Every other person with a S/C has used dynojet AND practically everyone on this website(E90/M3post) uses dynojet, so why would they use anything else? I'm sure everyone knows that dynojets read higher than other dyno's.

Yeah seems the SC's are using dynojet, so they should just keep using dynojet. I only know RPi and Gintani using Dyno Dynamics.

Not the fastest way around a track but a good way to go through a set of tires fast.

if you don't want the ESS SC kit for just drift then what kind of drivetrain mods do you recommend ? An overpowered stock drivetrain will make the car undrivable and dangerous in street driving. Also that rising torque curve will make you drift all the time. Even then without ESC you will loose control at the slightest mistake and if you're already going fast the car may not have clearance to drift and you will crash and die. Just saying it makes no sense to get the kit without significant drivetrain mods and some kind of tuned ESC. But seems great !

LOL wtf. This isnt a Mercedes Bro. He's drifting on purpose not because that's all he can do. Its a drift competition that's the whole point. Get a clue.

ok, i don't really know mercedes but what's an ESC? i only think of the key in the upper left-hand corner of the keyboard

at first i thought you meant DSC but then i saw "tuned ESC," do you mean like an ECU TUNE? I believe the kit comes with a tune plus reflash if ever needed.

We like them alot. They make very good power, are very reliable and offer several options based on what our needs might be for a particular design. We will use them in all of our new kits including the E39 M5, E46 M3, Z4 M, E60 M5 and E90 M3.
