Why hate on this product when HPF has not provided a single third party dyno or run on their single. Because its selective hating. No offense HPF keep working.

I'm simply saying back off period. I have more money and skin in this game than most and would like the time to resolve my Trans bull before people keep talking trash.
I can't speak for everyone, but I'm not talking any trash. Runs were made, videos were (presumably) made, why haven't they been released? Its my understanding that captain insano and shiv both made many runs - were these not video'd? Whats the big deal?

You guys having the trans issues, that sucks and hope you get it resolved. No worries dude.

You need to get into the TCU. Unfortunately, nobody credible has anything yet. I've been saying this even before the single turbo was released. I am one of the "lucky" ones that hasn't crapped out in 5th, but then again I'm "only" on RB turbos. An aux tranny cooler may help subside your issues, but that's beyond what I'm willing to do. Best of luck getting that resolved.
Myst I and others with me are determined to get it resolved for the good of all the 6AT guys. Thanks.

Can't speak for Captain Insano he probably has his videos somewhere and is a very straight up cool guy. But Shiv has been out sick and only ran one real race at the event. He spent the majority of his time working on the 3 single 6AT's.

Very much this. Shiv was working his ass off for us. This was a perfect opportunity to test it in a safe real world scenario, and he utilized that opportunity instead of leaving us hanging so he could race his own for fun.

No videos, no drag times, what's up? I sure as hell have been enjoying the good weather and I'm still in stock twins. Also, weekly posts are no more. It just seems very odd.

I plan to buy a kit, but what I value most is you all's personal accounts/results. Godspeed.

From what I gather, there are two issues here:

1. A majority of the ST vehicles were not operating in a state that was considered acceptable, with the transmissions being the biggest problem.

2. The expectations from people looking for results were not aligned with the expectations for the ST participants. Seems that the participants were there to shake down their setup vs. race.

Personally, if I didn't feel my car was running within the realm of "normal" I wouldn't be excited to race it.

Doesn't Shift s3ctor do their own video taping of the event? I'd guess they would produce DVDs like most other similar events.

To clarify, it was only the automatics. To clarify further, mine was actually pretty solid the whole time until my very last run. My only issue was I felt I was losing a bit during shifts, and I wanted to try out one of the changes Shiv came up with on the spot. Unfortunately that's when I had my issue in 5th gear, although that could have been a fluke, temp related or related to the change. It's not that I wasn't "excited", I didn't want to risk it. I had a very fun weekend up to that point, and decided it was time to call it.

Right, because the 8 or 10 single kits which have actually been installed and proven to put down numbers doesn't speak any volumes. The 10 second quarter mile and sub 6.5 second 60-130 doesn't speak any volumes. The countless videos of people taking in rides in single turbo cars, with a huge smile and saying "oh shit", doesn't speak any volumes.

You say "lack of info", and yet we've been completely and 100% up front about the event. Like SIKH said, we're trying to push this platform and a lot of you are being very critical. No, we didn't have 100% success at the airstrip, as said numerous times, but how many of you have actually gone 150-160 mph in your car? And on the street, it has been nothing short of amazing. I'd also like to remind everyone that the singles are NOT the only ones having the 6AT issue.

As soon as my car is complete (only a few things to work out), I will post 1/4 mi times, 60-130 passes, and races against stock Z06, low 10s GTR, 700+whp Shelby GT500 and some other cars.

I can tell you at 22psi, the car would have destroyed my car with FBO+meth on stock turbos.

There is one 10 sec slip and its in the hands of the creator, no end user has even posted one 11 second 12 second or 18 second slip that i know of. Who did a sub 6.5 60-130 outside of shiv? Who has posted a sub 20 sec 60-130 outside of shiv? and the retarded in car videos are a gimmick to sell the product.. how about an in car video with another car next to the car .... none of the examples you posted speak "volumes" ; by any means at all...

It's pretty clear in the first video that the M3 got the jump and the 335i was reeling him in pretty hard at the end.

Additionally other non ST N54 6AT's having 5th gear issues had no problems posting their movies & even dropping boost to stay on the track. Its always run what you brung, the good with the not so good.

After all the pre race hype there is nothing much to show for it but excuses.

Here's an idea, you could buy the kit and go to the track with it, record as many quarter mile runs as you want, back then up on vbox, go so some 60-130's back that up with vbox, shoot a bunch of videos of you racing friends and other high horsepower cars. Until then, you will just have to wait until someone who is generous enough to do so with their time posts said things, complain all you want, but I'm sure the guys who have actually purchased the kit are having a lot of fun in their cars.

It's one thing to ask for something, it's another thing to demand or complain the lack of something that doesn't even need to be produced by the end user in the first place.

Yeah it is helpful for the community, and would speak worlds, but people really need to calm down. If you're so anxious, just go buy the kit, stop the whining.

No where does it state that any owner of a single turbo kit must oblige to every request found on the Internet.

Maybe we want to buy the kit, but just want to see proof of performance first. Dropping 10k on a ST kit based on a vendors results is, well, not a very smart move in my opinion, especially given that vendors shady past.
