    Tho, this is impossible since the roadblocks have been cleared and knowledge is publicly gained. You're suggesting someone pain themselves with the same mistakes with zero knowledge of this process, yet having to make the same upgrades or better upgrades. If the builds were began at the same time and upgraded to the same degree, then this could be a possible comparison.

Who cares if it is not THE FASTEST CAR EVER on the street/strip? There is always a bigger fish in the pond. Are we to deduce that there is only one car in the world that is not junk since there can only be one car that is the fastest? This is not a Honda Civic that he is building where all the R&D has been done and parts are already available, it is probably going to be the most powerful and fastest E92 M3 out there, and that's something! You want to beat him in a race? Buy a car and go through everything he has gone through so far and build a faster car. Any other comparison is stupid when you are pushing the limits of a platform like this. The god damn block is flexing! Wrap your head around that!
    I have built a lot of cars in my days, or maybe I should say paid to have built. A few M3s, lots of "firsts" too, first sc Lingentelter CTS-V(first gen) first ecu tuned M156, first SCed M156 2.3L and 3.0L SCed M156, first built 722.9 trans that all the "experts" said could not be built and even some real big $#@! that I am not even allowed to talk about yet and all the SCed M156 stuff started well after Stickys build started. Please do not insult my intelligence by trying to convince me any $#@!ing build should take 38 months to complete...I suppose this would be Alex from Gintani?

    Hey Alex, I could have started a tuning company from scratch and done this build in less time that it has taken Gintani!

    Insult your intelligence?... I think you are taking this a little bit too seriously. Let me ask you this simple question: why do you care so much about what he does with his car and how he does it? I'd understand your reactions if it was your car, but it's not.

    Well, all I can say is good for you. So is this the type of guy you are? Who can piss the farthest? I'll tell you what kind of guy I am: I'm an enthusiast who appreciates builds like this. I'd be saying the same thing if this was your build.

    Becuase I have been hearing about it for over 3 years now. I want to see the prize my friend, I want to know if it was worth the wait. Most of all he has been trying to race me for over two years, I want to line up with "the fastest E92 M3 in the world". I have been around the block a time or two, flexing block or not this build should not take 38 months. Some simple up front engineering would have told you the block was going to flex before you got 2.5 years into the project, or I would at least hope so. Tthis build and Gintani has become the lauging stock at race track events, meets and forums across the country. Just get $#@! done and shut me and everyone else up already.

    My builds get done because when I see the tuner slacking I pull the $#@!ing car out and find a company compitant enough to complete the build, ask around, I have done it on more than one occasion.

    Honestly, and I'm not trying to be a dick....but if it were me and it has taken longer than it took North Korea to build a nuclear bomb, I'd be pretty pissed if it weren't the fastest car ever.

    I'm sure he wants to see the prize too, I know I would. I'm sure he will let you know when it's done and when he is ready to race you, but $#@!ing and complaining in his thread is not going to make things happen faster. You should know that by now.

    That almost sounds like a concession speech...so are we talking days, weeks or months at this point?....throw us a bone man. Is the car still going to be running this week?

    It will be done when it will be done. Even I know that and I'm not as intelligent as you are.

    Thanks for reaffirming my hunch, you guys are no closer this week than you were a week ago or a week before that.....EVEN I AM INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES? Too bad Joseph can not do the same.

    Duh, no $#@!. Lame response. If you are gonna come in here and discuss the build, at least be prepared to be more forthright with your answers.

    I would be shocked if Gintani let a random person influence their desire to finish Sticky's build. However, a swift kick in the ass and the awareness that the masses are carefully scrutinizing Gintani's project might light a fire under their ass.

    If nothing else, it will at least give you an opportunity to find out more information as to why the build is being delayed.
    Seriously, call them if you want. The info is posted what's the big deal?

    You are misunderstanding a trans build with a car build.

    Let's do both. I mean so you know the C63 BS can't win in a straight line who cares? Comparison for fun for data and for people to see.

    Nobody gets it. It's interesting, really, from an enthusiast standpoint. I don't care about the time. I don't $#@!ing care.

    You have others trying to match. They can't, and haven't, and aren't running. It's not just me.

    Who cares what you have paid to get built? Different platforms.

    Look man, let the ego go.

    Weistec supercharger the first M156, not you. Glad you got to them but if they didn't have people pushing it would be hard. I'm the guy pushing Gintani's DCT. Not fast enough for you? Sorry, f'ing sorry. Oh no, oh darn.

    Alex could be faster. Alex could respond better. Alex is how Alex is but that doesn't mean a car can't get done. Bro, my E92 was way bananas on stock internals. Your C63 would have trouble, ok? Seriously, big trouble. You know that as you don't even want to race it any longer. Your CLK will have trouble too now. No, it simply will. Not because there is anything wrong with it, but you aren't even analyzing this from a technical standpoint.

    Seriously, no bid deal. I'll come out to Chicago. It doesn't matter. Whatever, have fun, chill out, relax.
