The reason why I didnt post the video of our run is your face was showing and didnt want this on youtube. We were tight but you backed off. Because of issues you had with your car. Your car had FBO max boost with meth. It wouldve been interesting wayup top.
agreed , and even better reason than... got respect for u bcu back up your claims and alwaysrematch like u did with ben and his rbs.. im actually really looking for a c63 right now , your car being a big reason why.. still no issues right? ever? "
" Hey guys so I just got my car back yesterday from having the Spec stage 3+ clutch and Steel SMFW installed and I have a few questions. So first of all my pedal is pretty stiff. I wouldn't say it is necessarily over the top but it is much stiffer than I expected after reading that it is barely more than stock. Now my biggest concern is the engagement point. I made it a point to tell the shop to use the low TO bearing position so they definitely did that, however, my clutch still engages at the top. I would say 9/10 of the way up is when it starts to engage. Without my clutch stop it was a paint to drive but now that I put it back in it's a bit better. I spoke to the shop and they said that it was normal with a performance clutch like this to engage high and as it gets broken in it will get a bit lower? I only have around 140 miles on it so far so i'm not complaining just want to see if this is normal and the engagement point I should expect out of it. Thanks in advance for anyones help "
" Are the other platforms you tuned direct injected high compression turbo motors? If not throw it all away and just sit back and learn. Either from asking people who have lead the way on these motor ala PTF, BMS, etc, or from slowly moving forward. But taking your 10 years of tuning other platforms and trying to apply it blindly to this one is going to lead to some grenaded motors. The saying always holds true and does so even more on this motor. Boost doesn't break motors, timing does. "
lol i had to post this... jon is a great guy, he loves his car and its very strong. I met him and got called out to race him after sticky front paged my 135i running a stock c63 and nosing it with my brother in the car.. I was on 18ohm jb4 running a few lbs less in that video so i went out to race jons oe tuned c63 , he was a very cool dude to me at least, we bsed before and after the race.. it does seem he likes to stir the pot with videos but most know this going in...
I raced him twice in my old 135..... once where my car hiccuped and limped twice he had his camera and didn't post the videos... which was cool of him ... He is the type of guy you love to beat but hate to lose to.
he just really likes his car , just like sticky loves himself a dct
i couldn't get anyone to come out this day to video except my buddy in the charger rt taping or trying to lol. He is about 8 years younger than me and loved every second of this race as you can tell by watching it lol .... my car trapped 120 both times at the track.... this is with jb4 15ohm no flash days lol.... he trapped 120 or 121 .... he was upset i did not keep going in this race but you can draw your own conclusion from how far ahead of the challenger we were and how fast (slowly) he was going and where we were. I hit at least 140-150. Try to ignore the beginning but the drag race motha fffkkaaass is pretty damn funny lol...
I actually know the guy with the e63 you lost to. He didn't even floor it since it had 500 miles on it. He said you had a little camera and took vids. I guess posting a loss video isn't as scintillating.
Your an idiot. The guy had over 3k miles. He wanted to play and was in race mode. I did lose but not by much. Within a car difference. Go troll somewhere else. "
" Didn't think I had enough to do this...but my right axle let go last night, best part was i was out of town and had to leave the car 2 hours away.
I've searched and seen plenty of info but wanted to get some input from you guys who've been through this. From the pic, looks like the joint was the weak point? is it possible to rebuild this? Looks like DSS shafts are the best upgraded solution but i believe they require a working assembly to upgrade rather than a replacement shaft correct? At this point, i just need to get the car back here and thought i would just replace it with oem and then focus on upgrading later. Anyone know the best place to get a replacement cheaper than local dealer?? i've checked a few vendor sites and can't seem to find them. "
" Wow, that's a disappointment! So the first press vehicles will magically have 450+ bhp (easy to up the boost a bit on a turbo car) to display an improvement in performance figures over the E9x generation. "
Honestly the biggest disappointment for me is that I've never been able to go to a F1 race yet in my life, and one reason I wanted to go was to experience the sounds, and now that I can't do that it fucking sucks
This engine change rule has been known for 2 years now.
Nobody pulls a 1.6 turbo V6 with ERS out of a high hat, they had to be developed.
Were you expecting them to sound the same as a NA V8? Seriously?
Last chance you had to truly watch a NA F1 race was Austin 2013.
Which was actually a nice race.
But you clearly missed out on that one. "
