Audizine user JJones2012 is the latest GIAC B8 S4 customer to achieve a quarter mile record. On October 4th, 2014, he brought his 2012 S4 to St. Thomas Raceway in Sparta, ON. Conditions weren't ideal as the Density altitude was +450 feet at the time he was making his pass. However, using the launch control in GIAC's Performance DSG software, he was able to cut a record 60 foot time of 1.6042 seconds. For overall elapsed time, he made a best pass of 11.6108 @ 119.12 mph, which is the fastest on record. Up to this point, 11.615 @ 118.33 mph (-473 foot Density Altitude) was the fastest elapsed time for a B8 S4.

When it comes to 93 octane (98RON), GIAC has held both E.T. and trap speed records for some time now. AWE Tuning’s 2013 S5 outfitted with their full stage 2 upgrade package took the record from another GIAC customer earlier this year with an 11.883 @ 116.49 mph. Fast forward to October 3rd, Audizine user bigjohn009 brought his 2014 Audi S5 to Lebanon Valley Dragway for some passes on 93 octane. His S5 had only GIAC Stage 2 Version 2 software, GIAC DSG software, AWE Tuning pulley upgrade and a Roc Euro intake, with 93 octane fuel. It was full weight with factory wheels and tires. With the weather cooling down, he was able to set a new 93 octane record of 11.844 @ 116.27 mph. There has been some questions as to whether or not there were issues with tuning 2014 models and this new record puts those questions to rest.
