I am not upset and you are correct, I don't get your humour.
I also didn't say you did anything wrong, you just come across like the type of person I wouldn't like if I ever met you.
Luckily there are other people here.
You'll never know until you meet me I guess. But I don't expect to get along with everyone on the planet. No worries. "
" This video shows some impressive acceleration from an M157 twin turbo equipped E63 AMG that also has the 4Matic all wheel drive drivetrain. The car hustles from a stop and is launched using launch control which Mecedes-Benz AMG calls Race Start. Holding the brake pedal revs jump up to just under 4000 rpm and releasing the brake launches the car. When the driver releases the brake the torque is applied to the ground and there is a split second hesitation as the drivetrain copes with all the power being unleashed.
The 4Matic grip is quite impressive as the power is put down drama free and the E63 rockets forward. Shifts are quick and crip from the MCT automatic transmission and the PP-Performance Stage 2 tuned vehicle with downpipes gets to 291 KPH or 180 MPH VERY quickly.
It's honestly not even close. Cobb is much farther advanced. I don't have the time to list all of the differences, but they are not even comparable if you are looking for maximum power or more than just a few mods. For a stock or lightly modded car i would say they are all very close.
I understand that cobb is more advanced that is not what i asked.
They both have access to load and wgdc tables, ingition, fuel and vanos tables ( same as BB flash too)
So in terms of power output they should be the same (if same values in both)
You said he cannot keep boost with OFT but he will be able to with COBB, i am trying to figure out why is that since Load and WGDC tables are available in both. "
" UFA starts at 4PM EST, the 2014 NFL season officially begins today!
It is the silly season with free agency, prepare to see bad teams spend big on marginal and aging talent. Happens year, after year, after year. EVERY free agent was willfully dumped by their old employer, just remember that whenever you think “player X is the key to the Superbowl”. Take the Seahawks, that roster is 100% home grown and built. Harvin was nice icing on the cake and Lynch has been good, but the bread and butter was drafted and developed in house. That’s how you do it.
My 2C, I’ve seen some disastrous signings go down with nary a dissent in the room….but I’m not a numbers guy, so I leave that to the front office. "
Colts are already better than last year.....cut Satele! Yay.
Colts have some interesting pieces and obviously a very bright future at QB, but some serious holes in the roster and the depth is poor in my opinion. Have a feeling they will be aggressive this off season and push to be an AFC heavyweight, but they’re just not deep enough to hang with DEN and NE. Lack of bulk in the front seven really showed in the AFCD game last season, they got manhandled start to finish. "
You can purchase the differential from BMW and pay the dealer or someone to install it, but you can't add it as a factory option.
Why exactly is the M Performance Part not an option?

How do you get the parts? You have to check a box somewhere don't you? "
" Ok, cool! So r888's only come in either 275/35/18 or 285/30/18 or a 275/40/18 but those would be too tall and are a lot more $ then the two previous sizes. Since ill have Vargas stage 3s I was guessing ill want the widest/tallest tire possible. The nt555r's do come in a 285/35/18. Decisions decisions.... "
I had 275/35/17 on z4 wheels on my 135 with no rubbing issues with the r888 when I went racing or for those summer days where i felt like beating on her....
r888s never scared me in the rain at all... they behaved fine... even the nt05rs did good too imo...
I Daily drove 265s on my lowered 135i when i had it but I had the Hankook R-S3s which were just average.
R888s are a superior performance tire to PSS which i just took off my 335i. With RBs I now hook with continental DWS' from second sometimes and always third, where the PSS would spin... and the DWS' allow me to drive in the snow without any problems. "
LOL. Let me clarify, I wasn't driving the car. Rob (the driver) is a good friend and he is the manager of the shop that works on my car. From what I can see in the video, he turned 1.43 without even pushing it, I told him to not to go over 140(the car will do 160+) at the back straight as the car really needed new brake pads
God damn that's fast lap. That track is amazing, I love that straight. "
I love toyo r888s .... They hook significantly better than PSS in a straight line and on curves... The comparison in that regard is really lopsided.. They are fine in the rain if you drive like a normal human being. PSS shine on wet pavement , imo its what they do best. They will last longer but are no where near the r888 in performance aspect if you push your car more than the avg enthusiast. Id get continental DWS again before i got PSS again but thats just me, i really did not care for the PSS at all.
I also Daily Drove nt05r's in my 135 and they were good but gave up the tight handling the r888s provided. I give my vote to the r888.
There is also the ra1 or r1r , whatever the other tire toyo makes that is the same/similar compound to the r888s , I have heard good things about those too.
Glad to hear the R888's are ok in the rain as long as I drive cautiously. Was worried about that. Do the R888's run wide? I already had my rears rolled in preparation and don't mind if I need to do some more fender work if needed. Would idealy like to run 285's but if they run closer to a normal 295 then I would have to go with a 275. Will look into the other two toyos you mentioned, thanks! "
Why is that?
I thought Cobb,OFT,and BB flash all do the same exact thing.
It's honestly not even close. Cobb is much farther advanced. I don't have the time to list all of the differences, but they are not even comparable if you are looking for maximum power or more than just a few mods. For a stock or lightly modded car i would say they are all very close. "
To add to my first comment, I have a 135i with Forgestar F14's that have the same specs as your ARC 8s and I run Michelin PSS size 235/40/18 and 265/35/18.
Slight rubbing in front even after 2 sessions of fender rolling, and slight rubbing rear inner wheelarch lining from the extra wheel height when rear suspension travel is near to maxed out. Stock M-spec suspension. I trimmed the parker (that holds the lining from the inside) to prevent punctures, not too concerned about the cloth lining.
For my next set of PSS I will probably go with 225/40/18 for my front tires to stop the rubbing there.
Thanks David, I'm suprised to hear that you rubbing with 265's . According to this: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...=952071&page=2 there are several guys running wider, with and without spacers and not having issues. Is the m-sport lower/different than a regular sport suspension? Will look into the pilots ss. "
