It is not hostility toward you at all. I see you are a fairly new member, but a lot of us have been here a long time and hear the same thing. This car is faster than "fill in the blank" to try and sell products. A company about 1 year ago was saying they ran a 11.2 and come to find out they were spraying and were being sued. The history is not good for companies that make outrageous claims that are clearly not true. If they were spraying it is possible, but if not then they were blatantly lying.

There isn't a thread in this subforum that goes without some sort of hostility. Everyone defends their own tunes to their dying breaths, and when they're not beating each other up over that, they're busy ensuring everyone on the web knows that they are smarter than everyone else here. That's just the way this section goes. Once in a while, you'll get some useful information, but it's mostly just apes pissing on eachother and flinging poo against the walls.

Not your most friendly subforum.

I completely understand where you are coming from, I can't say what mods are on the shop car aside from the Stage 3, exhaust & suspension as we didn't pop the hood. I am not trying to say this is a JB/Vishnu/"fill in the blank" slayer, but a different alternative. Let's put any #s aside, as I cannot comfirm any of them. Just trying to let people know about another fun way to enjoy the N54

Come on man, that is rediculous. I have posted tons and tons of threads with useful, factual information. If you are going to make a bold statement that basically is saying LET has the fastest N54 in the world and don't expect skeptics, then you are really not being realistic.

The LET 135i ran a 12.6@115 with the clutch slipping in the lower gears.

The car does not have spray or any other mods that most of you don't have.



I think there was a miscommunication somewhere. Anyone there (30+ people) will tell you the whole parking lot smelled like clutch.

Sorry for any confusion.

Thanks for clearing that up, that must have been the Benz then? Either way, I was wrong. See was that so hard?

I wasn't being specific to you. I know you have posted useful information, but I was letting ChiTown know that this subforums is just that type of place where, once numbers or claims are involved, it can get pretty ugly, for any number of reasons.

I wasn't attacking anyone or anything in particular. I was just informing him that this isn't the warm and fuzzy forum, especially when we start getting into numbers and claims.

Thanks for chiming in Tony! BTW, disregard the other part of the message I left you regarding my tune, it has come back to life now. :-)

Went to the dealer today for some scheduled maintenance. They did a full scope on the car and then gave it back to me. Didn't say a thing about any tune so they either didn't see it, or didn't care (thinking they had no idea it was even there).

I've got the Stage 2 Tune on my car (full review coming soon with dynos) and when I scanned a couple days ago with the BT tool I got the tuner manipulation code (2D25). I've clear it and I'll scan again when I get home to see if it comes back up.

stupid street tires and people in the car with you.
But either way i was semi happy given everyone was running slow that day
