    Hey Guys! I've got a GLE63S currently on a renntech tune downpipes and bmc filters, I've done before and after dyno runs on a mustang and got 490 hp and 517 ft-lb and after I got 574 hp and 684ft-lb. runs were on 60/40 mixture of 91 pump gas and vp101. Im looking into a stage II turbo upgrade and bigger intercooler/pump too as the next step.

    These Tesla drag race videos are getting kind of boring especially when they constantly show the Tesla in the best light possible. Rear wheel drive competition on street rubber of course will struggle against the all electric all wheel drive torque monster. Fortunately this time around we see a car that is well known for its off the line prowess, the 911 Turbo. This is a GIAC tuned 997.2 model with bolt ons. The Porsche rips the Tesla off the line but the Model S hangs in pretty well. The result is a quicker and faster 10.503 @ 127.93 from the Porsche and 10.861 @ 121.77 from the Tesla. What is important to note is that the 911 Turbo needs to be modified to get the win here and in 1500+ density altitude it will suffer a drop off in performance whereas the Tesla which is not relying on air will not.

    If the spacebar is not working for you after you quote someone that is due to a bug with the default editor and Chrome. Google is not addressing the issue and neither is Vbulletin. They just close threads on the topic and threatened to ban me if I bring up the issue again. Such great support for a paying customer. :rolleyes: Anyway, all we can do is work around it for now. If you do not quote by clicking quote but instead highlight to quote it works fine. If you do quote and have the issue click the 'A' in the upper left hand corner to switch your editor. No issues with the classic editor.

    You're here because you love horsepower. Going fast is what we're about. There is going fast and being reckless however. 300+ kph (over 186 miles per hour) on public streets and in a turn while dodging traffic easily qualifies as reckless. Cars of course offer more protection but also can inflict more damage on innocent bystanders. However you might feel a couple of these guys paid the ultimate price for taking it too far on public streets. It never hurts to offer up a reminder that there are consequences to insane speed.

    This may be the best carbon fiber rim on the market if you take into account weight, pricing, and strength. A couple months back BoostAddict posted about the lightest carbon fiber wheels on the market from a company named ESE Carbon. We have yet to see anyone run their wheels or any independent testing. Also, there are concerns about strength with a full carbon fiber rim. Forgeline and Emergent are taking a bit of a different approach. The barrel is carbon fiber from Emergent but Forgeline provides their forged wheel expertise as the center is metal, not carbon fiber. Plus, with a name like Forgeline Motorsports involved you know these wheels are the real deal and can withstand the rigors of motorsport let alone street driving. The rims will be available in two styles in 20 and 21 inch fitments. The question is, how much money? Also, what do they weigh? These are rather important details that are omitted. Either way, more carbon wheel options are coming onto the market and that is a good thing for all enthusiasts. FORGELINE ANNOUNCES NEW CARBON+FORGED WHEELS WITH EMERGENT CARBON RIMS New Carbon+Forged Series wheels offer unparalleled style and performance. DAYTON, Ohio - Racing wheel expert Forgeline Motorsports has entered an exciting new partnership with EMERGENT(tm) Carbon Wheels and launched its Carbon+Forged Series, a new line of two-piece carbon fiber and forged aluminum ultra-high performance wheels. The company that is known for its unyielding commitment to technology and performance innovation is taking another leap forward with the new wheel line that combines weight-optimized CNC machined forged aluminum centers with Emergent's revolutionary proprietary carbon fiber barrels. The innovative made-to-order wheel series delivers the ultimate in technological advancement, exclusive styling and unprecedented lightweight performance. Forgeline's Carbon+Forged wheels are engineered to an entirely new set of appearance and performance standards, featuring super lightweight carbon fiber barrels that utilize a high-density carbon fiber bundle, a high-clarity resin system and an unusually large carbon weave pattern. These high-tech characteristics create rims that are visually distinctive and 42% lighter than equivalent aluminum wheels. The weight reduction is achieved in the wheel's most critical outer perimeter where the greatest reduction in unwanted inertia is achieved for real-world improvements in acceleration, braking, cornering, ride quality, NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness), driver/passenger comfort and fuel economy. The superior quality carbon fiber barrels of Forgeline's Carbon+Forged wheels are engineered and tested to deliver industry-leading levels of fatigue strength, impact and damage resistance and deflection stiffness. Tested by an independent automotive industry laboratory, they have proven to be incredibly strong and robust, exceeding all existing SAE and TUV test specifications and surpassing the AK-LH 08 Radial Impact Test standard. The first wheels to be released from Forgeline's new Carbon+Forged Series are the lightweight racing-inspired CF201 (featuring a five V-spoke design and aggressive I-beam machining details) and the style-conscious CF202 (featuring a unique directional split-5 spoke design). Available in 20- and 21-inch fitments, both wheels are uniquely engineered for exclusive modern sports cars, including the Corvette Z06, Ferrari 458/488, Audi R8, Acura NSX, Lamborghini Huracan/Aventedor, Porsche 918/GT3/GT3RS, as well as Aston Martin, McLaren, Mercedes, and BMW models. The new Carbon+Forged wheels and other Forgeline wheels are available through a nationwide network of Forgeline partners. For more information, visit forgeline.com or call 1-800-886-0093.

    Road and Track is wrong here. Not that the NSX is not a good car but is it really the best performance car of 2017? Absolutely not. As we saw last month the NSX struggles to top the aging (and cheaper) Nissan GTR. The NSX just is not what the original was. At 3868 pounds the NSX is heavier than every car in this comparison except for the Mercedes-AMG C63 S and the Nissan GT-R Nismo: It's as tested price is the highest of the entire group. For the most money you expect more than it delivers. It isn't the quickest. It isn't the most powerful. It isn't the lightest. It isn't the most involving. It just is not the best performance car out of this group for the money. You know what car is? The Corvette Grand Sport. It has the lowest starting price out of every car on the list and where does it end up when they test them around the track? In second place, ahead of the NSX. I don't care what fancy technology the NSX has the fact the Grand Sport has less power and outperforms it around the track with a rear wheel drive layout at a fraction of the cost puts it above everyone else. The car isn't a hybrid. It doesn't have a dual clutch transmission. It doesn't even use turbos. What Chevrolet did with the Grand Sport is jaw dropping from a performance perspective which is what this comparison is supposed to be about. There are of course other cars included. The M4 GTS is just an abject failure. What is the point of continuing to talk about it? The only way the M4 GTS is beating other performance cars in your garage is if you don't have any other modern performance cars in your garage. The Mercedes-AMG C63 S is uncomfortably close to it despite being much heavier (and much cheaper). The R8 V10 Plus is grouped in with the top 5 and after that point there is distinct separation. The Evora is praised for its handling and feedback but you can't have a performance car of the year that performs worse than the entire field. It just can't keep up. Look at these results: The NSX and the GT-R are basically neck and neck. Yet, both are behind the Corvette. The Porsche 911 Turbo S is out front and frankly deserves the win more than the NSX does. It's quicker, faster, lighter, and it handles better. It even manages a better 0-60 without a hybrid drivetrain. Sometimes simpler is just better in a performance environment as the Corvette and the 911 Turbo show. The NSX does not deserve this win. When you read Road and Track's reasoning it feels more like they are picking the NSX to defend the next generation of sports cars which will increasingly incorporate hybrid technology. We aren't there yet. This is about right now. Right now, there are better performance cars on the market than the NSX. Period.

    ESS-Tuning announced work on their supercharger solution for the M156 V8 a long time ago. Their kit underwent several revisions going from a TVS roots blower now to a twin screw unit. It was officially announced as available at the end of July. Since then BenzBoost has been waiting for results and now we have have some to share. This W204 C63 AMG sedan picked up 178 horsepower at the wheels and 161 lb-ft of torque at the wheels: That certainly is a solid peak power and torque increase but what is up with the torque curve from 3100 to 4800 rpm? There is a large dip that either the tuner or ESS-Tuning will need to explain. A positive displacement blower should not have that kind of torque dip in the mid-range. The peak numbers obviously are not as high as the competition but keep in mind this is a Mustang dyno which is reading conservatively as the baseline figures show. Dynojet numbers no doubt will come soon.

    Can you honestly say you can't relate to this? After a weekend of partying FIAT heir Lapo Elkann (grandson of FIAT founder Gianni Agnelli) was arrested in New York due to faking his own kidnapping and attempting to extort a ransom. As it turns out, you can rack up a rather large tab during a drug filled binge with hookers. How large? $10,000 which should be chump change for him. The problem is his family cut him off. Why? Because of too much partying with hookers. I mean, if you can't spend your weekends snorting lines off a hookers ass what is the point of being an heir? Apparently Lapo did not understand the way for spoiled brats to make money in this country is to release a sex tape and then become independently wealthy. Have we learned nothing from the respectable success stories that are the Hiltons and Kardashians? Running up a bill you can't pay partying with a transgender escort is simply not the way to go. This is not the first time this has happened as back in 2005 Elkann barely survived a heroin and cocaine overdose when again he was partying with tranny prostitutes. You can't make this stuff up: Life must be pretty hard for this guy. Having a cushy executive job at FIAT due to nepotism and waiting to inherit a family fortune is just too tough of a life for some people. Source

    Who saw this coming? The most interesting part of the 2016 Formula 1 season was watching Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton duke it out for the driver's championship. Rosberg ended up winning but it was a battle until the very end. Perhaps that battle drained Rosberg's energy? His statement is as follows: Rosberg is still under contract and signed a two year extension recently. He is leaving a lot of money on the table but he already has too much money to care. The rivalry with Lewis Hamilton seems to have taken its toll: He retires on top. Not a bad way to go out. The question now is who will challenge Hamilton?
