Not doubting you or anything, but is this the E55 AMG? I thought those are E60 M5 level cars. So does this imply that a ESS SC E39 M5 can walk a E60 M5 easily?

why wouldn't it be able to?

E60's have 507 bhp and less than 400 lb/ft torque whereas Raza is probably at 550 bhp and 450+ tq

White paper.... more like toilet paper.

The newer style E55's are around 470 hp which is probably what Raza raced.

I need to get myself this kit.. I know that it's capable of beating the E55 and E60. Just by how much a how easily I am not sure. However, in one of Gustav's videos, the ESS E39 put quite a distance on the E60 with headers at speed. In any case, glad that you have it running now and I am sure the kill is just the beginning of the "rewards" to come.

It's also good to know that the stock clutch is holding up nicely. Another expense to maybe not have to consider immediately when/if one decides to go for the kit.

E60 M5 will be released early next year. We are also working on a NA package for it that will be out later this year.
