    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.

    - Dragtimes.com "While we’re still waiting for the Lamborghini Huracan to hit the streets over here in the US, they are out and about elsewhere in the world. We came across some video of a brand new Lamborghini Huracan in Rosso Mars running heads up vs a Porsche 911 Turbo S PDK Cabriolet.The Huracan’s 5.2L V10 with 610 horsepower, 7 speed dual clutch transmission and 3,450 pound curb weight should put it pretty far ahead of the Porsche’s 3.8L Twin Turbocharged Flat 6 with 530 horsepower and a 7 speed PDK transmission and 3,600 curb weight. However, the races are very close with each car pulling ahead at different points in the race." http://www.dragtimes.com/blog/lamborghini-huracan-vs-porsche-911-turbo-s-pdk-racing

    This race is simply a beatdown. To those that know the cars it should not be all that surprising. Both cars feature tunes from PP-Performance. The C63 AMG Black Series M156 engine is already in a high state of tune from the factory. As the 6.2 liter M156 engine is naturally aspirated and tuned aggressively by AMG there is not much room to gain power on the car. Certainly not as much room to gain with a tune as there is with the turbocharged M4. The cars put out very similar wheel horsepower figures in stock form as the C63 AMG Black Series shows ~430 wheel horsepower on a Dynojet. With a tune this can approach the 460 wheel horsepower range depending on how aggressive the timing is and the fuel quality. The stock torque figure is roughly ~405 lb-ft of torque at the wheels whereas the S55 in the M3/M4 shows 429 lb-ft of wheel torque stock. Once tuned, even with a modest tune, the M4 exceeds the C63 Black Series. Horsepower rises to over 479 at the wheels and torque at the wheels goes to 484 lb-ft. Combine the power and torque advantage with a quicker shifting dual clutch transmission and the M4's roughly 400 pound lighter curb weight and you get the result you see here. Not to mention the C63 AMG Black Series aerodynamics also create more drag. The M4 continues to pull impressively to 175 miles per hour and the C63 AMG Black Series is too far back to even be seen. AMG fans will no doubt be quick to point out that if you boost the C63 AMG Black Series things change in the other direction.

    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.

    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?

    I am pretty sure someone posted this question already, but I am limited with internet right now. I have a 2007 335i E92 lowered on ST coils with VMR VB3 19x9.5 et 33. I had my friend install the wheels on my car, and he told it did not clear the strut, so he used a spare 15mm spacers. It cleared, but I think it pokes out to much from the fender. So my question is, what is the minimum size spacer i should run on my set up to clear the strut?

    Here is my Rage-Tek custom built twin turbo E55 AMG. Its taken 15 months to complete this build due to fitment and tuning problems, but it is now running strong on 14psi. We have custom built turbo manifolds (no turbos just thrown under the car) and a modified stock E500 intake manifold with twin GTX3076R (58s). I ran at the Bizspeed event at Palm Beach International Raceway. Great event btw. Car had 18s wrapped in MTs. Time slips for the night in order Here is my last run of the night against a modded CTS V. The DA and Temp is on the vid. And you can follow my IG for more updates. http://instagram.com/p/sdSIEwlTde/ Enjoy!!!

    How hard is it to make maps from scratch on a motec 400? Background: I'm thinking about buying a M1000 turbo from a local guy. I've been following the fuelly snowmobile turbo tuning world loosely but still run all carbed rigs. The Sled has an Attitude fuel controller on it but I would like to switch it to a Motec to really maximize the 3076 that is on the sled. So Motec makes a plug and play 400(link) for Apex and XM snowmobiles but not arctic cats so I would need to build a custom harness and swap injectors I'm confident I can do this but the tuning is what I'm worried about never built a map from scratch and never worked with a Motec. So to get to the meat of the advanced discussion what process do you use to develop a base map for a custom application. Do you guess and hope it runs and then tune from there. Is there a book with recommended settings for displacement and CR for tuning a Motec. I'm hoping someone here has enough experience to point me in the right direction.

    We're about to become bigger, stronger, and faster than ever. I've got some serious hardware coming in and the switch will take place early Thursday morning. Downtime should be several hours as everything is transferred over. We should be up and running for everyone by the time the afternoon rolls around.

In addition, 1991 Geo Metro Cabriolets (don't call it a convertible you uncouth bastard) were well known to be track beasts, so try not to let it out drive your skill and kiss a wall during the many driving events the GCCA (Geo Car Club of America) puts on. Everyone keeps talking about these multimillion dollar Ferraris going up at auction. Ha! This is where real money can be made. Sit on this for another 23 years and it is guaranteed to be worth at least a pack of chewing gum and half a roll of toilet paper. -Rich

    We've taken a look back at our history and picked five styles to refresh with a modern twist; introducing the Classic Series. We found inspiration in iconic sports cars like the Ferrari 512TR, Porsche 964, BMW E36 M3, Acura NSX and even German wagons like the W124 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The new Classic line debuts with five new styles including the 300 mesh, the 301 split-9-spoke, the 303 13-spoke, the 305 5-spoke and the 309 19-spoke. The Classic line is available in diameters ranging from 18 to 22 inches and widths range from 7 to 14 inches. Features include a modern conical profile with clean and simple spoke designs that highlight the style of wheels and cars before the domination of modern era of automation and electronics. This simplicity in the designs also allows HRE to offer these wheels at prices that are significantly lower than their more complex designs.

    http://s3.postimg.org/eaeai4njn/image.jpg GAD Motors is the first to explore deep with the AMG's specially in the M157 motor with there world first turbo upgrade back two years ago & still they are showing us more & more of there improvements. Here is GAD Motors showing us a extreme amazing record of 100-200km in just 4.3sec. There isn't any description or informations about this setup which comes from a Instagram photo only, it's mentioned that's a E63 S Model that recorder the 4.3sec 100-200km. So if renntech E63 S Model turbo upgrade which is build for vasily1 a guy in Russia which lately send us he's E63 SModle against the Lamborgini Huracan. His E63 is 850hp@crank & the is capable of 5.5sec in the 100-200km ! So how come can GAD kick the 5sec 100-200km easily like that ! Is it a engine modification such as better internals or a camshafts or can we say that's a heavy modification a turbo with its manifold & external wastgeat ??

    This is not the first time we have seen a modified M157 Mercedes AMG beat a Lamborghini Aventador. A Benzboost member who has an E63 AMG S 4Matic with Renntech upgraded turbos has been beating up on just about everything including the Aventador. This CLS63 is not the 4Matic all wheel drive variant however but the pre-facelift rear wheel drive model which is lighter. It does however feature the same basic M157 twin turbo 5.5 liter V8 AMG motor. So how do the Kleemann K3 M157 upgrades show? Very well as the CLS63 AMG is able to open up a small lead on the Aventador. Up top, it appears the Aventador starts to pull but both cars shut down as they approach traffic. Considering the Kleemann K3 upgrade consists of just exhaust and ECU modifications (although further details are hard to find on the Kleemann website which really needs some work) the run certainly is impressive against an opponent like the Aventador with its 700 horsepower 6.5 liter V12. Turbo torque isn't easy to beat:

    I have for sale a pair of Fresh Rebuilt RB turbos in box straight from Rob. He now includes balancing results for added piece of mind. Again these are not used for 1 mile since his rebuild, fresh and ready to go. I trapped 127 and ran low 8s 60-130 with an OTS flash with these. Cant beat this set per $ spent. These are RHD 335i Turbos... $2700 Shipped, no core charge, zero miles on this set , complete rebuild. PM me if interested and ill get back to you asap. I wont post these anywhere else for a bit to give this board first dibs at these. Thanks for looking. Also please note: There are many new upgrades available for these if you want to contact him directly I can send these right back to Rob if that is something you are interested in. My car is auto limiting the length of its life increasing costs on this car plus the cost to install these, without selling them just doesn't make sense for me right now. Pics from my wife for now:

Fear not for I have a solution for this. This is an all natural product derived strait from cane sugar and no other additives. That's right it is 100% pure cane sugar just add to any tank of fuel, simply pour it in using the conveniently placed pull out pouring nozzle and go!

The number of people importing is insignificant in the grand scheme of things, so I don't buy the safety/environment arguments.
