" I saw that, very cool. That must be the high level summary that opens most reports, the full report would have been far broader.

Greg Gabriel's work is scouting 101, along with Cosell that's more or less must read if it has their name attached to it.

How do you know? How do you know which cars have what file? There is no way to know. We do know there are press files though.

Actually, yes there is. "

" [QUOTE=Sticky;585175]I don't know what makes you think press test numbers are the be all end all. So what? Ok, you take a car on a strip. So? The press cars aren't ever prepped for a strip and they likely aren't even testing on a strip.

BMW changes the files to keep the CEL from coming on from repeated laps as stated along with other things. I mean I don't have a whole breakdown for you as I did not develop the software but obviously there are changes to parameters that affect things other than acceleration.



You seriously think there is just one map? We had reports that BMW was testing the cars with over 700 horsepower. Doubt it? What do you think they do? Just develop one file and that is the chosen one? "

I'm probably just indecisive about the turbo choice cause we're waiting to get the kit.

You are right though when you say that you went with the twins for the low end torque. Also the reason why I don't have a big single turbo in my car plus "Sleeper mode" with the twins. "

" It's that time of year again folks, Fantasy Football!

So, rules carry over from last year which means 12 team league with a live draft.

Last year buy in was $30 I believe. We will up it this year to make the league more serious.

leveraged sellout replied to the thread 2015 BMW F82 M4 vs. 2014 Porsche 991 Carrera EVO track battle comparison.
" Sounds about right, this is about what I would expect. Both cars are fast, obviously the Porsche is lighter and smaller...2+2 sports car with a tiny trunk vs. a 2 door coupe with almost 5 seats and a huge trunk. Not the same type of car, I think given the difference in mission, the M4 does pretty well. "

Honestly, that's not a good starting point. Stock turbos can make 500wtq, so I'd make a 600ftlb + (to the fly clutch) to start. So a Spec 2+ and higher. No since in swapping clutch if it is marginally better than stock (which holds well, considering).

also, I'm interested in performance axles that don't have the normal BMW markup. I'd buy ASAP. "

leveraged sellout replied to the thread More details about the 2017 Toyota Z4 or BMW Supra - Hybrid four-cylinder, 3085 curb weight.
" This is interesting, as the next S2000 will be a 2900 pound rear-drive aluminum and CF turbo 4 roadster with about 365 hp, basically a baby NSX without the hybrid stuff, built in the same factory. I kind of feel the Supra name belongs only on something that will have over 500 hp, but I guess this is the future. "

I was under the assumption they were already available for the MT N54 which should not be an issue for the DCT N54 as both do not have torque converters like the AT does. Supposedly DSS was the vendor or I misunderstood something ?
