    20 roll (m3 camera car) 26# pump+meth Got some crazy spinning even with 295 r888's but 295/30/19. Need more side wall so planing on running a 275/40-45/16 m/t setup. Feathered the throttle a little and got back in it, reeled him in easy and pulled hard from there.

    MotorTrend starts the year off right with a Head 2 Head episode pitting the new Gen V Dodge Viper ACR against the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. We do not have to tell you how impressive the Dodge Viper ACR is. It is the baddest track on the planet for the money. MotorTrend's Jonny Lieberman starts off by saying Dodge's documented claim of thirteen lap records for the ACR is similar to your mom telling you that you are good looking. Not a good analogy at all and quite disrespectful to the achievement. A subjective point on looks from a family member is not at all the same as objective results with data to back up them up. Dodge backed them up thirteen times and it is not like they are stopping anyone from trying to top them. Just a dumb point right off the bat that places MotorTrend's self-serving tests as the supposed standard. Remember that MotorTrend had issues with the C7 Z06. The car was not able to complete their best driver's challenge last year. Chevrolet states they fixed the problems and so MotorTrend gets another crack at track testing with the car. The straightline and braking battle goes to the ACR although we do not know if MotorTrend's numbers are from testing on the same day. If so, the ACR manages to have the higher trap speed despite the drag from the extra downforce. Impressive. Randy Pobst takes the cars out to Laguna Seca but before they test the Americans a German is thrown in for context. That German being yet another one of the best track cars and dedicated driver's cars in the world known as the 911 GT3 RS. It sets the bar at 1:33.29 despite Pobst struggling somewhat with oversteer. That is quick and a new record but both the Z06 and Viper ACR quickly top it. Lap Times: GT3 RS: 1:33.29 Z06: 1:33.05 ACR: 1:30.46 That ACR beats the GT3 RS and Z06 soundly. The Z06 is able to edge the Porsche by just over 2/10's but the ACR is just over 2.5 seconds quicker. A significant amount as you can see in the video when the two laps are juxtaposed. The Viper ACR is just flat out spectacular and one of the best track cars in the world at any price point. There is nothing else to say.

    This is one we have been dying to see. Two American supercharged V8 brutes with four doors and a ton of power. The CTS-V of course features the LT4 supercharged and direct injected 6.2 liter V8 from the Corvette Z06 although it is 'detuned' to 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque. That is less power and torque than the 707 horsepower from the twin screw supercharged Hemi Hellcat 6.2 liter V8. Less torque as well as the Charger Hellcat is rated at 650 lb-ft of torque. The ratings do not tell the story as both of these engines are underrated. The Hellcat dynos in the ~660 wheel horsepower range with ~600 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. The LT4 does not give up any torque and actually shows slightly more torque on some dyno runs but it is down by roughly ~70 rear wheel horsepower. The Hellcat's bigger 2.4 liter twin screw blower appears to have a distinct advantage. The Hellcat needs that power to move its heavy 4560 pound behind. The CTS-V is no lightweight but it is a significant ~400 pounds lighter. Both cars have 8-speed automatic transmissions. How does it play out? The first dig race has the Hellcat come out on top. The owner decides to give the CTS-V the hit on the second run and the CTS-V pulls away as the Charger spins its tires. It is interesting to note that the Hellcat does start to reel the Caddy in up top and would have passed it if the CTS-V did not shut down. They move to roll races after this but there is some miscommunication in the first run as the Hellcat gets on the gas then gets off to get back on again. The second run offers a cleaner start and the Hellcat decisively pulls. Great runs here between the two supercharged beasts but the bigger beast is the Hellcat. The amount of power Dodge is giving consumers for the money is simply incredible.

    Direct quote: "Taking on BMWs M division is easier said than done, but Hyundai believes it has what it takes. Notably, the South Korean car maker has appointed Albert Biermann, the former chief engineer of BMW M, to lead its performance-oriented N sub-brand. Biermann has first-hand knowledge of what makes a M-badged BMW spectacular to drive, and he also knows how to build a Hyundai that can surpass or at least match the M4 in terms of performance and driving dynamics."

    The E60 M5 camera car in the video belongs to BimmerBoost member tjav8b. His car is no slouch in stock form thanks to the S85 5.0 liter V10 under the hood but his is not stock. It is boosted courtesy of a Vortech based supercharger kit meaning it is quite potent especially on the top end. He decided to take his car to a 1/2 mile race event in Florida where there was a variety of competition. Competition that included this CTS-V that suddenly just pulls away like the M5 is standing still. We do not know the modifications on the CTS-V. All we know is it is impressive to say the least. The CTS-V trapped over 170 on this run and the M5 managed 159 miles per hour. Thank you tjav8b for sharing the video and not caring about a win or loss.

    Mercedes-Benz sure seems to be blending its styles together. The new W205 C-Class has a lot of W222 S-Class in it. As does the W213 generation E-Class which itself looks like either a bigger C-Class or a smaller S-Class. Maybe a mix of both is what Mercedes wants? The models are blending too much together in the opinion of BenzBoost. The E-class took a step back from differentiating itself from the other models when the trademark separated headlights were ditched. It now looks more than ever like the other Mercedes sedans. Do you want your Mercedes sedan small, medium, or large? The design is somewhat boring in that respect. Sure, the interior upgrades are great and it is packed with technology but Mercedes styling is becoming bland. We will have more details when the car officially debuts later this month at the Detroit Auto Show but expect the new E63 AMG to have 4Matic all wheel drive and an M177 twin turbo V8 derivative other the hood.

    This is one of the hardest things I have had to do but my baby is up for sale. I'm selling in order to be able to help my parents financially. I am in Canada (Ottawa Ontario) but have sold cars to buyers in the US before and it is a very easy process. This car is originally a US car and was sold new from Champion Porsche if I remember correctly. I am a very honest seller andwill provide all the information I can. I have owned the car for about 4trouble free years. Car has been VERY reliable. It is a rare Slate Gray Metallic color and is gorgeous!!!! I bought the car stock and havemade the following modifications: K24/20G Billet Turbos 1.2bar tune (can be increased totake advantage of the K24/20G turbos) 70lbs/hr injectors 1.0bar Waste Gates Stage 3 Clutch Masters Clutch Replica GT2 rear deck Lid Stock modified exhuast (2 of the 4 cats removed and bypass mod done) 20" wheels Just before storingit for the winter I did the following maintenance... Changed Front Diff Fluid Changed Transmission Fluid New Spark Plugs New OEM Coils New Air Filter New OEM MAF Here is all the infoa buyer would want to know... The car has a couple of minor incedents (both prior to me owning it). The first was VERY slight damage to I think the front fender (no dent just ascratch that required painting) and the second was a minor hit from the rear. Iwas shown pictures and essentially there were scrapes on the rear bumperettes,the right rear tail light was cracked and the bottom right corner of the hatchwas bent in a bit (not an issue given it now has the GT2 style decklid althoughyou couldnt tell on the stock decklid anyway). The rear bumper wasnt even damaged and needed no paintrepair. The claim was higher than the work because they pulled some insurancecrap to make money. I only learnt this after I bought it and had the carchecked out when I found out about it and everything checked out. Last year I had the car painted due to rock chips. Rather than just paint the hood Idecided to invest on painting the entire thing to make sure it looks perfect.The shop that did the work is known for doing high-end cars and I get all mytoys done by them. The headlights and front bumper have clear shield installed to protect them. I would givethe exterior a 9 out of 10. The Interior is infantastic condition as well. I would say 9 out of 10 as well. I wax the car everyyear and also clean and condition the interior leather once a year as well. I onlyclean/wash by hand and use high end rags, soap, wax, leather care, etc. The tires are 2summers old and still have lots of life on them. The car is always stored and parked indoors. I am asking $39,500 (USD) OBO. The buyer can either pick it up and take it over themselves or we can arrage for it to be shipped at the buyers expense of course. I have included exterior pics (some have the stock OEM decklid but as mentioned it was replaced with a GT2 style decklid), pic of the interior to show the condition, pic of the wheels and also pics of the paint to show the condition.

    This should not be a shocker as Hennessey often takes credit for the work of others. Don't believe it? Hennessey patted himself on the back for his HPE700 Mustang GT supercharger system when it is really Whipple's blower and design. Just like how the Hennessey HPE600 AMG GT S tune is really Eurocharged's tune. Jerry Thorton at Eurocharged did the custom dyno tune. Hennessey will essentially resell the $2499 Eurocharged M178 tune at a premium. Why bother with paying for the Hennessey name when you can go straight to the source? Anyone?

    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.

    I'm looking at the AMS Alpha 7 and Alpha 9. The 7 keeps the stock turbos, is a couple thousand dollars cheaper and claims a 2.85 0-60 vice the 3.3 on the Alpha 9 which has upgraded turbos and costs more. What am I missing here? Why would someone get the Alpha 9 instead of the Alpha 7? My apologies if I am just being ignorant or can't read well.

    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.

    PDU stands for Performance Design Unlimited. They are a new vendor on BimmerBoost located in California and are showing off their N55 products. A great way to show them off is in real world comparisons against some fast cars and that is exactly what they do in the video below. The F22 M235i is upgraded with the Pure Turbos Stage 2 N55 turbocharger. Obviously this turbo can make quite a bit of power which is where the PDU Port Fuel Injection system comes in. The car is also running a JB4, ACF tune, and 100% E85. The N54 gets the lion's share of attention but it is nice to see the N55 taking down some stiff competition and getting tuning attention. Take a look at the runs. The F10 M5 is tuned with the a BMS Stage 1 piggyback. The M235i easily pulls away and puts some distance on the F10 M5 which is no slouch. A very impressive pull. Next up is a Nissan GTR with full bolt ons and a Cobb Stage 3 tune. The M235i puts up a really good fight but the GTR once it gets into the higher gears shows its muscle. As well all know a full bolt on GTR is an impressive performer. Next up are a pair of E92 M3's one of which is ESS supercharged. Both are trounced easily as is the ESS car which happens often when one races anywhere other than on a keyboard. The Huracan run is next and the M235i jumps early. The Huracan stays in for a bit and let's off. Based on the previous results the M235i should win but a Huracan run should be closer with a better start. A stock F82 M4 is up next and the car visibly spins and can not get traction. An ugly beatdown. The second run is even worse. The final run is a drag race against an ESS supercharged E92 M3. Yet another ESS loss. What we gather from this is PDU's fuel system is the real deal and the N55 can be made quite formidable with some upgrades. This M235i performs very well.

    Performance driving tends to be a man's domain. From Formula 1, to rally racing, to drifting, to you name it. There are exceptions of course and professional Malaysian drift driver Leona Chin is one of them. She poses as a clueless Mitsubishi sales girl selling the 2015 Mitsubishi Triton. The truck is not exactly a powerhouse with 178 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque from the 2.5 liter turbo diesel but it is enough power to scare the crap out of the potential male buyers when she takes the wheel and drifts the truck. There are a lot of lulz to be had in this video as you see and hear some of the men try and flirt with her as well as tell her that the vehicle is a man's car. The guy who tells her it is a man's car ends up asking her to stop driving which we assume she wanted to push him to the limit in particular. Enjoy the vid which is good for some laughs and never underestimate a driver based on their looks.

    Renntech released their R1 upgrade package for the AMG GT S M178 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 motor this week. The package consists of an ECU flash tune, downpipes, and air filters. Let's compare the results with the R1 package to the stock AMG GT S as well as an ECU tune only example. On a Dynojet Renntech recorded a baseline of 472 wheel horsepower and 432 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Very solid stock numbers considering the crank ratings. Yes, the AMG GT S is underrated. With Renntech's ECU tune horsepower goes to 529 at the wheels and torque takes a huge jump to 533 lb-ft at the wheels. As you can see, the gains in area under the curve down low are massive: To further maximize gains, the R1 package adds in downpipes. These are not catless downpipes but 200 cell sport cats. That means you aren't destroying the environment while still allowing better breathing. Power goes to 538 to the wheels and torque jumps by over 100 lb-ft over a stock example to 546 at the wheels. These are of course pump gas figures. The AMG GT S responds very well to bolt on tuning and this solid and reliable power and torque for the street. For those who want more, turbocharger upgrades are in order.

    So I wanted to try and get into doing some track events this upcoming summer or maybe autox so I figured I should get some wheels and tires since I want to ditch my run flats. I plan on getting Apex Arc-8 wheels and maybe NT01 tires, not sure yet. But the part that is really killing me is 17" vs 18" wheels. I can never seem to find a definitive answer on this, but wouldn't 17" wheels have better performance than an 18" wheel if the tires had the same size sidewall? Anyway here's some of the tire and wheel combo's I've been looking at and I'd like to hear some feedback: 1. 17x9.5" ET35 square with 255/40/17 tires 2. 17x.9" ET30 Front with 255/40/17 tires and 17x10" ET25 Rear with 275/40/17 tires 3. 18x.9.5" square (ET35 front, ET22 rear) with 255/40/18 Front and 285/30/18 Rear Lemme know if you need any more info to help me out or if you have any better suggestions! I'm also open to buying camber plates and spacers or maybe rolling fenders.

    Hi guys, thanks for taking the time to read this. I was just wondering what you guys value when looking for someone to build/work on your cars in terms of tuning/customization and how much weight you put on each aspect? For example, my list in order of importance: 1) Community reputation 2) Customer service 3) Results (1/4 mile, 1/2 mile, etc) 4) Value / price 5) Experience 6) Objectivity (Don't try to sell you parts you don't need or are sub-optimal) I'd really like to see how my list compares with you guys as a lot of you have been tuning cars a lot longer than I have, and have a lot more experience. Thanks!

    This is some hardware you do not see very often on the drag strip. These cars are more at home on the roadcourse but they certainly put up a good showing in a straightline as well. The hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder is well known with its naturally aspirated 608 horsepower 4.6 liter V8 that revs to 9150 rpm augmented by two electric motors for a total system output of 887 horsepower. Unlike the other two modern hybrid supercars the 918 Spyder sends power to all four wheels. That means the electric torque helps it get off the line quickly and it puts the power down effectively. How quickly does it move? Well, it makes a McLaren 650S look like it is standing still. The 650S is no slouch by the way capable of running low 10's at high 130's in the 1/4 mile thanks to its low curb weight and efficient rear wheel drive layout powered by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8. The 918 Spyder gets the better launch with a 1.64 60 foot to the 650S Spyder's 1.88. The end result is the 918 running 9.835 @ 144.95 to the Mclaren's 10.912 @ 133.46. The video claims the best time for the McLaren was a 10.3 @ 137.5 from earlier in the day but no proof is posted. It certainly is believable and well within reason. It also means the Ferrari 488 GTB should be a good match for it. Great runs and a well done video with multiple camera angles.

    MotorTrend finally put up their data panel showing the full bevvy of test data from their track comparison of the Dodge Viper ACR, Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The video comparison you likely already saw was posted earlier this month. So what do we learn? The GT3 RS is the lightest at 3243 pounds followed by the Viper ACR at 3368 pounds. The Z06 is the heaviest at 3499 which is not heavy by today's standards but much heavier than previous Z06 iterations. It is also very interesting to note that despite having the least amount of power and torque as well as the smallest motor the GT3 RS has the quickest elapsed time. This is likely due to having more weight on the rear wheels due to the engine layout as well as the ease of launching the PDK. It's safe to say MotorTrend needs to work on their launch in the Z06 and ACR. The GT3 RS does have a higher trap speed than the Z06 however. It can not be overstated how impressive that is considering that the Z06 has a larger 6.2 liter V8 motor with a supercharger on top. It's a minor miracle the GT3 RS can keep pace let alone top it in a 1/4 mile sprint. It deserves respect. The Viper of course is the trap speed king at 127.3 miles per hour making it the fastest of the trio. The GT3 RS gets to 100 the quickest of the trio. Again, impressive. The Z06 does pull the most on the skidpad at 1.17g yet it can't get near the Viper on the roadcourse. It tops the GT3 RS by just .24 of a second. Basically, it's a driver's race between the Z06 and GT3 RS. The ACR is the champ and it can run with hardware that costs over a million dollars. It's a shame the car will be put out to pasture soon. It does however make a hell of a statement on its way out. 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (Z07) 2016 Dodge Viper ACR 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS POWERTRAIN/CHASSIS DRIVETRAIN LAYOUT Front-engine, RWD Front-engine, RWD Rear-engine, RWD ENGINE Supercharged 90-deg V-8, alum block/heads 90-deg V-10, alum block/heads Flat-6, alum block/heads VALVETRAIN OHV, 2 valves/cyl OHV, 2 valves/cyl DOHC, 4 valves/cyl DISPLACEMENT 376.1 cu in/6162cc 511.5 cu in/8,382 cc 243.8 cu in/3,996 cc COMPRESSION RATIO 10.0:1 10.2:1 12.9:1 POWER (SAE NET) 650 hp @ 6,400 rpm* 645 hp @ 6,200 rpm 500 hp @ 8,250 rpm TORQUE (SAE NET) 650 lb-ft @ 3,600 rpm* 600 lb-ft @ 5,000 rpm 338 lb-ft @ 6,250 rpm REDLINE 6,500 rpm 6,400 rpm 8,800 rpm WEIGHT TO POWER 5.4 lb/hp 5.2 lb/hp 6.6 lb/hp TRANSMISSION 7-speed manual 6-speed manual 7-speed twin-clutch auto.

    Two heavyweights slugging it out here. The Porsche 996 generation Turbo model features a built engine from Protomotive enlarged to 3.8 liters. It is a 6-speed manual example. The car traps 151-158 in the 1/4 mile and 225 in the mile so suffice it to say this is a fast 911 Turbo. The C6 Z06 features a built LSX block with twin 67mm turbochargers. It is also a 6-speed manual. Tuning is through an AEM Standalone. The first run is from 60-180 miles per hour so they definitely stretch their legs. It is a solid door to door run with the Porsche edging slightly before shutting down. The second result is very similar with the Corvette having an initial lead and the Porsche making up some ground to slightly edge. The cars are very evenly matched. These are driver's races.
