    Sticky.......DCT is good, I have an electrical drain and a small racing battery which keeps draining and the car loses clutch adaptations, so I have to work that out. But hoping its good for NFZ on Nov4. should have some nice slips if there are no issues.

    Yuvs he's right. Hybrids are your best bet if you're trying to save money rather than going for a crappy single. If you're going to do a large single, do it right. Don't skimp. You get what you pay for. In many cases with JPworkz you never even get what you paid for.

    A few days ago BoostAddict posted some GPS acceleration results for the Kia Stinger 3.3 liter turbo V6. Well, Car and Driver got their hands on the car and their numbers are not quite as impressive. Their 1/4 mile sprint is half a second slower with a 13.2 @ 108. Not to mention the curb weight figure. The Kia Stinger is heavy! 4157 pounds to be exact. All wheel drive is nice but wow does it come with a penalty. The Stinger is carrying similar weight to a BMW M5. Car and Driver feels the handling is a bit floaty. They also complained about the throttle and the transmission being slow to respond to commands. Overall the praised the value but stated the German competition is more fun to drive. For the $52,595 tested price it seems KIA comes up a bit short in driving dynamics. VEHICLE TYPE: front-engine, all-wheel-drive, 5-passenger, 4-door hatchback PRICE AS TESTED (MFR'S EST): $52,595 (base price: $39,895) ENGINE TYPE: twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve V-6, aluminum block and heads, direct fuel injection DISPLACEMENT: 204 cu in, 3342 cc POWER: 365 hp @ 6000 rpm TORQUE: 376 lb-ft @ 1300 rpm TRANSMISSION: 8-speed automatic with manual shifting mode DIMENSIONS: WHEELBASE: 114.4 in LENGTH: 190.2 in WIDTH: 73.6 in HEIGHT: 55.1 in PASSENGER VOLUME: 96 cu ft CARGO VOLUME: 23 cu ft CURB WEIGHT: 4157 lb C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 4.6 sec Zero to 100 mph: 11.3 sec Zero to 130 mph: 19.9 sec Zero to 150 mph: 30.5 sec Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 5.3 sec Top gear, 30-50 mph: 2.6 sec Top gear, 50-70 mph: 3.4 sec Standing -mile: 13.2 sec @ 108 mph Top speed (governor limited, mfr's claim): 167 mph Braking, 70-0 mph: 164 ft Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.91 g C/D FUEL ECONOMY: 75-mph highway driving: 26 mpg Highway range: 410 miles EPA FUEL ECONOMY (C/D EST): Combined/city/highway: 20/17/26 mpg

    “Electric Boogaloo” is a phrase typically appended to the title of a sequel TV or film production to mock its poor quality. Originally featured in the title of the poorly received 1984 dance film Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo Well not in the US. Replace Mossad with Isis or some terror group and you're onto something I think. Either way, this is being covered up.

    The fact he used an IASIP reference at the end is gold. I'm not sure if I 100% buy it but it does explain the ridiculous amounts of ammo he had. He could not have expected to use that much. Why Mossad though? They have plenty of guns and ammo. We give them plenty of arms and $$$...maybe I missed something?

    It's a fair point. I wanted to go to longer gears due to the extra shift for the E92 M3 DCT compared to the manual. The higher you are up in gears the less torque multiplication you get. You won't accelerate in 5th as quickly as 3rd even in a vacuum.

    I did actually watch a video on that. Using power to cool the engine with the ac to make even more power. Quite a funny thought.

    AWSAWS replied to a thread GC update in N54
    It is actually interesting. I go through 5 gears where autos go through 4 so dct might not be the quickest over a quarter mile. Not sure which one has the ideal setup gear ratio wise for the quickest time. Yes dct should have continuous power but timing does drop a little between shifts. Boost gets reduced so as not to blow up the box.

    Well what's stopping you? Get it. The DCT's will obviously be the quickest/fastest.

    AWSAWS replied to a thread GC update in N54
    I'm only stuck at 130 because of my transmission. If I had the dodson or ssp clutch pack I could run 30 psi instead of 25. Yes my only trouble is launching the car. I have Federal rsrr but they still wouldn't hook. Launching was better with boost reduction but ruined my 60ft times so in the end I disabled it and did my best to ease it in. I can't fully turn off traction control. The car can snap round in the blink of an eye. Just not worth wrecking for. Can launch in 2nd with dct but it's impossible to raise the rpms from idle. Boost braking is impossible and launch control is disabled. I actually had the car over boost to 31 psi today. I flashed back to my pump gas and meth tune. Something like FF must have learned way up. Failsafe caught it. I had set boost target to 24 psi. My friend had the exact same thing happen to him. Also a jb4 user. Also had been at the drag strip. He was targeting 26 psi on the Vargas stage 2+

    Maybe, I don't know. All I know is Vivid is trying to push this wherever they can.

    Unfortunately, there are a good number of tuners out there that will lie, cheat, and steal. Claiming dynographs that actually come from others or editing graphs is something lesser known tuners do to try and elevate their profile. This is something BimmerBoost covered before. TRM Tuning or TRM BMW Performance Engineering is the latest tuner caught red handed attempting to pass off someone else's graph as their own. The claim is that this is a 1256 wheel horsepower BMW M52 tuned by TRM with their parts and a 'big turbo' as he calls it. The problem? This is a Supra graph from Induction Performance: TRM literally just edited out where it says Induction Performance on the original graph and cut off the power and torque curves past 7k rpm. They changed the peak torque figure by borrowing the 2 and the 5 from the HP figure to 972.25 from 971.89 in the original. Peak HP was changed from 1256.61 to 1256.12. Amateur hour work that anyone with Windows and MS Paint can do. Why didn't they think of changing the runfile number at the very least so it would not be such a blatant copy? Michael McCoy of TRM continues on with his BS: When in doubt, ask for runfiles. Additionally, if a tuner is willing to lie about their work and steal from others there are likely many other things they would be willing to lie about. Buyer beware.

    At least Watkins had a day where he put up serious points. Cooper isn't doing anything other than dropping the ball. You tried to get Hogan for Wallace (come on) so there are definitely people you want.

    There is nobody on your team I want on mine. I’m not giving you Cooper for Watkins. Put down the pipe.
