You of all people know that a streetrun is one thing, and track is another. Cant fool the track, it doesnt lie or messup, unless miscalibrated. DA could be an issue, but less on an FI motor than N/A. I just wanted to show that not every run is gvroundbreaking. And to improve, something has to change, either added power, or dropped weight... takes time and testing to add power, but only 20 minutes to drop 150 lbs Click here to enlarge

    I have my own suspicions of the ESS M3's as most of you know. However, I like to give the benefit of the doubt and go with an "innocent until proven guilty" approach. Click here to enlarge

    Just so you all know, the GT-R in the vid DID have problems holding boost. He was also short shifiting 1000rpm's from redline. Not to mention the monstrous wing that killed his aero...

    The runs against the Z06 prove how slow Ricky's GT-R was that day.

    Yeah, they're pretty cool lol. I really like your setup though. Nothing like seeing the underdog shut down the big guns Click here to enlarge

    I don't know, his new setup has also lost to cars the previous one beat before. Then there were pulley swaps and new files and who knows what is going on now for it to try to "equal" the old one as that is the whole goal ESS has with this car.

    DCT is consistent, hard to blame roll on runs on driving.

    Take a look at this and try to explain the disparity: http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthrea...times-12.0-117

    8.5 psi, not 9.5.

    I ran 130+ with 7.5 psi...

    Hmm, I can see the passenger seat.. wouldn't the holes for the rear headrests be missing from the shot if the rears had been taken out, or am I mistaken? Either way any weight reduction should be posted so we know exactly how great the kit is performing. If drew has been known to un-disclose weight then I see where Sticky is coming from. But no way to prove it here in this video. I say good runs, this M looks quick.

    The headrest may have been removed to get a clearer view for the camera. I don't think the 3lbs in weight savings account for any performance increases...

    Of course, but the point is to be aware you are dealing with a person who has been known to remove significant weight from the car and not disclose it among other things. Even his new best buddy said so: http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthrea...782#post139782

    DCT M3's with boost are stronger than people think.
