That's HUGE! I knew it was a lot of weight, but that's incredible... I was just browsing Alibaba.com - they have some Lion packs for golf carts (350 max CC amps), but can't find anything for car. I...

Now this has got me all curious (weight reduction) - any members here know what a stripped interior M3 would weigh in at? Have no ideas what the seats weigh in this car. I am talking remove fronts -...

I want an Lion battery for my car too, but haven't found one that isn't an absurd price. I am thinking of making one myself at this point. Have you found any that aren't at the 1K mark?

That's a shame... I like to see these "bigger" companies stick around, as it gives me faith that their product is good. Obviously, that's not the case here - and that sucks. I guess we will see what...

My lord that thing is insanely quick. The second race wasn't even fair, and the Agera still reeled him in like a biatch.

He's a good looking dog... Nice leash :)

I definitely drive as fast as possible from point A to point B as possible weather and traffic permitting. That's why I have an M3 - and love it. Track and street are two separate things, but still -...

And by the way, about this whole "turbocharged era" - this has happened before in the 70s during the oil crisis. This is where things like the 300zx, Supra, RX-7, etc. came from. To say that the...

Yep, this is true. Just drove the C7 for a few days in Florida, and still can't get over how good that engine was. For 70k, I would bet there is not one car that can compete for the price/performance...

A very basic understanding of physics will immediately reveal to you that putting MORE "THINGS" between the intake port and the outside/intake (opposite of dethrottling) increase lag, reduce...

Yeah, good point... I guess it's not too impressive when looking at it like that. Things are crazy in the car world; come along way in 5 years.

I know it's an FI engine and all, but it's pretty impressive to make 295 ft-lbs of torque out of a little 2.0 liter engine. When you realize that an STi is making less torque with another half a...
Nah, it's not throwing money blindly - at least in my mind. I drive as fast as I can within legal limits, and want my car setup "right". I would get an alignment, and have them check the bushings....

I had no idea Porsche manufactured tractors; I knew about Lamborghini - but not Porsche. That's awesome.
I was curious, so found some information if anyone is interested:...
It sounds like you are right on the money - if you feel a "shimmy" in the rear of your car (mine was at it worst in the rain), it's most likely your rear sub-frame and/or the bushings.

Jesus - that motor is a jewel. I love it, and every time I see something like this, I regret selling my E46. I need another one ASAP. 370 RWHP is no joke out of a NA 3.2 liter engine; that's a TON of...
They are impressive, that's for sure. A lot of people that I hear about when I go down south to ride have FI setups, and supposedly they are nuts. They are pretty fast stock to be honest - when you...
Ha! That would be awesome... It's a two-stroke, so it might get complicated (although, now you got me thinking <g>) - but that would be a fast quad. Query "fast banshee" in youtube - some guys on the...
That thing is nutty quick, and the driver obviously has some skill/comfort with that car/course. I haven't seen many AWD P-Cars doing drifts in a controllable manner. Looks like they dialed in that...
Yikes, that thing is sick. I have heard over and over again that they are amazing, and have seen a few at the Badlands - but never had a chance to see one move and/or drive one. I just recently...

Yeah, I guess I would say read the article in the 3 images - and that's with an older E46 M3. Timing is definitely pulled on 89 vs 93 or 93 vs 100... I am sure Evolve has done it also, and if we...

I guess at that point, it's a matter of semantics, right? If you have an ECU that has a "max advance" number, and you aren't reaching it because of your octane level, you could say it's pulling...
10-22-2014, 08:21 PM
The key is octane, not the brand of fuel - as said in the article. Point is, timing will advance on an engine (especially a performance oriented one) - and timing advance == more power.

When I say "archived on my computer" - computer should be plural. I have 4 computers on my desk - and a bunch of mining machines, and probably - idk, 15 hard drives... I am making it sound worse than...
10-22-2014, 12:52 AM
Ha! Thanks, appreciate it.
I have a bunch of stuff (mostly S54/S65/M3 related) archived on my computer from over the years; this was from the June 2002 issue of Evo, and images were grabbed...
