    var script = document.createElement('script');
    script.src = 'https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js';
    script.type = 'text/javascript';
    document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(script);
    jQuery('#posts').find("b:contains('LostMarine')"). parents('.postbit').css('display', 'none');

    what do you mean? you mean constant weekly updates of an M3 running other cars? OH NOOOOOO!!! THE MIGHTY M3 LOST!? IMPOSSIBLE!
    so, if everyone posted like me, we would be watching video's right now.. buuuuuuuuuuuuut.. we are not.. sooooo.. most people prefer what i post so they choose to live with how i post..

    Thanks Thomas... I have to say our race was the best race I had all weekend. We should have ran a few times. It's really hard to find other cars that are truly that close. I think the events need a rolling dyno and mark the cars based on whp rather than estimated I knew I wouldn't have a chance with the upgraded turbo's on the N54's, but it was fun trying. But, you never know what's going to happen until you cross the line. Truly enjoyed meeting you and Austin. It's always nice to put a face to a name. Really looking forward to hang'n out at the next event. I'll have to drop a few lbs and pull my seats so I can get the advantage.. LOL I'll get you the video I have of our race as soon as I have time.

    I had a great time meeting some of you guys at Shift Sector! Wedge's car is no joke, by far the fastest stock turbo N54 that I have been able to race. Unfortunately, I missed my 4th gear shift so we ended up about dead even at the finish line (rematch damnit!), but every other stock turbo car I raced was bus lengths behind so I was extremely impressed.

    I also had the chance to race a couple single turbo cars, as well as Sickk335's RB car. Also very impressive cars, especially the RB car. Of those three, I felt that the RB car and the white single turbo coupe performed very similarly, with the single turbo sedan a bit slower. All three of the upgraded turbo cars were able to beat me, from my perspective it looked like 1-2 cars but it could be otherwise.

    From what I experienced in my races, Sickk335's RB car does pull harder than any stock turbo car (including Wedge's).

    I was in the B5 S4, and we also had a couple B8 S4's there. From what I saw, Wedge's car was one of only a couple N54's that beat the B8's, so again props where they are due.

    I'll post whatever footage we compiled on our Facebook/YouTube pages. Cheers to a great weekend!

    +1 Thanks... I'm going to try to get over to HPF and pull on the DJ this week just to see. I have delta's I can pull on their dyno also from a few years ago.

    I agree, video is video and should be shared regardless of outcome, ego's aside. It was a learning curve for me with the cams. I can say my day two videos were much better, but still room for better placement of direction to get a better view. I think next time I'll run with three cams to get front side and back. Even in the land of liberals, if you got to show up for this event, you're a winner in my book, even if you were looking at the back end of someone else's car. LOL

    i would assum 422 on a mustang is closer to 460-470 DJ, if the mustang is a low reading one and not one setup to read DJ like 3#'s

    im just stirring over the fact everyone is so uptight about not posting videos

    for BT N54's i said it before, if its nothing AMAZING then its really not a win, regardless of whos in front.

    for the M3's, I KNOW what a "100" hp advantage should look like

    its just pussy Cali Egos $#@! to not post a video because someone lost.. WTF do people think was gonna happen?

    Magically in the land of liberals, everyone is a winner?

    That's the attitude most of us have around here.. Click here to enlarge

    We work hard, mod our rides and put in work with em.. Win or loose we share it with the other guys that appreciate it. Nothing political or personal about it.Click here to enlarge

    It's all in good fun man! I'm all the way down in Texas so I couldn't make it out to the event.. I would have loved to check it out but my ride is down and milking my fun money like no other. It'll be up soon though and you can bet you'll see plenty of my stuff over in the race/kill section Click here to enlarge

    To be honest, after driving 14 hours to get home at 5:30am Monday, I haven't had time to even do much more than download the video. I need to trim and convert the video also, not to mention do my job. Don't worry, I'll get it out there soon.

    I think it's dust.. A couple guys mentioned it caused issues with traction.

    These vids just came up.. The right lane looks like it sucked.












    All I can say about this one is DAMN..

    The right lane was awful, wind was coming from the left and dropping all the dust into the right lane.

    Not so bummed I missed it then. Powerful rwd cars dealing with dust on the "track" when trying to accelerate full throttle? Doesn't sound like a good recipe.

    Your car likely wouldn't have had any issues. Drew was loosing traction but nothing that didn't stop him for pulling on just about everything he raced.

    I know that obviously but just wondering how with such a pretty conservative setup there weren't faster cars?

    Heh, whatever, we'll see if he has the balls to race me.

    there were faster cars, just not ones he ran. so the statement is still true, he could have slaughtered every other "700" crank hp car there.. but chose not to run others. curious why the M3 vs SIngle T N54 didnt go down..

    You know why M3 versus single didn't go down, singles weren't ready and would have lost. Shiv said no, simple as that.

    I raced two singles.

    EVERY ONE of my runs will be posted and from multiple angles. A videographer is splicing my vids together and someone else is going to post them. It's out of my hands...I'm leaving right now on a surf trip. I would have liked to post the vids earlier but I was far more concerned about how many surfboards to pack.

    Some of you guys are as impatient as my 3 year old.

    So did the built motor setup race?

    How did you do versus the singles?

    Why not just post your own videos?

    He put it down, efficiently and effectively.. the car was a beast and there was a huge variety of cars out there that it was surprising. I had 900whp.. but wasn't able to put down more than about 700rwhp on the top end, and maybe 600rwhp down low.. traction issues..

    Low torque, high revs, and high HP. It's actually pretty brutal in practice as you saw.

    Your turbo makes a lot more torque lower whereas the centri makes torque up high.
