    BOOST, MORE BOOST, I WANT MORE BOOST!! isnt that what your used to saying Click here to enlarge ?

    tuning has everything to do with it, but as a person that provides the hardware--- if you "get around to it", should probably leave the tuning talk to the people that tuned it.. would love to run an VTT STG 2 car around here, but sadly, he had to go with RB's but they are "about" equal, and i PERSONALLY know what they can do, so I prefer it as they are the benchmark fr hybrids, and i want the best an N54 can do.. and then ill line up against my brother-- if "someone gets around to it" (selling a stg 3 kit)

    banned form another non-vendor thread in 4,3,2,1..

    I can't figure you out Vargas... not since day one but since I am not one to cause forum banter or stir people up this will be my final comment. I have no idea who said these won't be up to par with RBs but whoever it was, was clearly an idiot as they are both near identical upgrades. What I am pointing out is that the only superiority you will have in this market with these turbos will be long term reliability if they check out (which remains to be seen when these turbos have ~20-30k miles on them). It's pretty obvious neither has any sort of performance advantage on the dyno or street. What makes this interesting is that a manual car with a novice driver lost by only half a car... I don't know if this is to be attested to the fact that the RB's were stronger top end or the tunes were off... not onlyy that but one was running way more e85 which could have been tuned stronger but you said yourself the cars are both running a conservative tune... how conservative each is, is only in the tuner's heads.

    good day

    yourright, as i said above, i wont. but my brother will.. (different names BTW, so unless you plan on blacklisting the entire east coast, give up on trying to stop us) and apparantly neither will others, because you may only get them out "if you get around to it"

    Am I the only one who doesn't know about the GTX compressor wheel on the VTT stage 2s? I thought both the RBs and the VTTs were using the 15T for the compressor wheel?

    Here were my two fastest runs of the day.

    @idriveslo got me by a car.

    In the other run I barely beat my friends GTR to the stripe.... but I went from a dig and he puttered out to the cones and tried to run me down.

    In my other 3 runs I beat an M6 from a dig... he struggled on that launch though and was closing fast. Also beat a tuned vette (non z06) with intake and exhaust. I got beat by the Alpha 9 Porsche (surprise!).

    I have a bunch of video from this event... I will throw it up when I get a chance. The fastest car was a 213 MPH Gen-2 Eclipse... Insane car - very very fast. His buddy had an older (I think) Eclipse that went off the track - and came too close for comfort to a house at the end of the track. It was a cool time - but figured they would roll on too... For a half mile, it takes a lot of the variant.

    Not sure what all I have - the video is being processed right now. I know it's going to be pretty shaky - I have a pretty lengthy zoom lens on, and it was cold (excuse). Click here to enlarge

    Cheers.

    I might have a run of you. I am pretty sure I got one from all the bimmers there today. The 335i I was thinking of was a blue coupe - pretty heavy tints with chrome trim on the windows (I think de-badged) and ran a GT500. You know which one I am talking about?

    There were two blue ones. One was the VTTS2 car, and the other was a FBO I think.

    because they started the cars going from a roll and from a dig at the same point - so everyone went from a dig to get more MPH.

    There is no quieting someone who loves to read what they wrote tell cool story bro stories all day. Let him talk its funny to me. Dude doesn't have an N54 yet wants to be relevant in the platform since he hasn't been since he was an RB tester back in the 20's so he uses "my brother has a 335 he wants to make faster as an excuse for never leaving a forum he doesn't even have any ties too. I guess his brother lives off the grid and has no Internet, cell phone or way to do research so big bro has to online shop for him. LM is the biggest drama starter on this forum who literally has no reason to be here. Which tells you, he just likes drama. Reminds me of a lot of girls I know. When you get an N54 let us all know. Thanks cool story guy

    These are protos. I had 15T, 16T, 19T GTX wheels made to my specs for a few stage 2's and dan is testing the 16T's. I will most likely be sticking with the 15T's but in GTX form over the 16T's but as always I'm trying new things, pushing the platform. RB is happy to sell you the same turbos with no changes since he started and some people think they can't be improved upon. I will be announcing stage 2 batch 2 in the next week or 2. There will be some fun options to choose from. Thanks for the support guys. Have a good night.

    I'm FBO, and run the in-line tank LPFP upgrade and was on the BMS race flash. Was running on Map 7 these runs, like I normally do.

    Mixed in MS109 with E85 at the track to make it easier on the fueling system, but I didn't change anything about the tune from my daily driver.

    There seems to be some confusion when it comes to the tuning on these two cars. Let me reiterate what was done. @mithiral67 's RB car was tuned for E40 the best it can given 450wtq was outlined as a goal in terms of peak torque down low. As we all know that 450wtq isn't and can't be held to redline as otherwise the RB car would be making A LOT more peak power Click here to enlarge It put down ~480whp, dynos have been shown as well as datalogs. Now, this car has had some map revisions after the dyno that may have made it put down more power at the event. Jake will send me latest logs and I'll post them.

    Vargas car was tuned for E50. Not for E70 or a combo with any type of race gas. @idriveslo asked about throwing in 3 gallons of 100 octane for the event and I said it can't hurt of course. We didn't tune the car for race gas. The reason even E70 made it in the picture is just his fuel scalar setting in the map. We had it set for E70 because on E50 fuel scalar settings his fuel trims were maxing at 4500rpm due to torque so we upped them from E50 to E70 and the short term trims normalized.

    All the 6AT vs 6MT comments and comments on timing corrections. For those that aren't aware 6AT cars, on average, timing correct more post shift than 6MT cars which would put the Vargas car in a slight disadvantage from that point of view. From the point of view of boost (I have to see the latest logs from the last map RB car ran) the vargas car ran about 1.5psi more at 5000rpm than the RB car but then the two would come down very close to each other. Bench racing would say the Vargas car had an advantage, maybe but it would also timing correct more, etc etc. 6MT car would definitely be at a disadvantage launching and shifting compared to a 6AT car doing a 2nd gear launch. So many things here guys...

    Take it as you will of course. Given what I've read on e90 its a bit of a gong show. From what I've seen the cars perform very similarly given the tuning is also very similar. Don't expect miracles and I'm glad both guys enjoyed their day out and managed to come back from 1/2 mile racing without any issues! This is what's of most importance to this event/race. Winning is important but if you break down at the event or the next day what's the point Click here to enlarge Both cars have more in them with more aggressive tuning. The question is how much more than this is sufficiently reliable given both are daily driven.
