    BoostAddict reported what was going on behind the scenes with Dime Racing. It seems people have not been paying attention or simply dismissed the reports. Remember when Dime Racing was taken to court by Weistec? BoostAddict posted the entire complaint with further details. The court case was not the only warning sign. Dime was caught on social media calling Weistec performance results their own. Furthermore, they used a Weistec dynograph on a Mercedes forum to promote their products. Those involved with Dime used to be involved with Weistec. This is exactly what was posted to inform people: 1. Steve Atneyel is no longer with Weistec Engineering. 2. Murad Shuqom/Rod Shegem is not involved with Weistec Engineering. 3. Steve Atneyel is a convicted felon. 4. The two individuals named above are involved with Dime Consulting. 5. Dime Consulting has contacted various BenzBoost vendors and attempted to sell products (likely Weistec products) and get money through backchannels. 6. Steve Atneyel and Murad Shuqom allegedly funneled large sums of money from Weistec. 7. Parts were ordered outside the normal Weistec accounting channels. 8. The full complaint against these individuals and Dime Consulting is outlined below. Why would you bring your car to a convicted felon in the first place? Why wouldn't you do a simple google search to see the evidence and allegations against Rod Shegem: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0B8gxEQ3-8LagSFRmMEJpdTM3ekk How about a quick search revealing http://rod-shegem.com ? Furthermore, BoostAddict can say that before all of this went south Rod made a request to scrub his name from this website. It was odd, but at the time there were no red flags so his name was edited out of early Weistec articles. Hey, BoostAddict reported what nobody else did and did its job. So what you see in the video below should not surprise you. Long story short, Dime Racing made promises to this Huracan owner they could not deliver. Originally, the owner wanted go with VF-Engineering and in hindsight he should have. Things started to unravel quickly: It's your classic delay strategy. Take the money stall, and hope someone else comes in with more money to keep funding operations. Feels like a Ponzi scheme, doesn't it? The problem is Dime has people on social media and on forums (a certain Mercedes forum is complicit in deleting complaints and having moderators help cover up issues which could have warned people) constantly pushing their products. Notice they stay away from this forum though? Maybe that's because I have met all of these people since before this all started and know what happened throughout the saga? This guy learned a lesson the hard way. It sucks. At least he owned up to it and posted his story. BoostAddict does not believe Dime Racing will be able to continue to fund operations for all that much longer if what we hear behind the scenes is true. Then again, Rod Shegem isn't in jail for all his money laundering so who knows if they will continue to weasel their way through keeping the lights on. BoostAddict.com in an odd way is thrilled its reporting is confirmed as 100% accurate. Some people in this industry still care about their credibility.

    Today I took RedGutz roll racing at Pocono Raceway at Slipstream Racing Events East Coast Call Out. Roll racing was from under 65 mph start 1600 feet down the main straight. My car consistently ran 152 and 153 mpg traps with the best two runs at 153 mph. A Cobb Stage 1 991.1 Turbo S running race gas had a best trap of 145 mph. Our race is on here.My mods at the time of the race: Champion Turbo 68 mm VTG turbo upgrade, Champion Motorsports Intercoolers, Tubi Catless race exhaust, GIAC tune, BMC filter, Champion Motorsports race diverter valves. Car was running race gas (Sunoco GT 260 plus) on race gas tune file.Here are my GoPro videos:991.1 Turbo S with Cobb Stage 1 running race gas (MS109) M6https://youtu.be/qDS1WyG0ceYModded F10 M5https://youtu.be/XSQO-_feGukModded 996 Turbohttps://youtu.be/StYoERySm1EModded Vettehttps://youtu.be/OOk0it8Xv4QModded GTOhttps://youtu.be/GYNZ9pOs4K8

    You know the Porsche 991.1 Turbo S in this video from the other day when owner @sdg1871 posted a video of his car destroying everything he raced. The Champion Motorsports 68mm VTG turbo upgraded Porsche with GIAC Stage IV tuning is a beast. If it is a beast what do you call the UGR Huracan that makes it look like it is standing still in the video below? The acceleration is so incredibly fast the video almost looks fake. Mother of...

    Hey everybody, I'm happy to announce that our M177 stage 2.5 turbo upgrade testing has began. The first tests were done just on turbos, downpipes and intakes. We will tune the ECU and soon we'll have more results. Please note this is still a beta stage, in about 8 to 10 weeks we will have billet 7-blade compressor wheels, lightweight shaft and turbine that will fit on the OEM center section and housings, making this a bolt-on turbo upgrade! This was achieved on 93 octane fuel, at the stock boost levels (Peak 17.8 psi drop to around 12 psi) without any transmission tune nor upgrade. The car has OEM cat-back exhaust, stock watercoolers (Intercoolers) and stock ECU tune. How about 636 WHP and 699 lb-ft of torque? This car is amazing on the street!

    You would know it as a Chev SS. 6.2L supercharged LSA. SC pulley and a tune(?). M3 stock. Not a real race. Lights went green, foot down. Pretty even. M3 backed out to not end up like these guys: http://www.bimmerboost.com/content.php?8597-Don-t-be-Stupid-5-BMW-s-(F80-M3-F82-M4-E92-335-etc-)-impounded-after-street-racing-accusation-in-NC-trooper-suspended-and-resigns

    Hey guys, I'm looking to put some slicks on the M5 and am looking for fitment guidance. Rim size/offset and tire size suggestions would be great. Thanks!

We will of course be very easy to interact with via email or other major forums/Facebook. We appreciate our history here, but we feel it's time to move on. See you at the track! Thanks! VTT Crew
