    Which datazaps have pre intercooler temps? I can't see any I'm not trying to start arguments here and I apologize for bringing up anything advan related, but pre and post is the one true "stfu" data which would bring a lot of people, including myself, around.

    Don't want to stray too far off the topic at hand Tony, but when I tried 275/40/17 Hoosier DR2s (@20psi tire pressure) the car had shit for traction in 3rd gear, despite doing several rolling burnouts in a vain attempt to heat the tires. Ambient temps were in the 55F range and it was night time so the asphalt had cooled, oh and this was with a 3.46 rear end on a 6MT. Have not bolted them on since installing the 3.08, I'm hoping they should be a lot more effective in the daytime on warmer tarmac... PS - I think you meant 275/40/17 as I don't see a 45 listed for the DR2s?

    On the street / roll race car we have 275/45/17 Hoosier DR2's. We have full 28" slicks in the rear our of soon to be race car. They hook up fine we ran them a bunch of times at the strip, but this is not something you would run on the street, or a 1/2 mile event. This person (Milan) is a know it all, and when he talks, he usually shows he knows less that he wants you to believe. Remember his last minute "TX2K" build. Much ado about nothing, he is car is still slow. Ride easy @Milan Here is the set up put on the street car for mocking. The fit but just barely. To get it driveable we did a lot of work to the car they found a home on.

    That's great. Head back over to that world where people might actually care about the BS you spew on a daily basis. Lone hater removed from the thread, long overdue. Ps, show us one of YOUR slips with a 1.1 60ft. I am sure I will be waiting as long for you to bring your slow car to either dyno heads up or race, as we would be for that slip. Don't let the door hit ya on your way out now! :handgestures-thumb:

    How tall are the 275s in question though, 28"? Its hard enough fitting 26" tall tires on my car... :/

    I'm not taking it seriously. I'm just providing an objection based on my observations for those who don't want to take VTT word as fact. In other news...if you want straight line traction you need a taller tire not a wider one. We can cut 1.1 60' with 275 radial pros all day in the Corvette world, and that's on IRS.

    Dear me, the comments are coming from off topic posts from the beginning of this thread. And always from a few. All the datazaps here and on other forums present low IAT supression for this cooler. That is real data. Want some other Only Tony verification, because road logs and dyno testing now seem to mean nothing, buy one and add to the real data. On topic. poop

    No reading or literary comprehension issues over here, but I think you might suffer from some. Show me where Toyo calls the R888r a drag radial, please. https://www.toyotires.com/tire/pattern/proxes-r888r-dot-competition-tires It's a track tire, for cars that turn. You guys and your mythical 700hp. Power isn't fun if you're too stupid to put it down. Boost by gear, proper suspension, some research on wheels, offsets, clearances and rubber compounds... It all goes a long way. Hilarious that I legitimately replied to help the dude out, (because he thinks his tire setup is about as aggressive as you can go on a street car with narrow fenders, ha!) and both of you act defensive over big power vs stock twin power. My e46 M3 was making 650whp / 600 lb-ft. You guys assume everyone who doesn't slap a big single turbo on their N54 has no experience putting power down.

    The car is very scary on the street, I drive it with kid gloves these days. Even with 275 Hoosier DOT 2 Drag Radials we cannot hook up at all in any gear under 4th unless we warm the tires. Then its hit or miss if it will hook up in 3rd. If we want to try to launch the car, it takes fully warmed slicks, and a full prepped drag strip, that is the only way. Last time we had it at the strip it was making 100WHP less, and it sheared the Diff input shaft, we have since gone to M3 diffs. We plan to take it back to the strip soon, and drop the car down into the 10's if we don't break anything.

    You have trouble reading or understanding? He already has drag radials and this is a 700hp car not just fbo. Traction is non existent when you go beyond fbo and don't reduce boost by gear.

    The point was not to claim that FBO was in any way a comparison for 700hp. That number will always be hard to put down on the street. However, to your point and your situation, you can run a much larger tire than a 265 without doing some gross widebody kit. You could also switch to drag radials if you were so inclined. Just because this thread is about comparisons, doesn't mean every post will follow suit. Good luck with your unusable horespower though. 700hp sounds like a hoot in low gears. :laughing-rofl:

    285 is still pretty tiny. I plan on going to a widebody kit to run 305-315 which should hopefully do better. I don't think FBO w/e40 is hitting 700hp, is it? If not I don't think that's a fair comparison. Unless FBO has come a ways since I last looked. :)

    265 is a tiny tire. What wheel are you running out back? Something in the 17 or 18x10 range +40 ET, you'll be able to get a 285 at least. I run an 18x10 et40 with a 275/35 RT615-k, with a 10mm spacer just for looks and I still have room to spare... This setup with an LSD and a slew of proper suspension / chassis mods, and I have traction in 1st, FBO w/ e40.

    Tony@VargasTurboTech repped for a fun post. Your twins dominate in the low/midrange for sure. I'm curious how this translates to the streets? On my 700hp ST build (6266 DOCRace kit), with LSD and 265 R888R's out back, I barely get any traction in 2nd and none in first. I think these tires are about as aggressive as you can get on a street car, other than the size limitations caused by our narrow tubs. So what are you guys doing to put down that midrange power?

    Actually, drove from Brisbane on holiday and got our 135 (yes 135) serviced and walnut blasted during a time where I wasn't able to do it myself. (Don't have the 130 any more fwiw, just a different 135 now) Experiences with advan and a couple other shops are actually why I'm in the trade myself now.. So no, opinions based on both, including spending hard earned money lol Yeah I've seen plenty of aus n54 stuff from advan over the years, I'd like to say I do mean it would be nice to see advan shake off any bad rep and be worth recommending again. Not just "nah there's nothing wrong, advan is the best!" Yes it would be nice to get back on topic, would like to see it properly tested with pre and post temps as said a few times. Real information and data not just "the best the best the besttttt Theeeeeee beeeeeesssssttt"

    I agree, its a great comparison. Similar boost, similar timing, similar tappering, same tuner. I left work early so we could dyno the same day with same conditions. 20mins apart. Once we get a chance to do a run Ill post the video. Going off an onramp pull we did it should be real close. :)

    Thank you for sharing! As you can see in my first post, I didn't want to add a bunch of drama so I said Brand X even when I knew what the kit was. Was just a cool comparison, but this forum can't survive without drama. My apologies
