    Great news, makes an M3/M4 with DCT an easy choice over the Z06 and CTS-V IMHO Pick up a used model and go BO and you will be near 700 whp soon, just epic

    common sense? really? common sense would say an N54 shouldn't hold together with well over DBL the TQ and HP (700-800 whp+)... But it does. Common sense has nothing to do with component strength, haha it's based on material used, design, and assembly quality for the most part with some out lying factors. Some parts are factory over built and some are sub par and everything in between. An E9X with N54 axles and drive shaft are ok beyond factory and over DBL the TQ as long as they are not launched hard on, given today races are largely roll this isn't a problem for most.

    We have a pretty good idea now as to what the new F80 M3 and F82 M4 are capable of on the dragstrip. The car is capable of low 12's and high 11's in stock form with a good launch of course. This run is a more realistic representation of what most owners will get in stock trim at the dragstrip. To put this in context a stock F80 M3 on race gas is capable of 11.6 @ 119.2. Another way to look at is the previous generation E9X M3 would run 12.5-13.0 @ 111-114 in stock form. The new M3/M4 are roughly half a second quicker and 5 miles per hour faster as a ballpark estimate. This run rakes place at PBIR in Florida and there are some questions as to the strip's accuracy. Regardless, one can realistically expect to break into the 11's with a good launch in their M3/M4 even on stock rubber.

    This is the same Viper we already have seen in action against some stout competition mostly made up of Domestics. The bolt on tuned 583 wheel horsepower Gen IV Viper did incredibly well against those cars and now goes up against some exotics as well. The video starts with a nice overview of the cars involved with some music overlay. Thankfully once the runs start the music is cut and we get down to business. That is how to properly edit folks. Run 1 & 2 Viper vs. Lamborghini Aventador vs. Ferrari 458 Italia The first roll on between these cars has the Aventador nudge slightly ahead of both the Viper and Italia only for the Viper to make it up and pull once shifting into the higher gears. The Aventador beats the 458 but the Viper beats them both decisively. The rematch has the 458 struggle to line up and it gives up apparently just driving off. The Aventador and the Viper run with a similar outcome. The Viper is just too much for both of the Italians. Run 3 Viper vs. 621 all wheel horsepower bolt on GTR on E85 The GTR has the wheel and torque advantage in this one but the Viper is considerably lighter by roughly 650 pounds. The Viper simply pulls away from the GTR. Run 4 Aventador vs. Boost Logic BL1100 GTR at roughly 1050 wheel horsepower The GTR looks to pull away but the Aventador hangs in pretty well. Due to the camera angle and the Viper being the camera car it is difficult to see the exact difference but it is safe to say the GTR made easy work of the Aventador. Run 5 Aventador vs. Viper Hard to even call this a race, Viper wins. Run 6 Viper vs. stock ZR1 Somewhat short pull but the closest race of the bunch. The Viper still comes out ahead of the ZR1 by a couple car lengths. Run 7 Viper vs. BL1100 GTR The Viper takes a nice big fat jump but the GTR is able to run it down quickly and pull. That is exactly what it should do. Run 8 Viper vs. 458 Italia The 458 owner would have been better going up against the Viper in curb appeal. The Italia gets destroyed. Run 9 Viper vs. BL1000 GTR A clean run between the two with the Viper being on the receiving end. The GTR runs away quickly once it spools. Run 10 Viper vs. stock ZR1 rematch Best run of the bunch. The ZR1 hangs in very well falling back to the Viper's rear bumper and holding this position until the Viper lets off. A driver's race essentially. Run 11 Viper vs. stock LF-A The LF-A gets pulled very easily. Honestly, for the money the LF-A costs you just expect more than this out of it. Of course it is not a straightline car but come on Lexus. Run 12 Viper vs. E85 bolt on GTR rematch The GTR owner messes up a bit here as he goes early lets off and then goes again. It just makes for a botched start for him and the Viper pulls. The conclusion one can reach from all these runs is that is one very well driven Viper and that the Viper is hard to beat on the highway even when other cars have more power.

    This is the right attitude. If all they want is sales they can get from everyone else other than the enthusiasts.

    Honestly I hope Hyundai and GM both start wiping the floor with BMW. If they want to become the German Toyota as you say, then fuck em. They deserve to die. At the very least, the competition will produce some amazing vehicles.

    There are numerous supercharger upgrades for the C7 Corvette LT1 motor but not a single twin screw. The only positive displacement options are roots blowers so this is going to be a bit of a game changer especially considering that the C7 Z06 LT4 V8 does not come with a twin screw from the factory. The numbers Whipple is providing we assume are on a stock LT1. Their supercharger produces 577 wheel horsepower and 585 lb-ft of torque at the wheels at only 8 psi of boost. That is very, very little boost on the 2.9 liter blower they are using. The large blower does of course stick out from the hood a bit but if someone fits a hood with the right cut out it can turn out looking pretty mean. A small price to pay anyway for a twin screw blower of this size with plenty of headroom. This is obviously still early and the blower is not yet available but this essentially matches LT4 figures with way more room in the blower.

    PBIR has already been verified twice per VBOX by individuals I know or have met. One of the members is @GeorgiaTech335Coupe with the Vishnu ST setup who verfied the "right" lane is the slow lane when he took his car to an event back in 2012 which conflicted with is VBOX reporting. Orlando Speed Way (OSW) he was trapping 122.95 mph, he comes to PBIR "right" lane and now trapping 121.62. Same issues with missfires at both tracks. http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?32208-Vishnu-Single-Turbo-at-PBIR-12-50-121-6-having-to-shift-all-gears-at-6300rpm/page2 The "left" lane at PBIR, verified by VBOX, is capturing the correct mph speed traps. The right lane is 2 mph slower. This is how PBIR is renown for being a slow track as more people favor the right lane not for its speed traps but for its ET due to being more flat and better traction compared to the left lane OSW and PBIR tracks are about 200 miles from each other.
