    Wrong. The blue car had wheels and a couple tools...less than 100 lbs. in the trunk.

    In the first vid, I started in 3rd gear at 40 mph and the blue M3 started in 2nd gear. I also hit the rev limiter as I was pulling just before the finish line.

    Did you guys not see the second race? We both started in 2nd gear and I put 5 cars on it.

    The blue M3 dyno'd at 580 wheel on 91 octane and 603 wheel with some MS 109.

    Figures that LM would try to distort the record.

    The two races were combined by me into one video. LM must have edited out the second race.

    Someone who was actually at the event alerted me to this thread and the complete BS that was being spewed by LM.

    Well then that is definitely unfair if true. Please post your second race.

    What happened to the VF car in the second race? Looks like he missed a gear and then it was just over.

    i heard that the driver in the blue car missed a gear during this run as well. not saying it was fact as i wasnt there but i heard from a buddy who was there. i assume this is Joes car correct? if not than this comment is pointless lol another question though (little off topic) what rpm is a 6 speed car at when driving 40mph and what rpm is a dct car at when driving at 40mph

    DCT is geared shorter in second, will be at higher rpm.

    Yes Joe's car but that is not true. I asked Joe right after the race. He said that the 2-3 shift was clean. No slow shift...no wheel spin.

    As you guys can see we were fairly even until he had to shift. Shows that both cars are making about the same HP/weight. Joe has a little more HP, but is carrying a little more weight as well.

    DCT here is key. Even on MDM, the DCT shift is so much faster that it makes a significant difference.

    I have registered for the next Airstrip Event "No Fly Zone" March 2nd in Bakersfield (Sticky aren't you the Forum sponsor)? Hopefully everyone will be able to make it and we can have a great time and get some good runs in. Then LM can sit behind his computer and edit away on the vids and make his own reality.

    Come on man, you aren't blowing another SC'd car away as the first race shows when accelerating at speed.

    Yep, acceleration performance looks similar until the shift where everything fell apart.

    Speaking from personal experience it isn't THAT big. You aren't putting bus lengths on another SC car with a similar kit.

    wheels and tools is over 100lbs, closer to 200, if not more..

    In the first vid, I started in 3rd gear at 40 mph and the blue M3 started in 2nd gear. I also hit the rev limiter as I was pulling just before the finish line.

    no, i chopped it as per your guidelines of not posting videos where one car has a bad start or mis-shift.. remember..

    The blue M3 dyno'd at 580 wheel on 91 octane and 603 wheel with some MS 109.


    Figures that LM would try to distort the record.
    huh? how, read above. i took your own postings and aded them in here, and abided by your guidelines.. you obviously have no qualms with posting this video, as i borrowed it from you. but i thought it was more practical to live by your own belief and not show bad runs.. i mean.. thats what you said about shift sector right..
    odd..

    oddly, you have 1 day runs, where videos are collected, and distributed as vendors see fit, and now -IM- the one sitting back? funny.. lets talk about reality:

    well, isnt it now a 625 kit by accident?

So basically for all of those runs I started behind you guys in third gear at around 50 mph....which on the S65 platform is waaay low in the powerband. All you guys put 5+ cars on me on those runs. I didn't post other runs where the same thing happened to my competitors
    well how about that.. who makes up their own reality?

    just two wheels...not four...and a couple pounds of tools. The second race was CLEAN as stated by Joe. No mis-shift and no spin from what HE said.

    Why don't you ask me or Joe before you chop up my vid and post nothing but speculation.

    The reality is I ordered and paid for a VT2 600 kit since the 625 kit was rated at 93 octane. But guess what...ESS changed the 625 kit (right around the point where I ordered my kit) to accept 91 octane and SENT me a 625 kit but didn't tell me. Go ask Roman. Go ask Malek at MRF Engineering who installed the kit. We found out as I was measuring the pulley to determine the size...and Roman told me it was already the pulley for the 625 kit.

    Regarding the runs against Eric and Sergey, so what? I spun badly. We had rematch runs with no wheel spin which were posted. I spun badly against Terry and unfortunately he didn't attend Day 2 so we didn't rematch. All of this was posted. Nothing going on here but your wild imagination.

    The only "reality" here is you took a vid of mine and cut out the part that you didn't like. And then on the first vid you didn't bother to introduce the facts which were that I started in 3rd gear and the blue M3 started in 2nd gear on a 40 mph roll on. Regarding the second vid which you are now saying you edited out because it wasn't "clean"...complete BS. The FACT is there was no mis-shift and no spin. It was a CLEAN run as reported by Joe himself. Regardless, my car will be that the March 2nd Airstrip Event and I'll post the vids and then you can edit away.

    You are a true "Internet" warrior "bra". Not the North Shore crew that typically uses the term "bra" with me.

    oh, im sorry, did i not state what i was doing when i posted it? did i not follow your logic? It was a clean run? i fail to see how a bad shift is a clean run, but hey, apparently you and I are in a different "reality"..

    Just raising the rev limit and reducing unsprung weight for the March Airstrip event. Doing suspension and BBK as well for track season. This thing is awesome at the track already. Going in a straight line is comparatively so boring.

    That's kind of an odd communication breakdown isn't it? I mean I wouldn't complain about getting something better but I mean getting sent what you didn't buy or at least not being told changes were made is a little concerning.

    GermanBoost is the forum sponsor for the event, see you there.

    There is no ESS VT2 600 kit according to their website now. After the 585 kit it's the 625 kit. I ordered through a vendor right at the point ESS was doing a change to their kits. According to Roman it's slightly tweaked from the older 600 kit to still accept 91 octane. Probably minimal power difference. At the time of purchase I wasn't the one communicating with Roman - the vendor was.
