    The Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix is always interesting and the 2016 iteration certainly delivered. The race did not start in exciting fashion as rain was coming down and the safety car stayed out for the first seven laps of the race in the interest of driver safety. Finally the cars were allowed to go at it as the rain subsided and immediately Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo who had the pole position started to build an impressive lead. Nico Rosberg of Mercedes-AMG was in second place but consistently lost ground to Ricciardo while holding up teammate Lewis Hamilton. For whatever reason, Hamilton looked much faster and Rosberg looked slow. Rosberg was so slow that the commentators speculated something was wrong with his car. As Monaco is a tight course Hamilton struggled to get around Rosberg who finally was told to let Hamilton by. Immediately Hamilton started to make up ground while Rosberg fell further and further back. Because Rosberg held up Hamilton Ricciardo built himself a nice 10+ second lead. It would all evaporate (heh, get the pun?) after a Red Bull pitstop that went horribly wrong. Tire management was huge in this race as with the track conditions drying up and the sun coming out drivers began to switch to softer compounds. The only problem is that when Ricciardo came in to switch his tires his tires were not there. He literally sat there waiting for roughly ten seconds until the tires were brought out. Well, this gave Hamilton the lead. Ricciardo did not quit and kept at it but Hamilton fended him off. There was a questionable situation where Hamilton cut a corner and blocked Ricciardo which could have been the difference with the difficulty of passing in Monaco but the stewards dismissed the incident and did not penalize Hamilton. He would go on to win the race. The conditions claimed many victims. Max Verstappen (the much praised Red Bull driver who became the youngest to win an F1 race in the previous Grand Prix) crashed out. Kimi Raikkonen, Jolyon Palmer, Felipe Nasr, Daniil Kvyat, Kevin Magnussen, and Marcus Ericsson did not finish the race. Lewis Hamilton would end up celebrating while Daniel Ricciardo said he got screwed. He was quite upset. Sergio Perez who finished in third and held Sebastian Vettel from the podium was quite pleased with himself. It was an interesting race to be sure and it drew out all kinds of celebrities including Justin Bieber who for some reason was celebrating with Hamilton which looked awkward to say the least. Next up is the Canadian Grand Prix on June 12th.

    It's not a very organized event, that's for sure. Problems of a low-budget track under new leadership who only cares about drags. I only take a car to the track to fuck around and have fun, not to seriously improve. That's gay. Real men cut two wheels off and drag knee. As for the music, my apologies. The plan was to video a couple laps later on, when the rain stopped, and I could turn DSC off and burn some tires. And the point-by, I guess it's a good thing it was only a Vette.

    Sure, I get that, but is BBQ'ing really supposed to be difficult? The pellet stuff looks good to me.

    lol, must be a pretty chill (maybe too chill) club to let you play music and have random stuffed toys in the cabin while on track. lots of no-no from that video though (no point bys? that's a receipt for disaster especially for newcomers with very little situational awareness). perhaps try driving with another club that actually spend some time teaching you the basics, if you want get more out of your money next time you spend it on track days.

    I think the CP blew because of Journey. No car should ever be subjected to such poor music.

    Depending on where you live, heat breaks the oil down. I used it once and after 2k miles, the oil was a lot more thin than when I drain RP, after 3k miles.

    Got these installed and fixed an O2 problem on my car. Thanks Chris for the amazing service. Best vendor I have worked with on the BMW scene so far, and I've worked with most of them now.

    Vargas has done this with the n55 turbo. Converted to a normally closed wastegate and a mac type solenoid. Not sure if he still has I available to purchase

    Yes, I am well aware of the issue with the VAG 2.0T and the clips that were used on that platform, which is also used by many on our engines. But on what I can gathered, the rattle is made significantly worse on our car, especially on decel and low boost spooling, due to its open default position. Converting the stockframe's wastagate shouldn't be all that expensive, mac solenoid and actuators are all pretty cheap off the shelf items, that hardest part is fabricating the linkage, which really isn't hard at all... Motiv is $8k, and I am not a fan of the replacement passenger side motor mount that is required on all the quick spooling bottom mount manifold, which just doesn't seem all that sturdy for road course use. Nor I am convinced about the mid range and transient response of these non-twin scroll manifold, no matter how small of a turbo you run... And there is the issue with the O2 overheating. As I said, lol, I have a million reasons against going single turbo for my particular use of the car. Top mount, please, that's a horrible idea for track cars with all the heat up top next to the plastic valve cover... JB4 can already do the boost control once the mac solenoid is in place. Curious how does the Motiv kit control the boost on theirs without JB4? Would be nice if Pure or Hexon can think about this alternative wastegate config for their upcoming BB twins.

    Kind of the same reason automatics & awd are looked down upon. Any idiot with a foot can make it go fast. Not much skill is required when a computer does the shifting launching etc. for you.

    Other platforms don't share the same wastegate rattle?!?!? VAG? Really?!?!? VW/Audi made a fucking clip that goes around the wastegate pushrod/actuator linkage to help eliminate the rattle. Lol. Stock turbos are just junk man. If you want low end response and don't care for big power, but want longevity and reliability, then get Jake to pair a small 500hp turbo to the Motiv kit and just replace their vacuum lines with some hard lines from Payam.

    Today I had a couple long cranks on start up. Initially driving fine then started to stutter and reduced power, sounded like it was missing and only running on a few cylinders. Codes 29f2 and 29dc, HPFP? Logged it too where it had no power, felt like it had no turbos. http://www.datazap.me/u/f3adm/v3-ptf-hpfp

    I saw mitch over the weekend and spoke with him in person. Basically, sit tight lol. CPE has a lot of stuff going on with other platforms and has sort of put this on the back burner for a while. Should be done in a little while though.
