Convert 98 A4 to RWD

Before anyone tells me to search, I've tried.

I should be picking up my first audi ever. After driving my friend's Audi. I'm getting rid of my 240sx.

I'm curious what would it take to convert this Car to RWD, if anyone knows. I wouldn't be looking to do this right away. But after the purchase of a 2nd A4 for daily driving haha.

It is a Quattro, but will the drive train/differential/axels handle 300+whp?

Good idea about going with the a4, but why did you choose the a4 to drift with. I'm not saying its a bad idea to go drifting with it but i don't think there are many if at all any out there. Why did you get rid of your 240, because i was seriously thinking of getting one in a couple years. But good luck with your project.

I wouldn't disable the all wheel drive at all... I know it can be kind of counterproductive with your drifting, but if you get enough real torque to the wheels, it doesn't matter how many wheels are driving your car... I use my evo 385whp for drifting and it does just fine sideways, and I'll tell you at track days, there is more people around my (all wheel drive) drift car than anyone elses, this side of the WORK teams. Just do it, balls to the wall. All wheel drive is the way to go!!! And Quattro has the best AWD on the Planet.

what is the split (front/rear ratio) on the A4 quattro? ANd reliably speaking what can I pump out of the 1.8t?

Curious to how well a 4th gear drift would work in AWD too.
