• 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.

        ^After seeing that run I am confident in the outcome now...

        Since his limiter is an issue 1st gear roll is probably a good idea.

        I wanted to swap the passenger to see what the difference would be, but we didn't get to do that.

        As always it's a pleasure to run. Are you planning on removing the speed limiter? I think our cars are pretty evenly matched. I do have dp's, fmic and meth otw though. FMIC will be installed last though as I'm thinking of going the custom route.

        That is me against a FBO 135 with Meth (which would walk blaizons car) when I was completely stock except a Meisterschaft muffler.........we would always be even then he would eventually pull out a car or two, I think he was on about 15psi (relatively lower boost for the mods he had)......

        ....I now have FBO which makes a DRASTIC difference (I most definetly am putting out more than the modded M3 in the video here)-->




        anyways ill stop with the paper racing, its pure speculation.....but just to give you an very rough idea..

        oh hello there ERM324 i remember you from power boards, what you fail to understand is that i am running a basic tune out of a box with a pulley i am no where near your mods on the car. im at 360WHP you are at 400WHP, wait for me to get all of my bolt on so we are on fair ground.

        Any slips on that 135? I'd expect it to pull you pretty damn hard for fbo *running 17+psi*, but it's only running 15lbs???

        I know that its FBO, but I am catless with a custom tune while he has HFC and an AA tune (I believe).

        Also, as previously stated the 135 was on low boost for its mods (it put down 425whp and pulled on OEtune C63 on high boost), but on high boost he would have walked the living $#@! out of me when I was stock. And why was it on low boost? Because neither him or I thought that he even needed high boost to pull on me, we were just $#@!ing around. There was an error in the video - it wasnt on 17psi it was on 14-15psi like previously stated (which would still walk you blaizon with all the mods he has).

        and sure, i will wait until you get all your mods

        That 135 should trap a good 3mph higher than I running map 7 + good gas. I haven't run any fbo N54's let me know when ya'll run I'd love to see how bad I'd get pulled by both of ya'll.

        @Blaizon, to be honest I think he will pull real hard. With him on meth and good gas he is able to run a much more aggressive map as you - the real difference will be seen at higher speeds when you start heatsoaking and he just keeps going. There were times when I remember him running 18-19psi on his procede with OK timing....his car moves

        I don't disagree, I just want to see how bad it gets. Is he 6mt or AT btw?

        He sold the 135 6MT for a 335AT, he put all the mods from the 135 into the 335.......hes running an AT now (he, as well as I, had serious issues with "bogging")

        Ah ok, I know who that is. He installed my 18ohm for me when I had jb3.
