    Not saying anyone is lying here but back in the day where I visited races theres lots of shady stuff going on. Someone can say they are running a 50 shot but are running a 150-200 shot.

    I am a bit skeptical as the car jumped from 7.9 to 6.9... don't really understand it.
    It does seem odd.


    Now on E90post, all of sudden his tranny is acting up and he can only do 60-100mph. How convenient after he just did a 6.9.

    Three runs in a row, three trans malfunctions in a row. I think the trans just is not designed to handle this kind of power. I can still run traps in the 120's without spray and the trans seems okay, but not at power levels to achieve 130mph traps. DCT would be excellent, but how much torque do they handle. Aside from the HP numbers, does anyone have an idea of what my torque numbers might be? Thats probably what the trans is having difficulty with.

    A ~600whp SL600 wants to run me tonight, I will try, but maybe all I can do is a 60-100mph run?
    But Drew may possibly run him also

    Something is up man...

    He never posted that 7.9 graph either like he said he was going to.

    I don't think there is anything up Sticky. I've known Warren since HS and he is a good guy.

    520rwhp with GOBS of torque is reasonable for his car, and GOBS of torque behind it, some weight reduction. This time is attainable, especially since he posted some very nice times before.

    I don't have the same feelings you do.

    I think a run with Drew for example would settle a few things. If he really is running 6.9 he should crush him... I've never seen a car with 520 wheel make it, no matter how much torque. HP is a function of torque anyway.

    His take on running Drew.

    Trans shifts into 4th around 100, slips, shifts back to 3rd gear redlining the engine, throwing the trans light on, and CEL. Pretty disconcerting actually.

    Maybe the double shifting at Sacramento were the initial signs of something wrong??

    Besides, its pretty senseless making too much out of a roll on race. Just look at Drew's videos. Sometimes he is running a faster car, they walk away from him. Next races he is pretty even, or may be ahead because of the jump. Anything can happen when cars are within a few mph in trap speed. You can't come close to picking out the differences that a Vbox can detect.

    Think of two cars making 10 runs at the drag strips. One car has the fastest drag strip run, and the fastest average of runs. Then the two cars run together and the fastest car has its slowest run of the day, and the slower car its fastest run of the day. Since its the only run people see of them running together, they automatically think the slower car is faster. When I go to the track, I don't even care if I leave first and finish first, I just want to be fastest, since I am more or less interested in my car's performance..not in a drag racing trophy.

    Trying to work around a crippled trans and race is pretty senseless. At least we are finding the limits of the steptronic trans, and thats useful information for this forum.

    We have already seen how the acceleration numbers compare, and video. The numbers speak for themselves.
    He has no problem running a SL600, but running Drew he sees no need in doing that. Seriously?

    This is exactly the type of stuff that makes Warren seem so shady.

    As I said, something is up here. How convenient that he now has an excuse and is refusing to run Drew, this whole thing stinks.

    The numbers speak for themselves? No they don't, that is why you need to run to put it in context.

    What's shady about a 132mph slip aside from the fact that it came from Sac? Click here to enlarge

    A 132 trap at Sac will equal a 126~128mph trap at Famosa, which is still quite impressive.

    He is definitely running good power to make a 6.9 60-130 time, he is probably running a 100shot easy. A dry shot is quite dangerous though, without race gas 100% disaster there.

    It's a .28 jet. Another vendor claims he gained 75rw on a .31 jet @ 1000psi so could be +60rw from the .28.

    Honestly, this has to be it. He has to be making more power than he is saying.

    It's too bad he didn't wait another week for our nitrous integration to get done. May have saved his transmission a lot of wear and tear. Click here to enlarge

    That is going to be really nice!

    However, it probably wouldn't have saved his transmission as the torque is what killed it. My suspicion, the torque from much more power than he is letting on.

    Enough with the conspiracy theories on this one! Who cares about the power, he pulled an amazing time!

    Terry, nitrous integration should be an amazing feature!

    Too bad he could only get is car to run one night, to get that 6.9.

    Well if he ever gets it running again with that setup, he will have no excuses not to run Drew.

    What is the next fastest 60-130 time for the N54? (non-Hotrod time)

    Come on man, your bashing the guy for pushing the envelope. He is the first to do this, things will break and go wrong, but at least he is doing it first for others to learn from Click here to enlarge

    Wish he could get his car working again. Many would like to see him run a SC M3 like drew's. It's a shame really, his car couldn't handle the juice. I don't believe he was the first to run nos on a N54.

    Still would like to know the next fastest (non-hotrod) N54 60-130 time.

    I think he is questioning it.

    I think there definitely is more at work than being let on, but whatever, it is the fastest E9X time thus far.

    The work definitely is appreciated and things go wrong when you try to push the envelope.

    I could imagine having a family car that is capable of a 6.9 sec 60-130mph.
