    It's that time of year again folks, Fantasy Football! So, rules carry over from last year which means a 12 team league with a live draft. Last year buy in was $30 I believe. We will up it this year to make the league more serious. This was last year's roster: @benzy89 @mantoine56 @tphaeng @E90SoFlo @Hansel22 @bigdnno98 @chrisisnapping @Njz @MAC335 @mjmarovi @nelsonmg Anyone from the above list gets priority for this year. Let's go with a $50 buy in to start for now. I'd prefer to do more but we'll see what people say. $50: 1st place: $450 2nd place:$100 3rd place: $50

    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 Autowerk 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.

    You know by now that BMW and Toyota announced a technology sharing agreement. You should also know that BMW and Toyota are collaborating on a new sports car. For BMW, that means the next generation Z4 and for Toyota that means a possible return of the Supra nameplate. There are a lot of rumors about what exactly is going to happen but a new report from MotorTrend sheds some light on the subject. The car obviously will be a hybrid which is why the collaboration happened in the first place. Toyota has some great electric motors and hybrid technology which they have experience with from the Prius and BMW does as well with the 'i' brand now. We will see some mixing and matching as BMW's lightweight technology is paired with Toyota's electronic designs that BMW will produce. The expected result is a lightweight 3085 pound car. This is a great weight target for a sports car and especially one with a hybrid drivetrain. Power is expected to come from a direct injected 2.0 liter four-cylinder motor. Let's hope that the motor is BMW's as the N20 is a very strong candidate. This motor of course will be paired with an electric motor or two and the output should be in the 350+ horsepower range. That sounds pretty good with the 3085 pound curb weight making for a car that is fun to drive and toss into the corners. The car may not be rear wheel drive as the electric motor will be front mounted. That means the next generation Z4 and Supra likely will have all wheel drive. So what is the target date for these two cars? 2017. The end result is going to be very interesting to see. Source

    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?

    It's time to add horsepower guys. I'm not sure why we're going up as quickly as we're going up as I'm not ready for it. I wish traffic and load would go down a bit but, well, this is the trend: So, I'm exploring server upgrade options at the moment. Please bear with me. Also I hope this is easy on the checkbook as this is getting expensive to run.

    We already saw this comparison earlier in the year when Car and Driver compared the F82 M4 to the Porsche 991 Carrera. In that comparison, the M4 came out on top. Let's see what happens when the Brits over at EVO get a hold of both of these cars for a track comparison. This is the big question, does the M4's power and updated chassis allow it to beat the lighter rear engined Porsche 991 Carrera around the track? EVO does the comparison well showing both cars lapping at the same time. This allows some of the trademark characteristics of the cars to show. Namely that the 911 has less understeer on turn in but this is the area that one traditionally has to be careful with a 911 getting back on the power exiting the apex so that oversteer does not bite you in rear end. The 911 handling is definitely tighter. The M4's additional mass shows as it tends to push a bit. The 911's lead built in and out of turns is made up by the M4's power. Finesse versus muscle is what we witness. The tighter the course gets, the more it ends up favoring the 991. Laptimes (for reference a 458 Speciale laps this track in 1:14.2): Porsche 991 Carrera: 1:17.8 BMW F82 M4: 1:19.2 The 911 in this comparison proves it is the better sports car. To open up a gap like that on the M4 even with a huge power deficit shows how impressive the 991 chassis is. If this was a 911 model with more power, it would not even be a contest. The M4 is more muscle car and that is the direction BMW M is headed with their street cars. If you want the cheaper car with more power, the choice is the M4. If you want the better driver's car, it's the 911.

    The Active Autowerke Level III supercharged M3's continues to impress. This particular M3 runs a full bolt on Cobb tuned Nissan GTR on the highway. The GTR has the Cobb tune, downpipes, a full exhaust system, intake work, and is on 93 octane pump gas. The M3 features the Active Autowerke Gen 2 Level III S65 v8 supercharger system along with a full exhaust setup. It is not stated whether it is on pump gas or race gas for this run. A full bolt on GTR with a tune is a very potent weapon. However, a roll on race between the two cars on the highway assuming similar power should favor the M3. Why? Because it is rear wheel drive, revs higher, and lighter. A run from a stop favors the GTR with its all wheel drive traction and torque advantage. As both cars have a dual clutch transmission that particular area is even. The M3 pulls surprisingly quickly but it also looks to get a jump on the 'two' count. Regardless, it continues its pull. It would be great to see a rematch between these two cars with the GTR on a race gas map.

    Had some fun runs the other night in mexico, on the bridge to brisk.. Had a nice HD cam, but the girl didn't know where she should be recording lol Non the less i walked the gallardo each time and pretty good.. In this video i got a small jump.. My M5 has Evolve stage 2 tune, drop in filters with scoops and full RPI exhaust, but she is running like a monster! I drove the Gallardo that night, and man it felt soo freaky fast! I thought i was gonna get walked.. Such a great experience with a V10 behind you and a open top being so low! The e-gear shifts at WOT are harder then the SMG! But also slower to shift.

    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.

    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

    Hey guys, I have several reasons for wanting to sell the car but most importantly I want to buy a house and could use the cash as a down payment. First off, here is a link to the build thread to see more detailed work and the quality of the work that has been done to the car. Build thread one (when I was going to do VTT S2B2) http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?42386-09-e92-335i-performance-project-VTT-S2-B2-countdown! Build thread two http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?52278-mjmarovi-s-Single-Turbo-build-at-Proven-Power-Tampa Here's some basics- 09' Single Turbo N54 e92 coupe 6AT Montego Blue Metallic with black Dakota leather interior 43,400 miles Fully Loaded with sunroof, navigation, upgraded LED halo lights, interior lights, door sill lights, auto windshield wipers, Logic 7 Harmon Kardon sound system, etc. DOES NOT HAVE BACKUP CAMERA, only option missing AFAIK Bone Stock car is valued at $24,750 Aftermarket work estimated value (lost track a long time ago)- ~$30k. ASKING PRICE- $39,500 OBO There is a ton of stuff on this car, and some stuff not installed yet. Price is negotiable, and we can negotiate what stuff you may not want and I will take it off and sell separately. I only bought the car on mother's day of last year (2013) and car was at the shop getting upgrades for 5 months of that time, always garage kept, only a weekend car, not daily driven, maintained well ahead of schedule cause of work. It has all new O2 sensors front and rear and a new LPFP sensor and exhaust vanos solenoid. HPFP was of course changed out by previous owner at ~28,000 miles if I recall the maintenance history. OK, before we get to the pics, here's a list of the exterior mods installed: Carbon Fiber Front Lip Carbon Fiber Rear spoiler Carbon Fiber Hood BC Forged 18" two-piece forged wheels. 20x9 fronts and 20x9.5 rears current tires are BFG drags on rear and Bridgestone potenza runflats 255/35r18 on front. (have black wheel locks installed and are of course included) Tinted windows by Formula1 tint lifetime high quality ceramic tint Upgraded Headlight "halo's" to LED bulbs Black Kidney Grille Painted Black mesh grills on front bumper Exterior mods that come with the car but not installed: M3 style front bumper EVO 3D carbon fiber front lip for above bumper M3 style sideskirts And now for the good stuff...performance mods: Proven Power Single Turbo bottom mount kit -Custom Manifold with ceramic coating -New hardpiping for chargepipe hotside to FMIC inlet -Wastegate "screamer pipe" exiting by bottom of downpipe -Windshield washer fluid reservoir -MAC boost solenoid -SS cooling lines for turbo I know I'm leaving things out...but can't think right now Forced Performance HTA3586r turbo (75lb/min turbo or ~750+ hp) AEM EMS standalone ECU used in conjunction with Cobb AP True 3.5bar (50psi) boost sensor Tial 38mm wastegate Tial Q Blow-Off Valve ETS chargepipe ETS 7" Front Mount Intercooler BMS 2.2 gallon methanol kit (currently disconnected, but easily reconnected and ran, was planning on upgrading to PTF PI system soon) Custom 3" stainless steel downpipe to custom midpipe Active Autowerke Dual Exhaust system Walbro 255inline low pressure fuel pump PTF billet motor mounts ECS Tuning transmission mounts Active Autowerke Strut Bar Mishimoto custom mounted Transmission cooler with upgraded DASH-10 AN connections with DASH-10 Black SS transmission fluid lines all the way back to transmission Custom VTT oil cooler thermostat delete plate with black SS oil lines BMS cabin filters and "cowl delete" I do have a Team MFactory LSD but have not had it installed. I was waiting to install along with a built transmission that will be on its way from NizPro in AUS literally at anytime. Please contact me to discuss what would happen with the transmission, the LSD is included with the car unless you don't want it for some reason. Up until I sell it I do plan on getting some dyno numbers, but while I was using the JB4 and BB Flash OTS tune I did trap 122 at 20 psi. Haven't made it back to the track or to a dyno yet since running the new tune, but literally just got it hooked up and have only gone a short cruise around town. And here's some pics!

    Test and tune nights are pretty straight forward, you drive the car to the track, wait in line, make a few passes throughout the night and go home. On a hot, muggy July evening we took the shop 2014 Alpha 7 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG 4matic to our local track, Great Lakes Dragway to make some data acquisition runs before installing our new Alpha Boost Cooler system. Rain was predicted for the evening and track attendance reflected the forecast, there were very few cars running leaving the staging lanes wide open. Getting right to it Paul staged the E63 M157 BiTurbo and made a quick shakedown pass at 10.92. We checked the logs and continued to run the car making multiple 10 second passes. After making a few consistent passes most people would be satisfied and call it a night, but we had another idea, just how many 10 second passes could we run that night? The goal was set at 10 to test the consistency of our Alpha 5.5L BiTurbo tune. Pass after pass was made throughout the night and we exceeded our goal by making ELEVEN 10 second passes with a best of 10.87 @ 128.28mph, only two hundredths of a second off our current 4Matic record. Each of the 11 passes the Alpha powered AMG made was within .099 seconds and 1.32 mph of each other. In addition, the 0-60 times were all 2.86 seconds verified by the V-Box Sport. Talk about consistency!Overall we are very pleased with the results from the Alpha 7 5.5L BiTurbo package. It has proven it is capable of beating exotic cars like the McLaren MP4-12c and has performed flawlessly during all our testing. This package has been amazingly consistent and we look forward to going back to the track once the Alpha Boost Cooler system is installed and improving on our current best of 10.85 @ 129mph.
