    Car forums are a dirty business. Or at least, they can be. In MBWorld's case, dirty hardly covers it. This is the same forum that had such extreme corruption in the past regarding EVOSPORT it led to the rise of BenzBoost.com. Some things never change. MBWorld is deleting threads regarding the Dime Racing fiasco. Don't take our word for it. The owner of the most recent Dime Racing Huracan problem car tried to go on MBWorld to warn AMG owners of doing business with Dime. He was quickly silenced: Now why would a forum silence someone who is sharing their horror story with a tuner in order to spare others from the same fate? What is the point of forums? Well, that is where things get tricky. MBWorld isn't the only forum that has vendors try to pull strings to keep negative stories off the site. Tony Vargas of Vargas Turbocharger Technologies infamy recently tried the same thing here only to be to told the thread would not be deleted. This is what some of the shady vendors do. They threaten to pull sponsorship unless negative threads are deleted. MBWorld is owned by Internet Brands which makes $100 million dollars a year. They can afford to show a vendor the door. The fact they do not highlights just how bad the situation is. From @Z-Tuned: "Sticky - just an FYI, MBWorld has been deleting posts about this on their forums and censoring members who talk about it because they are being paid by Dime through advertising. They're claiming there are "two sides to every story", but I find this infuriating. https://mbworld.org/forums/c63-c63s-...d-removed.html Having gone through a lengthy legal battle myself with an Audi/VW tuner many years ago, I can relate to the pain of being screwed by a shop during a big money build. MBWorld is already basically a dead forum, but the fact that they continue to censor members about Dime's fraud is disgusting." It is exemplified by corrupt moderators who often will favor a vendor for free parts or simply to score brownie points. The moderators are not paid. To cover up serious problems with a tuner in order to remain in an unpaid position to abuse power on internet forums is pathetic. What kind of grown ass man does that? Well, a moderator by the name of nlpamg or Philip Nulud cares so much about his token moderator position MBWorld users tell BoostAddict he is allegedly willing to help remove negative Dime posts: There are plenty of Dime horror stories that have been deleted and covered up. This is only the latest. If someone ends up losing tens of thousands of dollars due to this shouldn't a forum or moderator potentially engaging in a coverup be liable to a certain degree? BoostAddict will not cover this story up. We stand with Brian McLevis and others that have been taken advantage of by Dime Racing. MBWorld should be ashamed.

    What's the benefit of setting lower boost targets at low rpm than the max boost, like 10psi at 2000 and 14psi (max) at 4000rpm? I get reducing boost at high rpm for efficiency with small turbos, but not at low rpm.

    I have been buying more on the dips but still haven't sold any...I was very close to selling on the last $400 run (I even posted on here I was thinking about it) but haven't pulled the trigger. When its on the upswing its always hard for me to not be optimistic thinking this is the time it will go even higher! Until it dips back down...lol
