Good god Drew, your M is a killer man. That is some serious HP out there. Just curious, how do you guys think that ESS system would do for the M on a road course like VIR?

Cool vids.

Forum policy - no street racing videos... Must not apply to videos of US citizens in Mexico... . Yeah I know that policy is not very much enforced.

Who wouldn't... if money were no object it would be the 458 over almost anything else for me. When money is an object, the M3 is amazing and not a bad second choice at all.

wow, i would never in my mind imagine a m3 ess vt625 kit would pull/be that close to a gtr p800. Those things are MONSTERS.

So happy the ferrari guy is actually driving the car the way it should be, I would do the same.

Cool video, i need a supercharger asap!

Wow, I am impressed. I knew the ESS Supercharger made a difference, but never knew how much.

If I could afford that 9ff, I think I'd try to run from the cops on purpose.

So basically we are now calling the entry-level Ferrari a "supercar"?

Yes the 458 is amazing, I drool over it. But it is not a supercar. A supercar is a Zonda, Koenigsegg, or Veyron.

Same goes for the GTR, it is not a supercar. Yes it is quick, but it is missing some main ingredients to be labeled a supercar. I hate how that word is just tossed around now.
