    • Race Video: Tuned CLK550 vs. JB4 335

      Well, here we go, finally, we have a race involving BB member blkclk550. After 30+ pages of keybord warfare races took place. Now, we are told the 335 was on a 100 octane map. Blaizon, the 335 owner, said he would run a 93 octane map. The CLK does pretty well seemingly getting the jump each time and holding it. The cars seem pretty evenly matched with the JB4 having a slight top end advantage. The commentary by whomever filmed was humorous but we could do without it. Either way, look at the vids and decide for yourself.

        what was the camera car? he seemed to be a bit faster than both..
        The camera car was me. It wasn't a bit faster it was a hell of a lot faster then everyone that was with us. Ask John we did a couple 2nd gear rolls = ) there's a vid of me runnin the benz, and he just gets destroyed bad. I wonder if he will post that vid up....

        I can drive unlike that 335i that went like 2 cars after you took off. and car traps 118-120 with the stock x pipe. If yours can do that then we'll be close.

        Good runs and finally nice to see them happen.


        But one question, why does it look like the 335 starts 1/2 car behind and takes off like 2 seconds later each time?

        That is correct, I didn't want to brake boost.

        by the looks of the video you were in D/DS and punched it after the 3rd honk - let the car slowly downshift, then take off amirite? You'll lose 2 cars off the bat this way.

        From what I see in the vids the Benz started ahead of the 335 in both races and maybe jumped the gun.

        I'm a 6mt. I would get wheelspin from a 30 punch since I was in 1st short shift into 2nd and play catchup. The clk had better traction at that speed than I. A 45 roll would work out better for me since I could be well into 2nd.

        are you sure? have you trapped that in your car, or going off of what someone else has done?

        There is only one vid of me racing the benz and I destroyed him. Besides the focus wasn't on me last nite. I was destroying everything that pulled up next to me. Ask Blaizon I ran him from a 2nd gear roll and ask him what happened. Like I said I'm not taking anything away from his car but full bolt ons and meth wouldn't make that ground up I put on him.

        He needs RB Turbos to make it a fair race, I'm sure he would agree with me. But I'm still on baby boost its nothin. I can't wait to turn it up to 8 pounds.

        I disagree, i think he just needs full bolt-ons and meth. Rb's i think will be too much for you
