    I think, while a race off would be cool, it really wouldn't prove anything. Both RB and VTT offer very similar products. And the variables between two private party racers are just to much. Now, two shop cars racing, that's a different story.

    I think the quarter mile tells everything you could want to know, its the same distance exactly for both cars with repeatable length measuring from a dead stop with incremental time and speed points in between. The 60' can vary wildy, but between time from every other point to point and speed difference you can get a clear picture of how the car is working with its power band. It also shows how well the car get its weight moving. From a roll, you can skew too many things by gear selection to reduce lag and improve acceleration that you'd normally not be able to do in everyday driving. You don't always get to pick your perfect starting criteria. While DDing you'll find yourself in a multitude of different situations. Being from several different platform backgrounds, from NA 4, 6, 8 cylinder engines to turbo 4, 6, 8 engines, I have been in cars with huge lag and big top end pulls to fast hard hitting torque and less top end pull. From a roll, High rpm power is always going to win given everything else similar. The only thing g to contend with is getting into the power band. At the dragstrip, it requires a good balance of both to et and mph well. And from stoplight to stoplight low end torque will be difficult to beat because the terms of the race are generally short. Finding a good balance of all those things is really the best for the normal everyday car guy. For roll racers, its all big end pull and most drag racers spend countless dollars setting up the chassis to work with the power they make to get it moving from the tree. The only way currently to have the absolute best of both worlds....... Have two cars built for their respective roles. The alternative. Choose the setup that offers a good bit of both and be happy. Me personally, I enjoy the anticipation of a big snail spooling and the excitement that comes along with the acceleration that ensues. Moral of the story, Build what makes you happy! At the end of the day trying to impress others means your building the car in their image and will detract from your experience of enjoying what you like. Just my opinion. (Says the guy with too many cars in his garage... Lol) Chris

    How can you use 2 months to figure out where to send your stuff?? If you read my post you would also see that i live in Norway and its not very close to the US.. For me its been 8,5 months since payment... would you call that acceptable waiting time? and yes Tony is good to respond to mails and answers all your questions, but the issue is the lead time on his products. My plan was to get these in before summer so with 6 months i figured i had all the time in the world, but i guess not.

    Not sure what to make of all this but 100% agree that a roll on is a much better indicator of real world speed or "fastness" if u will than a drag race; i really dont know why people drag 335's anyway or any other bmw for that matter, thats not what they were made for and not what they do best.....and let freedom ring!

    What clutch would be the general consensus? It is only used a few times a year for the events and for drags. I've had it for 3 years and done approximately 2000km on the street. I want to be able to launch it at the drags. I seen the PTF twin plate has had some issues so I'm thinking of getting a spec 2+ or a spec 3 or PTF twin plate if it does perform ok. What do you think is the most suitable clutch?

    You guys are spoiled. It takes more than two months just to figure out where i should receiving my shit. Placed my order for Vargas turbos a long time ago but at the time i was completely clueless about how to gather all the stuff im buying from other suppliers and have to shipped to me on the other end of the world yet he was very patient answering my questions and accepted my demands. During this time i have been a pita with Tony and he treated me like a big brother. The guy's woman was giving birth to his son and he was answering to my noob questions regarding to fuel pumps and shit. I havent received most of his hardware yet and i dont know how they are but so far im a fully satisfied customer.

    We just ordered the Hexon RR550's, going on a 135i, I will be doing a full review on them once they arrive and are installed. Car is FBO, with meth and walbro e85 LPFP, should be able to push them as far as e60 and meth will allow. Chris

    We figured it out. We have to pull the motor back out to do some stuff, that is what the hold up has been. Extremely busy, and lack of motivation. We should have it back up and runnning soon
