    And I wish Porsche would give me a 918 Spyder to test for a weekend in Vegas.

    My employer doesn't play much base 34 and when they do it's almost all "over" fronts with the tackle shaded between the center and guard. Point is, he's not a player i've spent much time on. With that said, was hard not to notice him. Bulk, anchor, thick lower body with relatively long arms. Plays w leverage and hip snap, not an explosive first step but gets inside opponent's pads and once he locks out it's usually game over for the Center. Pretty special feet for a guy of his size. Some tightness in his hips, doesn't move laterally all that well but can effectively hold the POA and allow LBs to flow downhill. For teams that value a true 34 nose, he'll probably carry a first round grade. Pretty scheme-limited. Not enough twitch or bend to play 3 tech 43 tackle, but probably too much bulk and not enough length to play 34 5 tech end. He'll be a good one.

    If we just used common sense about this entire incident. They knew the weather was going to be awful, the deflating them gives you better grip, Tom Brady already said he likes the balls to be deflated as much as legally possible (which doesn't mean he wants to under inflate them, but he prefers them low). All common sense signs say they did it. On that note SEAHAWKS SEAHAWKS SEAHAWKS! Wish I had tickets to go out to AZ, but for the same price I could buy a new 80" TV and watch it in the comfort of my own home .

    The e90 is heavier, and also much more refined than e36 M3. It makes the car feel like it is moving much slower than it really is. The e36 and e90 drive and feel 100% different.

    That would be cool indeed. Unfortunately such a hassle on this car to swap turbos! This is why we just always concerned ourselves with drag times, the RB cars always have seemed to lay down the numbers there. The dyno thing is something we'd shined at initially, but the constant 500-550rwhp #'s got old after 2012. The induction movement has really opened it all back up again which is awesome, and exciting, like its 2010-2011 again. Rob

    The DSM community used to do this. It wasn't forum sponsored though. A dedicated enthusiasts would contact vendors for products for comparisons. I can remember vividly an intake manifold comparison done. The car owner came out of pocket for dyno time (a few forum members pitched in on it though) and some of the companies that manufactured the manifolds donated/loaned some manis for testing. Same was done with cams and turbos.

    This may be the first McLaren P1 and LaFerrari comparison test to provide some real data. CAR Magazine put up a pathetic attempt at a comparison between the two last year. Automobile Magazine does a much better job in their write up and data but something still feels amiss. These are very fast million plus dollar supercars that are the absolute bleeding edge of high performance hybrid technology for street cars. That is all fine and dandy but these are not dragsters. Where is the track comparison component? It is somewhat odd we only get 1/4 mile acceleration figure and that some of the other data listed is based off estimates. They did not weigh the cars for example. How much these cars weigh with their hybrid drivetrains and how close the real world weight is to the manufacturer claims is kind of a big deal. We want to see how light high performance hybrid drivetrains can be made. 3150 pounds for the LaFerrari sounds great on paper but it is an estimate. It may way that much or it could be lighter or heavier. The only way to know for sure is to actually test it. Why have a test and omit this? The biggest omission though is the lack of laptimes from a professional driver. Which one of these cars laps a track the quickest? Automobile sort of dances around this stating the P1 sticks with the LaFerrari around Maranello roads. You may know Maranello is in Italy and you may be getting the feeling this was a Ferrari controlled test hence the lack of real data. We do get acceleration figures but considering the article reeks of Ferrari influence and control how much faith do we put into them? Would Ferrari release figures showing anything less than superiority from the LaFerrari? Why is there no video? How were the cars tested? What equipment? Were they tested on the same day? Are you starting to see the problem here? Although this is the best 'comparison' if you want to call it that to date it is still severely lacking. It may be due to Ferrari politics which it probably is. Either way, this is far from over.

    Actually I wish you would fund a few people that would properly test the vendors equipment similar to how tuner mags used to. I'd love to see the same car, same dyno compare and compare all the Turbo options, Intakes etc and then mix in a 2-3 different tuner maps to the mix. Then people wouldn't have to worry about the market Hype it would all be clear.

    Their mustang dyno reads pretty low so I'm sure you won't get any negative feedback.

    100% correct on some levels, but on others incorrect. Leaving say stock turbos in place, and trying to make 475WHP, you really really have to push them hard to get there, spinning very high shaft speeds, high levels of BP, and EGT. Now if you take say a set of Stage 2's, and go for 475, you can feasibly run say 16 psi and hit that target, with much less shaft speed, and BP, and EGT. When going bigger you do remove material to make the turbos bigger, you remove as little as possible, and only from places needed. We also add the upgraded thrust to help take the higher thrust loads of the bigger wheels. We couple all this with out dual piston rings, to help keep problems to a minimum. So far it seems to be working pretty well. As far as the HPFP, being diesel guys forever, we really did get the idea from those trucks, it was a feat to pull off, but we are happy with how it came out, thanks for the compliment!. Here is log from last night. Finally got the Fuel-it Stage 3 in, and with our Shotgun PWM controller set to less than half output, the HPFP rail pressures are beyond excellent, I am actually going to cut the PWM down a little bit, keep it in the 14-15 range..:) http://www.datazap.me/u/vargasturbotech/stage-2-silicone-intakes-jb-12-lpfp-stage-3-1?log=0&data=1-3-4-10-14-17

    Personally, I'd prefer if vendors did nothing other than share their data and results which would do all the talking for them. This forum is about being able to stand on your own two feet with the numbers and data backing you, not moderators.

    I don't know the guys at VRSF. Reading the forums, well, 24/7 practically means I do see a lot of results with various vendors. VRSF has been a mixed bag from what I've seen. I'm sorry about your experience and if they were a vendor here I'd make sure your situation was handled differently but it is what it is. For me the bad publicity would not be worth that little sum of money. AR Design's ownership has changed hands so I can not speak to their quality any longer. I do know in that past they were a high quality option and they still may be.

    The curb weights are estimated yet the 1/4 mile numbers are supposedly accurate? Interesting.
