Achtuning A3 Project

Posted on July 27, 2009 – 4:28 pm

Achtuning wants to credit Jamie Everett for this set of fantastic rolling shots captured of our Achtuning A3 Project! These shots were taken on the way to the WaterWerks 2009 event held at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, WA.

The Achtuning A3 project is proud to show off high quality performance parts from H&R, APR, StopTech, and Hartmann’s Forged Split-7 Wheels. Other than the factory votex kit painted by Dreamwerks Custom Paint in Monroe, WA little has been done to further enhance the exterior appeal of the car yet it turns heads on just about every corner. We are very pleased with how the project turned out.

Thank you Jamie, Hans, Andy, APR, H&R, and StopTech!

Stop, drop, and roll!

Posted on March 3, 2009 – 11:00 am

Last Friday we threw on the H&R Premium Coil-Over Suspension on each corner of the Achtuning A3 project, bringing the car closer to the ground where it belongs. More importantly of course, we’ll be able to handle local roads and tracks with ease and hug our 19″ Hartmann Forged Split-7 Wheels with the better performing suspension.

We’ve also got a new rear sub frame brace we’re testing out. This triangular piece mounts between the rear control arms with no extra drilling or modification and offers better handling and steering response in cornering. We’ll add a rear anti-roll bar the next chance we get to further eliminate body roll and try to neutralize some of the A3’s under-steer characteristics.

We took her out for a spin and the motor is putting down some good power! Clearly the stock 17s with all-season tires weren’t going to cut it and we immediately noticed severe brake fade after a few hard runs so brakes were definitely going to be the next order of business.

The StopTech 328x28mm, 4-piston Big Brake Kit ended up on the car yesterday and look fantastic with the red and black H&R suspension components!

Brake clearance was tight with the new 4-piston calipers but it was just enough to make things fit the way it needed…

We’re still undecided on the final wheel finish so for now we’ll keep them polished. Front bumper is also back on and a Votex kit might be the next thing added to our Achtuning A3 project.
