    triggz started a thread Wedge Log vs V8Bait Log in N54
    Since nobody wants to post a log of Wedge's flash showing all 6 cylinders I decided to show the results. Car is running FBO+100%Meth+94 Oct. I asked Wedge for a Pump/Meth map and he sent me a map stating 12.5* of timing. I figured it's aggressive but safe based on my mods. I logged it and it looked great, BEFORE 6cylinder logging was available. Tested it out again and the results were not impressive. First off, it clearly shows the map is targeting close to 14* of timing which is way too much for 94/Meth. It's safe to say you need E85/Meth/FBO to run this type of tune. http://www.datazap.me/u/triggz/wedge...25-26-27-28-29 Now here is the tune I run on a day to day basis which is much smoother while cruising and the car responds well post shift. http://www.datazap.me/u/triggz/v8bai...25-26-27-28-29 I'm sure if I dropped the additive to 50 from 60, the logs would be even cleaner or adjust auto shift boost reduction. Going for a dyno session this saturday and I will test Wedge's map with a 50 additive, 55 additive and 60 additive along with V8Bait's map 50/55/60 and see if the added timing really produces the results that everyone's butt dyno claims to be feeling. Just be careful what you guys are running out there. You can't just load a tune without logging. I'm sure Wedge's map could be adjusted so that it looks cleaner but he's so busy that I rather not waste my time. FYI, I NEVER had an ugly log with BMS maps. I personally think they are the safest and most reliable Bimmerboost maps you can use for your car.

    Liter plus bikes are pretty damn fast, we know that. Power to weight tends to favor bikes at least stock. This bike is not stock however and is turbocharged putting out 425 horsepower at the wheels on C16. It is basically similar to riding a cruise missile. UGR (Underground Racing) makes some spectacularly fast cars with some of their twin turbo V10 Gallardo's and R8's rumored to be putting out well over the 2000 horsepower mark depending on who you ask. This Gallardo is stated to have '1750' horsepower. Based on a quick power to weight calculation it has around 1.94 pounds per horse. The Hayabusa based on a 425 wheel horsepower number and a ~600 pound weight with fluids and the turbo has 1.41 pounds per horse. The aerodynamics of course favor the Gallardo. So what happens? The Gallardo wins. Why? Well aerodynamics from a roll as stated and probably because it has more power than is being let on. Taking down a Hayabusa on the highway in a car is an incredible feat. A turbo Hayabusa? Well, that requires something truly spectacular. That is exactly what this UGR built Gallardo is.

    Hey guys, with the success of our LSD's (and upcoming final drives), we were interested in introducing more of our product range to the BMW market, and was just wondering if there would be a general interest in our other products: - 1pc Chromoly Racing Flywheels. Made from imported Japanese SAE 4140 Steel. These are Forged, Double Tempered and Super Sub-Zero treated for unsurpassed toughness, with a proprietary surface treatment for increased surface hardness - Hyper-Series Clutch Kits. Lightweight Stage 1 clutch kit with 6-puck sprung carbon metallic disc, coupled with our Racing Flywheel. Rated to approx. 400lbft. Image to come - Spherical-joint Front/Rear Camber and Rear Trailing Arms. These use our specially designed "sealed" spherical bearings, which have self-lubricating teflon lined inners (so do not need lubricating) and a genuine 100% seal from the elements; not just a cheap rubber seal that can be ripped off. Not only do these allow for full 360deg movement, essential in a race environment, they can also be used safely on the road without fear of binding due to the elements. Image to come - Racing Axles. Axle Shafts & 10% larger 6-Ball CV Joints are Forged from High-Nickel Chromoly Steel (300M) & put through our proprietary heat treatment process. Their hollow center shaft core (i.e rifle-bored) reduces rotational weight by 30%! Come with our full Lifetime Warranty Let me know if you have any questions :)

    Audi and Porsche do not really like each other. They have to play nice as Volkswagen owns both of them now but Porsche and Audi each want to call the shots in the luxury segment. As Porsche expands its model lineup it continues to step on Audi's toes. Audi does not like this but Porsche also does not like that Audi made the R8 which definitely targets potential 911 buyers. Each company is taking offense with the other. This in-house battle is increasing as Porsche and Audi both are dumping money into competing platforms. Rather than cooperating each wants to push their own platform. Porsche wants Audi to use its platform for the next generation Panamera for example. Audi wants Porsche to use its platform developed for the next generation Q7 to underpin the Cayenne but Porsche is saying the platform has to many deficiencies including limitations with engine choices. Volkswagen wants everyone in the VW Group to use Audi's design to save costs. Lamborghini apparently is not too happy with Porsche as VW apparently is having Porsche design all the future sports cars in the VW Group. Lamborghini does not like what Porsche has planned for the Huracan successor. Audi who uses the Lamborghini platform for the R8 is also not happy with Porsche's approach so Lamborghini and Audi appear aligned against Porsche. Bentley on the other hand is happy with Porsche and their MSB luxury platform they intend to make use of. Lamborghini wants its own chassis and one designed to accept V10 engines. Porsche is building a chassis around their flat-6 motors which obviously benefits them. Audi uses the Lamborghini V10 so they are with Lamborghini on this one. See the mess? This is what a senior Volkswagen source stated on the matter, "If we donít call the shots here at HQ, Audi and Porsche will never get their acts together. What these guys fail to understand is that they have to cooperate, not fight each other. We need to prevent individual sports car architectures and excessive proliferation, and to make Porscheís MSB mandatory for both brands. Standardize the stuff that is really expensive: drivetrains, electronics, alternative propulsion systems, batteries, materials, methods, and processes. Audi and Porsche must stop fighting over architectures and concentrate on diversification by content. Itís as simple as that. And as difficult.Ē This is a bit of a mess but when so many brands are added into the mix and have overlap it is simply a matter of time before people butt heads. If VW wants to prevent this getting messy they need their executives to step in and dictate who will use what platform. That or they can let the brands compete against each other. Who really wants the same SUV rebadged seven times? It is going to be interesting to see what happens and how this is resolved. Source

    Hey guys, we have acquired a few sets of M5 turbos and are in the process of upgraded them to a nice stage 1 upgrade with clipped turbines, and larger billet compressors. Since we do not own an F10 M5 we are looking for someone willing to test them for us, this would mean installing them, logging, and dynoing the car before and after the install to document results. We are preferably looking a car with upgraded DP's Exhaust, intake, and running a JB4 tune, and meth kit as these parts will be required to take advantage of the turbos. The deal would simply be, you pull your stock turbos send us your cores, and the Stage 1's are yours to keep in exchange for testing and documentation. If anyone is interested please email us at sales@vargasturbo.com with M5 test car in the subject line. Thanks! VTT Team
