AA supercharged E93 trapped slower than full bolt on NA car not
just once but every time it ran. I was there call me a liar.

Here is my story. And I apologize to the OP (that's the "origional poster" for those as old as I am )

I ran RTB and as was posted I ran a 159 mph in the 1 mile. Was I happy? Fuck no. Why? Many reasons. One was I was running a race gas tune that was not fully tested. Was it AA's fault? Not in my option. We rushed it and we couldn't dyno it unfortunately. What do we ALL say when we mod? Shit happens.

And look at the conditions. It was damn wet. I got my ass handed to me by a built GT3 that killede in my one mile run. God love rear engined cars for off the line launches.


Was it all a waste for me? Hell no!! I finished 6th out of ALL cars at RTB for the "time attack" aka: road course. Even with my race tune, I only lost to 3 awd Gallardo's, 1 GT-R, and heavily modded 335i driven by a pro driving instructor.

6th out of 60+ entrants? I'm fycking happy.



Again, sorry to the OP, I'm just having a good time



To all the ESS and AA funboys, let us keep it on the level.



Btw, for all the crap that's gone on in this thread, I still think we all benefit in the long run.

Didn't call you a liar just saying running on wet roads and in rain storms are two different conditions to run in as one limits you and the other doesn't so much .

And as far as the friend comment goes its a figure of speech lol ease up tiger

I disagree with this comment, my car spins 5th with ease on a slightly damp street. When it's dry out I can hook up in 2nd most of the time.

Obviously there are many variables but it will decrease your Et and traps by a large amount regardless if its just wet or a rain storm.

Huge difference Imo.

just to defend ess a little bit.

1. i looked at AA,ESS, Evolve, G-power and decided on ESS as i have friends in LA, Singapore, Jakarta and Toronto that have ESS systems and have 0 problems (i cannot comment on track performance as none of those guys i know track)

2. It isnt just ess that overheats at this track. we have a g-power sk II here aswell that lasts about the same as the other ess kits. last time in my stock E46 M3 in Sepang malaysia that thing overheated too. its just asia that gives me these problems.. ive never had a car overheat in my time in toronto and la.. you can see my car list below.. ive tracked all except the civic, cls and sti and only the cars ive had in asia overheat.

3. im 100% sure if u brought an AA kit over here to jakarta it will overheat too.. its the temprature and humidity thats making it overheat.

4. sorry to roman if i created any bad publicity i just wanted to ask other members what they have done. if anything hope this helps you as you have shown that you respond to your customers.




Thanks to everyones suggestions. the car is still in the dealership getting an aeromotions R2 installed while getting a complete checkup. ive decided on trying that water wetter first and hope that helps. if that does not work ill get the m24 and if that still doesnt make me last then ill try meth as a last resort.

Not so sure how meth will be like on this car as my last car with meth was an HPF stage 3 m3. and if you had meth on you better be fully throttling it or the car acts a little funny if u gas half way and let go.


Thank you all for your input on this. but this thread got too off topic for me

ciao!
Too bad this thread-jacked...interesting info in here

I track in Sepang and I can say that if your car is supercharged, you will need larger radiators and oil coolers. M24s will not help...you need something bigger.

The only cars that can run continuously in Sepang are the stock M3s and even that, prob not more than 4 laps consecutively. My car will overheat in 1.5 laps and I have the M24 radiators and oil coolers. If I want to track, I will need additional radiators

BTW, how much better is engine ice from water wetter?

uh hmmmm... Hi Everyone. Figured this was a great spot for a shameless plug.. We offer great pricing, service, and install (if needed) on all ESS kits.

btw... we have a little experience with both of these systems.. So PM with any questions or concerns.
