    If you track your car or launch hard on the dragstrip with big power you put tremendous stress on the driveline including the driveshaft. The factory BMW E9X M3 S65 V8 driveshaft is not made out of carbon fiber and if it gives it can certainly be a dangerous situation. Driveshafts giving way on the strip is not a new topic but they can come up through the cabin especially if a driveshaft loop is not installed. Well, with the MFactory carbon fiber driveshaft not only do you get a safety benefit but you get a much stronger piece than the factory driveshaft. Here is the description from MFactory: This is a dry carbon fiber piece with 5500 newton meters of capability. That means 4056 lb-ft or in other words whatever any E9X M3 in the world can throw at it. BimmerBoost.com will putting it to the test. They are currently looking for testers which get a discount from $1499.95 retail which is a very reasonable price for what you get. Just to share personal experience, this driveshaft was ordered for the BimmerBoost project E92 M3 DCT and somehow arrived in two days. The insanely quick shipping speed was mind blowing. Here are photos of the unboxing of the driveshaft: It certainly looks and feels like a stout piece and certainly is well packaged. The real test of course will be on a car and MFactory is still looking for testers. If you want to get in at tester pricing, contact @MFactory on the forum.

    The F90 generation M5 is going to be very exciting. Why? Because BMW promises to drop weight significantly this time (we'll see about that) despite adding all wheel drive. We will be lucky if they get close to the current generation F10 M5 in weight considering the added mass from xDrive system. They intend to extensively use carbon fiber and CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) for this reason. With over 600 horsepower from a twin turbo V8, a dual clutch transmission, and all wheel drive you can expect the F90 to be a beast in a straight line. The M5 is supposed to be an all around car though and this video shows it hustling around the 'Ring. It looks like the tires are crying 'understeer' out loud at times but it looks fairly rapid and that it is being pushed hard. Maybe the limp mode issues of the past model will be addressed? Maybe it will not be out of place on a track? We'll have to wait and see.

    You might recognize this particular Ferrari 488 GTB. This car was tuned a few months back by Powerhaus Performance who managed to massage some very nice gains out of the new twin 3.9 liter turbocharged Ferrari F154 CB engine. Power and performance are one thing but stunningly good looks are another part of the Ferrari experience. For some, getting looks is the entire Ferrari experience. It's safe to say this 488 will turn heads as the rose gold wheels are definitely attention grabbing but at the same time not ostentatious. It works. What do you think?

    Just an ECU flash and some meth to run 10's? Yep. This of course is a 4Matic model which explains the nice launch on street tires. The 60 foot is a respectable 1.761 and the torque down low certainly helps get the the heavy 4500+ pound Mercedes E63 off the line. How much torque? 726-730 lb-ft at the wheels. Again, keep in mind this car has nothing more than an ECU flash dyno tune from Precision Tuning and an AEM meth kit spraying 50/50 water-meth. If the owner wants that trap speed to go up he will need some bolt ons and might want to look into some modified turbochargers. Regardless, talk about a mean car to run into at a stoplight. <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-version="7" style=" background:#FFF; border:0; border-radius:3px; box-shadow:0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width:658px; padding:0; width:99.375%; width:-webkit-calc(100% - 2px); width:calc(100% - 2px);"><div style="padding:8px;"> <div style=" background:#F8F8F8; line-height:0; margin-top:40px; padding:50.0% 0; text-align:center; width:100%;"> <div style=" background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAACwAAAAsCAMAAAApWqozAAAABGdBTUEAALGPC/xhBQAAAAFzUkdCAK7OHOkAAAAMUExURczMzPf399fX1+bm5mzY9AMAAADiSURBVDjLvZXbEsMgCES5/P8/t9FuRVCRmU73JWlzosgSIIZURCjo/ad+EQJJB4Hv8BFt+IDpQoCx1wjOSBFhh2XssxEIYn3ulI/6MNReE07UIWJEv8UEOWDS88LY97kqyTliJKKtuYBbruAyVh5wOHiXmpi5we58Ek028czwyuQdLKPG1Bkb4NnM+VeAnfHqn1k4+GPT6uGQcvu2h2OVuIf/gWUFyy8OWEpdyZSa3aVCqpVoVvzZZ2VTnn2wU8qzVjDDetO90GSy9mVLqtgYSy231MxrY6I2gGqjrTY0L8fxCxfCBbhWrsYYAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC); display:block; height:44px; margin:0 auto -44px; position:relative; top:-22px; width:44px;"></div></div><p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;"><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BJg8QgNg05v/" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px; text-decoration:none;" target="_blank">A video posted by Kevin Baldi (@kevin_doesnt_lift)</a> on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2016-08-25T02:21:02+00:00">Aug 24, 2016 at 7:21pm PDT</time></p></div></blockquote> <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>

    Do you mean weight to power? If the Porsche has the higher power to weight ratio, it should win.
