  1. N63/N63TU: X5 at Famoso

    Ran the X5 50i at Famoso last night. Best pass was 12.940@107.27, 1.953 60ft. This was with a tune on the mid setting and 5 gals of 109 unleaded added to 1/2 tank of 91 pump gas. I don't know for...

    I just got one of these in the x-line but with the 20in wheel and tire option (275/40 front 315/35 rear Dunlops) with the adaptive suspension that has the electronic controlled roll bars. It is a...

    Update, I will be running the car on Sunday at NFZ4 instead of Saturday (I'll be attending a funeral on Saturday instead). I do have the skinnies and DRs on and they work very well. The Silver Bullet...

    I'm a farmer and I understand that comment completely. What's at issue here is who you vote for. If liberals (yes Democrats) are in power this is what you get. Stop voting for them because you like...

    We agree, as I said "torque over a wider rpm range with gearing to match" or i.e. gearing to take advantage of the torque available. The time issue I spoke of has to do with rpm, in that the more...

    Yes I do. The factor not mentioned is time, which is an important part of the HP/TQ equation, If it takes you more time to produce the given torque capability, the same is true of the horsepower...
  8. All factors very true, but torque over a wider...

    All factors very true, but torque over a wider rpm range with gearing to match and similar horsepower to a car with a narrow power band and enough gearing to try and compensate, is going to lose any...

    I know you're being facetious, but you actually are making a pretty decent argument for the actual truth. So let me guess, are you one who believes the greater hp per liter is the answer to speed?...

    Well, you could substitute several cars in that statement, heavily modded ZO6s not being the least of them!

    Sounds like a nut swinger move if ever I've seen one. Trying to convince someone to race an unknown car could be like bringing a knife to a gun fight. Typical move by the one who is scared, hoping he...

    Wow, I actually read all 12 pages of inept reasoning of why "this" car can't possibly beat "that" car because it doesn't have... (fill in the blanks) as much power, a manual instead of DCT, blah,...

    Registered today for the Saturday run. I might be bringing The Silver Bullet out on drag radials so you all better be ready! LOL! It's going to be running well either way, and you know you want some,...

    Wow that is impressive, especially the 1/8th mile speed, basically the same speed there as my ZO6. And this was a new model M5 with nothing but a ECU tune? I'm getting a new X5 V8tt soon, I might...

    Unfortunately no, I'll be in Tahoe with my family. Possibly a very long shot at making it on Sunday, but I wouldn't bet on it. Hopefully Omega Motorsport will have an event soon also and I can make...

    S63/S63TU: Totally stock new M5 with 590rwhp??

    That's right according to the owner I met at Famoso Raceway yesterday. He claims he took delivery in Germany and it's a US spec/California car with no modifications. It ran 11.42@128. Now, anyone...

    If you're ever out this way for an event, hopefully we can meet and have a go with the cars. Racing can be unpredictable, so who knows what might happen. :-)

    Are/Were you from Bakersfield, or just visited the Bakersfield street racing scene back then? PM me and let me know who you are, etc.

    Nice kill. Are you in California? If so sign up for the No Fly Zone 3, 1/2 mile roll racing at Minter Field Airport near Bakersfield. I would like to race your Audi with my C6 ZO6.

    Actual races involve other things than just how much power you have, otherwise we could just all bench race and declare the highest HP car the winner! Thankfully people still line up their cars and...

    I've heard they shift rather slowly regardless of the trans setting. Anyone know if that's true?

    Does anyone know how fast the Aventador went? I was there Saturday but it didn't run, but looks as if it did on Sunday.

    Well, actually it was a CAI and a tune. I had 503rwhp at the last NFZ 2. I've recently added Pfadt tri-Y headers and retuned. I haven't got a new dyno reading because of faulty dyno electronics, but...
