• Gintani Stage 2+ supercharged E92 M3 takes on a bolt on C6 Z06

      The C6 Z06 is a very fast car in stock form. It is lightweight with a big motor that also revs for a strong top end. A Stage 2+ Gintani supercharged M3 with meth injection will put out close to the 600 wheel horsepower range depending on the transmission making for a very strong top end car. The Z06 has a fast intake, tune, and longtube headers along with no cats. The M3 is making more power and has the quicker shifting transmission although the Z06 is lighter with more torque down low.

      In the first race the Z06 loses traction. The M3 is in the wrong gear for the second race going to show that even if one has a lot of power high in the rev range a mistake like this means game over. The third race is a clean run with the M3 pulling up top. Check out the video below.

        Maybe you should try reading the video description? See, I'm going by those involved in the race not a third party trying to discount results just because they have a blower from a different company. Now THAT is hysterical.

        Take it up with the video uploader if you have a problem. Sorry I went with their description of events (plus what we clearly see happen in the video) over a fanboy whining about a different company beating Z06's.

        Oh no, impossible! Gintani Stage 2+ cars can't beat Z06's waaah waaah cry cry.

        I'm an ESS fanboy? Thats almost as ridiculous as the time its taking for your car to hit the street, almost. I couldnt care which kit the car is running, I am just realistic when it comes to the platform and its potential.

        z06 is a monster. it takes alot for any german car to compete with it but.... as far as subjective aesthetics go...
        any one who says that the vette is gorgeous compared to the e92 either has/had a mullet and/or rat tail back in the day. sorry

        If you are realistic about the platform and potential why do you talk down on other setups and continually post negative remarks on non-ESS setups instead of being happy to see the platform being pushed?

        If you are such an enthusiast why are you putting down my car when I am taking the platform to its potential?

        Sorry, don't buy the talk when your actions betray it.

        I have a feeling the west coast z06s are driven by a different breed, the reason erm is saying the video is bull$#@! because for some strange reason, all the ones I have seen on the east coast, either track or street racing, are abosulte monsters.

        Just last month I saw one go 10.3 @ 134 in an auto. i/h/e/c/tune/stall it was also a vert.
        2 months ago there was a younger kid with his dads car that had i/e/tune that was going 128-129 on a bad clutch.

        Personally I have yet to see a run where the results suck.

        Hey guys its my car and someone told me my vid got posted up. I see the comments stopped a little while ago, but in case anyone may still be watching this, there is a gopro version with better sound. Id post the link but I must be a member for at least 1 day before doing so. Check the video uploader's account...

        hah! Its all very entertaining and thanks for posting the link. Huge difference in gear choice. The second run started in 3rd. Also notice in the last run I started just about even with his rear quarter window.

        Some may have seen/heard the car in person..it was bimmerfest in Stealth Auto's booth.
