    Super excited for their new show. Rumor has it it will be called "Gear Knobs" - self deprecating and a shot towards Top Gear. the budget is apparently astronomical. Clarkson's tweet on production starting backs that up: Looks like the first episode should be pretty epic too: P1, LaFerrari and a 918. Let's hope they are free of Ferrari's normal henchmen. -Rich

    Weistec improved on their AMG GT S baseline 1/4 mile run by 6/10's of a second. This is with the addition of their M178 ECU tune, mid-pipes, air filters, and downpipes. Keep in mind while the mile per hour for the trap speed is roughly the same the elapsed time is much quicker. The reason for the trap speed not taking a big jump is the big heat in Southern California. Combine 87 degree weather and a track that is slow to begin with (California Dragway which is 1100 feet above sea level) and it puts the result in context. The density altitude at the time was 3199 feet above sea level. Not what one would call record breaking conditions. Despite the heat and despite the elevation Weistec managed back to back 10 second passes. They also set a new quickest AMG GT S M178 record which stands at 10.896 seconds. For those wondering, the fastest 1/4 mile pass on the AMG GT C190 platform remains 128.46 miles per hour. The conditions on the East Coast for that run were more favorable. What we will see happen now is times will drop across the country as conditions improve. What will tuned AMG GT's hit in the winter? We would expect over 130 miles per hour and mid 10's. Especially considering this pass was achieved on the factory rubber showing what a tuned AMG GT S is realistically capable of on the street. For now this is the time to beat. Congratulations to Weistec on running the quickest M178 pass to date.

    j_hynson started a thread For Sale: FFTEC Top Mount Kit N54 in Buy/Sell - Parts
    I have decided to remove the FFTEC Top mount manifold set up and go with the Motiv Motorsport 900. The FFTEC kit has less than 100 miles on it. Have a few people on here who can vouch for that including my build thread. Has full 3" downpipe and both are wrapped in DEI titanium. The kit will also come with the AN oil drain set up that eliminates the Issues that were common with the hard pipe set up. The turbo is a Precision 6766 journal Turbo. When I ordered it I ordered it with the wrong compressor cover. I ordered the H cover and needed the ported S :angry-banghead: I have spoke with a rep over at Precision and he told me around 400 to put the S cover on and ship it back to pretty much anywhere in the US mainland. It is still currently on the car but I will be removing it and it will be for sale. Just getting this post out here to get the ball rolling 4000 OBO. Will even throw in a VRSF full exhaust system if buyer pays shipping cost. (not fitted so fabrication will be needed)

    Last Sunday my E63 S participated in a quarter mile private exotic car runway event in upstate New York. She killed all the exotics she faced. She even beat a turbo upgrade 997.1 Turbo S 2 of 4 times. Here are her biggest kills: 1. Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (driven by a good friend. I felt bad about this result as his car is one of my favs in the world) 2. Gallardo Superleggera 3. Gallardo
