    • Gintani wins the BMW M / Mercedes AMG class with the BimmerBoost.com supercharged E92 M3 at October 2013 Shift-S3ctor - Gintani takes first and second place

      Congratulations are in order to Gintani for exceptiopnal results at this past weekends roll on race event held at the Coalinga, California air strip. First place in the roll on race and trap speed categories for BMW and Mercedes vehicles went to BimmerBoost.com's own Vortech YSI supercharged built motor E92 DCT M3 built by Gintani. Second place in the roll on race category went to Gintani's S85 V10 Vortech supercharged E63 M6.

      The runway is shorter than in the previous events meaning trap speeds would not be equal due to a distance difference. The BimmerBoost.com E92 M3 has had its share of teething pains with the bigger YSI blower and complications arising from the level of torque/power with the dual clutch transmission but Gintani was able on a stock BMW DCT transmission to exceed the competition with a 173.07 mile per hour trap speed. This made for the only E9X chassis in the 170's and the next closest car (ESS-Tuning supercharged) was in the mid 160 range. A clear, distinct difference and victory.

      Transmission and traction issues prevented further improvement but improvement will come as new transmission parts from Germany are on their way in order for the YSI supercharged E92 to be able to put all its power down and even increase boost from the supercharger. Here is a third party's take on how vehicles did at the event at certain power levels:

      "Most 800rwhp cars were trapping about 160 (they moved the cones and everyone was trapping about 10mph+ slower than last year). I was at 165mph when the head lifted and I still had plenty of runway.. If I had to guess that trap would have been about 175mph. That was a rolling start at about 50-60mph at the cones. The 800rwhp cars were trapping 160 from a dig way back against the edge of the runway. Which I estimate put them probably at about 80mph when they hit the cones."

      Most of the cars in the 800 whp range hit the 160 mile per hour trap range putting this performance level in perspective. Additionally, the dual clutch transmission shows just how efficiently it makes use of power trapping higher than cars at similar power levels. Are dual clutch transmissions a distinct performance advantage? Absolutely.

      A strong turbocharged E46 M3 at a higher power level than the BimmerBoost.com E92 M3 ran 165 mile per hour traps. Showing not only can the E92 M3 run with turbocharged E46 M3's, it can beat them. A Lamborghini Aventador in attendance was running in the 150 trap range showing just how potent aftermarket upgraded German cars have become.

      Congratulations to Gintani for a well deserved victory that has been a long time coming. Persistence and perseverance are the themes of the day. People may try to bring you down but ultimately it is up to you whether you give up. What you see here ladies and gentlemen is the result of consistent hard work which brings with it the fruits of that labor.

      Oh, and what about the second place Gintani E63 M6? It features a DCT transmission swap paired to a supercharged S85 V10. Expect more details on this car in a dedicated article. Pictures below (no video as the cell phone video simply does not show anything in enough detail):

        This is great. Congrats Sticky and Gintani for pulling this off, it's only the beginning of many more records.

        Congrats again Sticky enjoy it ! But DCT swapped S/C s85 :-0 that's just nuts can't believe they got the dct to work with the car. So when you get a proven dct upgrade to handle your full boost I'm guessing we'll see a built Dct built S85 YSI M6 that will be nutso.

        That's a pretty good guess!

        Yeah certainly seems like it. It's a good thing that you're able to promote them a bit on here, they need it.

        Glad to see it performed Joe.

        Hope to see it at the next event on full boost.

        Same here! Also can't wait to see what she puts down on full boost.

        Thanks.

        Hoping some of the people who said I had no chance or doubted get to experience it.

        Thanks.
        900+ at the wheels does not seem far fetched based on what data we already have. Extrapolating the 773 dyno out to redline easily puts you at 800+whp. With more boost this will do mean things to unsuspecting opponents. What a monster of a car Sticky. Congratulations to you and Gintani.

        As much hate as there has been about this, the car that Gintani and you developed is the one to beat in this segment at the moment. The haters know this im sure.

        I think that's a good ballpark. I'm not sure if people even understand how much stronger it can get. It's already a beast, hard to even fathom this kind of power. I know I need to experience it for myself that's for sure.

        I've waited patiently you could say...

        It's also not as heavy as people make it out to be.

        They way this car will continue to pull in the higher gears as the RPM climbs will strait up embarrass people. The secret is all in those last few hundred rpm. Most cars do not build torque progressively until redline. This plus the DCT=win.

        While yes a turbo S54 is a torque monster, I seriously doubt the total area under the curve is much more than your car (not hard to believe considering the redline of the S65). When your car is pushing 185+ in the half mile the people who dont understand the mathematics will finally get it.

        "But... but... but... my torques" will probably be mumbled a lot.
