Hi

Now and then yes, but not permanently.

I'm looking for my opponents on highways, much more fun.

Here we have the A2, A39 and A36

Hi

Underbody made of carbon, third act.

I've been thinking about modifying the capsule for a long time, but being half a kilo less safe.

The red edged area with the green cross is the carbon plate later.

I still don’t get it - but got to respect the effort and attention to detail. It’s bonkers, but well done!

Hi

In October 2018 I found this product on the internet at a parts dealer.
These parts come from disassembled vehicles.
It can be seen that Audi has been trying to save weight here.
Rear shelf with perforation and rear panel cladding.
Inspired by this measure, I did the same.

Rear wall cladding

Rear storage

The weight of the series part.

Minor weight 1.3Kg

Hi

The picture 3 with the steel brake is from the website German Rush.

A current picture with the front fender will be available soon.
