ESS VT2-600 M3 6MT VS G-Power SKII+ M3 DCT



Not sure if this is a repost, but came across this video on youtube. Terrible showing for the GPower car considering its also DCT

Funny how he throws his body into it and how hard he's clapping the big pedal. (Who knows...I'm probably worse)

No chance that thing is supercharged lol. If it is that poor guy either is -
A: worst driver ever and needs to leave the DCT in auto mode at all times or
B: demand his money back from G-power

The blue car is obviously supercharged, for if it wasn't Per would have pulled alot harder much quicker. The guy can row the gears thats for sure

Lol I know you aren't chalking up that huge victory to shifting gears haha. And any person who had driven a high horsepower manual will tell the 1st to 2nd and the 2nd to 3rd are the hardest due to modulating throttle and wheel spin. I do realize he started in 2nd but he didn't have any wheel spin to deal with so that makes things a whole lot easier. Regardless though, impressive win. Wonder what's going through the g power owners mind lol

+1. And he's got this power/gangster lean thing going on. I like his style.

ESS VT2 cars are ridiculous fast.

I wonder what pulley that G power car has!

If it's the one that comes in the box .... it's probably only achieving 5.5 PSi and barely 550 crank HP.

That happened to us everytime when we sold the G Power kits here in the UK.

Here's what Gustav claims it runs Sal, 6psi, not far off from what you think it is -

No wonder it's not keeping up. On our dyno that would not break 575hp even with 95 US / 99 Euro Octane.

We have plenty of evidence of that!

We complained at the low HP readings compared to the first car we did. It was suggested that there was a boost leak after logging everything and compared to first car. Did boost leak test. 100% no leaks. Measured pulley.... different! Went from 5.5 PSi > 7 PSi. Made 600+ HP.
It never drove right on with 5.5 PSi setup, the map was clearly not designed to run this low boost. As soon as it went to 7 PSi which was what the calibration was made for it totally transformed the drive and power.

You need near 7 PSi to achieve 600hp which is what the VT2-600 actually achieves according to the UK dealer over here on the same machine as ours.
