    Saw this video the other day and loved it. The GT2 RS has been my dream car since it was first revealed. I've been waiting to see one run at a local 1/2 mile event but no luck yet.

    SCGT replied to a thread MHD vs Cobb in N54
    I made the switch from Cobb to MHD a week or so ago, and at this point am just using an OTS map. Few comparisons: 1: Boost by gear is fantastic. 2: If you're unfamiliar with an Android device, figuring out where logs are stored/etc is a pain in the ass. 20 min of googling and it is done but still irritating to me. I'm not a big phone or tablet guy, hell, I don't even like laptops, I prefer a couple of 30"+ monitors and a huge desk for computer work so this newfangled tablet thing will take some learning. That's my fault. 3: The OBDII cable for MHD can't be plugged in all the time. It'll drain your battery. The Cobb cable can be. 4: The OBDII cable doesn't charge your (my) tablet (nexus 7). The Cobb doesn't need to be charged. For those of us who like having their flashing solution also be a long-term gauge solution, this is a significant set back. I really liked having my wiring hidden, turn the Cobb on and instant gauges with no concern about battery drain/etc. Overall I'd say that at my stage of the game with power and features, MHD makes more sense but on light to medium mods, in my opinion Cobb is a much better all-in-one package. No worrying about airplane mode or battery life on the tablet, you can route your wiring smoothly and leave the damn thing plugged in and be done with it. No such luck with MHD. That said... boost by gear is awesome, something Cobb should have implemented a long time ago. The 3 point map scaling is also something they should have implemented. I personally don't care for any of the extra features just yet -I may someday though. I can't speak to much to the OTS maps, I will say the stage 2+ ACN91 map on my car was ridiculously too aggressive -huge timing pulled on ALL cylinders and I could feel it too -and this was just a 2nd gear log. No good. I would absolutely not do a 3rd gear log on this map. I haven't tested the "lighter" maps yet but I will. Obviously a pro-tune is where it's at, but so far I do not like the ACN91 V6.1 map at all. Cobb OTS was always fair to me, but it's been forever since I ran one. Cost for me was pretty much a wash, I paid a lot more for the Cobb back in the day but sold it for nearly the same amount as it cost to get a tablet and all the MHD licenses, and honestly I don't care about a couple hundred dollars difference. That's my 2c. MHD is clearly more powerful but Cobb is obviously a more complete all-in-one package. Honestly, I miss the Cobb. If MHD made it so that you could leave the OBDII cable plugged in all the time (bluetooth?) and/or it charged the tablet, it would just be better in all ways IMO but it's not like that (yet). Chris

    On paper this is a huge mismatch. The 997 GT2 RS model makes 612 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque from its twin turbocharged 3.6 liter flat-6 motor. Not to mention it weighs 150 pounds less than a standard GT2 coming in at 3085 pounds. The 991 generation 911 models do not have a GT2 variant. They do have the GT3 RS though which has 500 horsepower from its naturally aspirated and direct injected 4.0 liter flat-6 along with 338 lb-ft of torque. It's 22 pounds lighter than a 991 GT3 coming in at roughly 3150 pounds. The GT2 RS has a ton more power and torque and it weighs less. The only wildcard here is that the GT2 RS has a manual transmission and the GT3 RS has a PDK dual clutch transmission. They run a few times and the GT3 RS seems to get the jump each time. The GT2 RS owner looks like he can use some help shifting. The GT3 RS gets a nice lead only for the GT2 RS to come back and pull like crazy up top. With an even start this isn't even a race. The PDK certainly helps things down low. Regardless, the GT3 RS is not made for straight line racing. It's still fun to see the difference between the two.

    White on green? Yep, it's different. For some no doubt this will be too much. There is no denying the brushed green finish stands out and it certainly is a high quality finish. The 20 inch rims fit perfectly and this M4 looks aggressive and stands out. Forged Wheel Specs: SV10TS Deep Concave Monoblock -Gloss Brushed Striker Green -Weight Reduction Pocketing 2010 | 2011 Tire Specs: Michelin Pilot Super Sport Front: 255/30/20 Rear: 295/30/20 It just needs some tint to complete this work. This is different for sure but it stands out in a good way and shows the variety of finishes Strasse is capable of delivering.

    Finally! The 2017 AMG GT R will debut next month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed which goes from June 23 to June 26. Michelin accidentally leaked these details in a release that has since been taken down so we can not repost it. It likely means AMG got upset Michelin accidentally leaked the details. It also likely means Mercedes-AMG plans their own reveal prior to the event online and then the actual car will show up to the Festival of Speed. Either way, we will finally have the official details next month. So what is the exciting news that Michelin leaked? For one, when and where the AMG GT R will be shown in person and also that Mercedes-AMG bumped the output of the M178 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 to 570 horsepower from 503. Power in the 550+ range was expected and the GT R is expected to come with some weight loss as well. We can't wait to see the official details on what will be the highest performance Mercedes-AMG on the market.

    No VRSF charge pipe which is still in tact. I haven't firmly identified where the blow-off is yet, but I'm fairly certain it is the connection between the hot-side charge pipes and the intercooler. I've got MMP outlets, and the first set he ever did, so that pipe didn't fit my car well, and there was no bead at the end, so the smooth pipe was angled into the connector. It blew off once when we built it, but has been fine for the last 4,000 miles or so. Obviously the heat and added movement and stresses of the track were too much. I'm going to pull it apart, re-shape that pipe, and add a bead on the pipe in the coming week or 2.

    That sucks. Was it stock CP? Did it crack or you lost the clip?

    Ya whatever stock is, along with stock tires and suspension. Just the engine mods so far. I didn't have the chance to really push the brakes/suspension because of the charge pipe blowing off unfortunately.

    I believe Alex uses more of a Nascar bearing that requires some machining to fit. They seem to be the best bearing solution due to the type of bearing used. I'm sure he could chime in and explain it more.
