    On paper the facelifted 911 Turbo S is favored. It has 580 horsepower to the GT3 RS 500 plus the twin turbochargers boost its torque figure to 516 lb-ft. The naturally aspirated 4.0 liter flat-6 GT3 RS on the other hand makes do with 'only' 338 lb-ft of torque. What the GT3 RS has going for it is a wider rev range meaning it is geared shorter plus it sends power to the rear wheels meaning it has lower drivetrain losses compared to the all wheel drive turbo. This also means it is lighter by a good 400 pounds. If you buy a GT3 RS to race in a straight line you bought the wrong car. The Turbo S is easier to tune and when making big power it can maintain traction. Plus it does not suffer from the same aerodynamic drag as downforce in corners is not the primary concern. The Turbo S makes easy work of the GT3 RS in similar fashion to the Huracan we saw beat up the GT3 RS recently. It seems the Huracan and the Turbo S are more of a match for each other.

    This 2017 '66 Ford GT Heritage Edition is a throwback to the 1966 Le Mans winner. This livery features a unique black and silvery stripe livery and my goodness is it beautiful. You will only see this style on Ford GT for the 2017 model year. This car may honor the 1966 No.2 Ford GT40 but it is no coincidence Ford rolled it out after their Le Mans victory this year. In similar and fitting fashion to the 1966 vehicle, Ford also went toe to toe Ferrari in 2016 and came out on top. Full details in the press release from Ford below but wow is it fun to look at. All-New 2017 Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition Pays Homage toHistoric Livery on 1966 Le Mans Winner - All-new Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition with unique black and silver-stripe livery celebrates 1966 Le Mans-winning GT40 Mark II race car driven by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon - Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition honoring historic No. 2 race car limited to 2017 model year only - Limited-edition Ford GT features exclusive race-number graphics, and unique interior colors, materials and appointments DEARBORN, Mich., June 27, 2016 – The all-new 2017 Ford GT will be available in a limited-edition Heritage theme honoring the GT40 Mark II driven to victory by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon at Le Mans in 1966 – part of the historic 1-2-3 Ford GT sweep. The car will feature unique interior and exterior color themes, and an exclusive wheel finish. "Celebrating the anniversary of Ford's historic victories at Le Mans has always been a part of the return of the Ford GT," said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president, product development, and chief technical officer. "The 2017 Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition is a stunning tribute to the car that kicked off Ford's string of Le Mans victories in 1966." The Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition features a Shadow Black exterior in either gloss or matte finish with silver stripes and exposed carbon fiber package. The car sports Frozen White #2 hood and door graphics, and 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels in a gold satin clearcoat with black lug nuts. The interior of the limited edition model wraps the Ford GT carbon-fiber seats in Ebony leather, with pillowed inserts and plow-through stitching, and the seats' head restraints and the steering wheel are debossed with the Ford GT logo. The instrument panel, pillars and headliner also features an Ebony-leather wrap, with gold appliqués on the instrument panel, the seat's X-brace and shift paddles. Like the 1966 race car, the steering wheel is leather wrapped, with seat belts featuring a unique blue webbing. Rounding out the modifications to the Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition are a unique serialized identification plate, the #2 interior door graphic, and exposed matte carbon fiber door sills, air register pods and center console. Garen Nicoghosian, exterior design manager for the car, says the team set out to highlight where it all started with the Ford GT. "While the looks are distinctly based on the GT40 Mark II race car," he says, "we've accentuated new styling cues to provide a modern interpretation." The Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition can be viewed at using the configuration tool. Limited quantities will be available for the 2017 model year only.

    Interesting run here as two tuners put forth S63TU's they tuned against each other with the winner taking $10k. Evotech apparently has a reputation in Europe as not wanting to race unless it is for money otherwise it is a waste of their time. The funny thing is they were not willing to race for $10k but instead agreed to a $1500 run. What happened to the confidence Evotech? Frankly, BimmerBoost does not have too much faith in Evotech's claims as they seem to be exaggerated anyway. The F10 M5 camera car is tuned by BimmerBoost member @lfelunden who has not yet decided on a name for his new tuning company. The M6 Gran Coupe is heavier than the standard M6 so weights are pretty even here. It is surprising how easily the M5 pulls considering both cars are bolt on tuned and if racing for money one would assume at their best. No comment from Oliver Neumann the owner at Evotech at this time although we are told the race loser paid up.

    Well, it seems Chevy is copying Ford yet again. Ford got good press from enthusiasts by offering a factory line lock on the Mustang GT. Chevrolet decided it was a good idea (it is a great idea) to offer a line lock on the Camaro ZL1 which will make it easy to heat the rear tires. Considering the torque output of the supercharged LT4 V8 the only way one is going to get traction off the line when launching is with prepped tires. That means a nice, big, hot, and sticky burnout. Obviously it will pay the greatest dividends with drag rubber. This is very cool of GM which also will not void warranties for track days. A day at the drag strip counts as a track day, right?

    I can upload 10 more videos of this taking place, there is some other videos floating around where the M5 gets pulled by 2-3 cars, the owner found out his left intercooler didn't get any coolant, which made it heatsoak very quick. This video is after he got it replaced.

    Agreed. Matt is probably a nice guy, but he is foremost an actor, and not a presentor. Every line comes out forced. Presenting does not come natural to him. As for Evans, his car clips are like scratching a chalkboard with your nails, and the presenting isn't much better. I can only watch the show 10 minutes at the time, and look the next part on another day when I feel strong enough for it. Most of the time I end up fast forwarding most of it. Which is something I never ever did when the previous team was presenting Top Gear. Chris Harris testing the M2 yesterday was also a dissapointment. That could have been so much better.
