    Very cool race to see here and the S55 ECU flash tuned BMW F80 M3 is going up against very stout competition in the McLaren 650S. To give you an idea of how capable the 650S a BoostAddict member took his stock MP4-12C to the strip which is slightly less powerful and ran 10.6 @ 135. The 650S is a very fast car and considerably lighter than the F80 M3. Even in stock form it should be favored over a bolt on tuned M3. We do not know the full specs for the M3 here but it has an ECU flash and assume downpipes along with ethanol, meth, or race fuel. Are the turbos upgraded? It sure seems like it. The M3 wins the first race. It pulls as the race goes on which just shouldn't happen. The second race however has the 650S get a better launch and it destroys the M3. The slip doesn't reflect the second result as it shows the M3 as trapping higher and being close to even running 10.5 as well: Where is the second slip where the 650S dominates? Conveniently left out.

    N54: -Vargas stage 1's with inlets and outlets and the billet 6x6 wheel -20 psi -e50 mix fuel (fuel-it stage 2 lpfp) -50 shot of nitrous, wet Can that setup be run with the BMS e85 BEF or is a safer one needed (i.e. Retard 2 degrees of timing)

    This is pretty crazy and just goes to show just how good the 991.2 generation Carrera models are. Who would have ever thought a Carrera S would top a 911 GT3 or a Turbo S around the track? Well, it happened as the latest Big Willow laptimes from MotorTrend show us. Of course, different conditions on different days play a factor but a Carrera S beating not only a 911 Turbo S but the 911 (991) GT3 as well around the track is simply incredible. So we established the Carrera S is an awesome performance value but look at the AMG GT S and and the Corvette Grand Sport. The Corvette is quicker than either for less money. The AMG GT S just edges the Carrera S which is impressive considering the Mercedes is a front engine layout that weighs more. Having a more powerful and larger engine doesn't hurt. The C7 Z06 remains the car to beat with the Huracan right on its tail. It is interesting to note that the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo edition does very well on a smaller track like Big Willow yet the 2017 standard edition GT-R at Laguna Seca trails the Carrera S. The Nismo package appears to make quite the difference.

    An independent drag race between two enthusiast ars that directly compete in the same segment is something we definitely like to see. Both vehicles are turbocharged and direct injected six cylinder models but the ATS-V has a larger 3.6 liter LT4 V6 and the M3 utilizes the 3.0 liter S55 I6. The heavier Cadillac (by roughly 300 pounds) gets off the line much better than the M3. The ATS-V appears to be an automatic example. The M3 looks to be running it down but seems to get off the gas early. The M3 runs 11.604 @ 105.89 and the ATS-V runs 11.579 @ 119.82. The ATS-V has a tune but is on stock tires. We do not know if the M3 is tuned or not but it was on drag radials.

    Had a blast this season being part of BMS family. As you may know I have blown my motor a couple months ago so it has been down. Terry was kind enough to let me race his 2016 Z06 as a benchmark ;). Here are some words from Terry himself. "Hey guys, Just arrived back from the arduous trek to and from Coalinga for shift sector. Great event as always, but driving 400 miles always exhausts me. Especially with no interior sound deadening. :lol We had 5 cars out today and everyone ran pretty well. I don't think we had a single misfire, check engine light, limp mode, or headache in the group. :drinking: I ran our 2008 135i for the first time since doing the MT swap and adding the roll cage and was happy with its performance. There are a few things I need to adjust for next time, namely the gearing. More on that later. Since it's a PITA to launch a single turbo I decided to just do rolling runs from 3rd gear at the cones. So it works out to around 0.4ths of a mile. Unfortunately most people went the full 0.5ths of a mile so my traps won't really be comparable. Next time I'll try some launches there. I also had to limit boost to 23psi in 3rd. I started at low boost and worked my way up as I got more comfortable with the new setup. Best trap was 167.2mph basically hitting the 7200rpm rev limiter in 5th with the 3.15 gears. I really wish the car had 3.08s... =/ ACF is working on a new stronger/better diff arrangement with (I think) an 8.8 carrier so I'll just wait for that to swap down to 3.02 gears or something. Anyway the trap was good enough for 2nd place in the BMW/AMG class, second only to our very own Ram who ran 172mph with his JB4 & PURE turbo tuned M5. :burnrubber: Attached is a break down of my runs and run notes for each. Towards the last run or two I was basically maxing out the turbo. Given the DA it didn't want to make anymore than around 29psi. :brokenheart: On the plus side, it did manage a 5.9 60-130 in the heat. Plans for a larger turbo are also in the works. Ando raced our 340i B58 sporting a JB4, PURE S1 turbo, and meth, and ran a best of 146.5mph. Which for the day turned out to be pretty impressive. Can't wait to see his videos. Jon raced our 2015 M5 with JB4, meth, and BMS intake, and ran a best of 160.6mph. Jason raced our 2015 M3 with JB4, meth, PURE S2 turbos, BMS intake, BMS catback, and ran a best of 162.8mph. Car was run at 30psi and struggled with traction but otherwise flawless all day. Finally Payam sported my 2016 Z06 since his car is apart right now. It's 100% stock and was run on ~93 octane. I think it ran a best of 147mph. We expected a little more but those stupid superchargers heat soak like crazy sitting in the staging lanes. :brokenheart: Anyway I saw everyone took a ton of photos and videos. You'll start seeing those show up in this thread as everyone gets home and has time to upload them. :happy Was also happy to see several customers out there running well. Feel free to post your results/vids/photos in this thread! :)" Some videos I managed to get:

    I bought a wedge performance dp fix a couple weeks ago, but ended up not needing it. This is for the n54 motor. It is brand new unused (still wrapped). $65 shipped. PM me if you are interested.

    The AMG GT was designed with the Porsche 911 in its cross hairs. It certainly offers quite a bit of value compared to the 911 range which is a bit overpriced. The pricing between the AMG GT and 911 C4S is basically a wash and the difference depends on options. The AMG GT does offer a motor a liter larger and with eight cylinders. It has more power and torque but sends it to the rear wheels. It is slightly heavier as well. Both have dual clutch transmissions. The C4S is all wheel drive and that is the entire difference here. From a stop, the AMG GT just can not compete with the 911's launch. It would be nice to see this race run from a roll but the people at Motorsport Magazine don't seem to know how to do that. 911 C4S Engine : flat 6 biturbo Displacement : 2 981 cm3 Power : 420 PS Weight : 1 510 kg AMG GT Engine : V8 biturbo Displacement : 3 982 cm3 Power : 462 PS Weight : 1 540 kg
