    So something in the 3.0-3.06 range based on 2.82 to start.

    Again, you are wrong about the final drive ratio. Your supercars link doesn't even show the FINAL drive it lists each individual ratio...Lots of other sites online list the FINAL drive ratio:

    Why is that bad? He's running less boost now when they figure it out it will make more power.
    Kind of a dickhead post on your part IMO. Starting to see why others don't like you.
    So you post something and are asked about it and that's all you have to say ? Ask the owner ? Sorry, but if that's all you can come up with then why post anything at all ?? I'll stand by "d!ckhead" description and most of the people who don't like me are the guys like you who post misinformation and incorrect technical details and then get called out for it. Do a little fact checking and perhaps that won't happen.

    Very nice. That event is amazing. SO MANY PEOPLE. The girls are nuts! The only other time Ive ever see that many people on a beach is here on Long Island during the Jones Beach Airshow.
    Take some pics and good luck.

    Sounds like it, miss the VBox planted in the windshield? Rather see that at 100 than the speedo.

    Lots of sites list the CLK ratio and assume it's for the BS, I can find as many including car and driver and motor trend which are arguably better sources than anything posted previously and all state 6% shorter diff gearing. You say you have connections at MB and AMG, call them and ask them about the 3.0X ratio in your diff. Post on the AMG P lounge and ask.

    So you post something and are asked about it and that's all you have to say ? Ask the owner ? Sorry, but if that's all you can come up with then why post anything at all ?? I'll stand by "d!ckhead" description and most of the people who don't like me are the guys like you who post misinformation and incorrect technical details and then get called out for it.

    I don't have to "come up with" anything. Why beat around the bush, ask the source, too much of this internet BS is speculation. I guess I should have posted lets ask lzh ???

    It's not making 650rw now but it drives so who cares. Also you can't disprove anything I say from the 100mph attained, you are flat out wrong about gearing, and you obviously dont know much about the boost situation on that car. So please just save it and the crewchief speech for someone who believes it.

    I stand by my comments and will watch you eat crow because I'm right. Car wouldn't shift at 14-15psi so they dropped it and magically it shifts now. Still makes good power at 11psi so get over yourself. Nice of you to basically copy and paste a line from MHP lecturing OE in bold above.

    Last, I don't think Ive ever seen you contribute anything positive on any forum. You swung from Brads nuts before being banned from mbw and have found another wagon to jump on, good for you. Now try and grasp the concept that facts are facts and no matter how much you thump your chest online it doesnt make you any more knowledgeable.

    You're also wrong about anyone eliminating all TCU torque limiters as I said before so add another one to the pile.

    It's not even your car so don't get so defensive. If anyone here needs to do research it's you, you own a BS and don't even know what kind of gearing is out back. Try not to be an ass for once in your life after you find out you're wrong on all counts.

    Lots of sites also list 2:82...you are simply doing the math and taking away 6% of the total...which is assumptive at best because we all know the BS locking dif wasn't based on any other 63 platform...it was made specifically for the BS and then adapted to other performance package cars.
    But, I find it interesting that you could see the display on the Vbox in a video sent to you via MMS Click here to enlarge
    You are full of sh!t and you know it. First you say he didn't hit 100mph based on the gear he was in and the rear axle final drive ratio. Now you are saying you saw it on the Vbox ??? Really? Then why didn't you say that in the first place ?? Again, cause your full of sh!t and regurgitating info you apparently heard from someone else - whomever forwarded you the video. I spoke to Jim. He sent me the video and you can't make out SH!T on that tiny little Vbox. But nice try douchebag. I'd post the video for everyone to see but Jim asked me not to as he will be posting lots of info after the weekend. So, I'll respect his wishes and not steal his thunder.

    LOL - exactly. YOU are the only person speculating in this thread and have really contributed a big goose egg which leads me to believe you have some sort of agenda.

    The one thing you are right about is that it's only making 11psi. As of now...cause they built THREE SETS OF PULLEYS. One for the street, which was on the car when the video in question was taken. Another set of pulleys for the drag strip and a third set for road courses.
    So who is full of sh!t and wrong on all counts ?? LOL. I'm done with this clown. Sorry for taking the thread down the usual offroad sh!t trail but this douche has no clue what he's talking about.

    Really, what other cars does the BS diff fit? MB says none. MKB tried it already.

    I have seen 3.06 in a few articles which is why I mentioned that exact number. Again though doing the math at 6% it's 3.0 something. Again Private Lounge and then feel free to apologize.

    Really? Never did I say I could see the vbox display, just that there was one. Seriously? You got that from what I wrote? LOL you are unbelievable. I said I'd rather see it on the vbox than the speedo. Given the difference in accuracy and also the car having non stock size wheels, tires and overall dia which would you rather see the data on. That's what I thought.

    Amazing you can deduce so much nonsense from a simple statement. Nice work.

    LOL - exactly. YOU are the only person speculating in this thread and have really contributed a big goose egg which leads me to believe you have some sort of agenda.
    You're paranoid. No speculation on my behalf feel free to repost any you find, based on the vbox display misunderstanding Im not sure youre the best judge for anything reading compreshension based but we can try for fun.


    The one thing you are right about is that it's only making 11psi. As of now...cause they built THREE SETS OF PULLEYS. One for the street, which was on the car when the video in question was taken. Another set of pulleys for the drag strip and a third set for road courses.

    Wait, I contributed nothing and am wrong on all counts but I'm right it's only making 11psi and youre now half assedly admitting it? I guess thats progress, for you anyway. 11psi is the most boost it will shift in auto with so if he wants to change pulleys and shift in manual so be it. No $#@! he has more than 1 set, did you think they threw the other ones away? ROFL.

    I'm not going to continue down the personal comment road with you, you are a known ethug, I'll leave it at that.

    I'm not half ass admitting anything. It makes 11 psi with the street pulley. The other pulleys make 15psi and from what I am told by the horses mouth (and not some third party like you) it shifts fine due to the torque limiting Steve has been able to crack. Not sure who you are getting your information from....why don't you tell us because clearly you have been dodgy from the get go in this thread which leads me to believe you have some agenda. So, who are you speaking to that you think you know what your talking about ? Or, do you not want to be transparent about this and hide behind you keyboard ?

    Here we go down lzh's magical road to nowhere.

    Stay on topic. Car makes 11psi as it runs, you were wrong, I was right. What was that about fact checking?

    Never said it didn't have other pulleys and even said it made 14-15psi before and shifted in manual only.

    Same goes for the diff in the car in your garage.

    Face it if the car would shift in auto with 15psi it would have been running around a few mos ago. If all tq limiters were cracked again the converter would die instantly from all that torque.

    I said it before and now again youre paranoid. Facts are facts and now by your own admission you were wrong. If you think I have an agenda research all my posts and put something together otherwise go pop a xanax and stop being so pissy all the time.

    Im happy to see the car run what it runs and am happy for cart that hes got it back and its ready to race, just be honest and if you dont know for sure dont pretend like you do.

    Youre right your car will shock the tires much more than carts especially since it was after peak torque that the dip in graph occurred. If youve been around a dyno enough you know what wheelspin looks like on a chart and its not like what was posted.

    Any chance your tires were wet or the straps werent as tight as they should be?

    Interesting how you conveniently dodge all my questions above about where you're getting your info and your obvious agenda here. So if you knew about the pulleys then why did you only mention them after I told you about them?? Again....full of sh!t because I'm told the car shifts fine in auto at 15psi. How is it that you know different ??
    Perhaps we can discuss it out at Fontana if you're there to see it run.

    Are the Fontana runs a private rental or a public day?

    Honestly man I don't know but I'll do my best to get the answer for you and PM you. This thread has gone far enough track already.

    It's, no big deal. Discussing performance runs with a Weistec SC still has to do with the topic.

    Please PM me when you get an answer, thanks.

    Your questions about where I attain what I know are irrelevant. I post facts and the truth. What did I say? Car is making less boost now and shifts fine. With more boost it shifts in manual but not auto. All true. Why does there have to be an agenda other than posting correct info? I don't get it.

    Are you so blind as to not notice the 500x mentioned that carts car was making 15psi on the dyno with tq limiter step in, the 650rw one that has its own thread on this site?

    You are not the all knowing so please stop acting like it.

    Please PM me when you get an answer, thanks.
    Thank You.

    So now that this waste of bandwidth is over we can wait and see what she does with 11psi and hope to soon see what it does with 15+.

    Hope we get to see the results.

    On a related note DadsC63 has posted many times that his car wont shift in auto on a 160 shot but will on a 120 shot. Very similar to what we're seeing here. Both shift in manual mode due to higher tq limiter limitations in the tcu at higher tq levels but both need to be toned down to shift in auto. That coincidentally at least for me shoots a hole in the maf related tq limiter theory of nitrous vs supercharger tq delivery.

    That's an easy way to not have to back up what you say, isn't it ? Because all we know up to this point is that someone forwarded you a video via MMS. I know what I know from the source. Yours is simple speculation and watered down.
    We'll know soon enough and then what will you say when it runs 15psi and snaps off auto shifts in S mode going down the 1/4 ???
