      Congrats Boris for smashing the 60-130mph record!

      Here is the vbox data



      and here is a crappy vid of it. Run starts from 4:50. Sorry about the sound, I guess its time to buy a new gopro!

I will be with Boris this weekend at MIR and we will get some vbox runs during his passes. He can easily hit mid 4s without breaking a sweat if he wanted to. Low 4s if he cared about 60-130s lol And when he sprays it game over
        Actually I didn't know that. He already has the record so I mean, pushing it isn't really the priority. I want to see him take the 1/4 record and I think he can.

I need to scramble enough and hopefully get a decent tune on my rig for the 20th. This will definitely not be an easy task.. here is a log that i remember checking from the fast pass days. Its a 56 to 131 run in 4.16 seconds. I was recording speed on a slow datalog channel as the timeslip tells me the real speed... Our borrowed vbox was doing weird things when we tried to use it last time at the track.

        That is a ridiculously awesome time but without a Vbox as Taza said, how accurate is it without knowing the slope or having GPS, etc.?

        probably pretty accurate, i'm sure it was on a drag strip too.

        Donovan's car was no doubt faster than Boris's......cant wait to see what it will do this time around Click here to enlarge

        If Radowski ever gets his big turbo back on his car he should be able to crush it too.

        Fun times for BMW power junkie's.

        It doesn't compare it equally with the vbox times of course. This was at a drag strip so it was relatively flat 0-154 in 9.26 so the math works out to something fast for the 60-130 section.

        I wish we had this kind of support (and cool people) in the MB world geez! We have a few but not like this! I will take my laptop with me this weekend so I can load the new times at night. Might throw the vbox in a couple other cars at the strip this weekend too since I have alot of friends racing. Boris and Donovan both do some crazy things. Don't wanna forget about Mike R and CC either. All really cool guys too

        you've got some cool guys in the MB world for sure, but none of them are seeing times like this, not even close as far as I can tell.

        Adam just told me your building your motor in a few weeks???? details man details!!!

        There is a handful of cool people, but the rest are asshats, no offense. The MB world needs a breath of fresh air.

        Ugh, I hate that, especially if they drop oil.

        This is why I stick to private track rentals now.
