    Nice, this is some serious looking hardware. Will anodized options be available? I Have a thing for stealthy anodized black parts. Can't wait to see the data.

    Also he was running a bias ply. When launching a manual hard like that a bias ply will have more give to it cushioning the blow somewhat which is important if you want to leave the line with your rear end coming with you.

    Then that professional driver was Shiv because he drove it himself. Say what you want but he can drive and deserves respect for his pass. People like to hate him but at least get it right when doing so.

    No, he doesn't. The reason you see 17 and 18 inch drag radials today is because these modern cars that are drag racing come with large rotors and wheels from the factory. The damn Porsche 911 wears 20 inch factory rims now. Why anyone would be against 'too much tire' or 'too much sidewall' when trying for a record ET is beyond me as that goes against the entire point of drag racing. Even all wheel drive cars like the GTR are going to slicks with a ton of sidewall to hook. 17 and 18 inch drag radials are fine for people who want to use off the shelf rim solutions (maybe even the OEM rim) or who aren't trying to set records but if you are going all out you might as well do it right.

    No offense to you Tony I was drag racing E9X's years before you ever decided to get into this market and I doubt you have ever cut a 60 foot close to what I have. Just because you hook does not mean it is enough tire. The difference between hooking and doing a 1.7x and 1.6x is 2-3/10's in the 1/4 mile. Both are hooking but clearly one is hooking better than the other. Secondly, going to a 15 inch 'slick' is not a waste with 700+ whp. Frankly, with that much power you want the extra sidewall so it is easier on the driveline. This is drag racing 101.

    It's not so much subtract, but as rpm/speed increase the numbers trend down slightly, so I'd usually just round down so it gets the gear right as the shift is a massive change in values. But strictly speaking you don't really have to subtract anything. Thing is, we can calculate all day based on gear ratios, but if you can't log the actual channels, it's just better to err on the low end of the values. Regardless, it will be much more accurate than you have now. The bmw speedo seems to read high irl so you may want to consider that in the math as well. Example- 7000rpm/60kph= 116.667 but if bmw uber accurate speedo reads high, 7000/65=107.69 and if you used the higher value, you'll see a gear change in a log. The actual gear change will lead to like 5000/65=76.9 so there's wiggle room

    5 torque limit tables need a checksum while being flashed in the DME. MHD flasher is able to do this, BB can't. so you won't be able to flash a bin with BB if one of those tables is edited. with MHD, you still need to edit those torque limit tables, so you'll be able to check if the shift bog fix works on your car.

    Sweet looking IC! If I didn't have a custom bumper support holding mine up I'd give it a shot. What does it weigh?

    I believe that is Shiv. The dude can drive. 5500rpm clutch drop and it held together. Those shifts were perfect too. Respect given where it is due.

    There are two intercoolers available. An 800hp and a 1000hp. I assume would be ok if I post info and prices, but I'll let him give me the ok first. Tony@VargasTurboTech you cool with me replying to questions about the IC in this thread?

    Yes that's right, it was Abid & Shiv who tested them open inlets, all those years ago. In any event Rob Beck, myself, and everyone else just took their test at face value and never bothered to confirm. Shame on all of us. And kudos to Brian if he was the first to retest and find out the truth. I thought it was Donny, Ray & Co but might be off on my timing of how that went down. At some point Vargas ran open turbos too. Given how fast the OEM style twins have become we're probably going to switch our FFTEC E92 back over and will reevaluate the inlet situation then. I'll hit the dyno one last time with the 6266 bottom mount but it seems capped out around 725whp. If we can make 700whp with twins with a faster spool it will be a worthwhile downgrade IMHO.

    I've only had the 135i out once with the single. The track situation in socal is dismal these days. In 2nd gear it would make at most 2-3psi off the line. =/ Car also had a faulty fuel pump and false KR all over the place. The next event is Aug 24th so I'll probably take the 135i back then to see if I can improve the trap at least. :)

    I could have sworn Shiv was driving the first time he broke into 10's because in one of the videos he was "scolded" after the pass because he wasn't caged or something and it was required for sub-11 cars. I can't remember, I thought I saw something like that. Anyone know what I'm remembering?
