    These wheels weigh 11-12 lbs per wheel. Everything else might as well be made of lead! At $2k per wheel, they are also an unbelievably good deal. I've ordered a set for my E63. Between these wheels and my Girodisc rotors, I will be dropping over 22 lbs of unsprung weight at each corner!

    The 991 GT3 RS running from a roll is something we have all seen before. It's certainly a stout car but it is built for the track. The aerodynamics slow it down due to increased drag but the low curb weight (roughly 400 pounds less than the E92 335i), rear wheel drive layout, and high revving 4.0 liter flat-6 make for an efficient package. The GT3 RS is slower than a rear wheel drive Huracan from a roll. It did beat a tuned SL600 from a dig which is something an N54 on upgraded stock housings is capable of as well. What about this particular 335i in the video? It gets pulled right off the line as if it was in the wrong gear or has the stock housing turbo upgrade with the worst lag in the world. It does finally come back strong up top but with all the torque down low the N54 has with a turbo upgrade the driver didn't seem to have it where he should have on the tach at the start of the race considering the terrible start. + Palm Turbos Stage 1 + MHD Mappad by BQ Tuning + Supersprint catback X-Pipe + VTT Inlets + Intercooler från KL Racing + Ultimate Racing downpipes without catalysts + Walbro 455 pump + 200cell Magnaflow sportcatalysts Porsche 911 GT3 RS is stock

    Getting close to the 11's from a factory 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo with bolt on modifications is definitely impressive but you already know the AMG M133 2.0 liter is a hell of a motor. AMS with their bolt on Alpha modifications managed a 12.168 @ 114.53. What are the modifications? An Alpha Performance heat exchanger, auxiliary heat exchanger, upgraded air filter and intake, downpipe, and Alpha tune. The total bill for those modifications? $4899.75. Not exactly cheap but there are other value options for the platform. The point ultimately is that you can run 12 flat with just basic mods on the 45 AMG models.

    All good things must come to an end but fret not driving enthusiasts! Arguably the best all around enthusiast tire on the market is getting even better. Say goodbye to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and hello to the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S. Michelin seems to be borrowing their naming from Porsche (though notice the 4 and S are separated). Many believe the Pilot Suport Sport is the best tire on the market and it does dominates comparison tests. While it's relatively new it was introduced four years ago. What are the changes? Well, the pattern and sidewall are a bit different and no doubt the composition is as well. Beyond that we do not know much about it other than it is set to be the new all around tire king and it has big shoes to fill. Apparently wet and dry performance is better and the tires will last 30,000+ miles. The tire won't launch until March 2017 and even then it will only fit 19 and 20 inch wheel sizes initially. It will be a while before it fully phases out the Pilot Super Sport.

    Here is a Pure Stage 2 turbo upgraded BMW F13 M6 S63TUV8 doing some work. Easy work really as none of the cars in the video pose much of a challenge. That is a testament to how stout this upgrade is and just how powerful an S63TU with a turbo upgrade is as well. Run 1 vs. VTT N54 Not sure you can call this one a race. You can barely see the 335i in the M6's mirrors. Run 2 vs. modded C6 Z06 The mod list on this one is unknown. Not great recording here by the passenger but the M6 decisively wins. Run 3 vs. Renntech tuned S63 convertible with M157 turbo upgrade The M157 is certainly a stout powerplant but keep in mind it is in a very heavy car. The S63 Coupe is already 4700 pounds and the convertible will add a couple hundred to that. The S63 gets on the gas early but the M157 torque down low helps as well. Still, the M6 runs it down without issue and passes easily. Clearly it's a much faster car. Run 4 vs. Pure Stage 2 upgraded F82 M4 S55 Poor filming again due to the M4 being on the driver's side but you can still see the M6 pull ahead. The M4 at least hangs in there decently compared to some of the other cars. There is a final run with a C5 but it's not much of a run at all. Basically, what you learn here is that an M6 with the Pure Stage 2 upgrade is a beast if you didn't know that already.

    So appearantly the EPA contacted VP and they're going to have to reformulate it. I heard this from a well known shop on Long Island but no public statement has been made yet. Thought I'd throw out an early warning. BUT I can't be 100% sure it's true but this shop is reliable.

    Once upon a time a Swede named Gustav headed a website known as M5bored. He would post various race videos as promotion over and over to build up interest and then sell the board. The thing is, fanboys would use these videos as evidence of superiority of one car over another. Without any data you don't truly know what is going on. As is the case in the video posted the other day where the GT3 RS gets a big lead on the 335i with upgraded turbos. BimmerBoost speculated the car was in the wrong gear but some fanboys stated the Porsche is just superior and lighter and blah blah blah. Low and behold BimmerBoost was e-mailed the rematch where the 335i starts in the correct gear. The GT3 RS still jumps but the race goes as it should be this time around: So why is this Gustav fellow at these runway events only posting the videos showing cars in a certain light? Well, in the case of the GT3 RS it is because he is using his friend's GT3 RS to make additional promotional race videos and doesn't want to upset him. It's why you don't see a lot of content showing a different outcome because Swedes are sensitive people. Let this be a lesson in how easy it is for results to be misleading without data. 335i: + Palm Turbos Stage 1 + MHD Mappad by BQ Tuning + Supersprint catback X-Pipe + VTT Inlets + Intercooler från KL Racing + Ultimate Racing downpipes without catalysts + Walbro 455 pump + 200cell Magnaflow sportcatalysts Porsche 911 GT3 RS is stock

    Very cool race to see here and the S55 ECU flash tuned BMW F80 M3 is going up against very stout competition in the McLaren 650S. To give you an idea of how capable the 650S a BoostAddict member took his stock MP4-12C to the strip which is slightly less powerful and ran 10.6 @ 135. The 650S is a very fast car and considerably lighter than the F80 M3. Even in stock form it should be favored over a bolt on tuned M3. We do not know the full specs for the M3 here but it has an ECU flash and assume downpipes along with ethanol, meth, or race fuel. Are the turbos upgraded? It sure seems like it. The M3 wins the first race. It pulls as the race goes on which just shouldn't happen. The second race however has the 650S get a better launch and it destroys the M3. The slip doesn't reflect the second result as it shows the M3 as trapping higher and being close to even running 10.5 as well: Where is the second slip where the 650S dominates? Conveniently left out.

    The main enemy of the current Tesla range is weight. If you go for a the P100D model it weighs just under 5000 pounds. Obviously, it is still very quick despite that weight but imagine if you shaved a bunch of weight off of the car. Well, that is what this person did. They stuck the rear wheel drive P85 drivetrain in an 818 kit car. What does it weigh? Well, the weight isn't stated but considering this is just using one motor and running a higher trap speed than the new P100D with two electric motors you can probably surmise it weighs well over a thousand pounds less. The future of hot rodding will be modifying electrics. What sucks though is it will amount to basically amount to adding more voltage and shaving weight. Still, certainly an impressive result here.

    Perhaps stock is a bit misleading here as there a couple things to be aware of. The tires being the biggest change as the car is running Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tires. Besides the tires the car is completely stock making this laptime truly amazing. The modification that really seems to make the difference is the driver mod. The person at the wheels is Manuel Metzger. Not only does he drive for Team Black Falcon he was part of the winning team at the 2016 Nurburgring 24 Hours. Suffice it to say, this guy can drive and knows the track. It shows in the 7:22 laptime which is set with traffic. This is an incredible run. We already knew the AMG GT S was very capable in the corners from MotorTrend's best Driver's Car 2016 test at Laguna Seca but to see it perform at this level on the 'Ring is truly spectacular. To give you an idea of how quick this is a Ferrari 488 GTB was timed at 7:21 and the last Porsche 911 GT2 RS (997) managed a 7:24 on a full lap. This is a BTG (Bridge to Gantry) lap but very, very quick and with a tune this GT-S is going to be a monster.

    You know how we're told red light cameras are for our own safety? Well, they aren't. The truth of the matter is red light cameras are a huge business and they are forced on us to create a revenue stream. If it really was about saving lives why are private companies bribing politicians to get them installed? That is what Redflex did. Their former CEO Karen Finley was just sentenced to 14 months in prison (should be longer). Why? This is why: In order to get Redflex cameras installed in more locations Finley bribed those politicians she felt would expand and retain red light camera use. Judge Michael H. Watson had this to say: This is nothing new. Companies have always bribed politicians and likely always will. Defense contracts go for billions upon billions of dollars and the defense companies have strong lobbies always pushing for more 'defense' spending. Unfortunately, this corrupt CEO is one of many and the politicians who received the donations should be thrown in jail along with Karen Finley but it won't happen. This system is broken: Source
