Sticky created the thread Dodge gives the Charger a cosmetic update for the 2015 model year along with an 8-speed automatic for all models.
" Here is your new 2015 Dodge Charger. Well, not exactly new. The drivetrain is the exact same. You have your 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 with an output of 292 horses available in rear wheel or all wheel drive. The 5.7 liter Hemi V8 is rear wheel drive only and offers the same familiar 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque.

What about the SRT model? Yep, it is the same as well with the 6.4 liter V8 with 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Is anything different? Yes, the 5-speed auto is finally ditched for an 8-speed unit across the model range.

The changes are mostly cosmetic with the headlights being updated to trendy LED units. The taillights also get an LED update. There also are new wheel choices. The interior also gets some updates with new trim options, an updated gauge cluster, and a three-spoke steering wheel.

Overall, a mild update that tries to keep the platform looking fresh.

Those differences wouldn't explain the issues with various PCs and K-Line cars though.

I'll double check the link configuration and some other things to see if I can spot something that might explain these problems.
I've suspected something on the bt cable end dealing with their drivers on different computers, but not really sure, just a wild guess. A port for the normal cable would answer that question I would think. "

0-60Motorsports created the thread WPC Rod Bearings Install & Beisan Vanos Refresh.
" Well guys after looking at all the Beisan Vanos refreshes being done and taking part in the WPC Treated Rod Bearings GB I decided it was about time to get to installing these parts to ensure reliability and longevity on my M3s S54.

My car has been having a misfire (causing choking at low rpm take off) http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=472135. This will be the first step. Once we solve this we will start on the Vanos and Rod Bearings.

My car has 64,400km on the clock and the Rod bearing recall was performed at BMW Bahrain at 29,000km on the clock (meaning recall bearings only have 35,400km on them).

Since then I have taken the car out for some track days and some spirited driving. I have only ever used Castrol TWS and change my oil around every 5-6000km. Many will say why change the rod bearing shells. My answer to that is Curiosity, Fun and Boredom...in that order lol.

Here are some pics of the parts.... "

With e85 maybe, pump FBO they seem to be a few MPH slower, but this is still a great race. I could be wrong, I'm a bit new to that community.

Would love to see you run a similarly modded coyote with an auto and torque concertor, maybe a 1 piece drive shaft. The autos make less whp but run a bit quicker. "

Sticky created the thread Volkswagen determined to have the world's most powerful four-cylinder - Introducing spectacular the MKVII Golf R 400 Concept.
" Volkswagen is not playing around at least when it comes to turbocharged four-cylinder performance. There is a reason Volkswagen lured AMG's head of engine development Friedrich Eichler away (likely with a wheelbarrow full of money). Eichler is the man responsible for the M133 AMG 2.0 liter four-cylinder in the CLA45 AMG which currently holds the world's most powerful production four-cylinder title at an underrated 355 horses.

Enter the Golf R 400 which previews Volkswagen's hotter EA888 2.0 liter direct injected and turbocharged four-cylinder motor. You guessed it, output is 400 PS (395 horses) placing the Golf R 400 considerably ahead of the 45 AMG models. The new motor also revs higher going to 7200 rpm. This power is sent to all four wheels through a 6-speed dual clutch DSG gearbox.

The 331 lb-ft of torque combined with the all wheel drive and dual clutch transmission make for a quick and likely conservative 0-60 sprint of 3.9 seconds. This time is helped out by the 3130 pound-curb weight which is incredible with the safety standards in this day and age especially for an wheel drive turbo car.

Volkswagen, this is the kind of car you build if you want to turn things around in the USA. This is the kind of car with attitude that will get you noticed. Who is not going to like a Golf that can dust a Porsche 911 right off the showroom floor?

If you built it, they will come. Which considering your track record probably means you won't do it. If you do go through with it do not make the mistake of not bringing this car to the USA. We may just never forgive you. Seriously, keep your Phaeton and give us this instead. "

There are some IAT benefits and to supplement the HPFP. Now that I know all is good, I don't have cylinder washing, and havent had any apparent issue with distribution or atomization, I plan on testing a .375lpm nozzle. Up until now I've been running a .225lpm nozzle. "

Maybe you should listen some more. He was actually talking about responsability of the sport.
Ron Dennis, as sporting director of Mc Laren, is very knowledgable about the politics and technique in F1.
He is very outspoken and worth listening to.
And in this interview he's saying some very true things about people's motives to their reactions. "
