This will be my last post at bimmerboost (Over/under at 5 neg reps?)
It might have something to do with:
the fact that Sticky threatened M3post with legal action after Drew copied a...
Was she on Jersey Shore?

Anyone know if Drew will be at Mfest racing this weekend?

You're probably right, but ultimately Gintani lost Drew -- ESS didn't steal him away. I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if Gintani hadn't taken 7 months to repair a failure caused by...

All planned out? So ESS snuck under Drew's hood a year ago and started scraping corroded aluminum into his meth lines, waited a few months for the engine to fail, and then prevented Gintani from...
The amount of torque is actually really close. The shape of the "curve" only looks better because you're comparing an X-axis 4500rpm wide with an X-axis 8000 rpm wide. Plot them on the same graph...

I know he made 100s of passes with his Supra so he's no rookie. It probably was just shaking the bugs out of an entirely new setup combined with minor jitters (the last time he took that car to the...

Drew is the reason I came here and, from what it seems, will be the reason I leave
Sounds like they had a decent development day yesterday -- 60's in the 1.5x's despite 40* temps, but transmission problems and a blown turbo kept them from stringing together a record pass:

Only got this far:
Energy is conserved, power is not.
Flat shifting might be enough to push you into the 200s...

$#@!. Time to get a real job :(
Apparently the first timeslip came back with a 1.2x 60' -- I wouldn't give much credence to the timing equipment that day
M50/52 + S50/52: You're pretty much at the limit of your turbine,...
You're pretty much at the limit of your turbine, so the easiest solution is a bigger turbo. That said, there are still some things you can improve on the existing setup which wont cost you spool and...
5 people asked for slips with no response -- I don't think they're coming. FWIW, I've never been given a timeslip when issued a no cage warning.
Perhaps more relevant, how hard up do you need...

Crazy, right? But it'll never run that long -- a stage 4 at full kill would run out of gas in 6.5 minutes

Once again, Chris claimed 1200whp, not 1200bhp.
As for what is commonly referred to as "drivetrain loss", there are two main components:
1) mechanical inefficiencies (actual power lost to...
I'm glad Drew is pretty much whole and props to Gintani for standing behind their product, but I hope Gintani (and AA & HPF) use things like this to take a hard look at modernizing their meth...

Now that you mention it, I wonder if that is why there have been issues on long pulls (Scott's attempts at 200)

Ding Ding Ding... HPF is claiming the block IS the weakest link (and based on the fact that they've cracked a few blocks but haven't destroyed any rods/pistons/cranks -- they're probably right)
04-08-2011, 02:21 AM
Jesus Christ you guys are still going on about this?
Yes there is. Chris flat out claims that his "Option 4" short block (which by definition includes: block, pistons, rods, crank, bearings,...

Perhaps HPF is using the same shortblock setup Taza made 1100+ with?
