EQT MK7 Golf R - Thunder Hill East - On-Grid 2/4/2017 session 3

Posted by Ed Susman on

Here's a little video from the track day in my Golf R with On-Grid. I ran a new PB for this car of 2:08.5 which is about 5 seconds faster than when I ran it bone stock. The car now has an AMS Downpipe, APR Intake, CTS DV, APR Stage 2 Tune, and SuperPro rear sway bar. On this day I was running some street tires (Bridgestone Potenza S-04's in 255/40/17).

The car did great and I was really impressed with the improvement over stock. But the brakes were the major weak point as they are still completely stock and this was the 4th track day on them. Next up will be better pads and some ground control camber plates to see if we can dial out some of that understeer. 

Here is the video of the session with the fastest lap for the day:

  • Nice video! I have a 2019 R and am most likely going to get an AP with engine/trans tunes from you…but, I am curious what wheel offset you were running with those 255s and if there were any issues? I’m looking at a relatively light SCCA Solo STU build for mine. Thanks!
