Tune for Road Racing A4???

Anyone have any sort of tune that can be done for an A4 to road race?? My main issues so far are throttle response and avoiding shifting while throttling through turns(leading to loss of grip/spin out)

Just curious...

I run a built 4l65e with a transgo shift kit. A tune will also help when done right.

I manually shift 1-2-3; and modified my shifter so I can downshift with out hitting the button.

You can adjust the shift points based on speed but if you leave it in drive, it's still gonna be somewhat unpredictable. I forgot my shift point speed the other day, it shifted to 1st at 30 and went sideways. Setting it up to manually shift is the only real control.
