If you want to race these 2 cars in a straight line and make a story out of it, then if one costs 3 times as much and is slightly faster than yes its completely relevant. Just like it would be relevant if you took them to a road course and the black destroyed the E63. Price would surely be a factor there too, because now you are paying for a purpose built track car that obviously out performs the E class. So yeah bingo.
No idea why you're so fired up. Nobody buy's an E63 for the sole purpose of racing in a straight line on an air strip - it's a performance luxury car that just happens to be rocket ship fast. The SLS Black is a purpose built, street legal race car optimized for track use.They are two completely different cars that just happen to be racing in a straight line. IMO, it doesn't make sense to compare pricing as neither car is engineered, built or sold for the sole purpose of "roll racing". "

Group.america created the thread Eurodyne Tuning Software - Purchased.
" I couln't wait for the COBB 996 Turbo S software so to amuse myself and get some nitty gritty testing experience I bought the Porsche 996 Turbo Eurodyne Maestro 7 Tuning Suite.

http://www.eurodyne.ca/shop/porsche/...r-porsche-996/

The car currently has a tune which we thought was GIAC but it appears from my emails and phone calls with them seems to have been overwritten by a higher boost tune that is too strong for my fueling system currently and/or I have boost leak/s [see below AFRs and boost charts off a 3rd gear pull]

My plan is to get everything dynoed here in NY then take it all from there. The car pulls very hard above 3500 rpm but runs very rich 3500-4500 rpm before levelling more normal and safe AFRs at 4600-7000 rpm

On one pull I hit overboost near 1.45 bars and 7300 rpm (which came up on the dash as an over-rev warning). The car is lightning quick once it gets going but feels a little sluggish when it runs rich on that 3500-4500 rpm band. "

DavidV replied to the thread The new sound of Formula 1....FAIL.
" Dude, I didn't call you names, and I don't like it if you call me names.
And calling me a treeghugger and leftwing nutjob is offensive.
I will negrep you for that.

I'm not sure why you call yourself a "fan of the sport". You seem to know nothing about it at all.
Don't try to pull politics into this. It has nothing to do with US politics at all.
In fact, almost the opposite.
Nowhere in this was the USA involved at all. Your country does not play any role in this sport, you have no teams, and 99.5% of all USA citicens have 0 knowledge of this sport. You're no exception at all.

Sure you're entitled to your opinion, I was not denying you your opinion at all. "

Question is how much for the car? "

" Many factors for timing and can't relate with other platforms. These days more efficient engines with DI and chamber designs reduces timing needs... less timing for optimum peak pressure the better. "

JoshBoody replied to the thread STFT Banks 1 & 2 - What is normal ?.
" Another cause to consider is uneven WGs which will skew trims.

I think ST and LT are both in % (or could be volume)... can't be ms since pressure is also factored. ST is real time adjustment, LT is change to the base. GM ST is similar reference, but can use inj on time since pressure is constant. LT is an average of ST though. "

3. Steps will likely have to be taken to mitigate these changes, many of which are harmful
4. There is NOT a broad scientific consensus that human's are the overwhelming cause for these changes
5. There is NOT a broad scientific consensus that these changes will be disastrous and life altering in the next 50-100 years.
6. There is NOT a logical reason for the United States to bear the overwhelming cost burden of mitigating said changes, as is proposed in almost all UN models and approaches.

You are totally missing all the points I was talking about.
TBH you did come off that way, and I just really didn't want to hear anything about the environment being mentioned in the same sentence or even conversation with motorsports PERIOD; let alone F1. That's all. Honestly the biggest disappointment for me is that I've never been able to go to a F1 race yet in my life, and one reason I wanted to go was to experience the sounds, and now that I can't do that it fucking sucks...might as well watch from home now as it's only visual now and that's a better from home anyway.
