  1. Pretty nice looking display

    Pretty nice looking display
  2. You are correct, the complimentary engine...

    You are correct, the complimentary engine changes would be a given with probability of a different block, etc. Exact same engine philosophy as the S55 just on a different scale. But I figured...
  3. I was saying the M4 did well considering it's...

    I was saying the M4 did well considering it's displacement disadvantage. And if it's motor was closer in size (3.8L), still running the same boost psi and red line, it would have taken This M3 in...
  4. Why do you keep stating the obvious. I have said...

    Why do you keep stating the obvious. I have said in numerous times now, without increasing the RPM, Static Compression, or Boost Pressure, a bigger displacement engine would make significantly more...
  5. Its for the same reasoning. I can't tell if you...

    Its for the same reasoning. I can't tell if you have reading comprehension problem, or just don't understand simple simple concepts. Sorry about your difficulties.
  6. Wow, I didn't think I would have to go into the...

    Wow, I didn't think I would have to go into the details of reality to make you understand such a simple concept. I said, same boost, and same redline, a higher displacement (3.8 vs 3.0L) should be...
  7. With equal redline, and boost, a...

    With equal redline, and boost, a proportionately equipped engine based on the S55 (yes, bigger Pistons, injectors, turbos, valves, etc that would be included in a regular factory displacement...
  8. You are not worth arguing with, because you...

    You are not worth arguing with, because you probably don't know much about engines.

    But yes Sticky, I was hoping I didn't have to explain every aspect or condition of the displacement ...
  9. Wow, that's pretty amazing!

    Wow, that's pretty amazing!
  10. You seem to be the one that needs a grasp on...

    You seem to be the one that needs a grasp on reality. I am not about to go into the details about engine design etc. I'm willing to bet I know more about engine design than you. It's so simple what...
  11. I absolutely agree with you. The M4 was the more...

    I absolutely agree with you. The M4 was the more impressive performing vehicle in this race given its significantly smaller displacement. Others are diehard S65 groupies, reveling when they see...
  12. I don't even need to go into needless details. ...

    I don't even need to go into needless details. If you knew anything about engine dynamics you should know the influence of increased displacement in FI engines. Displacement is one of the most...
  13. How about this to clarify for you. Let's just say...

    How about this to clarify for you. Let's just say we made the S65 in that M3 a three liter without changing anything else. Then made
    the S55 a four liter. Same boost pressures as used in this race...
  14. Absolutely not my way of thinking. Just there...

    Absolutely not my way of thinking. Just there are plenty of six cylinder engines in the 3.8l range. From imports to domestics.
    Maybe I should have listed them all? That displacement can yield some...
  15. I think around 3.8 liters is fine. Close to the...

    I think around 3.8 liters is fine. Close to the GTRs and some of the GT3s.
  16. Your math is wrong. If it were 3.8 liters, had...

    Your math is wrong. If it were 3.8 liters, had no two extra cylinders, and revved no higher, the M4 would stilll would have beat this FI S65 M3. Do you actually doubt it?
  17. Imagine if the M4 had the extra liter of...

    Imagine if the M4 had the extra liter of displacement, worth at least 125whp more. It would be no contest.
  18. So the M6 was quicker than the Gallardo and the...

    So the M6 was quicker than the Gallardo and the CLS?
    The Lambo and CLS ran the qtr in the 12s?
  19. Maybe we can see some videos of how the Vette...

    Maybe we can see some videos of how the Vette does against at S65 M3?
  20. Drivetrain electrification is unbeatable. This is...

    Drivetrain electrification is unbeatable. This is going to be a common theme with supercars in the future. First of all, the i3 has been rated at an incredible 138MPGe city economy, and 111MPGe Hwy....
  21. The Volt has suffered decreasing sales lately....

    The Volt has suffered decreasing sales lately. Only about 1500 units a month. In fact, the LEAF has kicked its but for about 5 months straight, averaging over 2000 units a month.

    This is probably how the i3 should have looked instead.

    I would imagine he is trapping at least 10mph faster than you in the qtr mile....so the speed differential makes sense.
  25. California: I know that owner of the GTR, he owns a...

    I know that owner of the GTR, he owns a pharmaceutical company. His car runs a 9 second qtr mile at 149mph, 4.5 second 60-130. He was doing 191mph at yesterday's runway event. Not bad for his daily...
