It's not that you were "cocky" or not, but after Scott posted the vid of him winning ... then posted a vid of him losing, you chose to agrue that the win was more substantial as far as proving the validity of the M3's power. Again, I am not trying to single you out. I am not sure what I would do. It is easy to be defensive of your own personal investment (in this case an M3). If an M3 beat an M6 I would be skeptical (I own an M6).I get what your saying, but honestly I don't feel that Drew and I are like that at all. We've posted many vids of me losing to M5's and never discredited anything about them. And on the reverse side, have posted vids winning against M5's and haven't had the "cocky" attitude about it at all. These are cars, and we do this all for fun. :cheers:
I guess I don't understand that comment. How do you see the videos different from the rest of us?Nah, he just posted up some vids so people can see some other results, nothing more. Regardless I don't see the vids quite the same way some of you do, but I guess that's been one of the problems all along, fair enough. :cheers:
Thank you for the post but given that I am an M6 owner it is easy to dismiss with the mod factor... which is to say an a heavily modded minivan could beat an M6... depends on the mods.This is me running Grant's M6, pretty Dark, but Aram's words say it all, I'm at 7.5 psi about 440WHP at this time, Enjoy. If grant was modded, I'd venture to say he'd get me.
I don't own a Porsche but have driven a few stock turbo 911s. When the power comes on it's wild. I still find this unlikely but you posted the video so it must be true.Don't find it unlikely at all, 0-60 he'd smoke me on street tires, but from a roll this is me running a 997TT, more than 1 video, at 8psi and a few more bolt ons, we did quite a few runs, definently a fun night.
You can hear it very plainly in the first video... at least I could, just before Darren says "Oh [email protected]" The second video is hard to make out because Darren is laughing.Where in those intial videos is there an indication that he hit the rev limiter? I can understand 1 shift on one pull, we all do it, but listen to the motor in those vids, nothing indicates he hit the rev limiter as far as I can tell. The driver and passangers are blown away at how Scott pulled.
I haven't taken it to a strip. Maybe this summer. This is one of those cases where you own an M3 so you want to believe it's the most fantastic car on the road. If you had some race fuel it would be a good run huh? Do you think Scott's car will hang with the 105 he has in it now? We will see.The Ford GT would most likely get me pump vs. pump, but on race fuel I might have chance, what did you run in the 1/4 mile? I hit 11.5 at 122MPH.
It's there, at some point when I feel like cutting the video to bring out the sound I will, for your benefit. Right now I feel like I have wasted way to much energy arguing with someone on the Internet. ouichI explained it all in my last post, but here's a quick summery of what I mean, I don't hear Q hitting the rev limiter AT ALL, and I don't see the follow up Vids from 3rd gear up to 6th, as an *** kicking they look pretty close through 3 gears, no doubt Q starts to pull, but he doesn't start to walk until very high speeds and when he does it's not by alot.
I think you do understand how it is relative, hence your reply.That's a funny vid of the minivan, I'm not sure how it's relevant, but I guess I should have been more specific about the mods, if the M6 had some bolt ons, headers, exhaust, pullies, ECU flash, etc. he'd got me at that time, that's all Bro, just showing you that it's probable and the runs were damn close, he got me in another run. I saw one today, sounded unreal, I can't open my car up right now though a new clutch just went in.
You beaten me with your need to have the last word. This discussion seems fruitless so I will end it with this...They are beasts, I was just showing you, not trying to say every SC'd M3 will win, clearly they won't. With an ECU flash that car would get me good, the 997TT is my favorite car, to beat one was a great feeling, no doubt it's possible that if I ran into another one he might get me, all cars are not created equal, maybe he hit the rev limiter in all those runs. A friend has a Tip, we plan on doing some runs soon, I'll be sure to post those up.... ect... ect... ect...
I am taking up to Classic BMW's DD machine tomorrow morning. Anyone in the area who would like to watch... it should something to see. I think you might actually need the ear plugs for this one. :haha2:What does he make to the wheels with those mods, smaller pulley, etc.?
