Racing Teams Rave About Snipptec
I have had the Snipptec systems installed in my vehicle for quite some time. What I find most remarkable, is the improved pulling power of the engine. The engine has more power across the entire rpm range. Everything seems more harmonic and feels like one unit. Fuel consumption has gone down as well. I’m convinced and can only recommend it!
Initially, I had an extremely skeptical attitude towards the Snipptec products. My skepticism only increased, once they showed me with which “voodoo products” they were claiming to achieve the performance improvements. Well, my comment after thoroughly testing the Snipptec system was “My vehicle (Audi Q7, 3.0 TDI) now has the dynamic of an ICE [Inter City Express; Germany’s high speed train], and now only uses 8.5liters/100km … and I don’t always drive slowly!
My race engineer first confronted me with the Snipptec system during the 2014 Eifel race on the Nürburgring. We went through our standard program of events and drove the first training as usual [without the Snipptec system]. However, after the first training, my race engineer showed up with the Snipptec system components. Discussions and question marks ensued when he proceeded to install them into my RSR. The time from the second training was set. The clock showed a lap time improvement that I better don’t mention here. What was particularly “crazy’”, was the impact the chassis components of the system had on grip. And the steering power of the front axle increased so much, that it was nearly impossible for me to hold on to the steering wheel of my RSR without power steering.
Initially, I was very skeptical about the Snipptec system. However, the system convinced me as soon as we implemented the first test with our race car. The significantly improved reaction time, the increased torque across the entire rpm range and the 10% fuel savings opened completely new doors for us from a strategic point of view. One can now drive the previously weak engine in an entirely different rpm range. The engine, which is still in its factory sealed state, is noticeably quieter, muffled, and runs cleaner and unobstructed. A special thanks to the guys from Snipptec who, through their down to earth and friendly cooperation, allow for further fine-tuning of the system. In addition, they contributed to our overall victory of the 2013 VLN. Thank you!
My initial contact with the Snipptec system was through Frikadelli Racing. For the first race, we initially tested the engine optimization during the free practice session. This immediately excited me, as the engine acceleration improved noticeably. It took a little while before we were able to determine the right setup for the chassis. However, once we had determined the right setup, we immediately noticed a significant improvement of the grip level. It is interesting how even the smallest modification in the installation of the Snipptec system will significantly change the vehicle dynamics.
I find it fascinating that Snipptec is able to adjust the hardness of the chassis without touching a single screw. I’m completely convinced.
I first heard of Snipptec at the end of 2014 through my team at the time, “Black Falcon”. As the current “Black Falcon Junior”, I was supposed the test the Snipptec system during a VLN race on behalf of the Black Falcon team. The changes in the chassis were already very impressive and I could immediately notice an improvement in the [tire] grip. What I found interesting was the change in the system over several laps. From the first lap, I noticed an improvement in the initial stroke steering. The grip level on the front axis improved with increasing lap counts, so that the typical understeering on the Grand Prix track, particularly in the area of the Mercedes Arena, never occurred. I was thus able to quickly generate a few tens of a seconds in savings, and significantly improve my lap time.
Snipptec introduced themselves to us in 2014 as a potential new sponsor for us in the Red Bull Air Race. I initially viewed the Snipptec guys and their unusual products with great skepticism. However, their products demonstrated such a noticeable difference on Matthias’ plane and my vehicle, that we immediately invited them to Las Vegas to support our next race. We ended up getting on the winner’s podium in Las Vegas, so were more than satisfied. Great work guys and thank you for your support!
