    LostMarine Vs SledgeHammer (M3 Vs Vette)

    First, Had a fun time, would do it again anytime.

    2 things I learned tonight
    First, check your equipment people, you will see in the first part its not great footage. This is because the front facing camera was set to "photo" and not "video", luckily, we still got something.

    Second, the newest GoPro2 is NICE! Very clear and better all-around









    As for the video, some "jumps" are legit performance oriented, some are due to not hearing any honks Click here to enlarge

    Great runs indeed bro... Nice to get some clean runs in. His car is friggin loud folks so sometimes I can't hear the horn and I beeped off every run LOL. We'll run again for sure bro once I get the new clutch in, i'm slipping but no excuses. His car is fast, sounds and looks wicked IMO. Thumbs up bro

    Hey LM, question. It seems you are using manual mode - is this the case? When playing on back roads, I notice that I hit the soft limiter in first and second too msny times - and although the glorious sound makes it I possible for me to tell, just wondering if you ever allowed the computer to shift for you. It definitely makes a difference IMO for runs like ths as long as you start in the right gear.

    On another note - awesome run, awesome cars.

    I was in S6, Euro MDM on. I dont recall ever hearing of a soft limiter, but i was starting in 2nd, and i did tap the limiter a few times in the early runs. the last 3 runs were the cleanest of them all... and he still pulled Click here to enlarge I need boost so bad..

    The soft limiter is the limiter you hit. instead of bouncing, It just kinda chills at redline without making power.

    Honestly dude, I am shocked it was that close. I would be proud Click here to enlarge

    No but but the DCT is efficient from what I heard and saw with the car. It's fast and smooth and vs a like car with a 6spd certainly more consistent. I'm impressed with the DCT after that run' still a manual trans fan but that DCT should not be discounted at all
