    Some good runs here but unfortunately all of the cars do not run each other. The camera car is a Paxton Blown Mustang 5.0 GT Coyote with roughly 700 horsepower. It captures the action as the cars go at it on the highway. The first run is the 700 horsepower STI vs. what is said to be an 800 horsepower Mazdaspeed 3. We would love to know the mods on the Mazda as it is fast! Very, very fast. It makes easy work of the STI from a 60 mph roll the STI itself being no slouch. They go at it again and the second time the STI gets a better start and holds off the Mazda. The STI then goes up against the Mustang camera car. The camera work is poor on this run but the Mustang gets the hit and holds off the STI. Next up is the Mustang and the C63 AMG and they do several runs. The first run has the Mustang jump and it takes an easy lead which it holds. The C63 gets a much better start in the second run and opens a quick lead thanks to the twin screw torque and holds it up top thanks to the M156 top end. The final run between the Mustang and the C63 again has a quick count with the Mustang getting on the throttle first. It is a good race between the two but the GT edges slightly up top. We wish we had more detailed specs on the cars but good runs nevertheless. Edit Mazdaspeed 3 specs: built 2.3 built head PTE6466 e85 lots of boost

    Things have changed a bit regarding rally racing spectators. Why? Well, take a look at the gif posted below and you will understand why. Back in the legendary 80's Group B days as well as other rally classes drivers would have to contend not only with the elements but spectators as well. This speaks for itself.

    Congratulations to BenzBoost member @charliekay who is so close to the 9's in his supercharged W204 C63 AMG that he can taste it. He upgraded to the Weistec 3.0 liter Stage III twin screw blower and ran 10.22 @ 137.09 which was a considerable improvement from the 10.83 @ 129.22 he managed on the Stage II 2.3 liter blower. Now with different wheels and tires he shaved it down to 10.173 @ 139.18 on a 1.549 60 foot. Obviously a better launch than the previous 1.606 60 foot so the new tire setup is helping. He is just a hair away from the 9's but as @charliekay is an Australian member keep in mind the weather is not doing him any favors right now. In the winter we might see that elusive 9 second pass which is certainly impressive for a stock internal supercharged M156.

    This is a great race to see with the two previous generation German rivals duking it out with some boost. The C63 AMG belongs to BoostAddict member @gzim335. You likely know the car as it was involved in a controversial race against an F82 M4 with upgraded S55 turbos. The C63 M156 V8 equipped with a Weistec Stage III 3.0 liter twin screw is fast. We know that and an example recently ran 10.1 @ 139 in the 1/4 mile. We do not know which AA supercharger kit is on the E92 M3. It is running meth and higher boost so it is possibly a Level III but hopefully clarification on that will come from the participants. What is clear is that on the stock internals the M156 V8 has an advantage over the S65 V8 on stock internals which is not surprising. The torque certainly pays dividends here as the C63 opens up just enough of a lead to pass the M3 before running into traffic at high speed. While the video is very much appreciated it goes to show how quickly one runs out of space at these speeds and power levels. Hopefully we can see a rematch with multiple runs on open road so it is safer for all involved and nobody has to let off to avoid an accident.

    Quote: "A proposal by the Environmental Protection Agency could mean bad things for racers and car enthusiasts across the United States. According to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), the EPA wants to make it illegal to modify your roadgoing car for racing, and could even prohibit the sale of aftermaket parts that mess with emission control devices. Tucked away in an EPA proposal titled Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Engines and Vehicles—Phase 2 is a section that indicates this sort of vehicle modification is a violation of the clean air act. Here's the exact wording, found on page 862 of an official EPA document: EPA is proposing in 40 CFR 1037.601(a)(3) to clarify that the Clean Air Act does not allow any person to disable, remove, or render inoperative (i.e., tamper with) emission controls on a certified motor vehicle for purposes of competition. SEMA met with the EPA to confirm the agency's intentions, and issued a statement saying, "The EPA indicated that the regulation would prohibit conversion of vehicles into racecars and make the sale of certain emissions-related parts for use on converted vehicles illegal." The association added, "SEMA will continue to oppose the regulation through the administrative process and will seek congressional support and judicial intervention as necessary." Cars used exclusively for racing have not always been held to the same emissions standards as their roadgoing counterparts. This EPA document outlines exactly how the Clean Air Act applied to cars used exclusively for racing, as well as new cars the EPA and various automakers classify as "competition" models. Here, it was simply not allowed to modify cars that would be used for both competitive and recreational use. "This proposed regulation represents overreaching by the agency, runs contrary to the law and defies decades of racing activity where EPA has acknowledged and allowed conversion of vehicles," said Chris Kersting, president and CEO of SEMA. The EPA is expected to publish its final regulations in July. Scroll down to read SEMA's official statement.

    This video is not being posted due to the cinematography. With no camera views from inside the cars we usually dismiss this stuff as junk. It is not hard to get a couple Go Pros these days and show clear HD video. However, the commentary of the butthurt AMG owner is glorious to behold. Which of these cars is faster stock for stock? The W205 C63 AMG S is both quicker and faster. However, as it is rear wheel drive it takes a bit more skill to launch. Need proof? A stock W205 C63 went 12.5 @ 119 in the 1/4 mile. A stock W205 C63 AMG S went 11.6 @ 120 on a better 60 foot. Almost a full second difference due to launch quality. A stock X5M will run low 12's at close to 115. You can look at a Dinan tuned example in the 1/4 mile (because it performs almost like stock anyway) here. If you ran the cars from a roll, the X5M would lose every single time. They are not running from a roll though and that means the traction advantage is with the all wheel drive 5000+ pound behemoth. The X5M in the first dig race gets the hit and wins easily. The second run has an even start and the X5M just edges ahead. That is the end of the racing and then the excuses begin to pour out from the AMG owner. First, he talks about how he put $50k down. Yet, he didn't spend any of that on drag tires or driving lessons which is where the money clearly needs to go. The AMG owner then asks for a 60-180 run. Seriously? You don't even know you have a 155 mph limiter on there? Plus 130 miles an hour is plenty to show who has the stronger top end. The AMG owner says in Germany a 1/4 mile doesn't mean anything. Well, even the Germans probably know you should know how to launch if you're going to run on the street from a dig against an all wheel drive car. Plus the 1/4 mile specs should tell him his best race is a roll. He's using the German argument here (poorly) to say the car is designed for the Autobahn. The X5M is from a German company as well though so he's reaching for anything. The guys on the side of the X5M did not give him a roll race and said they wanted to run again but in a 1/4 mile. So, they ran their race and won. The C63 guy says he has an E63 on order after that. Good, because it looks like he needs the all wheel drive of the E63 to mask his driving and his bullshit. Lulz
