AirStrip --NoFLYZone III-- Who is going? Can't wait!!

Well I missed out on shift s3ctor due to my transmission problem but now that I have that figured out I am getting ready to install my big single turbo. Weather is suppose to be around 60 degrees !!! Also the airstrip is getting new pavement, its going to be awesome! My turbo isn't even installed yet and I am already calling out every supercharged M3 I know! haha. I have a grudge match with a HPF 700HP E46 M3. Click here to enlarge

I just signed up today.

You have a 6AT and you are going to try to run a single?

I missed NFZ 2 in May as I was out of the country but I did attend the first NFZ event in March of this year.

Should be good fun.

Here's one of my runs:

Yes correct. Going to try to push the new transmission a bit.

Good luck.

Terry Burger pushed that tranny on his RB turbo 135 and blew his motor at Shift Sector after the tranny free-revved. Prem was the first 6AT with the single turbo and after a year of trying to get his trans built, he gave up and sold his car for a new M5. I hear CupertinoSteve is doing ok but I didn't know if he raced his. The main issue is on the 4-5 shift. Most of the time the trans just won't complete the shift so you can't participate in events like Shift Sector or NoFlyZone because you're done at 135mph with a lot more runway to go.

Looks like 6AT is the biggest limit on N54. How does the new 8AT hold up with heavily modified N55(let's say a lot torque)? Anyone?
