    They are impressive, that's for sure. A lot of people that I hear about when I go down south to ride have FI setups, and supposedly they are nuts. They are pretty fast stock to be honest - when you...

    Ha! That would be awesome... It's a two-stroke, so it might get complicated (although, now you got me thinking <g>) - but that would be a fast quad. Query "fast banshee" in youtube - some guys on the...

    That thing is nutty quick, and the driver obviously has some skill/comfort with that car/course. I haven't seen many AWD P-Cars doing drifts in a controllable manner. Looks like they dialed in that...

    Yikes, that thing is sick. I have heard over and over again that they are amazing, and have seen a few at the Badlands - but never had a chance to see one move and/or drive one. I just recently...
  5. Yeah, I guess I would say read the article in the...

    Yeah, I guess I would say read the article in the 3 images - and that's with an older E46 M3. Timing is definitely pulled on 89 vs 93 or 93 vs 100... I am sure Evolve has done it also, and if we...
  6. I guess at that point, it's a matter of...

    I guess at that point, it's a matter of semantics, right? If you have an ECU that has a "max advance" number, and you aren't reaching it because of your octane level, you could say it's pulling...
  7. The key is octane, not the brand of fuel - as...

    The key is octane, not the brand of fuel - as said in the article. Point is, timing will advance on an engine (especially a performance oriented one) - and timing advance == more power.

    Check out...

    When I say "archived on my computer" - computer should be plural. I have 4 computers on my desk - and a bunch of mining machines, and probably - idk, 15 hard drives... I am making it sound worse than...
  9. Ha! Thanks, appreciate it. I have a bunch...

    Ha! Thanks, appreciate it.



    I have a bunch of stuff (mostly S54/S65/M3 related) archived on my computer from over the years; this was from the June 2002 issue of Evo, and images were grabbed...

    An S65 or S54 (and nearly any modern engine) will definitely make less power with 89 octane vs. when 93 (or above octane is used). Our fuels in the USA are garbage - we rate our octane "weirdly"....
  11. A better way of saying it - "in the real world",...

    A better way of saying it - "in the real world", peak power is when you achieve peak acceleration in a car - at a given vehicle speed. It is much more pertinent to the wheel (err real) world than...

    It really is. It's a damn good tuned engine, that's for sure.

    Amazing job, amazing car - and amazing power curve. Looks like it would be a fun car to drive everywhere. :)

    It is because of what you said - if the torque is being measured in nm instead of ft-lb. If you look at 5252ish, and see what the power is at (looks to be around 630ish?) - and then convert what...

    Dude, holy $#@!. I am shocked you still aren't getting this. The vehicle is INCREASING SPEED - here, just read this, there is a mathematical proof and all:...
  16. I think you are trying to say that if your car...

    I think you are trying to say that if your car had 1 gear, and you were accelerating in a 335i having a torque peak at 1800 RPM, that it's acceleration would be highest at this point. IF YOU DO NOT...

    You are wrong, and at this point I think you are trolling. Please read the following - if you haven't already. I can't even believe you are being this stubborn; have the audacity to "LOL" at things...
  18. You still aren't understanding. No, this is not...

    You still aren't understanding. No, this is not true. Think about it from the point of conservation of energy. When you are creating more power, it has to go somewhere. If the torque is lower in the...

    I have a degree in CS, and a minor in Physics - and completely understand the equation. I am not forgetting about anything - you cannot create power from gearing. You can create a mechanical...

    This is my last post here, and sorry to come across as "attacking" - as that is not my point, I just want to clarify - as this is one of the most misunderstood things in regard to...
  21. Yes, peak instantaneous acceleration in any given...

    Yes, peak instantaneous acceleration in any given gear occurs at peak engine torque BUT peak rear wheel torque at a given tire RPM occurs at peak power.
  22. It is all that matters. Torque is TIME...

    It is all that matters. Torque is TIME DIMENSIONLESS - it has NO MEANING in this regard. I can get a 50 foot pole - attach it to a bolt, stand on the end of it (I weigh around 200 lbs), and create...
  23. Exactly.

    Exactly.
  24. This is absolutely incorrect! I think we might be...

    This is absolutely incorrect! I think we might be saying two seperate things - but the only thing that matters is horsepower. Torque has no time or speed component. This is at the engine.

    Now, at...

    I think - just my .02 cents (and probably last 2 cents in the thread) - that this is also what separates a car meant for the track vs. a fast car for the street. One has a predictable power curve...
