Could you all please go out and jump into your Beasts and proceed to put your car in tip mode.. then when safe, floor it until it shifts to second gear on it own and tell me what RPM your tranny shifts to second gear at?

and even shifts to 2nd if you lift .. Lats week it was shifting at 6600+ rpm..
It is looking like the cause of my engine problems might not actually be the engine.. Audi has sent one of their top dogs to work on my car and he has found some readings that suggest it might be the transmission that is overheating for some reason to be determined .. the oil gets too hot in the tranny under normal use and the TCU is telling the ECU to cut power to protect the tranny. This explains why the boost would cut out even tho the temps were normal.. Up until now we have been focusing on the motor.. it looks like it may have been the trans all along.. They still are evaluating and deciding what to do.. but at least we have finally identfied the culprit.. now fixing it is another story.. The main relief here is that the Audi people I have been dealing with now know I'm not crazy and the expert described exactly the symptoms he felt after driving it just like I explained to my SM. I am vindicated..

will be a different story...hopefully they will make you whole quickly given that youve been put through a ****storm with your car -- Audi does get the "benefit" of fixing your beast for future reference to help others with the same potential problem...let us know what caused the temp increase -- I believe the subject has been discussed both here and on RS6.com...many would be interested as the tranny seems to be the "weak link" in the car....good luck!!!

and pushed her hard, and it up shifts just shy of the red line, at close to 7000 RPM.
