibrated similar to the "Race mode" setting used in the standard Gen.4 Performance Controllers, but has the additional feature of increasing the clutch torque when braking. By doing so, wheel brake torque is now transferred rearwards through the AWD clutch, offering a far more aggressive deceleration capability. Additionally, the Competition controller will support left foot braking without disengaging the 4-motion clutch while out on the track.

This Gen.4 Competition unit does not offer the selectable modes offered in our standard Gen.4 Haldex Performance Controllers (Stock, Race, and Eco, for reference), and therefore no extra switch or remote is required.

3-mode (Race / Eco / Stock) “Switchable” Haldex controllers are also available. Golf R –specific bundles featuring an additional wireless remote/receiver or cable/switch can be ordered in lieu of our Competition variant if desired.

Core Interlock Dog Bone Mount

Our upgraded mounts reduce motor flex to improve torque transfer to the drivetrain, and prevent excessive movement under hard acceleration. Shifter engagement is faster and easier and stability is improved. These mounts will solidify the engine's connection to the chassis while still isolating its vibrations from the cabin.

The unique Core Interlock design was born to balance sensitive chassis harmonics while maintaining a comfortable feel of the engine at idle.

Unlike other urethane inserts which merely reinforce the OEM rubber mount; this is a completely re-engineered one stop solution that will control the engine’s motion without the need to install aftermarket side mounts.

The 75a (Red) mount is considered to be the best match for the Golf R, providing optimized performance without excessive cabin vibration. Stiffer (race inspired) durometer mounts are also available upon request.

Additional details on HPA's Dog Bone Mounts can be found here.

02M Short Throw Shifter

The HPA Short Throw Shifter is manufactured from a dedicated casting which is CNC machined to precise tolerances.

For the Golf R platform, these versatile pieces of hardware can be set up on one of two different positions to suit your preference: a sporty 20% reduction in throw or a more aggressive 35%/40% reduction.

The perfectly balanced shifter counter weight gives each shift a precise and positive engagement and greatly improves the feeling over the sloppy stock shifter.

The bright zinc plated finish ensures that the stock appearance of your engine compartment is maintained while protecting the casting from corrosion. Includes threaded pin / ball connection for connecting the shifter linkage.

High Performance Brake Kits

HPA is pleased to offer its High Performance Brake Kits for Mk5/Mk6 VW and Audi TT/A3 applications. The HPA Brake Kits are designed in conjunction with BAER Brakes and proudly made in the USA.

Key Design Elements:

Wheel Fitment: Unlike most Big Brake Kits, the HPA system is designed to fit behind the OEM 18" GTI, GLI, or Golf R wheels without any spacers. Note: Factory dust shield must be removed to accommodate larger rotor.

Weight Savings: These kits shave 6 pounds of rotational mass per rotor, which results in improved acceleration and deceleration, and a total of 32 pounds of un-sprung weight for improved suspension function.

Calipers: CNC machined from billet aluminum, the fixed calipers are designed to increase rigidity, improve braking efficiency, and improve pedal feel. Featuring internal crossover pipes, these calipers have a sleek streamlined look with no fragile external components. Pistons are sized to HPA specification with exact piston bore for perfect front and rear balance. Piston seals protect from dust, weather, and pressure to meet DOT spec.

Rotors: Two piece floating rotor with directional curved vanes, and HPA curved slots. Hats are anodized CNC machined aluminum, and discs are zinc-plated for corrosion protection.

Pads: The ceramic compound pads included with the kit are suitable for street and mild track use. They create minimal brake dust and are relatively quiet. Sharing the same profile as Corvette C5/C6, there are many different replacement options available on the open market. Note: the OEM pad wear sensors are eliminated.

SHS Coilovers

Developed in conjunction with the engineers at KW Automotive, the team at HPA Motorsports provides an out of the box coilover solution that is preset to perform.

HPA’s SHS coilovers offer an unmatched balance between handling and comfort. All SHS applications are based off KW’s twin tube low pressure damper design. Embracing KW’s patented valve technology, the high-speed dampening characteristics remain similar to OEM offering a near factory comfort level, while the low speed dampening power is increased to eliminate pitch and roll associated with heavy braking or corner entry. Each application features linear race springs on the front and progressive barrel springs on the rear.

SHS is an ideal suspension solution for the Golf R enthusiast looking to gain better control at corner entry on high-speed sprints, yet uses their car as a daily driver in the harsh real world environment.

Key Features:

  • Stainless steel construction guarantees the height adjustability won’t be lost through commuting on salt covered winter roads (KW INOX technology).
  • Self- centering integrated dust boots, which keep the winter sand and debris from damaging the piston rod seal for long life.
  • Stainless steel impregnated composite spring seats offer easy ride height adjustment all season long. No binding conventionally found with aluminum seats.
  • Race Springs are EPS powder and zinc-phosphate coated for long life.
  • Springs are made from chrome-silicon steel 54SiCR6 offering higher carry capacity with less material than standard steel wound springs.
  • Height adjustable on all 4 corners
  • Spanner Wrenches included for adjusting ride height

Lowering Range:

Part # HPA-204 - Mk6 R SHS Coilovers
Front 25-55mm
Rear 35-60mm
