" Had 8 bottles of Joseph Phelps Insignia, 2000 vintage, on Easter. Needed some breathing time to open but was great. Luckily it was cellared well although one of the corks disintegrated upon contact with the corkscrew "

" I'm calling Porsche to win this years Le Mans. Let's be honest here for a second, Mazda is the only Japanese manufacturer to ever win at Le Mans. Nissan had a chance to win it with the r89 or 92 can't remember which but did not race in Le Mans that year. Porsche will tough it out against Audi and where the hell is puegot? "

" Had a glass of Tercero Grenache over the weekend at Faith & Flower in LA. Don't know the vintage. First time I've had a single varietal grenache. It was very good, nice bright fruits and sturdy tannins. Reminds me of a combination of Pinot and Cab. "

" Really improves with UCC solution?
I live in a warm climate usually (in winter to 5c and in summer to 40c) and have seen that the solution would add:
To mix 1 bottle 75W140NS and the remainder of 1 bottle of MT-90
Its correct?
Can this improve to go out in 1st gear or to remove noise is only at idle? "

VargasTurboTech replied to the thread LSX NITROUS CAMARO vs NISSAN GT-R & POLICE CHASE.
" Haha. Thats my test track. Spent 2 hours there last night testing the HPFP. Cops DO NOT CARE if you race there. The routinely line up and watch the races, and then after a reasonable amount of time throw a couple blips on the siren and shut it down. I commonly blow through the stop sign at 120+ at the end of runs, there has been cops parked there, they don't even look up. Its owned by the port of Oakland and is supposedly private property. The only reason the reason the cops would fuck with these guys is if they are being idiots, and were racing after they left the track. Otherwise its pretty much a free for all out there as long as your respect it. "

The more and more I think about this, the more it bothers me... You are right - it's ridiculous to claim a weight savings - when a large proportion of the "weight savings" is coming from a $8,000 ceramic brake option - and another coming from shit that is just bolted to the car. I mean, for the first part (brakes) - 99% of the people ordering the car are likely not tracking it/won't purchase the carbon brakes (curious what the actual % will be), so it's not even relevant. For the second part (battery), it's cool and all - but you can replace this yourself. Yes, it's "new technology" in regards to putting it on a production car, but it would be equivalent to if the old M3 had a spare tire, and they removed it - and said "look at all the weight we shaved off".

I was expecting a lot more out of this car. Yes, we knew the engine wasn't going to be an S65/S54 - or anything like this, but when they said they were focusing on weight/handling/etc. - and we see this - it really makes me question how much engineering went into this car.

It hurts me to say, but I almost want the car to suck at everything at this point - purely so the people responsible for this crap can get what's coming to them. You want to pull this shit, then go work for Hyundai.

BMW is losing it, they really are - and I hope they start to realize this very quickly, and get back to the roots of what made these cars shine. "

" Why is it that its hate if someone is not praising your car? Its not like something was said to bash you. The S54 did win the event and an E92 M3 won as well. I don't understand how ppl get so emotional on this site when someone mentions certain peoples' cars. "

I am assuming none of you been in the performance world too long a time, going back just a few years when most all cars had a clutch cable, or no where near as efficient hydraulic clutch set up, pedal feel was literally crazy at times to hold that kind of power. The spec 3+ is like a Cadillac in my opinion. Break it in properly and sure its got touchy engagement but as far as pedal feel, I get in my 78 911 and I laugh at the effort required. I get back in the 335, the pedal effort is like pushing a feather in comparison. The tranny chatter can be annoying with the AC on. I wish we could bump the idle up a little, but that has nothing to with the clutch.
For 700 that's a good trade off. I'd say some of the biggest problems and I'm guilty are people buying the 3+ even though they will never see over 550 ft lbs due to the few reports that were out there that 2+ and 3+ were basically the same so you might as well get the 3+. I've since heard a few people say that 2+ is definitely less chattery and grippy. As for the trans noises, aren't the springs in the clutch disc supposed to have similar affects as the DMFW just with alot less travel. Any chance that softer disc springs or some sort of progressive spring would help the trans chatter? "
