The world of the performance aftermarket is almost as wide as it is deep. From Nissans to Lamborghinis, from the crème de la crème motorsports suppliers to the bottom of the junk pile to ebay companies there is a lot of options to sort from. Recently our Team dove into the Audi RS5 Big Brake Upgrade for the B8 / B8.5 S4. Within the particular category of braking however there are not so many players out there. Sure in the past 5-10 years a handful of companies have emerged from Asia but for the most part we trust stopping to only a handful of suppliers. Luckily for us, with the annual horsepower wars come some really great braking hardware directly from the factory. This continued improvement has left us with some extra options when it comes to brake upgrades for vehicles. The Audi RS5 is one of those vehicles that has been gifted with 8 piston ... read more

Everyone at Redline Speed Worx would like to thank the guys at Fourtitude.com for the coverage & writeup on part of our display at Waterfest 19! The term ‘water’ in the name WaterFest refers to the passing of generations. At one time you could find shows for air-cooled Volkswagens on any given weekend throughout the summer.

Everyone at Redline Speed Worx has been waiting for the privilege to do a complete vehicle build on the new Audi RS5. It looks like our requests have been answered! We've been slowly working with our customer on the build of his RS5, and we thought we would share now after a few of the upgrades have been completed, before we move onto the BIGGER items. With no expense spared on this beautiful RS5 the vehicle came to us fully loaded from the factory. One of the fine examples of this limited production RS5 is the massive carbon ceramic front braking upgrade over the stock 8 piston Brembo kit normally scene on this vehicle. Upon receipt of the vehicle, the owner did have a complete satin wrap installed on the vehicle. The color choice in our opinion couldn't have been better! ... read more
