Anyone working on anything cool this weekend?

Doing a timing chain tensioner job for a mk6 guy tomorrow and then replacing injectors on an older A4.

If I have time I'll throw in the new raxles on my track car that just arrived yesterday...

They are stronger. Hold up better to track abuse. More of a peace of mind thing for me being the car sees 10-15 track days a year.

Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but if you’re local to Chicago and looking for a brand new set of ROTIFORM 5x112 wheels (18x9.5), I have them posted here ROTIFORM CCV 18x9.5

Yes exactly. Doesnt add any performance. With a mechanical lsd and sticky tires can never be too safe when it comes to axles
