This is pure bullshit. If true people would be flocking to the car. I don't doubt what you saw on the dyno, the bullshit part is that the change in plate is the cause. So when are you building one Danny? You of all people can't tolerate driving your now underdog to a 97 vvt. Put the old plate in the na you are talking about and dyno. Pull the plate and dyno. Tell us what the total gain in hp you see. Then all of us will do the same. You don't need a top prep car to do this test. You don't need to be on the same dyno as you. All we need to know is what was your relative hp change. Then I will see what my relative change is.
What you are implying is that a top prep na 1.8 will now make 133 to 135 hp. Bullshit.And if any of you saw those numbers on the dyno at the track, you would be pulling the car apart down to the last bolt. But please discuss with Xavier so he can change the dyno guidelines in the NASA rules to reflect the new reality of 135 hp na 1.8s.
" This is pure bullshit" - really James - your ???????? speaks volumes with this comment. I spoke about what I have seen with my own two eyes with three cars tested on the same dyno (NA 1.8 (not mine), My best NB 99 at the time and and my best NB VVT at the time). I also referenced acceleration traces that I overlayed on my computer from two different drivers in two different cars on the same track on the same day.
And you call BULLSHIT??? Really - What do I gain by these claims, whats in it for me? Why would I mislead you?
My best 99 has never made more than 128HP on Rossini Dyno, my best VVT has never made more than 126HP on Rossini dyno. If you do the math with what I stated above you can get PRECISELY what the unrestricted NA1.8 made in terms of HP. Note that I did NOT supply you with ALL the information you might need to make an assessment of which of the three the better weapon is for you, but for everyone, there will be a preference.
If you are a competitive person I suggest you watch MMA. It is pretty brutal, but it is very pure. Some fighters are technical and their attacks are surgical in nature, well thought out, in and out, strike and retreat out of harms way, others rely on ground and pound, and others prefer submission tactics.
As drivers we all bring certain personalities and characteristics to this game we play in James, and the sensible fighter/driver chooses his weapons to favor his strengths and weaknesses. I have no idea what your strengths are, but I certainly know what mine are and I have chosen my weapon accordingly.
So I call BULLSHIT on you James. Do your homework, Put in the time. Stop whining. Make it happen, Show us what you got
