" I say google / youtube the topic and you will find out many crazy things. Not sure but "food inc" might be one of the movies on the topic. The way I see GMO (mostly Monsanto) is to control the market, once they (farmers) buy your seeds you can engineer whatever to make them buy more of your seeds and other products. In other words, they are hooked on your crap and money in the bank. Like all things follow the money trail... There are many other "controversial" topics, like the federal reserve (not a government institution). As well as things Nikola Tesla worked on and I think the key defining moment for our generation was that J.P. Morgan said to Nikola Tesla in 1900s or so "if you cannot put a meter on it, it will not work". In other words, if you invent something where you "can't put a meter on", then how are you going to collect money?

But hey, most people believe the news 100% (holy truth) and say you are crazy if you ask why "

The program for the weekend was
Friday arvo - test session
Saturday morning - 400m standing start races
Saturday arvo - 800m roll races
Sunday morning - 800m roll races
Sunday arvo - 1km vmax runs (one car at a time) "

Like I said I've seen Turner put them on sale for $2,250 not too long ago, I think that's a good deal. And someone on here was parting out their car and only had like 7k miles or something on some clubsports selling for $1800 I think, maybe even less. @nafoo maybe?
I'll see if @ModBargains.com can get a me a good deal. Time is of the essence though. "

Sticky created the thread Turbo vs naturally aspirated AMG power - 2013 Renntech tuned E63 AMG M157 vs 2014 Weistec tuned SLS AMG Black Series M159.
" Here is a great comparison featuring the best naturally aspirated V8 powerlpant in AMG's history going up against AMG's newer turbocharged design. The M159 V8 in the SLS Black Series is a 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 and this particular car is tuned by Weistec along with featuring long tube headers. As Weistec Engineering demonstrated last month their SLS Black Series tune with headers is good for over 600 horsepower at the wheels on 91 octane pump gas.


The E63 AMG is a 2013 rear wheel drive model. This car has a tune from Renntech along with RADO downpipes said to be good for around the 630 wheel horsepower range. Torque is in the turbo M157's favor with 735 lb-ft at the wheels. The M159 by contrast has 463 lb-ft at the wheels which is a very large difference on paper. Nobody will deny turbocharged motors are capable of big torque numbers.

That said, the SLS Black Series features tighter gearing and a much higher redline at 8000 rpm. It's a motor with a definite breathing advantage at higher revs.

Power and torque are in the E63's favor (at a lower rpm) but the SLS Black Series is roughly 600 pounds lighter. The SLS also has a dual clutch transmission whereas the E63 is using the MCT wet-clutch automatic. "

No, that's way high. should be $2499 regular retial. ~$2099 for V2. I've seen multiple 10% deals and 15% off deals though, so I wouldn't pay over $2300 for the V3 "

" @Sticky the only set above the KW V3 are the clubsport. I was looking at the V2 myself, but V2 only have height and rebound adjustment whereas V3 has rebound and compression adjustments. $400 difference, I personally don't see the value, but I'm not setting my car up for road course. But I dunno, I suppose it's always nice to have that added adjustment.

I will say general assessment from everyone I talk to BMW or not KW seem to be #1 option. "

As far as coilovers I have kw3 on my s2000 and with tweaking I could put down 609whp / 400ish trq on some pretty awful tires from 40 rolls. If I ever went nuts with the m3 I would probably go that same route.
I guess I'll go with the KW's. Going to see how much they are.

The basic ones are all I need? "
