    • 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 are you talking about man? This makes no sense.

        What stock CLK does 12.8?

        You are out of your mind if you think I'm running you at 3000RPM in ANY gear...

        I'll run from:
        A) A Dig
        B) 20MPH Roll
        C) 40-45-55MPH Roll

        So you want me to run you at the rpm you shine and I.don't? Let's make.it fare 3 runs your rpm range 3 runs mine and we see the outcome.
        Anyways sticky.tell me what 1/ 4 slip you want me to bring, if.Irunning him would be pointless if he loses I will se another 14 pages of saying his car is not tuner right etc. Tell me what you want me to do it the 1/4 and I go.to the track got get a slip.

        Look, you guys just run and what happens, happens.

        Why would he run at 3k rpm? That makes no sense, it's like asking a turbo car to run without boost just because the car it is running is not boosted.

        The M3 needs to rev. Just pick a starting speed and you both be at the best rpm and gear for your cars.

        Do you have any 1/4 mile slips?

        There will be no excuses, the mods on my car are those that put out the most hp....gintani fully catless exhaust, custom OETuning dynotune, and in regards to pulleys/intake/scoops you cant really go wrong with any brand. And anything above 4500rpm is good for me...

        You guys have different motors/powerbands. You can't run based on RPM, just pick a MPH.

        Thats why they should just run from a dig,and stay on it til they hit the limiter in top gear

        Then the launch/traction is a great variable. I won't encourage anyone to run from a stop on the street, save it for the dragstrip.

        So mean Blaizeon ran again today for the $#@! of it while the M6 and 370tt RAN, I HAD A 200LBS passenger and you can clearly see with extra weight 335i passes me easy. Then we ran with out passengers i keep the lead to 130 and then my $#@!ing limiter kicks in and the car back down to 125.
        i will have the videos later on tonight or tomorrow. Click here to enlarge

        Passenger makes a big difference. Need to see the runs without.

        From my own experience, passenger makes a huge difference.

        Thanks for posting Sizzle. The run without the passenger was closer, but I thought I took that one too. This time I ran map 2 with 100oct.
