  1. That's HUGE! I knew it was a lot of weight, but...

    That's HUGE! I knew it was a lot of weight, but that's incredible... I was just browsing Alibaba.com - they have some Lion packs for golf carts (350 max CC amps), but can't find anything for car. I...
  2. Now this has got me all curious (weight...

    Now this has got me all curious (weight reduction) - any members here know what a stripped interior M3 would weigh in at? Have no ideas what the seats weigh in this car. I am talking remove fronts -...
  3. I want an Lion battery for my car too, but...

    I want an Lion battery for my car too, but haven't found one that isn't an absurd price. I am thinking of making one myself at this point. Have you found any that aren't at the 1K mark?

    The thing...

    That's a shame... I like to see these "bigger" companies stick around, as it gives me faith that their product is good. Obviously, that's not the case here - and that sucks. I guess we will see what...

    My lord that thing is insanely quick. The second race wasn't even fair, and the Agera still reeled him in like a biatch.

    I definitely drive as fast as possible from point A to point B as possible weather and traffic permitting. That's why I have an M3 - and love it. Track and street are two separate things, but still -...
  8. And by the way, about this whole "turbocharged...

    And by the way, about this whole "turbocharged era" - this has happened before in the 70s during the oil crisis. This is where things like the 300zx, Supra, RX-7, etc. came from. To say that the...

    Yep, this is true. Just drove the C7 for a few days in Florida, and still can't get over how good that engine was. For 70k, I would bet there is not one car that can compete for the price/performance...

    A very basic understanding of physics will immediately reveal to you that putting MORE "THINGS" between the intake port and the outside/intake (opposite of dethrottling) increase lag, reduce...
  11. Yeah, good point... I guess it's not too...

    Yeah, good point... I guess it's not too impressive when looking at it like that. Things are crazy in the car world; come along way in 5 years.
  12. I know it's an FI engine and all, but it's pretty...

    I know it's an FI engine and all, but it's pretty impressive to make 295 ft-lbs of torque out of a little 2.0 liter engine. When you realize that an STi is making less torque with another half a...

    Nah, it's not throwing money blindly - at least in my mind. I drive as fast as I can within legal limits, and want my car setup "right". I would get an alignment, and have them check the bushings....

    I had no idea Porsche manufactured tractors; I knew about Lamborghini - but not Porsche. That's awesome.

    I was curious, so found some information if anyone is interested:...

    It sounds like you are right on the money - if you feel a "shimmy" in the rear of your car (mine was at it worst in the rain), it's most likely your rear sub-frame and/or the bushings.

    Take your...
  16. S54: Jesus - that motor is a jewel. I love it, and...

    Jesus - that motor is a jewel. I love it, and every time I see something like this, I regret selling my E46. I need another one ASAP. 370 RWHP is no joke out of a NA 3.2 liter engine; that's a TON of...

    They are impressive, that's for sure. A lot of people that I hear about when I go down south to ride have FI setups, and supposedly they are nuts. They are pretty fast stock to be honest - when you...

    Ha! That would be awesome... It's a two-stroke, so it might get complicated (although, now you got me thinking <g>) - but that would be a fast quad. Query "fast banshee" in youtube - some guys on the...

    That thing is nutty quick, and the driver obviously has some skill/comfort with that car/course. I haven't seen many AWD P-Cars doing drifts in a controllable manner. Looks like they dialed in that...

    Yikes, that thing is sick. I have heard over and over again that they are amazing, and have seen a few at the Badlands - but never had a chance to see one move and/or drive one. I just recently...
  21. Yeah, I guess I would say read the article in the...

    Yeah, I guess I would say read the article in the 3 images - and that's with an older E46 M3. Timing is definitely pulled on 89 vs 93 or 93 vs 100... I am sure Evolve has done it also, and if we...

    I guess at that point, it's a matter of semantics, right? If you have an ECU that has a "max advance" number, and you aren't reaching it because of your octane level, you could say it's pulling...

    The key is octane, not the brand of fuel - as said in the article. Point is, timing will advance on an engine (especially a performance oriented one) - and timing advance == more power.

    Check out...

    When I say "archived on my computer" - computer should be plural. I have 4 computers on my desk - and a bunch of mining machines, and probably - idk, 15 hard drives... I am making it sound worse than...

    Ha! Thanks, appreciate it.



    I have a bunch of stuff (mostly S54/S65/M3 related) archived on my computer from over the years; this was from the June 2002 issue of Evo, and images were grabbed...
