Went against my friends BMW 645i just for fun and my V series pulled on him and flew past like it was nothing. I never thought of the STS-V as the quickest cars i have owned but i was really impressed.

Wow...I have the W4M tune 2 installed and had it in sport mode. I noticed the w4m tune is much more noticable in sport mode than standard mode.

Did you go from a roll? His weight advantage wouldnt matter as much at that point. Also, in stock form, youve got an extra 140 hp, maybe 160-170 presently. I would have bet on you.

Nice run on the BMUU :thumbsup:


However this next year (and some now) we are going to be in serious competition, if not beat by several models that are non-V, or M type cars. The 5 series BMUU and the M56 are a couple of examples. The M56 will be N/A and not suffer for heatsoak or FI lag.

Our local raceway just opened a new, 0.9 mile sprint kart track with 30ft-wide pavement. The Lotus and NSX clubs have been using it for lap days and it's also been used by drifters (in addition to karts and supermoto bikes). Now they're opening it up for open lap days every other Wednesday. I might take the V down there and see what kind of time I can post. It won't beat my shifter kart, for sure, but after watching some of the slow pokes baby their NSX's around, I might be able to whip a couple of 'em. Supposedly, this car held the class record at the Nurbergring until the latest M5 BMW beat it, so I'm hoping it will surprise me.

I miss Kart Racing. I grew up racing 100cc Super Stock Light in IKF. We had an Emmick with a Komet 55. (GOOD TIMES, GOOD TIMES)
