    • - No Fly Zone - 3/2/2013 roll on race event pictures and impressions

      GermanBoost.com is happy to report that the No Fly Zone private airstrip roll on race event was a resounding success. A lot of serious hardware showed up and Tony from Omega Motorsport Events did an excellent job organizing everything. Everyone knew where to go and what to do. The pictures below showcase what was there and how things looked quite well. Yes, everyone wants race videos and those will all be coming shortly and will be posted throughout the week.

      For now, enjoy the pictures. The organization was well done and there are photos showing the quality of the tarmac. I think all participants who experienced this event as well as another competing event can state this venue and tarmac were of much higher quality.

      For those who want an event T-Shirt please private message me here or E-mail me at admin@germanboost.com. T-Shirts are $20 each.

      I would also like to personally thank Tony and his wife as well as @Weistec and @Terry@BMS . For some inexplicable reason Weistec and Burger Tuning just treat myself and this entire network incredibly well. They also always behave like complete professionals. A personal shout out as well to @JRCART (as well as his friend Rich) who brought out his vehicles and came in all the way from Chicago and @LZH who had some car trouble but still came out.

      Looking forward to doing this type of event again soon... with my own car in the mix. Photos below.

        There's the cheap/easy way, and then the hard way. We'll see which one is more satisfying... hopefully next month.

        I'm Stage 2 which has the intercooler with a 96mm pulley and 91 octane tune. Supposed to make 6.5psi but for some reason I'm only seeing 5.25psi on mine as measured during my dyno runs at EAS. Here's what a Stage 3 ESS M3 did to me at the shiftsector Coalinga event:

        hey Longboarder,isnt stage 3 just a pulley upgrade or is the stage 3 with internals?Also have you uploaded the run against the 135i?want to see that,thx.

        My C also has a pump gas tune and stock internals. my car will be out there a few more weeks, maybe we can set something up if you get a stage 3 installed or find a stage 3 car for me to race.

        God Damn bro, here we go again, ETA went from days to weeks to another month....WTF, why don't you just pull the car and send it to Weistec?

        That supercharged C63 was pretty quick. I think they said it went 11.1@130 at Famaso on 91 octane? I did 11.1@129 at Famoso but had to run meth + E85 fuel to get there. On 91 alone I'd be lucky to hit 125mph.

        Actually I was referring to the event date.

        ESS Stage 3 (VT3 725-775) is their built motor kit:
        • Compression Lowered to 10:1
        • Forged Pistons & Rods
        • ESS Fueling System
        • OEM Alusil block untouched (no sleeves)
        • Vortech V3Si Supercharger 12psi for DCT; 14 psi for 6MT


        Like I said, even if you're a 6MT like Izzy (img) you're only getting another 75 WHP from a lowered compression & increased boost over the VT2-650 kit (stock motor/CR).

        You could probably get close to the same gain on the stock internals with C16...

        Roman@ESS actually commented about a Race Gas tune for their kits (ironically in the M3Post thread with the No Fly Zone videos) and here's what he had to say:

        BUT we all know how good ESS is at tuning & that Roman's a salesman, not a tuner.

        I see more salesman there as well.

        The stock software won't adjust timing as well as a proper dyno tune for the proper fuel especially when blown.

        He's talking about compression ratio as the be all end all but saying nothing about cylinder pressure or EGT's. I mean, Weistec keeps the compression stock on their built motor setups. Something to think about.

        I still would bet one could get just about even with their built motor setups on the stock internals with an aggressive tune, C16 or E85, and more boost. Regardless, if you want to go past a certain point lack of sleeves is going to cause problems. So, really, mild boost only.

        Thanks Tony, the event was a huge success, I had a blast and it was well run and organized.

Does anyone have video of these races against my silver C6 ZO6? I also ran and beat the red Viper (1/2 car when he went into fifth), Audi R8 v10, red '13 Shelby GT500 two times, black '11 GT500, red '03 Cobra Mustang (showed 625hp). I lost to the black 458 Italia by 1/2 car and the white GTR (600hp displayed and on e85) by one car and Terry's car mentioned earlier by one car. I would love to see any video that's available. I know several of the drivers were surprised to lose to a basically stock ZO6 (CAI and a tune) with an old man driving (especially the '03 Cobra who warned me he had busted off the ZR1, and felt so confident that he had a passenger along to see his inevitable win. I told him the ZR1 driver was...well, not as capable), but the vids would be greatly appreciated.
        You must have the worlds fastest "stock" Z06.... It's too bad you backed out of our race or I'd have some video to share with you. Instead, here's a video of me, in my stock ZR1, running a stock GTR (545 HP) and the TT Z06 for reference. Maybe you can give me some old school race savvy tips for straight lines? I also beat the grey F458, even after hitting the fuel cut off (whoops), but the 750 HP white M3 was the closest race for me and he pulled about 1/2 a car length I think right about the finish. I've only been driving a stick for a month and a half, since I bought the car, but I don't believe you have a "stock" Z06 turning better times than the ZR1 due to your miraculous driving... maybe I'm wrong.

        Well when the VF supercharged E92 M3 was featured on Tuned with Matt Farah, they ran it on a Race Gas tune with 700 BHP (same V3Si blower, DCT equipped car & fully catless)


        Sneaking out another 50 BHP (over the ESS 650 kit) with 100 octane+ isn't that difficult to believe

        It's very possible as I said just depends how aggressive you want to get with the stock internals but 11 psi on 12.0:1 and 11 psi on say 10.0:1 with the same blower used are actually two very different things.

        Yea, def not gonna argue with that. 9psi (while running C16) is prob the highest amount of boost you'd wanna run on a stock motor; I mean the VF650 runs 7.5-8psi on 93 octane

        No idea why ESS bothers with going to 10:1 compression build. My mustang runs 11:1 and alot 900+whp 2011 mustangs run 11:1 compression as well on built motors.
