    I don't mind investing in mining rigs. It's just what kind of hardware is best? I'll start looking into it. You have $250k of Ethereum though? That's nuts.

    Does anyone care? Personally, I just think it's a cash grab for both. They both are very similar self-promoters. McGregor can't beat Floyd in boxing, come on. I think he knows he'll lose, he'll take his big check, then say Floyd should fight him in the Octagon so they double dip essentially and each saves face fighting on their own terms. Whatever. I'm not ordering.

    Someone please put this poor Civic out of its misery. WTF do you even say about this car? There is no shame in not having money to modify a car or to do some incredible build. Why completely ruin a car and make it look like a pile of garbage though? There are those who say this is the only way for some to get attention but why would you want the kind of attention this Civic brings? It can barely drive on the road. The exhaust is beyond words. Why? WHY? The only thing on this car that makes any sense is the bumper sticker which reads, 'I'm so gay I don't even drive straight.' :facepalm:

    With me swapping over stuff from the 335 to the 135 I'm also making the transition to a dual clutch transmission as well as upgrading some other stuff. All parts listed have less than 2,000 miles on them and are fully functional. If interested let me know and I'll come up with a price -level 10 transmission 1000hp package w/bulletproof converter and valve body. I have invoice to show the work done to anyone interested. Yes this trans is a good trans and has held power as well as went through a proper break in. -fuel-it stage 3 pump -3.46 geared bolted big pumpkin diff with mfactory LSD and Drive Shaft shop 1000 hp axles (must be sold together) -factory 135i axles - if the intake manifold turns out to be what I want I will sell the motiv port injection plate and rail. Will not come with fuel lines or fpr -transmission 4000 obo -fuel it stage 3 pump 500 obo -LSD 3.46 gears with drive shaft shop axles 1900 obo

    Another GTBored video showing a BMW crushing its opposition. It is not hard to believe that a tuned M6 Competition Package will pull away from a CTS-V but this is not even a race. The starting speed is 80 kph (50 mph) which favors the BMW. For whatever reason, Cadillac CTS-V's are never shown doing well in these videos. The LT4 V8 is a stout mill and with bolt ons can easily dispatch tuned S63TU's. The HCP tune on the M6 no doubt is solid but it would be great to see a tuned CTS-V and an actual race for once and not just an M car putting instant bus lengths on whatever they put next to it. This video feels like a marketing piece for the tuner more than anything else.

    Ethanol has exploded in popularity in the automotive tuning scene and for good reason. It is cheap race gas. It also brings with it numerous benefits such as high octane and cooling namely in direct injected applications. Not to mention a very clean burn. It also has downsides of course such as quickly taxing fuel systems due to the energy content of ethanol requiring greater volume. Ignite Racing Fuels offers several different ethanol based fuels. What you get at your local station that has ethanol will not offer the same consistency or quality. It may be fine for those who like to do a little blending with pump gas but if you are pushing high horsepower, boost, compression, or going to an event in kill mode you will want the best fuel possible to prevent costly mishaps. Then of course there are those of us who do not have a station selling E85 and would like a barrel of fuel for an event or even to keep in the garage when wanting to try out that new high boost map. As someone speaking from experience with leaded C16 gunking up injectors ethanol race fuel is the way to go if your fuel system can handle it. Some of the fastest cars out there are using it: Let's take a quick look at some of the ethanol based fuels they offer: From cars: To boats: Or whatever ethanol racing fuels are here to stay and the days of C16 or MS109 being the choice are in the past. Not to mention a barrel of Ignite E85 is cheaper than either of the aforementioned. With modern turbocharged and direct injected motors, why would you run anything other than ethanol on high boost?

    Not sure if this will gain any traction or not. I'm always curious towards one's profession, especially if they have some level of success. For myself i have done a few things from freight logistics coordinator to CDL class A delivery driver. Currently working in HVAC filter manufacturing and going to school for M.E. on the side. I make enough to enjoy some aspects of life, but definitely not where I want to be. :) So, what do you guys do?
