Had the privilege to be apart of my first ever Wekfest event and really the first ever major car show I’ve been in. Wekfest Chicago was a great event and I can’t wait for next year.

Most excellent.

Audi is finally back to running flawlessly, and I am officially going to be competing in Gridlife time Attack for a second year. Hoping for a win. #audi #b7s4 #gridlife #timeattack #scumbags4

+52hp!! Well done!!

[]Landon Shore

the red is a great touch...I have always been intrigued but those wheels, but now seeing them up close, they appear to be a bitch to clean haha

[]Kal Fortner

Yeah they definitely will be haha

[]Landon Shore

All part of the fun haha...just get a good, long bristle wheel brush, and you'll be set

[]Chris Dirkschneider

Nice touch of accent red to the white!

If it is finished, I will be running my time attack S4 in a winter autocross event at Road America. If not I will be driving the Audi S3 at the event. Hopefully I can rip the S4 on some snow tracks though even if it is not really set up for that.

Your choices are heartbreaking. :p

Audi knew what it was doing with that S3, pretty much copied the wheelbase of the B5 S4 to try and recapture some of that nostalgia. It's on my short list for if I ever replace my B5 S4, that S3 is just a fantastic car.

[]Kal Fortner

For sure it is, I just like my S4 track car better...lol but I really enjoy driving the S3 too since it’s lowered and has a resonator delete.

Kal Fortner149 days ago

Guys, I'm back and the S4 has a lot of new stuff done to it including a new swan neck wing, Turbomac wheels, shaved heads, long tube headers, catless downpipes, removed mufflers, new bumper, RE71R tires, and I am getting some racing coilovers this spring to replace the sport spring and shock setup that I have now. The car is absurdly loud now, like loud enough to set off car alarms from a cold start. It is turning into

Nice! I love that body style S4, that and the B5's were my favorite. When you track it, what group or event are you running with? I'm hoping to get back on track next season.

[]Kal Fortner

I either run Gridlife time attack, Scca track days, or some autocross on the side for fun.

[]Robert Sixto

In the past I've run with Midwest Council Sports Car club, they have what they call high speed autocross, which is basically time attack/time trial. Most of their events are over at Blackhawk farms. I'm really trying to get my FC prepped to run next year, maybe I'll see you out there! 👍

[]Yves Vds

Don't tracks also have noise limits? I know you can't run without mufflers on the Nürburgring. The officials will ban you immediately.

[]Kal Fortner

I am sure that is not the case for any actual race event. But tracks by me don’t have that rule.

[]Hayden Baker

Sounds pretty serious! Very nice! Everybody loves a loud track car

[]Jeff Bowman

Welcome back! Car sounds absolutley nasty. Have you had it on track before ?

[]Kal Fortner

Yup, raced it in time attack a few times and a bunch of track days.

[]Jeff Bowman

Sweet. What tracks have you been to?

[]Kal Fortner

Autobahn CC, Road America, Circuit of the Americas, Blackhawk Farms, and Gingerman Raceway.

Nice shot of my car from my last autocross

[]Sac Car Scene

Great photos, your car looks like it is set up quite well. What sort of brakes do you run on your Audi? Are they specifically for auto-crossing or both road and track?

[]Kal Fortner

Sorry for getting back to you so late, they're hawk performance track pads. The car is more setup for time attack than autocross, but I still do autox occasionally because it is fun.

[]Ernie Szots

Very cool.

One of my runs from Sunday, it was a tough course but ended up finding the right lines by the end of the day. #audi #racecar #autocross #autox #audisport #vorsprungdurchtechnik #unrealsoc #unrealsociety #fastaudi #audiv8 #v8 #straightpipe #b7s4 #leagueofperformance #loud #pov #racing #becauseracecar #scca #inrscca #greatdriver #racecardriver #toyotires #toyoer888r #r888r #rcompound #truthinengineering #grip #timeattackcar

Thought I'd share a great video put together of Gridlife by a friend. My car is in the video and all of the in car shots are of my car in time attack. It's the white S4. I'll try to update the mod list tonight.

Awesome video!

[]Ernie Szots

Really cool.

Kal Fortner345 days ago

Haven't been on here lately, but it's for a good reason, I've been getting my car ready for Gridlife which was this past weekend. If you haven't gone yet, you need to go to either the one upcoming in Atlanta of next year at Gingerman. It is one of the best automotive events in the world. I will update my cars page most likely tonight and that should take a while because I've done a lot to it since

[]Ernie Szots

Looking forward to the updates. Post pics/vids if you've got 'em. Only thing I've watched about Gridlife so far is Tyler Fialko's first vid on it.

Kal Fortner388 days ago

Good news is that I am getting a new car today or at least new to me. It is a 2006 B6 S4 that already comes lowered on H&R suspension. It also has BBS CH-R wheels on it. Same bolt pattern so I can use the Toyos and any other tires/wheels that I had for the A6 on it. Bad news is that the A6 has been totaled. A deer ran out in front of my on a twisty

Glad to hear you're okay!

[]Sheldon Hall

Glad you're alright man! The S4 is going sound soo nice with an exhaust.

Kal Fortner401 days ago

Toyos are all mounted up and ready for an autox next weekend! 

Kal Fortner406 days ago

Track day didn't happen today...had a blowout on the way to the track at 85 mph. Car's fine and everything was under complete control thanks to Quattro. I'll have to wait until May 19 now to do some practice at Gingerman before the Time Attack event at Gridlife. Good news though is I ended up getting the R888R's today.

Glad you and the car are fine after a blowout at 85 mph. That could have been all bad.

[]Jeff Scott

Great it didnt happen on track obviously. Good karma.

Who's going to Gridlife Midwest this year? I saw that all of the driving tickets are sold out so I'd be cool to see what cars are going to be there.

Kal Fortner431 days ago

They're in!!!

Kal Fortner431 days ago

Racing seats were delivered yesterday, now just waiting on the brackets...Shooting for having most of the mods done by mid April. Going to do bigger canards with a front splitter. Also, I should be ordering some R888R's soon with hyper bronze Cosmis R1's. Do you guys think the engine will cope fine with the higher G's?

Kal Fortner436 days ago

So I guess I told Braum the wrong part number, so here's the seats that I am getting now. They'll be here Monday. They're still red, just not suede.

Kal Fortner438 days ago

Just found out my seats won't get here until mid April. 😩

Kal Fortner441 days ago

Here's the new seats that hopefully will be here soon.

Kal Fortner441 days ago

Love how the pearl looks at night.

Kal Fortner447 days ago

Just ordered some red racing seats for the A6! I'll keep you guys updated on the install when they come in.

Kal Fortner494 days ago

Okay guys so I just signed up for the Gridlife time attack. The thing that I am kind of stressing about is the part of the rules that say that they can deny your entry if they feel that you are not at least an intermediate driver based on some evaluation questions. I have had about 2 years of experience and have driven on 3 different tracks which were both answers to the questions listed. I also put that

Kal Fortner500 days ago

I haven't posted in a while, not much to post about this time of year by me that is car related, but big things are coming this spring for the A6. Also, I'll be getting racing seats next month for it.
