• DCT Build Part VIII - Putting it back together

      As of right now, the transmission is completed and the cooling system is in the process of being completed. Where we left off was the car being taken to SSP for the build of the cooling system. To make this all make sense we will not skip ahead, instead showing you each step. Here SSP is getting ready to put it together with the new clutch discs. They laid out all the parts and used 3d scanning equipment to record them to aid in the production of the parts. Everything was laid out to make sure the parts were clean and accounted for. Additionally, they were working on prototype viton seals for the transmission. The next update will have details on the cooling system.

        Joe, why so sensitive on this point? All I said is that you must feel like you have been used after seeing your build take three years....all of a sudden I am an arrogant douchebag for saying this?

        Guy sure does talk a a lot of $#@! for not even having a working car....
        You talk a lot of $#@! for a car I'd be embarrassed to show up to an event with. Nobody is getting raped by your 335i it isn't worth anyone's time who is talking here. Stay on the sidelines.

I would not be suprised if they already tried to fire it and there was an issue, motor was built and on a stand ready to install ten days ago, I am not aware of any meth injection systems that take ten days to plumb in. Think about it, ten days since Gintani themselves posted a photo of a completed motor and not even a hin that the car has fired yet.

        ....but according to Sticky I am the idiot lol
        You are the idiot, sorry, not trying to sit here and be nice to a guy crapping all over everything and thinking he knows everything when he screws up even the basics.

        This isn't about you. This isn't your car. This isn't your time. This isn't your money. So kindly stop talking already. This is my forum, my car, my time, and I'm going to do as I please, got it? Now I am going to put you directly in your place and remind you who runs what here. You're only response needs to be "yes sir" as I'm not indulging you're ego stroking any longer.

        My build thread, get lost.

        How stupid are you? I have been letting everyone know sorry if you can't keep up due to all the idiots pissing and moaning about the past and build time. Blah blah blah it took so long blah blah blah. We'll see what they say when struggling with an M3 on low boost.

        I don't care old man, this isn't about you. This is my build thread. Get over YOURSELF and maybe I need to send you to charm school as you are sorely lacking in class.

Drew has a car which runs and will run much faster than yours and neither Jim or I are getting on his case.
        Ya I made it about you when you come into my build thread pissing all over it like a low class piece of trash. I'm not asking your opinion or what you think, I'm telling you. Once again, thread isn't about you get it through your head. Read this as many times as it takes.

        Says the bench racer of the year.

        Perhaps if you were not going around saying how fast your car was going to be you would have been given more slack.

        Oh you mean when people ask what a setup is capable of and discussing the car that's bench racing?

        You seem to have forgotten I set records with this car before you ever had a CLK. It's a build thread for discussing the car, not for stroking your ego.

        If you want to go put the car and myself down you can go to a different thread.

        They supercharged my car pretty quickly early on when every company didn't even have a kit out. And it was damn fast. Well before you even learned of Weistec, ok?

        So please stop putting my tuner and vendor down. If someone was doing to Weistec what you are doing to Gintani you would be pissing and moaning across the entire forum.

        So just stop acting like a child and stop putting people down. Act your age, GROW UP, and if not, then just shhhhhh.
        Here we go with all the rocket science S65 and DCT excuses again.


        $#@! Sticky, you are quick to call me stupid but you are the god damn dumbest mother $#@!er posting in this thread....the $#@!ing motor is built so quit using lame excuses, the DCT has been done, the motor has been done for nearly two weeks, so why the $#@! isnt the car running yet????

        I'm not indulging this any longer. Last time I say it. Depending on the next responses I remove you guys from the thread. Period. This is a build thread not something for you to jerk off over.

        no to drive like that, but ill paraphrase italianstallion, it gets to a point where the only other cars are other gtrs to race, everyone shows up with a gtr, and its just about who put more $$ into it because anyone and everyone builds them. nothing unique. they are what they are, but its just too common now

        Please don't ban me from this awesome thread Sticky....there has been such a flow of imformative information from you and Gintani over the past three year in this thread it is a plethara of pertinent and useful information. Probably one of the most useful threads of all time, if there was a Forum Hall of Fame this thread would have to have a shot at getting.


        Not lock me out or do whatever you have to do, hit me with the rep stick again and take what little rep points you left me, take all of them. Fact of the matter is you got corn holed by Gintani and everyone is laughing their ass off at you and Gintani. You $#@!ing prance around here like you are the most knowledable $#@! on the planet, if you are so brighthow come you got bent over on this build.

        Let us know when your BMW Gintani NASA lunar landing vehichle is running

        No one is jerking on you. You should be flattered the the level of anticipation on your build is so high. Personally I can't wait to see how fast the car goes as it should be nothing short of breathtaking. Maybe as common folk my expectation of how fast your car will be is too high.

        If there is anything we can do to help you please let us know.

        Either pick up a wrench or STFU and wait patiently. If you have any questions contact info for Gintani and SSP exists. Call and get whatever answers you need so you can sleep at night.
