The Audi R8 Rear Wheel Drive (RWD / 2WD) conversion is compatible with the GEN 1 R8 V8, R8 V10 and R8 GT.
Converting to RWD drops 100lbs (V8) to 125lbs (V10) off the R8, including unsprung and rotational mass; makes the car significantly faster by reducing the drivetrain power loss between the engine and tires; increases clutch life; increases fuel economy; makes the car easier to drive at low speeds and makes clutch engagement easier.
The conversion is 100% reversible with no permanent modification to the car and is compatible on both manual, R-Tronic and S-Tronic cars. This is the lightest of the available RWD kits with a total weight of 2lbs 4oz.
The kit consists of two stainless steel axle deletes and installation instructions.
Optional: Titanium axle bolts to replace the one-time use factory steel axle bolts (front) and rear titanium axle nuts to replace factory steel nuts for additional weight loss. The Ti hardware reduces rotational and unsprung mass for quicker throttle, braking and suspension responses. The Ti hardware will not corrode like the factory steel components. Discounted with purchase of 2WD conversion (retail $290).
