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 engined 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 in 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 ends up favoring 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.
