    Came across this on another forum. It is made by a guy who is big in the subaru community (has made his own full custom ROM for the 16 bit ecu's) but it should be universal if you are just wanting to see realtime ethanol % and fuel temp via bluetooth. It won't plug directly into the ecu to adjust your tune but its not too expensive and seems handy to me! Certainly better than manually testin, guessing, or hoping that what you just bought is really E85. It would at least give you piece of mind if you want to switch to your kill map that you have exactly the amount of ethanol for your tune. It also gives a 0-5V analog output if you want to datalog. http://flexconverter.com/collections/subaru/products/universal-bluetooth-converter?variant=1652908289

    Some very fast cars in this video. It is shot from the perspective of the bolt on Gen IV Viper so unfortunately we do not get an in car view for each race but that is ok. There are several good runs here we do get to see in their full glory. The first race is a chase view between the C6 ZR1 and the procharged C7 said to be making 820 wheel horsepower with meth injection. The C6 takes the race and it is said to make 900 whp. The bolt on Gen IV Viper camera car runs the C7 next. Considering the Viper is down 200 wheel horsepower it does fairly well until the power disparity shows. The C7 is very, very quick. The bolt on Viper next takes on a UGR (Underground Racing) twin turbo Viper. As you can imagine this is a beatdown. Once the turbo Viper spools and shifts it is gone. It just takes off. The bolt on Viper camera car takes on another twin turbo Viper after this and the result is much of the same. The yellow UGR Viper runs the ZR1 next but this is a chase view unfortunately. The Viper does take the win though. The final race features a T67 Supra against the bolt on gen IV Viper camera car. This is an ugly beatdown. Frankly, the Supra is probably still spooling as this is written. Nice to see cars at various power levels like this go at it to put high horsepower in context.

    Owners of the new Mercedes-AMG W205 C63 are finally hitting the dragstrip. It is good to see real world times and numbers over magazine figures. Especially times like these which are a realistic representation of what your average driver can expect in summer heat on street tires with a stock car. 12.5 @ 119 is not exactly quick or fast and better times for the C63 will come. What it shows is this is not easy. It also shows the C63 is easily an 11 second car with drag rubber and really even street tires as a 2.4X 60 foot time is just poor traction and a bad launch. With a 1.7X 60 foot which is well within reason one can expect times to drop by over a second. BenzBoost believes the stock C63 is capable of mid to high 11's at 121-122. More details from the owner: "With a full tank of fuel, pano roof, and standard seats it weighed in at 4,065 pounds. He is not skinny but he sure is fast! I was only able to get in 2 runs last night due to track issues. It was a cool summer night and the temp was about 80 degrees. I ran 93 Fuel & Tires were around 23-24 pounds in the rear. The biggest issue is getting the car to launch properly. There is a lot of torque this car puts out. I have room for improvement but overall it was a great night. I will be running the car again and making some changes on my end and the car's end. First pass - Sport + with ESP on, Suspension in Comfort 12.679 at 117.63 MPH Second pass - Race with ESP on, Suspension in Comfort 12.506 at 119.14 MPH. I let the car do all the shifting. I did not shift gears via the paddles." People will no doubt compare these times to M3/M4 times achieved but we would like to remind everyone such comparisons are flawed due to the cars running on different days at different tracks. All direct comparisons thus far show the C63 is the faster car and it does make more power and torque. It sure is heavy though.

    Hi guys! So I'm back home after some amazing days in Nürburg. My wife and I attended the DN12 trackday. We had a great time and the car ran without problem both days. Thought I'd share some pics and videos with you guys. Here's the car ready on the trailer before the 1350 km trip down to Nürburg When we arrived in Nürburg the weather was beautiful and we did a trackwalk. I had the car corner balanced and alligned at Getspeed the day before the trackday. They also did a good check of the general condition on the car and ended up changing the front wheel bearings as well. Super friendly and skilled guys. I highly recomend them for check on your car before attending a full trackday. Darren from the trackday administrator had a good drivers briefing with us. Actually the whole first trackday went by without any crashes, that's pretty rare at the Nordschleife. My wife and I had some lovely meals at Pistenklause When you're in Nürburg you see cars that you don't see elsewhere. Like this one.. Here's a couple of pics from the track Made a video with highlights from the trip. (Hope you can see it in the US as it says on youtube that it's blocked in some countries) I've posted about my fastest lap earlier, but thought I'd share another onboard video with you as well. All in all I had the best vacation ever. Nürburg is such a unique place and if you haven't been there yet I highly recomend a visit :handgestures-thumb:
