    Seems we have another pathetic troll, I'll contact Gintani to see what's up. Fanboys doing idiotic youtube mudslinging need to get lives, it's ok for people to choose a different kit.

    I swear the $#@! they have to put up with...

    I heard it had nothing to do with the motor, not sure though. I wasn't there. Heard about this though, crazy they got it on video.

    This is a natural part of testing. $#@! goes wrong, they learn from it & address the issue. Be interesting to see what actually went wrong & if the s/c actually had anything to do with it.


    Gintani just gets unnecessary amounts of $#@! because they test where everyone should -- In plain, public sight on a track.

    Just look at the video description, calling people douches because they are testing on the track.

    If people knew half the $#@! the other guys cover up...

    Anyway waiting on Gintani's official statement but here is what really happened, surprised he didn't post this here:

    I throw track events, many of them. I have seen this M5 run in 4 of them. Big Willow (x2) Buttonwillow (x2). Always runs fine.

    Gintani was tracking the car, it was running fine. He was at least 10 minutes into the session, His power steering line burst which exploded all over the header. If your at the track and it is 90 degrees outside and your going FULL throttle for how ever long it is... What happens when a flammable liquid hits a cherry hot header?

    It's simple, it's not brain surgery. This could have happen to any car. Adding a supercharger doesn't make a car catch on fire. It has nothing to do with the supercharger system, there is no meth, no flammable liquids in the supercharger/manifold, anything.

    It did not "burn" to the ground like the guy in the Youtube video claims. Under the car was burnt, thats it. I will be more then happy to speak to this person because I'm curious to know who would even make these type of remarks at my own event.

    At the end of the day, it's just a car. I'm happy that Alex and Danny walked out of the car harmless. Alex went home to his family, Danny went home to his child and wife.

    Some people on this forum disgust me.

    Enjoy the gossiping.

    Damn, good $#@! for posting that Sticky. Josh makes a great point that nobody probably even looked at it that way.

    Of course not, all these retards are in a hurry to hate because it's a kit from Gintani. I don't even get why they have such a personal vendetta.

    Gintani should behave exactly like the competition and pay people off, force people to sign NDA's, and do all testing when nobody else is around. Instead they get static for going to the track, so fair.

    I think the most disappointing thing is that when someone is in a very dangerous, life threatening accident, and one's response is to call that individual a "douche"...Sad...

    Thankfully the driver and passenger of the car walked away from the mishap safe and sound. I think ultimately it's more important that they are able to go back home to friends and family and see another day.

    And the guy who posted the video claims he does no bashing, but calls the owner a douche...not to mention can't even spell correctly. First post here instead of lurking for months, and it's to show a competitors kit up in flames for reasons totally uninvolved from the supercharger, and then spread rumors that it might be related to the supercharger.

    Main thing is that the Gintani boys are ok and not harmed. People are $#@!s and will forget about the value of human life for their own agenda's, what a shame.

    Bets of luck to Gintani and for them testing their products before releasing them to the customer.
