    Porsche 991 GT3 RS vs. upgraded N54 turbo 335i rematch or how someone posts misleading race videos

    Once upon a time a Swede named Gustav headed a website known as M5bored. He would post various race videos as promotion over and over to build up interest and then sell the board. The thing is, fanboys would use these videos as evidence of superiority of one car over another.

    Without any data you don't truly know what is going on. As is the case in the video posted the other day where the GT3 RS gets a big lead on the 335i with upgraded turbos. BimmerBoost speculated the car was in the wrong gear but some fanboys stated the Porsche is just superior and lighter and blah blah blah.

    Low and behold BimmerBoost was e-mailed the rematch where the 335i starts in the correct gear. The GT3 RS still jumps but the race goes as it should be this time around:


    So why is this Gustav fellow at these runway events only posting the videos showing cars in a certain light? Well, in the case of the GT3 RS it is because he is using his friend's GT3 RS to make additional promotional race videos and doesn't want to upset him. It's why you don't see a lot of content showing a different outcome because Swedes are sensitive people.

    Let this be a lesson in how easy it is for results to be misleading without data.

    335i:

    + Palm Turbos Stage 1
    + MHD Mappad by BQ Tuning
    + Supersprint catback X-Pipe
    + VTT Inlets
    + Intercooler från KL Racing
    + Ultimate Racing downpipes without catalysts
    + Walbro 455 pump
    + 200cell Magnaflow sportcatalysts

    Seriously.. 335i is not even in same league as GT3 RS. BMW Fanboys make me laugh. Run that race from 0 or put both cars on proper track and see what happens. I am a BMW fan boy myself but pumping up ourselves for beating a purposely built weapon in straight line by modding your car to death is laughable.

    "M5bored" is not for everyone and i laugh at Gustav videos since they were not indicative of real world but this forum is not exactly the pinnacle of automotive journalism either so lets keep things in perspective.

    GT3 RS or modded 335i.. hmm.. that is a hard choice Click here to enlarge

    No one is saying that's the case at all. 335i's with upgraded turbos aren't designed for track work, or even really drag racing. But the point is to show that in its element (roll racing) the modded 335i beats the GT3 RS, instead of just leaving up a video where the GT3RS beats it when its in the wrong gear and creating an entirely false impression.

    Again, I don't see anyone even mentioning that idea other than yourself.

    Nobody is doing that. If you read the article it says display the real content showing the real result and not misleading crap. Why even bother racing them if you're going to lie about what really happens?

    No $#@! the GT3 RS is a better car. That has nothing to do with the topic though.

    Yet this forum was able to instantly call that video out as BS and nobody else did? It might not be the pinnacle but it certainly does a better job at analysis than you do.

    How about a stock E39 M5 beating an E92 M3? Calling that BS out got me banned even after I provided my slip proving it.

    There was a GT3RS at NFZAZ running 144mph max. My friends Supra hit 146mph for his top speed. The supra and I are basically even within 1mph at prior events so even a FBO stock turbo 335i can take a GT3RS.

    The GT3 RS really isn't a top end car. I mean the aero will slow it down so much why even bother.
