" I'm excited for this car. 400hp with AWD and 3100lbs low 12s stock! Maybe? Plus it has a True AWD system! Get that and put a fight rice bumper sticker on it and just destroy mostly everything out there!

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.

I don't really know, I'm guessing its just this specific car that is like that..
The fuel allows for tons of advance, but different cars want to see timing at different degrees. Why I have no idea, but these seem to be particularly finicky motors. My E88 wants to see advance and 14 degrees on the dyno wasn't even close to MBT, on the other hand it wasn't happy with a lot of boost midrange. Obviously a single turbo changes the boost end of the equation, but the fundamentals are the same.

Get it on a dyno and see where you stop making power, back off a bit, and that's that. Don't think i've ever seen an N54 push more than 15-16 degrees of advance, regardless of octane. E85 is very, very tough to knock on, which is nice. "
