Regardless Terry, you are welcome as always to come see for yourself at the roll on event I told you about. Hopefully you can up the boost on the M5 or 135i so we can finally have a run as well.
Honestly I've not yet read this thread. Just browsed a couple posts. You ran a best of 174mph starting before the cones as did Drew, so it seems the cars are fairly evenly matched when both are running? I generally only race from the cones at a 50 roll so my traps are a bit slower. But I think I'm in the conversation.

Either way always down for more races. What's why we build these cars! "

Any evolve kit is beast...i started looking into them after I saw your sig. If I can get my 2.0L to beat out your 4.0L Supercharged V8...it will be the most epic accomplishment ever for me. As of right now I can leave you from a 60mph roll and then you run me down and go by me easy anything north of 115mph.....I cant handle that big V8 in the upper speeds...hoping a few more modifications will even out the playing ...or at least prevent you from catching me all that longer until hopefully the 1/2mile mark.....we will see tho...I gotta get the stuff working first and thats a whole other story.

" Its the best and makes tuning sooo much faster.

Make table changes in ATR on the fly while tuning.

Example from Cobb website for an STI:

REAL TIME TUNING Make value changes to real time tuning tables instantly and immediately see the results without needing to wait for a typical ECU flash. "

I wouldn't ban you. I'd limit your account if anything but I wouldn't ban you outright like that even if you were trying to blatantly sell parts I don't do that. "

" Of course he won't. They won't show up. They won't run. They will just sit there and type instead about their glorious ESS victory by default.

When there is real competition we already know what they do. They avoid it. "

Same basic motor with different turbos. Not too surprising. "

I imagine most of the cars that participate in these types of events have some sort of forced induction, but if not, I think there will be a lot of normally aspirated cars with broken hearts due to the altitude (6,000ft with DAs in June probably in the 9,000ft range)

Oh wow, that altitude is killer. If I was NA I wouldn't even go. "

You do make a good point. That is a huge achievement. I'm scared to ask what it costs though... "
