Why are Audis so fast?

I'm a normie visiting this board, I understand nothing about cars' performance or customization.
But I like watching drag races on YouTube (specially sleepers vs supercars) and I noticed one of the brands that wins the races almost everytime are Audis. Is there any explanation for this? Why are Audis better than, let's say, a BMW and a Mercedes?

      Not as much as you think. You have to drop the clutch at like 6k to take advantage of AWD, and then you're asking to destroy your clutch, diff, axles etc. I guess these are automatic with launch control though.
      AWD slows you down at everything other than launching from a stop due to the added weight and drivetrain losses.
      t. Subaru driver 10+ years, RWD is better.

          Quarter mile times are a lot more than just a quick launch

        the daza engine is a very good platform + awd on everything

        >subaru driver
        >slows you down at everything
        of course a subie owner would know
        In the modern era where unsprung weight is at an all time low with plastic, aluminum, and composites everywhere, awd has now become the king with basically everything. You cannot argue about added weight and complexity when even rwd coupes weigh 3500 minimum now. A g37x only weighs 200lbs over a normal g37. The only thing you could argue awd doesn't help with is lateral g's, since throttle doesn't quite apply, though having a load on all tires at all times doesn't hurt grip at every other point. But other than that, you have more grip in every single instance of throttle application vs rwd.

          Awd is an advantage and it’s proven all the time. Even with a Compromsed set up like the UrQuattro it’s dominant. It was dominant today when the awd Ferrair and Toyota took advantage of the rain against the Cadillac and the Porsche despite the many screw ups by both the awd HyperCars.

        In some models, the software keeps track of how many times launch control has been used, if you go over the limit (iirc 100 times for some BMWs), it disables the launch control until you get a transmission rebuild.

      It is at the start but after 80mph or so it’s a weakness.

      Also the answer is all wheel drive but also Audi is ahead of most in terms of computer tech that has one brain doing brakes engine transmission and differential and traction control. They’re the best at it. Though this will change going forward because the core guys that built those systems are working for competition and also because EVs are making it irrelevant.

      M5 eats audis for breakfast.

      M5 AWD eats the front tires. It’s great for 1-2 laps and then you understeer like a b***h. Audi is unironically better. BMW should have stayed RWD.

        M5 is RWD. only drives the front tires if you turn on 4WD and even then only if the rear wheels slip.

          Not quite the case it has 3 modes. One is off one is ‘haldex’ mode and one is aggressive. Just leave it off unless it’s snowing is my strong advice. You can indeed do a better lap in aggressive but at what cost? The Audis and the X6M have a better diff set up for awd. The M5 is really RWD with the system tacked on so women will approve of it.

    hanging the engine ahead of the front axle + awd makes for a good launch machine. theyre all automatic though so no point

        Winning a drag race is an engineer's sport. They meticulously build the car, the driver can be a 50IQ monkey that knows how to keep the steering wheel straight.

      This, I'm an Audi owner and nothing they make has been even close to as fast as the g80 and f90 M3/M4/M5 for years aside from the brand new RS6/7 performance trim, which took like 5 years to match a car that came out in 2018. Even then probably still loses to the M5/M8 competition.
