• 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):

        Your a funny guy. I could set you up with many races out here but they would never happen. Lets just end this because it's getting childish. Get your car done make sure it's perfectly working so there no excuses then run JCart and post what happens. Good luck.

        You're getting childish with the my friend can beat you up stuff. Just sit back and watch. I'll do whatever I please with my car it is not of any of your concern. You worry about getting to a level people actually pay attention to because you're in my thread on my board and not the other way around.

        I'll just play with these in the meantime:

        You're right. You're like a car accident on the side of the road. You have to slow down and look.

        If I choose to drive it, or someone else, it still doesn't change that you can't line up next to me without embarrassing yourself no matter who is in the driver's seat.

        Winning events is like a car accident? Interesting.

        I think it's more accurate to say I have a lot more coming for you to get mad at. Just be patient, don't blow your whole hate load at once.

        This may be the most childish forum I've ever seen.
        Love it.

        Why do you keep barking little doggie?

        I embarrass myself by having the number 1 E92 M3 on the planet and owning a BMW Performance Forum?

        You embarrass yourself by having to talk about other's accomplishments and cars, not your own.

        Congrats Sticky, I did not know the car was ready. If you are interested in drag racing my CLK I will be out there in two weeks. I am doing a private Famoso rental for a final shakedown before hauling the car out to what should be an epic event at MIR in mid November. I think after all the years of us bickering back and forth we should finally line the cars up. If you would like to be my guest out at Famoso I will extend an invitation to you and the Gintani crew, rental is on me. CLK is trapping at 118 in the 1/8 last time out and its making a couple hundred more hp now, full NHRA approved cage and parachute. Let me know, it would be an epic match-up.

        No timeline as in a little over two weeks I'll be at SEMA and the car needs the transmission to be completed. If you wish to coordinate with me feel free but if it does not line up I'll come to you.

        Provided the trans is ready I'll gladly accept the invitation and be there.

        If you could get out to MIR you should set a blistering e/t. November 16th is the date of the MIR event.

        In between SEMA and the LA Auto Show, tight squeeze. I might be able to though. Maybe I'll make it an early Bday gift.

        Let's shoot for Famoso first.

        It would be right before SEMA. I am going to be at SEMA as well, then driving the rig east all the way to MIR.
