    Well, holy crap! 8's out of the box? A 250 mph top speed? That is not all. The new Tesla roadster is said to hit 60 in 1.9 seconds and it will hit 100 miles per hour in 4.2 seconds. Those numbers are so mind numbingly fast please excuse us for being skeptical. When will it hit the market? Apparently it is being positioned as a 2020 model year car. The battery capacity is said to be good for 630 miles. Three motors will supply over 7,000 lb-ft of torque. It will start at $200,000 which for the numbers Tesla is quoting is well worth the money. Hell, it's worth double. It is going to be very hard to argue against the new Tesla Roadster if it delivers as advertised. The only downside will likely be the heft.

    So i recently came accross this https://www.hsd-il.com/ website and noticed they use stainless steel to make some really cheap downpipes, unfortuneatly i couldn't find any AMG downpipes there but i found some of theirs listed on Ebay (for AMG). So i contacted them to see what's up and they said they're working on their website and will have it listed. They seem to be legit at my glance but i haven't seen reviews on them, anyone with any experience with HSD-IL?

    http://www.burgertuning.com/gps_performance_meter.html We've been involved in the testing of a nifty new product called Dragy. It's a small high speed GPS device that interfaces with your phone or mobile device via BlueTooth and allows you to accurately compute performance metrics like 0-60, 1/4 mile & trap speed, 60-130mph, 100-200kmh, etc. The resulting run files compute and validate slope, and spit out in a little graphic ready to analyze, share, etc. You charge it using a mini-USB port, with the charge lasting a few days (it only wakes up when connected to app), and then throw it on the dash and open the app when you want to start recording runs. It's magnetic so there are slicker mounting options available, but I haven't found them necessary on our test cars. I just throw it up in the corner of the windshield. We tested them at the latest Shift Sector and No Fly Zone 1/2 mile events and were very pleased with the accuracy and flexibility of the system. A few screen shots from my testing below. There are a few thousand in use in Asia with great success and we're helping introduce it to the English speaking market. The free Dragy app will be posted to the play store and apple store within a few days. If you happen to get the device before the app is posted just email us and we can send a link for it. Anyway much more info to follow, including their app based tuner leader board and other slick features, but I know you guys are going to love this thing. Wanted to make a comparison video but right now its Dragy 1, VBOX 0 Attached Images

    The McLaren 720S is absurdly fast. Watching it destroy everything it runs is starting to get a bit boring. It needs some stout competition. A heads/cam Viper certainly is stout but this is an ACR which is built for the track and has a ton of downforce. That rear wing is creating drag that is not helping in a roll race. Furthermore, even with upgraded heads, a tune, exhaust, and an aggressive cam this naturally aspirated Viper is making less power and torque than the stock 720S. Throw in that the Viper has a manual and you get the result you see here. It's time for the 720S to start going up against stronger competition.

    Considering going the water/meth route. Where do you guys buy your meth? Do you buy it pre-mixed? How long does it last for you? I know it depends on tank size just ballparking it.
