    • VTT releases drag racing front brake kit for the Audi 8V RS3 sedan and 8S TT-RS

      A huge part of getting a healthy ET (elapsed time) in drag racing is having the proper rubber. Modern brakes on performance cars are quite big so going to a smaller wheel to have tires with plenty of sidewall often necessitates the need for a drag racing brake conversion.


      Kits can be found here: https://vargasturbo.com/product/vtt-...rag-brake-kit/

      Please note: Photos show kit without hats and brackets. They are scheduled to be finished at the CNC shop Friday, but we wanted to get these up for you guys before black Friday.

      Looking to make you Rs3/TTRS faster in the 1/4 mile or 1/2 mile racing? Want to run 17, or 15″ wheels, and slicks in the front? Want to drop close to 65lbs of weight off the front of the car at the same time? Do not want to break the bank while doing so? Look no further than the VTT Ultimake Front Drag kit for the Rs3/TTRS. This kit will allow you to run the wheel/tire combo you need to drop you ET’s all while putting the car on a significant diet over the stock front brake set up.

      The kit is a true plug and play set up using Genuine Wilwood parts, coupled with DOT approved brake lines, CNC rotor hats/brackets, and a CEL eliminator harness for the brake sensor.
