    Interesting races here showing supercharged M3's going up against each other as well as a Ventura Motorsport Comp Turbo 6465 top mount 335i. The three M3's feature superchargers with the white 6-speed E92 M3 featuring the Active Autowerke Level III supercharger kit and the other two M3's running Gintani superchargers. Although the 335i has the most power and torque of the group, the M3's show just how quick they are at speed. There is more to a race than just peak figures as the shift speed, gearing, area under the curve, and redline of the M3's work to their advantage on the highway. The following is in the words of Ventura Motorsports and the owner of the 335i: Had a great time last night meeting some new people in Mexico. It was an impromptu meet so I didn't get to take any footage from my car :(. We are going to set something up in the next couple of weeks. I'll be ready with mounts and cameras etc. White e92 M3 6speed Active Autowerke level 3 SC kit Laguna Seca e92 M3 6speed Gintani Stage 2+ Red e92 M3 DCT Gintani Stage 2+ All M3s are running 91 octane and Meth. I am running e40 blend 100% Meth and Map 7 23 psi. They are very, very quick. Surprised me more than I thought to be honest. Everytime we started second gear rolls, they would get a good jump and I would play catch up. It would be hard for me to catch up though. 3rd gear rolls though I would move out pretty well, once I hit 4th gear It was over. Everyone seemed to be in the 580-600whp region. I dynoed 627 whp on Map 7 with this trim. That flatline shift bog @aflatau really really hurts, it's not even funny. I've notice if I switch at 6800 rpm, it does not bog. I will have to do more testing. First and second race is Second gear roll. Red Vs White M3 Third race is Second gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. Spun pretty hard and once I hit third gear I guess it kicked me into map 4 Fourth race is second gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. I didn't realize I was kicked down to map 4 in this race lol so yea 12 psi run. Fifth race is third gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. Map 7 23 psi Good run here. Last race is all of us, second gear roll just for fun lol. There are more runs and vids from the other guys. I wish I had more to post up. Looked like the level 3 AA kit seemed to be the fastest of them all. In the end, we all had a blast. Nobody cared who's car was the fastest. I can't wait to hang out with these guys again.

    Saw this guy at the mall and I couldn't help myself. He was so playful and smart I had to have him. Very calm personality too, he quietly chills and likes to explore but never strays far. Going to be a bitch to potty train I can see but what should I name him? Been calling him tank for now.

    Dodson is tackling the BMW DCT market and is set to release a bevy of upgrade parts for the BMW DCT transmission including clutch pack shims, two different type of clutch kits, frictions plates, and associated hardware. These upgrades will be available for every BMW with the DCT transmission. Yes, that means the E9X M3 and E9X 335 models. It also means the new F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6 models. These models all use a variant of a Getrag DCT box. The physical proportions are the same but Getrag obviously has modified the unit over the years for greater torque capability going from the naturally aspirated E9X M3 to the V8 twin turbo F10 M5. These Dodson parts will have even greater capability with two clutch sets currently listed one for 800 lb-ft of torque and the second for over 800 lb-ft. BimmerBoost will be testing out some of these Dodson parts in the BimmerBoost.com M3. Will Dodson succeed where SSP Performance failed? We will find out shortly but considering Dodson's stellar reputation it certainly looks like it. Pricing has yet to be announced but as soon as the parts are officially available BimmerBoost will of course bring you the details.

    APR's turbo upgrade package for the Audi TT-RS 2.5 inline-5 TFSI is very potent. The Garrett GTX3567R turbo at the heart of the upgrade is capable of producing over 600 wheel horsepower on the TT-RS. The TT-RS in the video is stated to have somewhere in the 650 all wheel horsepower range and considering the outcome of these two races there is no reason to doubt the output. The first run is against an APR Stage III supercharged B7 RS4. The RS4 is stated to be in the low 600 wheel horsepower range. Keep in mind the 4.2 liter FSI V8 is running an Eaton TVS supercharger kit so it is no slouch. The race between the two cars is close but the TT-RS has the quicker elapsed time and also traps higher at 145.68 to 143.23 for the RS4. The second run is against an HPF turbocharged E46 M3 with a 6-speed manual transmission. It is stated to be making over 600 wheel horsepower. The TT-RS makes fairly easy work of it running a 148.86 trap speed to the E46 M3 140.29. Keep in mind comparing trap speeds in roll on races is difficult due to there not being a uniform starting speed. Regardless, the TT-RS with the APR Stage III kit performs impressively.

    Designing headers for the most recent naturally aspirated M engines is not easy work. Cars like the E60 M5 and E63 M6 using the high revving 5.0 liter S85 V10 already put out over 100 horsepower per liter from the factory. BMW M knows what they are doing and their header designs are very good to begin with. It is of course possible to improve on their production pieces which must meet emission and production cost restrictions but someone must really know what they are doing. Supersprint knows what they are doing. They recently posted a comparison of their S85 V10 header design to an unnamed competitor. We wish they named the competitor but it is understandable that by doing so it could be misinterpreted as unprofessional or taking direct shots. Check out their design comparison and comments below. Additionally, take a look at the Evolve Automotive S85 V10 headers to compare and Evolve's explanation of their engineering choices in their design. Supersprint does not provide as much data as Evolve regarding their S85 V10 header performance. SuperSprint: Recently there have been some requests and comparisons between our M5 E60/61 / M6 E63/64 V10 headers and what our competitors are offering. So here's a visual comparison between our 789301 and an example of what's on the market. Here's our 789301. Pipe routing and collector details. The primary pipes are separated to allow different thermal expansion without mechanical stress. The spring loaded flange and sealing rings avoid leaks. The perfectly smooth 5 into 1 collectors merge the gas glows in a linear, optimal way Here's a competitor's headers set. It's a 4 into 1 design adapted to a 5 cylinder engine, with the 5th pipe plugged in the middle of the collector. All the pipes are welded toghether, which can cause failure of the welding with heat. This can cause an expensive repair job! Also notice the pipe routing is not optimal. And here's the detail of the competitor's manifold collector, inside. The pipes stop abruptly, no smooth merging, a lot of flow interference and an irregular shaped centre hole. For comparison here's a close up of our 5 into 1 collector with the centre piramidal diffuser that merge the flows in a linear and efficient way into the main outlet. A different view, where you can see the spring loaded flange that keeps the sealing rings (made in graphite and pressed metal mesh) into place, to avoid leaks. They are also cheaply and quickly replacable!

    This is a beatdown. Protomotive builds some spectacularly fast 996 Turbos but there are also some spectacularly fast Nissan GTR's out there. This Topspeed built 4.4 liter Alpha 12 certainly qualifies. Just to give you a sensation of how bit the difference between the cars is the GTR gives the two 996 Turbos (the yellow one is the claimed 1200+ horsepower Protomotive car) a head start and the hit yet runs them down and passes them with ease. The sensation of speed conveyed by the video is astonishing. The GTR makes the two 996 Turbos looks like they are moving in slow motion. Is the Protomotive car really putting out 1200+? Or is the GTR just that much damn faster?

    Found this somewhere familiar... Poster says the m4 has 2 passengers seems to pull well against c7 but Ive beaten 5.0s with more mods with stockers maxed a bit worse.. so I am not sure what to think there.

    For those who don't know Troy Jeup, he's an M5Board vendor and sources engines/transmissions for E60 M5 and E63 M6s. Here's a seller feedback regarding two members who bought engines from him, basically he's a crook and stay as far away from him as you can: http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60-m5-e61-m5-touring-discussion/303241-troy-jeup-sales-feedback.html

    There was a total of 3 races. The first race was a wash due to him honking and my passenger attempting to count to 3. The second race was good and had a clean start and the third race also was good and had a clean start. The third race was shot from a chase vehicle. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYD93y8W46U

    The Tesla Model S is surprisingly quick from a stop. We have seen the car take down some formidable German performance cars including an F10 M5 and a W212 M157 E63 AMG in a drag race. It certainly is not unbeatable as an E63 on the drag strip showed trouncing the Tesla. You will notice a common theme in all Tesla races and that is that they are from a stop and that the shorter they are the more they favor the Tesla. Top end goes to traditional gasoline motors but what the Tesla Model S shows is that from a stop an electric car is very potent. Just up to a point as the 335i in the video shows giving the 'ricer flyby' at the end. Considering this is a modified 335i with a JB4 tune Tesla shows that not only is strong electric performance possible it is the future.
