Sticky created the thread 2015 BMW F82 M4 vs. 2014 Porsche 991 Carrera EVO track battle comparison.
" We already saw this comparison earlier in the year when Car and Driver compared the F82 M4 to the Porsche 991 Carrera. In that comparison, the M4 came out on top. Let's see what happens when the Brits over at EVO get a hold of both of these cars for a track comparison. This is the big question, does the M4's power and updated chassis allow it to beat the lighter rear engine Porsche 991 Carrera around the track?


EVO does the comparison well showing both cars lapping at the same time. This allows some of the trademark characteristics of the cars to show. Namely that the 911 has less understeer on turn on but this is the area that one traditionally has to be careful with a 911 getting back on the power exiting the apex so that oversteer does not bite you in rear end.

The 911 handling is definitely tighter. The M4's additional mass shows as it tends to push a bit. The 911's lead built in and out of turns is made up by the M4's power. Finesse versus muscle is what we witness. The tighter the course gets, the more it favors the 991.

Laptimes, for reference a 458 Speciale laps this track in 1:14.2: "

@Josh@Cobb can you give us some insite of how accurate this paramter is in calculating torque and how it is coming it with its numbers ?
The torque is calculated in the DME based on modeling done internally. It should be reasonably accurate until you start messing with load to torque tables or anything else that would start to skew the calculations. At that point you may be making it more accurate for your setup or completely ruining those calculations. If the car is running well with just a flash, those values should be pretty good since they are used for quite a bit of the DMEs requests. "

klipseracer replied to the thread Flash faux pas? Modern BMW turbo flash tuning capability is greatly overstated and not what you think it is.
" The way these DME's get hacked quite literally is by someone eaves dropping/infecting bmw employee's computers etc and getting schematics, information, tapping email conversations etc in order to find out clues on how to get around the protections, how protocols work and so on and then they charge boat loads of money for the information. Either that information has not been found, or nobody has paid the sum which is being asked for on the grey/black market. "

" That's a great 60 foot and excellent elapsed time especially in that density altitude.

Nice job hooking on the Mickey Thompson drag radials.

Sticky created the thread 2015 Mercedes-Benz MLC / ML63 AMG spy videos.
" What you see in the videos below is the upcoming Mercedes answer to the BMW X6. Yes, the four-door 'coupe' style SUV market is heating up. Basically, the MLC will just be an M-Class but with different styling. Essentially how BMW makes the X6 based on the X5 architecture. This means the transmission and engine choices will all carry over. It also means we will see an MLC63 AMG as spyphotos from earlier this year showed.


The MLC model in the videos below appears to be the MLC63 AMG based on the bodywork and wheels compared to the previous set of spyphotos. The sound of the exhaust also points to an M157 5.5 liter V8 under the hood. The only wildcard is the rear diffuser which does not appear to have the trademark quad tips as shown in the previous set of spyphotos.

It is not uncommon for manufacturers to try to remove elements that tell too much about the model testing. Regardless, the MLC and MLC63 AMG are shaping up well and the design proportions seem to work. The official unveiling is not far off.

Can't speak for everyone here, but 550 - 600 ft*lbf is what I'm looking for. For reference, the SPEC Stage 2+ is a popular choice and is rated to 545 ft*lbf. "

Well I'm not going to say anything. For those that do know the blower and capability I think it's very obvious. I'd rather just wait and show the graph to make the doubters look like morons. "
