    Sport Auto got their hands on two of the world's best track cars and took them to the Hockenheim in Germany for a laptime comparison. You may remember that the Lamborghini Huracan Performante briefly held the Nurburgring production car laptime record. That was until the 911 GT2 RS took the Nurburgring record with an insane 6:47.3 laptime. How do they fare on a smaller track going head to head in the same conditions? Like this: The GT2 RS time is out of this world. It did not just beat every other car Sport Auto tested it crushed them. That includes the Huracan Performante which is the second quickest they have ever tested. Porsche did not pull any punches. They set out to build the world's top track car and they succeeded.

    Some good natured ribbing took place when Weistec recently ran 10's tune only in their W213 E63 AMG S. APR noticed the run of course and mentioned lining up against an APR tuned RS7. Weistec shot back with asking how big of a head start APR would need. You can read the exchange here: This of course got us comparing times for both platforms for fun. The truth is the German mid-size sport sedan class is more similar than it has ever been. The RS7 and E63 both have similar 4.0 liter turbo V8 motors, both are all wheel drive, and both weigh about the same. It is important to note that the RS7 does have a significant tune only lead. APR gets 10.4 @ 132 with just their Stage I tune out of the RS7. The truth is the top 1/4 mile car from the previous generation with just software alone was the RS7. It's ironic that the machine with the smallest engine in the class topped 5.5 liter and 4.4 liter rivals from Mercedes and BMW respectively. The C7 RS7 looks like it will still be the tune only champ compared to the new F90 M5 and W213 E63 S. Weistec had a good response: With upgraded turbos the RS7 does not stand much of a chance. Speaking of which, why is the RS7 seemingly stuck tuning stock turbochargers? There still is little in the way of results for 4.0 TFSI's with aftermarket turbo upgrades yet the car has been on the market for years now. The M177 certainly looks like it has the edge when it comes to the aftermarket in that respect. We will see what happens and you can count on BenzBoost, AudiBoost, and BoostAddict to bring you all the tuning developments on the respective engine platforms.

    RENNtech is proud to release their ECU Upgrade for the 213 - E63 S AMG 4MATIC+ Maximum Power Output: 773 HP 778 LB-FT @ crank 665 whp 669 wtq @ wheel Gains up to: +82 HP +84 LB-FT 0-60 mph: 2.79 sec 0-100 mph: 6.61 sec 60-130 mph: 8.27 sec 1/4mile: 10.88 sec @ 129mph *Performed on non-prepped asphalt and with OEM, Street-Legal and/or Non-Performance tires. Data measured with Racelogic Performance Box. *Note: Mercedes M177 engine performance when measured on the dyno obtains higher power numbers than rated from factory. Performance numbers published by MBUSA are a calculated average within a specific rpm range, which obviously result in lower power numbers than at the peak. HP and TQ gains calculated by RENNtech are always based on peak stock results measured by RENNtech and upgraded peak results measured by RENNtech. Click Here for Details

    Is anyone keeping score of how many people have been scammed or stolen from by Dime Racing up to this point? BoostAddict is doing its best but admittedly there are so many horror stories to sort through it is tough to keep track. The latest victim to come forward is Meister Werke Design + Technik or MWDesigntechnik. What happened? They ordered a very expensive Super Trofeo Race aerodynamic kit for their Huracan for roughly $30k. They were strung along and never received the kit. The money was taken of course. This comes in the wake of Dime being sued by multiple parties, Brian McLevis' Huracan horror story, ripping off Deeds Racing, oh and the Vehicle Virgins Huracan horror story. These guys sure love taking advantage of Huracan owners, eh? Easy targets with money so it makes sense from the scammer perspective. If only someone had warned people? Oh, that's right, BoostAddict did. It's a shame to read that yet another person was taken advantage of:

    The W213 Mercedes-AMG E63 S is a 10-second car tune only. As you know, Weistec released their Stage I M177 ECU tune for the new W213 E63 sedan last week. They did not just dyno it but also took the car to the track. This is the result tune only on 91 octane pump gas: Full weight and street tires. Keep in mind also this run took place at the Famoso dragstrip in California. It may be winter in California but ATCO this is not. Even with 53 degree weather density altitude was 625 feet above sea level for the run. This is obviously just the beginning for the W213 E63 S but it is already showing what it is capable of with ecu tuning. 10.849 @ 126.58 is the quickest and fastest record... for now.

    The Corvette Z06 in stock form is very potent with its 650 horsepower LT4 supercharged 6.2 liter V8. The automatic models are quicker than the manual but from a roll shift speed is not as important as top end power as you spend more time in the higher gears. Not that quick shift speeds hurt as this DCT M4 shows. What does hurt is the big wing the M4 is wearing. A ton of drag which does not help performance. Yet, despite the drag, the M4 quickly makes up ground on the Z06 and pulls. The Z06 getting a nice lead partially thanks to the instant torque from the positive displacement blower. What does the Schmiedmann Stage 4 S55 upgrade constitute? Upgraded turbos, exhaust changes, upgraded intercooler, and an E85 tune in this case. As well as an upgraded Stage IV fuel system courtesy of Fuel-It! to be able to run straight E85. A fast M4 for sure and if the Z06 intends to take it he is going to need some upgrades of his own.

    AMR Performance recently did a Stage I dyno tune for a W205 Mercedes-AMG C63 S. The S version of course has a more aggressive tune from the factory said to be good for 503 horsepower at the crank. AMR Performance got a baseline of 452 wheel horsepower from the car. The torque figure is 450 lb-ft at the wheels and it is impressive how well the torque curve holds from 2850 from 5000 rpm. So what do the numbers go to after the Stage I pump gas dyno tune? 527 wheel horsepower and 575 lb-ft of wheel torque. The torque gain is massive: It mostly comes down low but there are gains through the curve as the turbos start to run out of breath toward redline. An additional 125 lb-ft of torque at the wheels from just a Stage I tune on pump gas is a very stout gain.

    I know, I know. Most of you are going to say center lock is a pain in the ass. It is but I mean, it just looks so much better. Look: The conversion kit runs $1700 from Suncoast. Not cheap. Anyway, thoughts?
