    Congratulations to BenzBoost member @charliekay who is so close to the 9's in his supercharged W204 C63 AMG that he can taste it. He upgraded to the Weistec 3.0 liter Stage III twin screw blower and ran 10.22 @ 137.09 which was a considerable improvement from the 10.83 @ 129.22 he managed on the Stage II 2.3 liter blower. Now with different wheels and tires he shaved it down to 10.173 @ 139.18 on a 1.549 60 foot. Obviously a better launch than the previous 1.606 60 foot so the new tire setup is helping. He is just a hair away from the 9's but as @charliekay is an Australian member keep in mind the weather is not doing him any favors right now. In the winter we might see that elusive 9 second pass which is certainly impressive for a stock internal supercharged M156.

    I'm looking at the AMS Alpha 7 and Alpha 9. The 7 keeps the stock turbos, is a couple thousand dollars cheaper and claims a 2.85 0-60 vice the 3.3 on the Alpha 9 which has upgraded turbos and costs more. What am I missing here? Why would someone get the Alpha 9 instead of the Alpha 7? My apologies if I am just being ignorant or can't read well.

    The E60 M5 camera car in the video belongs to BimmerBoost member tjav8b. His car is no slouch in stock form thanks to the S85 5.0 liter V10 under the hood but his is not stock. It is boosted courtesy of a Vortech based supercharger kit meaning it is quite potent especially on the top end. He decided to take his car to a 1/2 mile race event in Florida where there was a variety of competition. Competition that included this CTS-V that suddenly just pulls away like the M5 is standing still. We do not know the modifications on the CTS-V. All we know is it is impressive to say the least. The CTS-V trapped over 170 on this run and the M5 managed 159 miles per hour. Thank you tjav8b for sharing the video and not caring about a win or loss.

    Direct quote: "Taking on BMWs M division is easier said than done, but Hyundai believes it has what it takes. Notably, the South Korean car maker has appointed Albert Biermann, the former chief engineer of BMW M, to lead its performance-oriented N sub-brand. Biermann has first-hand knowledge of what makes a M-badged BMW spectacular to drive, and he also knows how to build a Hyundai that can surpass or at least match the M4 in terms of performance and driving dynamics."

    This video is not being posted due to the cinematography. With no camera views from inside the cars we usually dismiss this stuff as junk. It is not hard to get a couple Go Pros these days and show clear HD video. However, the commentary of the butthurt AMG owner is glorious to behold. Which of these cars is faster stock for stock? The W205 C63 AMG S is both quicker and faster. However, as it is rear wheel drive it takes a bit more skill to launch. Need proof? A stock W205 C63 went 12.5 @ 119 in the 1/4 mile. A stock W205 C63 AMG S went 11.6 @ 120 on a better 60 foot. Almost a full second difference due to launch quality. A stock X5M will run low 12's at close to 115. You can look at a Dinan tuned example in the 1/4 mile (because it performs almost like stock anyway) here. If you ran the cars from a roll, the X5M would lose every single time. They are not running from a roll though and that means the traction advantage is with the all wheel drive 5000+ pound behemoth. The X5M in the first dig race gets the hit and wins easily. The second run has an even start and the X5M just edges ahead. That is the end of the racing and then the excuses begin to pour out from the AMG owner. First, he talks about how he put $50k down. Yet, he didn't spend any of that on drag tires or driving lessons which is where the money clearly needs to go. The AMG owner then asks for a 60-180 run. Seriously? You don't even know you have a 155 mph limiter on there? Plus 130 miles an hour is plenty to show who has the stronger top end. The AMG owner says in Germany a 1/4 mile doesn't mean anything. Well, even the Germans probably know you should know how to launch if you're going to run on the street from a dig against an all wheel drive car. Plus the 1/4 mile specs should tell him his best race is a roll. He's using the German argument here (poorly) to say the car is designed for the Autobahn. The X5M is from a German company as well though so he's reaching for anything. The guys on the side of the X5M did not give him a roll race and said they wanted to run again but in a 1/4 mile. So, they ran their race and won. The C63 guy says he has an E63 on order after that. Good, because it looks like he needs the all wheel drive of the E63 to mask his driving and his bullshit. Lulz

    This should not be a shocker as Hennessey often takes credit for the work of others. Don't believe it? Hennessey patted himself on the back for his HPE700 Mustang GT supercharger system when it is really Whipple's blower and design. Just like how the Hennessey HPE600 AMG GT S tune is really Eurocharged's tune. Jerry Thorton at Eurocharged did the custom dyno tune. Hennessey will essentially resell the $2499 Eurocharged M178 tune at a premium. Why bother with paying for the Hennessey name when you can go straight to the source? Anyone?

    Some good runs here but unfortunately all of the cars do not run each other. The camera car is a Paxton Blown Mustang 5.0 GT Coyote with roughly 700 horsepower. It captures the action as the cars go at it on the highway. The first run is the 700 horsepower STI vs. what is said to be an 800 horsepower Mazdaspeed 3. We would love to know the mods on the Mazda as it is fast! Very, very fast. It makes easy work of the STI from a 60 mph roll the STI itself being no slouch. They go at it again and the second time the STI gets a better start and holds off the Mazda. The STI then goes up against the Mustang camera car. The camera work is poor on this run but the Mustang gets the hit and holds off the STI. Next up is the Mustang and the C63 AMG and they do several runs. The first run has the Mustang jump and it takes an easy lead which it holds. The C63 gets a much better start in the second run and opens a quick lead thanks to the twin screw torque and holds it up top thanks to the M156 top end. The final run between the Mustang and the C63 again has a quick count with the Mustang getting on the throttle first. It is a good race between the two but the GT edges slightly up top. We wish we had more detailed specs on the cars but good runs nevertheless. Edit Mazdaspeed 3 specs: built 2.3 built head PTE6466 e85 lots of boost

    This is one of the hardest things I have had to do but my baby is up for sale. I'm selling in order to be able to help my parents financially. I am in Canada (Ottawa Ontario) but have sold cars to buyers in the US before and it is a very easy process. This car is originally a US car and was sold new from Champion Porsche if I remember correctly. I am a very honest seller andwill provide all the information I can. I have owned the car for about 4trouble free years. Car has been VERY reliable. It is a rare Slate Gray Metallic color and is gorgeous!!!! I bought the car stock and havemade the following modifications: K24/20G Billet Turbos 1.2bar tune (can be increased totake advantage of the K24/20G turbos) 70lbs/hr injectors 1.0bar Waste Gates Stage 3 Clutch Masters Clutch Replica GT2 rear deck Lid Stock modified exhuast (2 of the 4 cats removed and bypass mod done) 20" wheels Just before storingit for the winter I did the following maintenance... Changed Front Diff Fluid Changed Transmission Fluid New Spark Plugs New OEM Coils New Air Filter New OEM MAF Here is all the infoa buyer would want to know... The car has a couple of minor incedents (both prior to me owning it). The first was VERY slight damage to I think the front fender (no dent just ascratch that required painting) and the second was a minor hit from the rear. Iwas shown pictures and essentially there were scrapes on the rear bumperettes,the right rear tail light was cracked and the bottom right corner of the hatchwas bent in a bit (not an issue given it now has the GT2 style decklid althoughyou couldnt tell on the stock decklid anyway). The rear bumper wasnt even damaged and needed no paintrepair. The claim was higher than the work because they pulled some insurancecrap to make money. I only learnt this after I bought it and had the carchecked out when I found out about it and everything checked out. Last year I had the car painted due to rock chips. Rather than just paint the hood Idecided to invest on painting the entire thing to make sure it looks perfect.The shop that did the work is known for doing high-end cars and I get all mytoys done by them. The headlights and front bumper have clear shield installed to protect them. I would givethe exterior a 9 out of 10. The Interior is infantastic condition as well. I would say 9 out of 10 as well. I wax the car everyyear and also clean and condition the interior leather once a year as well. I onlyclean/wash by hand and use high end rags, soap, wax, leather care, etc. The tires are 2summers old and still have lots of life on them. The car is always stored and parked indoors. I am asking $39,500 (USD) OBO. The buyer can either pick it up and take it over themselves or we can arrage for it to be shipped at the buyers expense of course. I have included exterior pics (some have the stock OEM decklid but as mentioned it was replaced with a GT2 style decklid), pic of the interior to show the condition, pic of the wheels and also pics of the paint to show the condition.

    I would like to point out the Andy does not communicate very well. My order has not been made how I asked. My emails were not replied to. When the emails were answered it was to say he will find out for me. But would not answer a simple question of has it been made and when will it ship. Even called a 3-4 of times but only left a message once. rang twice during working hours with no answer. I asked for an intercooler to be made with 3 inch pipes on boths sides with no bungs. I got an intercooler with bungs and 3 inch on one side and 2 inch on the other. I'm a pissed off customer. I already had a good ATM intercooler but wanted something more flowing for rb evos. I and paid $1800 au for this and he couldn't even reply to an email or make what i asked for. Your welds are very nice but it has the wrong size pipe on it!!!!!!!!!

    Things have changed a bit regarding rally racing spectators. Why? Well, take a look at the gif posted below and you will understand why. Back in the legendary 80's Group B days as well as other rally classes drivers would have to contend not only with the elements but spectators as well. This speaks for itself.

    This is a great race to see with the two previous generation German rivals duking it out with some boost. The C63 AMG belongs to BoostAddict member @gzim335. You likely know the car as it was involved in a controversial race against an F82 M4 with upgraded S55 turbos. The C63 M156 V8 equipped with a Weistec Stage III 3.0 liter twin screw is fast. We know that and an example recently ran 10.1 @ 139 in the 1/4 mile. We do not know which AA supercharger kit is on the E92 M3. It is running meth and higher boost so it is possibly a Level III but hopefully clarification on that will come from the participants. What is clear is that on the stock internals the M156 V8 has an advantage over the S65 V8 on stock internals which is not surprising. The torque certainly pays dividends here as the C63 opens up just enough of a lead to pass the M3 before running into traffic at high speed. While the video is very much appreciated it goes to show how quickly one runs out of space at these speeds and power levels. Hopefully we can see a rematch with multiple runs on open road so it is safer for all involved and nobody has to let off to avoid an accident.
