    • 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.

        Lol,win lose or draw it will be fun! Back in 2000 when I bought my new '00 Busa my Kawi buddy bought a new 12R,I did a 1397cc so he went and did a Muzzy 1270cc
        He put down a solid 203rwhp and we had alot of fun w 'em. He sold the 12R&bought a 10R when they came out in '04..we should meet up over in Yonkers one thurs nite,w your car you will basically have your choice to run GTR's,AMG's,BMW's,997's,Supra's,Evo's,Z06's etc that would love to have a go against you

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)
        i believe you. thats about what im running at right now. Just so you know where im coming from and so defensive though is the data from local cars.. i dont compare to cars across the country and all, because there are too many variables, even within the N54 community.

        12.80 @ 111.85 MPH 60' 2.12 (Blaizon) E92 335i 6 speed, JB3 2.0 map 7, dci & 100 oct

        compared to me fully bolted an blown turbo's (yes this was on stock blow turbo's pouring oil and smoke everywhwre that led to the RB's..)

        12.09 @ 115.32 MPH 60' 1.75 (LostMarine) E92 335 Auto, JB3, bolt-on's, 100 oct, DR's

        so right there, me vs him is an ass whoopin.. and then.. what ive done currently..

        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.

        Not happened to my car. LM just know suspension is mush and when I get on it. The squats hard something stiffer would be awesome. Some coilovers and I'm fine plus I'm rubbing a bit form
        mushy suspension and stupid spacers in rear. All that would be taking care of asap.

        I've actually run a few 12.6's ~112-113 not that it matters on jb3 map7 and 100oct. Top mph was 114, but I wasn't ever able to duplicate that again. Totally OT I think the car is a solid 113mph car with jb4 map 2 and good gas. I won't be able to find out cause, DPS, IC, Meth & catback are otw.

        Already have. He suggestted are pretty hardcore setup. Little outta my price range. When I have cash in hand I'll be giving him a call. I really wish a single turbo option for n54 guys. I know LM would
        get that. His car is so nice he need some single turbo action.

        Here is the video of the 370ZTT vs my CLK550 i was in auto but that wouldn't change the fact that his car is just 2 fast for me, wish the camera guy got a little longer footage.

        Yep, longer footage would have been great but it pulled pretty quickly so not necessary to show the difference.

        You guys need to go out later or find an area with less traffic...

        My friend with stock 335i MT said he will stay with me so i ran him from 30mph and i just pulled on him how the 370TT pulled on me.
        Then he asked to run on his terms 45mph i stay in 2nd 5000rpm my redline is 6200.
        here is the video.
        from inside his car

        no, the 370 pulled harder on you than you did on that 335. and are you sure he was stock?

        if you didnt read we ran 30mph but i never got the video because guy in my car didn't record it.
        To be on fair grounds i ran him @ 45 mph in 2nd gear where i am out of my peak TQ versus running in 3rd where i have my peak TQ hance the delay when car shifter in to 3rd.
        Capish ?

        basically for me to run @ 45mph i have to be in 3rd gear thats when i just leave him, he asked for me to stay in 2nd where i am 1000rpm from my reline plus automatic shift causing the small delay letting him hang there for a second.

        First of all I had a 200+ passenger in my car, I wasn't full throttling because I would have broke the tires loose and we were going up a hill.

        And by the time I shut it down I had like 8 to 10 cars on him. The dude stopped the recording before we shut it down
