Eloy mentioned this earlier in the thread but it looks like the M5 had some heat soak issues since he left the car running for about 45 minutes while waiting in line.

Understood...but this caused Eloy to lose 100hp? Lets say with the gtr's few bolt-on's plus the usual 40hp factory underated hp rating they usually have, the car may have 550hp. Eloy put down 578hp to the wheels on a dyno that reads low. We are only giving up a maximum of 200 lbs. to the gtr. I realize this kit is not going to transform the car into a bugatti veyron but it just wasn't what I was expecting at all. Maybe I'm expecting too much.

I also don't understand why the car was running for 45 min knowing you are going to race. Everyone is waiting to see video proof of what these kits will do.

576whp on dyno dynamics with dj .10 correction. In Dyno Dynamics 0 correction in shoot out mode, the car dynoed 524whp. The car pulls hard and we cant bench race these two cars based on assumptions of hp numbers. That GTR was fast and the m5 with this set up is fast as well. It was a good run. However fast we go, there will always be someone faster. I am extremely happy with how this kit came out and I have no regrets.

I have already purchased. There isn't a video out there that can make me change my mind I just think something is wrong with that race. Now if the race was another half mile longer I am sure you would have started pulling pretty hard The Stage 2 kit is a great kit and it has so much more potential.

Anyone know how much power the SMG can handle? I would imagine the SMG pump will give out before the clutch.

Also the video of Eloy's car vs the M6 with just the Stage 1 kit was pretty amazing to me.

Eloy or Paul, how do you think your car will stack up against the ESS SC M3s? Just talking about highway runs here, I dont plan on drag racing anyone from a stand still in my car because I know I will lose.

Those ESS M3s are FAST. We would have to do high speed starts to even it out.
