    • Race Video: Tuned CLK550 vs. JB4 335

      Well, here we go, finally, we have a race involving BB member blkclk550. After 30+ pages of keybord warfare races took place. Now, we are told the 335 was on a 100 octane map. Blaizon, the 335 owner, said he would run a 93 octane map. The CLK does pretty well seemingly getting the jump each time and holding it. The cars seem pretty evenly matched with the JB4 having a slight top end advantage. The commentary by whomever filmed was humorous but we could do without it. Either way, look at the vids and decide for yourself.

        You won't really need to address the suspension for roll on's, right?

        Sounds like he should have been in 2nd as well.

        It is what it is, good runs.

        I didn't say turbo e92. Supercharger will get the job done. He said that's the route he'd go IF he got a
        e92m. I really want to see your car and other build motors make HP wise.

        @GG when I get the e36m it will be stock till the HPF car is done. Complete redo on outside. I do have the plans to have MaxPsi build a turbo monster tho. Trust me you'll know when because you'll probably have to help me find one for good price.

        I didn't know that, that tranny is mated perfectly to your powerband. No delay what so ever.

        Sticky it's more of a saftey thing. I could run anyone right now but I would feel 100percent safer with new coilover setup.

        better be ready to break out the check book. A trm stage 2 car makes 59x, and 5xxwtq on the stock motor with a .140mls for about 6,675.

        Ah, I see. I thought you were thinking of a setup for traction of the line or something.

        No worries, get it buttoned down, safety comes first.

        So your car sounds like it has the potential to be a real killer w the boost turned up...
        A lil off topic(this thread has gone many different ways lol)but would you be willing to run a bike,say a stock Hayabusa for fun? Or money if you want to make it interesting Click here to enlarge

        shortly, after seeing what he was talking about, i think its in his best interest to get that addressed, noone wants to see a 2.5 blowout a tire at thee speeds

        Heh, well, maybe Batta convinced her for you... awesome. Didn't even realize you were married.

        Anyway, I'm all for you making your car the best it can be but there still is no solid fuel system upgrade. I hope it comes... because you need it.

        The car is faster than you think. Honestly I know I'm only making like 450whp, but for 450whp the $#@! is fast as hell. I can't imagine how fast those 500whp 370s are. I'm still waiting to come across a c6 z06 and see what happens, but as of right now my 6psi is good enough for me. When I get beat by something worthy ill turn it up, but as of right now I'm more than happy with the before and after (na to tt)
