    If you are an avid reader of this network (and you should be) then you remember an article from a few months back of a 991 Turbo S versus a Lamborghini Aventador in a standing kilometer drag race. The 991 Turbo S won the drag race but the Aventador had the higher trap speeds meaning it was pulling harder up top. That standing kilometer result means that from a roll the Aventador should win against a stock 991 Turbo S. Well, last month we happened to see an Aventador go up against two 991 Turbo S models. The Aventador beats both of the 991 Turbos. So what happens if the 991 Turbo S gets a tune and full exhaust? What you see below. From both a stop and a roll the 991 Turbo S pulls the Aventador and it does so easily. The run from a stop does not feature a launch from either car though and they simply mash the gas. Despite having 'only' a 3.8 liter flat-6 engine versus the Aventador 700 horsepower 6.5 liter V12 the Porsche's turbochargers give it the advantage. It certainly does not hurt it weighs roughly 500 pounds less and has a dual clutch transmission.

    OMG he just can't help himself, he just feels the NEED the NEED to sell his fueling product in another companies fueling dev thread.... so inconsiderate. maybe he is planning turbo upgrade if some form and just simply wants to do supporting mods first and is curious if he can gain some power while setting up for it, till the decision on an upgrade or funds are ready. techmaster05 you could see some small gains with the fuel solution through running 100% e85 nothing major but depending on vehicle plans a great option you'll remove stress from your stock fuel system as well which will make for an increase in pump life depending on how hard you are pushing currently.

    Post a log. Low fuel pressure is usually the result of too much ethanol content. Also did you pull any codes from the car? If it defaulted to map 4 there may be a code triggered on the ECU.

    Nah...I've only watched the cutups of Bortles' throws last night. No way i'd suffer through that abomination of a game.

    More random thoughts.... 1. I didn't spend a ton of time on Manziel pre-draft. Felt I knew his game well, and my employer wasn't going to be positioned to draft him anyways. Regardless, he's an intruiging talent, so I re-watched his first start front to back. Ugly stuff. V small in the pocket, no stature or presence. Brees plays easily 3-4" taller in reality than Manziel. Thin build, will not take the rigors of playing outside the pocket. Issue is, that's the only way he can be productive right now. Horrendous footwork, even for a rookie. The bust potential is strong with this one, and I know plenty of folks who feel even more negative than I do. This is totally unacceptable 2. The Jets are really awful. However Sheldon Richardson is not. Anyone who wants to see what a quality 3 technique looks like, just go watch him for a bit. Plays with power, leverage, hip snap, and recognition. A damn good player. 3. I'm slightly surprised at the extent to which the Jets have cut into Jeremy Kerley's snaps. He's a good player, and easily the most consistent target for Geno. It's probably in an effort to get Percy more touches, but IMO it shouldn't come at Kerley's expense. The Jets are not exactly an explosive offense, so who cares if you have to take Decker off the field sometimes? 4. Geno throws an absolutely gross vertical ball. It's not that he struggles with touch (Tom) or velocity (Peyton), it's just bad from start to finish. He slows his release, aims the ball, throws off his back foot, and lets his non-throwing arm go on a semester abroad or something. It jumps off the tape as "wrong". Astounding how poorly coached collegiate players are sometimes...In Morgantown it was just "see it, throw it". 5. Bortles making me look good. If you recall, I wasn't super high on him pre-draft. He flashed early on, but has really struggled since. His mechanics are way out of whack. Again, another example of the jump folks have to account for when scouting a player from a spread-type system. The mechanics are so rudimentary. 6. Astounding fact that I heard. The Jags have had a top 10 pick in the 9 of the last 12 drafts. Total number of Pro Bowls by those 12 players: Uno. 7. More than ever, i'm of the mind that ball placement and decision making are THE traits to scout RE: quarterbacks. I've been burnt too many times locking in on sexy traits like arm strength. If the ball doesn't go where it needs to, your ability to spin it is irrelevant. 8. It makes me sad when I look at the tackles WAS will be trotting out there. For the record, I thought Morgan Moses was a JAG. Ugh.

    We ran a custom Southbend in our stage 3 car, we have been dealers for them for a long time. The clutch was ok, it held the power just fine, never slipped once, but it was a bitch to drive, on and off, no slipping at all, it also didn't last very long, 9 months and it was done, BUT this is not typical as we did literally thousands of 600-700WHP pulls on this clutch, so it prob would last much longer on typical application. If you are going for more than 700WHP, nothing is going to hold the power like the twin disk though.

    All of this nonsense kinda makes me glad I bought a 3+ and steel smfw like a month before the twin disc. At least I won't have to wait for a new clutch if I swap too.

    Email Dave at SouthBend. They have a few discs and combo's of disc surfaces that will suit most people with high power ST setups. I've been talking to him, he is very knowledgable. They can also make you one with any material, puck style, pressure plate, and hub type you'd like
