    Nothing really new. I been seeing electric cars on the race track for years. There was a famous old rx7 full of batteries in the late 90s. I do agree battery technology is leaps and bounds better but the concept is old. Instant torque off the line!

    I listened to what they were accusing him of and that is not what he said at all. The Nazi label didn't get him, the fascist label didn't get him, the alt-right label didn't get him, the white supremacist label didn't get them, but they finally found one that worked in the pedophile label. What he was trying to say is people mature at different rates so what age works for one sexually may not work for another. It isn't one size fits all. He went about it wrong saying he enjoyed it and thought he was mature enough. He wasn't mature enough to realize he was being taken advantage of.

    I'm not criticizing you. I'm just saying the factory DME tuning will need to evolve or a standalone will need to be used before then. I understand this is uncomfortable but this is the reality of aftermarket BMW cams.

    Cool, thas's a great response joe. So basically lets do this. Hey everyone. We have new turbos for sale. They cost $1500 bucks when you install them, the DME will freak out, and you can't run them. You have to then spend time, or pay to have them removed BUT just hold on, tuning for them will come in time. In the mean time, thanks for your money, did we test them, of course not, but we promise they are better than stock. Thas's essentially what Schrick pulled

    They make cams. They aren't tuners. Cam tuning is up to... the tuners. This is how it was early with the S54 too.

    Unfortunately, this is why cams are very difficult and why you can't just toss anything in and how domestic pricing/application doesn't even remotely apply. Cam tuning will come. It's just that doing so with the stock DME at this time will be challenging. A quality tuner who really knows his stuff will be necessary. It's how it always is in the beginning. Tony obviously can't wait but to the rest of you, be patient. It will get worked out.

    Our stage 4 bucketless bracket design / revision has been finalized and we have started production. They should be ready by the end of next week :) :) It's a pretty big step up & our stage 2 bucketless customers will be able to upgrade.

    Don't remember exactly. Rotated about 5 of them. Either vanos mechanical faults, or time correlation faults. Pulled vc off checked timing it was good, put it back together, same thing. Swapped cams this am, no issues with stock cams. Car runs great. I'm actually pretty bummed about it, I had hope of more power with less boost with these cams. Guess it remains to be seen

    I've tried contacting Schrick many times, I have never received a single response, I cannot imagine now would be any different. I also emailed VAC today, which I always get a response within 5 minutes, I was promptly ignored. This leads me to believe they are figuring what to tell all these people who bought cams, that may require adjustments to tables we do not yet have access to, or maybe its going to be a super simple fix who knows, but I can tell you my email was not answered

    It's a couple days before a race -not the time to be sorting through this stuff. We're going to go have a good time at SS with stock cams then revisit this and figure it out -just not before SS. Payam already promised me burgers. Chris

    Did you even attempt to reach out to Schrick? What did they say? I would be surprised if they didn't test these on a car. Maybe they know something we don't?

    Motiv on their shop car or motiv on a customer car? Very different things. I'm sure if it is a deeper issue even, it'll be able to be sorted. Lots of people want this now it's so damn close lol

    So 7mm is just over a quarter of an inch so why the 1 inch in disparity in the two BS sizes being suggested? Just asking because I am headed this way as well this month it looks like.
