    I think I have written about this a couple of times on here....okay once again.... the vbox is GPS based and gives you the "exact" speed at 1,320'.... the 1/4 mile drag strips use timing lights 66'...

    Actually, most car magazines use the same/very similar equipment. The difference is likely due to the weather and the weather correction that most magazines do to the acceleration data. The OP...

    I am not sure what km/h to mph conversion being used but the timeslip shows 199.63kph = 124.04mph and the video says 201km/h which even it was 201.99kph would only equal 125.51mph.

    S63/S63TU: Have you done any 60-130mph or drag strip runs?

    Have you done any 60-130mph or drag strip runs?
  7. S63/S63TU: If you look at the left (hp) and right (torque)...

    If you look at the left (hp) and right (torque) scales are set to different amounts. The WinPEP (Dynojet) software can be set the scales equal and then it would intersect at 5,252 RPM.
  8. N63/N63TU: Do you have the same exact mods as the other...

    Do you have the same exact mods as the other Dinan tuned cars? If you have a less restrictive exhaust, it might lower the boost reading but increase overall flow (i.e. more power).

    Exaggerate much? I have done many runs on this same road and run at MIR which is virtually flat (1/2 a foot over the quarter mile) and I have NEVER seen anything over 0.5s difference ...let alone a...

    I posted this on some other sites and figured I would also share here as well:

    The temps cooled off here in the DC Metro area over the weekend and I took the M5 out early Saturday morning on the...

    I don't know...it looks like my F10 M5 would be the under-dog in this match-up.

    Nice! Although it is times like these that I wish I kept my FBO E85 tuned GT-R...that would bring you a whole new definition of pain :lol:

    Thanks guys!

    I am scheduled to do a rental at MIR in November which should be negative DA conditions. Hopefully they do some good track prep and I can get the 60' time down. I might also lower the...

    The times from the C&D comparison test for the M5 were nearly the same: 0-60: 3.7s, 0-100: 8.1s, 0-130: 13.1s, 1/4m: 11.9 @ 123...

    You cannot compare car magazine times/traps to a drag strip timeslip without first looking at how the data is collected and reported. You will notice...

    You really can't compare the output if the runs are done on different types of dynos. The Mustang dyno above appears to read a little lower than say a Dynojet dyno. So on that particular Mustang dyno...
