    Indeed. GREAT for road courses. Not so much for 1/4 mile. Better off with Vbox and Gpro.

    thanks Jim. How many different inputs can the video box handle? Will it read off the yaw sensors, G forces and most engine data ? Can it plug into OBD ?

I have done some street pulls with Jon and some other bmw guys but I have no interest in making it a weekend thing like Jon and themyst and others do. I could hang with a 120ish mph trap, my best was 122 on drags.

    I also have no issue doing 60-130 runs on my own in my own controlled area where I know im not going to kill anyone but myself. Running heads up on the street makes me trust you, or Jon or anyone I am running next to. I dont really care to put myself in a situation where you get into me and I lose control or the other way around.

    That is the beauty of the Vbox. You dont need to run heads up. You simply put one in your car and let the numbers do the talking. Themyst can easily do this and beat my time if he thinks he can. Nothing is stopping him or Jon for that matter. I really dont see what the problem is.
    Very good post.... Click here to enlarge

    Congrats propain on your new record. I wish you would've kept this record a secret until Jon had a chance to best your 9.1 record though because now he'll be super obsessed with this new record and he may injure himself or someone on the street trying to destroy it.

    New tune only M156 V8 60-130 record set by a C63 with the OE Tuning ECU tune

    Congratulations to BenzBoost member Propain for raising the bar on tune only performance for the C63 AMG. On the BenzBoost forums a rather lengthy thread took place regarding tune only 60-130 records. Two users were battling it out back and forth with runs in the 9.X range but Propain managed to break into the 8's with an 8.86 on 1.5% decline. The car has an OE Tuning tune and was run on 93 octane pump but we do have to mention it has an aftermarket K&N filter. Regardless, congratulations for the new record.

    Thanks Moe! I thought about not posting it but I figured why start another 30 page thread. Lets hope he doesnt kill someone trying to beat it. That is why I am so put off to running heads up with these guys. If I kill myself doing this dumb stuff thats on me, but I would hate to be responsible for spinning someone out at 140 MPH and killing them.

    Drive Safe!

    I bought this one but I have yet to hook it up in any car and use it. I bought it because it displays the information on the video screen in the form of a dash and you can see all the information about the car real time in the video. I thought it would be a great tool to promote the shop through you tube videos when we install exhausts and things like that but I have yet to try it.

    Ya, I'm not really sure why Propain said it's no good for drag racing, it does everything that the cheaper one does plus a zillion other things and syncs real time to two cameras.

    I think he just meant that it was an over kill if bought only for drag racing since you wouldn't need 99% of the data it gives you. However, the main problem with logging via the OBDII ports on Mercedes vehicles is that the processor and bus speed are way too slow. Bassn_07 from mbworld found a much better system which hooks directly to sensors in the car and log a lot more data a million times faster than through the MB OBDII port. He used Dashdaq/Zeitronix combo which I've seen in action on the dyno (during tuning) and at the track.
