It depends on if you think the A8 will actually be in lock-up mode during heavy throttle (as on a road course). ;) If not, then the mechanical ratios you see above will not be representative. The...

The NAG1 is not a dual-clutch design. It is a multi-clutch-pack design with planetary gears and a fluid convertor just like any modern automatic, including the 8-spd (which was designed by ZF).

Well, I've had the opposite experience from you. These stock Michelin MXM4's didn't last long for me. I got close to about 25k on mines. I was happy to be rid of them at that point anyway. This is...

MTBE was only a carcinogen issue because they were dumping it in underground tanks along with the gasoline, and that was leeching into the groundwater. In the future, they will find exactly the same...

The wheel size could go either way, too. True, wider tires could be fit on the 20" wheels, but the 20" wheels are also heavier than the 18" wheels, and the OD of the standard tire size on the 20"...

Another nod to the theory that more traction combats wheel hop? Seems counter-intuitive, but the results seem to keep pointing that there is something here.

So if it is pulling power in the lower gears, then it isn't putting the power down.

Don't be silly. I said none of that.

I'm saying putting the power down simply means you have traction commensurate for most or all of the engine output (at any particular rpm of interest). That...

On a rwd 700 hp car, I don't think factory stagger is an unreasonable configuration. ;) 700 hp means "no compromise", so it seems the tire/wheel pkg should have been consistent with that.
