    what I don't like is the fact the he is not critical - but then exactly that brought him quite far for a youtuber

    Don't think that's RC's R8, looks like a undisguised mule of the next R8.

    Close enough. VAG's new motto is close enough is close enough.

    One of my friends ordered the wheels on the 911R to be painted Meissen Blue, it got shipped with silver ones.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Well, they made the Cayman look like a 911 derivate for a reason and I guess it took Audi a lot of effort to wrap the Huracan into an Audi dress. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    But seriously.  The Lambo is just a pimped up R8. There is no reason to keep mentioning it in the defense of the R8. Its the other way around. By far.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    With that reduced output, the biturbo V6 almost fulfills that role.  


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Speaking of tires...

    This is a comparison between the Michelin Cup 2 on the R8 vs. the latest Corvette Z06 with Z07 package.

    See the difference?

    Conclusion: The brand name type doesn't really say much nowadays, the differences are often huge, even if a tire carries the same name (type).

    Very interesting picture indeed Smiley


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Very interesting RC. Hard to believe that these are the same type of tires. yes


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    These shenanigans are basically equal to active cheating on customers and I blame the tire manufacturers for that. I get it, they are under pressure from car manufacturers but this is not right. 

    If I can configure a PZero or Cup 2 in 10 different setups (compound, tread pattern, etc.), this is insane (and dangerous, just imagine those idiots using OEM rated tires on different car brands). 

    From a discussion in an Audi forum, I noticed that many Audi R8 (first gen) drivers are using Porsche N-rated tires because they think they are better than the Audi rated R0 tires. mail Yeah...makes sense...tires for a RWD car with a heavy weight ratio setup in the rear (engine 911) on a mid engined car. What can go wrong?! 

    Tire and car manufacturers need to stop this nonsense.

    Also, the Cup 2 for the R8 is a joke. This is no real semi-slick. It works for a round or two and then it starts degrading fast (unlike other Cup 2 versions). So what is it useful for? Smiley Why not offer the Trofeo R for the R8, it is available for the Huracan. Or the new Corsa? Smiley

    X2 never seen a cup with that depth in the tread, that's more in line with what you would see in a regular sport tire

    Actually that's about the same as the ones on my 911R. And my Speciale before.

    The vette tire however looks like a shaved version.

    Video game --- my first thought, too RC!

    Unfortunately I see more and more bad tuning attempts on luxury sports cars. It seems that there is a group of people which can buy a lot of things with their money - except - taste!
