1st 911 should be 991 right? Just a typo?

You said the 911 model should be faster so I asked how fast is it's record was on that track.
991 implies the generation of 911 we're discussing. Like E46, E36, etc. "

Well now, we know its not just the M3 software they can beat, but also the 335is. Assuming stock TCU software is retained. Did dodson say for real they were done and ready and what time frame? I know the horse is beaten dead on this. "

This device also says it can read and write files but does that mean it gets around the need to have properly signed BINs? Probably not but figured I'd throw it in there.

There are some other tools like this as well but same question re the BINs: http://www.autodiagnosticobd.com/new...rvice-752.html
It says that it can modify the data area which I'm guessing is where the calibration data is stored. Also says it can calculate the checksum.

It seems like an excellent solution! Someone should take the plunge and buy this. They can offer a bench flashing service for these computers. "

I selected GS19 and was able to get into some menus. The first ones were informational and some others clearly showed status as well as the ability to set values. Somewhere I thought we could set shift values - maybe I dreamt that.
I'll try to upload some screen shots.

MFactory replied to the thread Feeler Thread - Racing Flywheels, Clutch Kits, Racing Axles and Suspension Arms.
" Okay guys, here's the latest so far, and what we need:

Clutch - We decided on our Twin Plate design which, of course, includes our flywheel also. MSRP will be very affordable. We have the 335i 06-08 fitment almost done, so are looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested

Flywheel - Our 1pc Chromoly Flywheel weighs 9kg, and can be used with the oem clutch (or any other oem fitment clutch). MSRP will make it very difficult for you to want to buy any other brand flywheel We have the 335i 06-08 fitment almost done, so are looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested

Suspension Arms - We are working on these just now, and should have something within the next few weeks. Again, looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested

Axles - We've done our preliminary research on these, and all we need now is to find some OEM Axles so that we can take our measurements. If anyone has a spare set of axles that they could loan us (and, if you currently drive a 500lbft+ car), please PM me. The donor will get a set of our new axles at no charge for testing (hence the torque requirement) "

We have not tried any XI fitments so I can not guarantee fitment.

That's a work in progress Or take your m3 away so you can get back to work on the 435.

Extremely jealous how much power you have pulled from the M in a months time. "
