" Okay guys, here's the latest so far, and what we need:

Clutch - We decided on our Twin Plate design which, of course, includes our flywheel also. MSRP will be very affordable. We have the 335i 06-08 fitment almost done, so are looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested

Flywheel - Our 1pc Chromoly Flywheel weighs 9kg, and can be used with the oem clutch (or any other oem fitment clutch). MSRP will make it very difficult for you to want to buy any other brand flywheel We have the 335i 06-08 fitment almost done, so are looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested

Suspension Arms - We are working on these just now, and should have something within the next few weeks. Again, looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested

Axles - We've done our preliminary research on these, and all we need now is to find some OEM Axles so that we can take our measurements. If anyone has a spare set of axles that they could loan us (and, if you currently drive a 500lbft+ car), please PM me. The donor will get a set of our new axles at no charge for testing (hence the torque requirement) "

Any fitment concerns with a 6AT XI?
We have not tried any XI fitments so I can not guarantee fitment.

That's a work in progress Or take your m3 away so you can get back to work on the 435.

Extremely jealous how much power you have pulled from the M in a months time. "

Sticky created the thread 2015 BMW F82 M4 vs. 2014 Porsche 991 Carrera EVO track battle comparison.
" We already saw this comparison earlier in the year when Car and Driver compared the F82 M4 to the Porsche 991 Carrera. In that comparison, the M4 came out on top. Let's see what happens when the Brits over at EVO get a hold of both of these cars for a track comparison. This is the big question, does the M4's power and updated chassis allow it to beat the lighter rear engined Porsche 991 Carrera around the track?


EVO does the comparison well showing both cars lapping at the same time. This allows some of the trademark characteristics of the cars to show. Namely that the 911 has less understeer on turn in but this is the area that one traditionally has to be careful with a 911 getting back on the power exiting the apex so that oversteer does not bite you in rear end.

The 911 handling is definitely tighter. The M4's additional mass shows as it tends to push a bit. The 911's lead built in and out of turns is made up by the M4's power. Finesse versus muscle is what we witness. The tighter the course gets, the more it ends up favoring the 991.

Laptimes (for reference a 458 Speciale laps this track in 1:14.2): "

@Josh@Cobb can you give us some insite of how accurate this paramter is in calculating torque and how it is coming it with its numbers ?
The torque is calculated in the DME based on modeling done internally. It should be reasonably accurate until you start messing with load to torque tables or anything else that would start to skew the calculations. At that point you may be making it more accurate for your setup or completely ruining those calculations. If the car is running well with just a flash, those values should be pretty good since they are used for quite a bit of the DMEs requests. "
