    Actually guns are not capable of causing violence or death. They are inanimate oblects that are incapable of performing any action without input from a human. We need a law that states it is illegal for any human to kill another without some form of socially acceptable justification. If only such a law(s) existed.

    LOL, your reasoning is flawed and obviously not based on science. My counter is if there were no guns, there would be no gun violence or gun related deaths. Per capita which country in the industrialized world has the most gun deaths. Per captia which country has the most guns...see the correlation? Despite the above I am glad we agree on gun control....extensive background checks.

    Removing the V10 from an Audi R8 and swapping in an LT4 is stupid. It's idiotic. It's moronic. Take your pick. It is a good way to troll for attention though and that is exactly what Strictly Performance Motorsports is doing here as the LT4 is not an upgrade but the exact opposite. First of all, the LT4 utilizes a tiny Eaton TVS1740 which is undersized for the application. The C7 Z06 is well known for heat soak issues and GM themselves ditched the baby blower for a TVS2650 on the C7 ZR1. Maybe they would have an argument using an LT5 which at least approaches the technological superiority offered by the Audi 5.2 V10. The LT5 at least features dual-injection courtesy of both direct and port fuel injection systems. The same as the 5.2 V10. The LT5 does not rev nearly as high though and the OHV single cam design is not nearly as advanced. The V10 heads flow much better up top to boot. That is why the R8 can produce 610 horsepower in naturally aspirated form and makes much more power per pound of boost. If interested in performance, this is what you can get out of the V10: They were making over 3000 horsepower over three years ago. What in the hell do you want an LT4 for? Because you like inferior/cheaper motors with ancient technology? Maybe they just happened to have it laying around? Huracan/R8 drivetrains are running 7's at over 187 miles per hour: What is your LT4 powered R8 going to do other than sit there looking and sounding inferior in comparison? You aren't beating that with an LT4 swap. Ever. Plus to even get close you have to take the supercharger off once again making the LT4 pointless and once again making starting with an LT5 make more sense. The LT5 will need turbos too by the way if it is even going to try to challenge the top Lambo/R8 V10 builds so you might as well put the swap money toward some big twins. Not to mention you will not have to deal with any unforeseen electronic, fitment, or tuning issues. If going for a troll job, well done and mission accomplished.

    FWIW an investigative panel (Public Safety Comission for Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School) voted 13-1 in favor of arming teachers who volunteer and undergo extensive background checks. Florida law allows for this and currently 13 of 67 school districts currently have armed staff members. guns do save lives, it’s an indisputable fact based on science

    You just reinforced the point again...guns are not allowed on planes or in your private schools - you reinforced the answer which is to restrict gun access.

    Doesn't change the point that the first amendment applies whether writing a letter, using a phone, or sending a text. The same goes with the 2nd and muskets and rifles. I never said deport US citizens. Right, armed security fixed the problems so good guys with guns. My private schools had private security with guns. Why don't public schools? I've never seen a place with armed security shot up. Hmm, have you ever noticed banks have armed security? I guess people value money more than children.

    Two very different vehicles here but both impressive in their own way. The F86 X6M is potent thanks to the revised S63TU twin turbo 4.4 liter V8 which makes the 5300 pound Bavarian tank hustle quite impressively. The Golf R does not have much in common with the X6M other than all wheel drive and four doors. By contrast the Volkswagen features a 2.0 liter motor less than half the size but it does have a dual clutch transmission. Do not forget it is carrying almost 1000 less pounds as well. The first run is from a stop and the X6M gets a jump. It is able to hold off the Golf R which appears to inch closer but can not close the gap. From a roll it is closer but the X6M ultimately wins. We live in an era where BMW SUV's are potent roll racing cars. There is a 996 Turbo in the video which appears to be slightly quicker than both although its spec is unknown.

    Dynolabs ApS in Denmark recently tuned a BMW 340i F31 wagon. They did a custom dyno tune on their Dynojet and picked up very nice gains over the baseline of 326 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque at the crank. Keep in mind this Dynojet is corrected to clutch/crank output and reading torque in Newton meters: Notice the power curve keeps rising toward redline which is not something you see with tune only N54/N55 motors. The B58 definitely has a smoother power curve. Dynolabs picked up 122 horsepower and 93 lb-ft of torque with their Stage 2 tune on pump fuel with a downpipe and air filter. It will be interesting to see how the new B58B30O1 or B58TU compares tune only.

    The C8 testers apparently have developed some electrical issues. This is why you have test cars, right? GM is redesigning the electrical system which could not support the load of the various components. This means a delay of at least 6 months. The car could be pushed back until the 2021 model year but GM is still targeting a 2020 model year launch. At least GM is correcting the problem unlike the C7 Z06 cooling issues which popped up in production models. Source

    Like having a custom tune for race gas or ethanol but hate the idea of being stuck in a situation where you run out of the fuel you are tuned for? Well, finally the Dimsport handheld is available for the F and G chassis BMW's as well as turbo Mercedes motors. That means you can flash in theory a 91 octane map, a 93 octane map, a race gas gas map, etc. A quality tuner carrying Dimsport such as Kevin at Labworx (@kbaldi29) can get you set up with a MyGenius. BoostAddict also hears handhelds for the Porsche 991.2 are nearing release.
