    It doesn't work like that, politics.

    I mean what kind of a dickhead forum owner for cars cares about the sponsors more than the actual cars the people are there to discuss in the first place? This is what infuriates me. How can Jason be this big of a $#@!? Like absolutely no credit where it is due? Because you are butthurt I decided to start my own forum rather than continue to sit on one that edits/censors everything?

    Grow up, respect the cars. It angers me people don't even see it.

    I mean just look at what happened at the show. ESS sponsors, Gintani can't even get mentioned over the loudspeaker. Am I supposed to start my own show now too?

    Just saw the video now. Sounds awesome. Try keep the static revving to a minimum as the pistons are turning with no resistance.

    Gintani feels I'm more important. LOL, yes, his car is being built as a track car only. Not sure if he doing the YSI.

    A lof of engine builders i have spoken too say its bad for a car especially FI to be revved continuously when idle. I would imagine the rpm increase is unatural vs when under load and it apparently creates unatural wear.

    Probably but a few revs likely won't kill anyone or anything. The did break it in significantly.

    I have heard this too - however, I have heard it for NA also - especially on the motorcycle side of things. I don't truly understand the engineering reasons/rationale behind it though. When you say unnatrual wear, what does that mean? Is it just because there is not as much "push" on the rod due to the lack of load? I would see these causing "less" wear - but now see what you mean if it's not the same type of wear - jsut would like to hear an explaination

    Cheers.

    You've definitely done a good job with this community without a doubt. I don't post too much on forums and often read threads. This is the only forum where there is an open and honest dialogue. It's a fresh and needed change. Hard work always pays off though and patience is a virtue.

    Without a doubt. I'm just speaking for myself on the matter but I don't expect praise of any kind. I just do my thing and if something good comes my way for it all the better. You can never expect someone else to appreciate your accomplishments. Sometimes you have to just know what you've done is killer and no one else's opinion or thoughts matter. Click here to enlarge

    I look at car shows and forums like I do high school. At the time, the "cool kids" seemed really important. Now 8 years later I look back and think to myself (or say out loudly in front of said people at the 5 year reunion), "Wow, what a bunch of turds. These people were popular?"

    In all seriousness, this is absolutely sick. I can't wait to see if you run it in the standing mile. You are truly taking BMW into uncharted territory.

    No I wasn't. I didn't feel like spending my day in Pasadena. Went hiking instead and had a great time.

    I like Pasadena but the traffic is a nightmare.

    Glad you had a great day but I'm surprised you wouldn't want to be around the BMW's.

    I've been to Bimmerfest every year for the past 6 years. Every year seems to be more and more like the last one. Plus, I didn't have a car that I felt like showing off. Maybe if I had a car to bring I would have showed up for a few hours. I won't be at MFest either. You will never catch me in Vegas during memorial day weekend.

    I get what you mean. I have an idea to spice it up though if Tim would just check his e-mail.

    Wait.... you have a car?

    In all seriousness sounds pretty sweet. Hope to see you at some 1/2 mile runs when it cools down. Enjoy it in good health.
