Default Drivin a S/C

When you drive with a supercharger, does the rpms go up high really fast like the turbos?? Or is driving a supercharger easier than turbos.

It doesn't need park distance control, and hates decadence. It is musclepacked, yet lightly wound. It lets you feel the asphalt and get you going with the smallest touch of the pedal. It provokes, seduces, and demands to be driven hard. It looks, sounds, and smells like performance.

is this ur car man?? Good vid. Whats that thing u got there taht turns on red where the stereo goes. How many horses are you pushing on ur ride? What kind of transmission u have, it says swap. What exactly does the strut bar and springs do? Do you ever drop the clutch?? Like rev at 4000rpms and drop the clutch? Well the rpms dont go up as fast as i thought, which is good, that way you wont redline. I think the funniest thing of the whole vid is, you had no gas Does the SC eat alot of gas?

It was an automatic. Now it's a 5 speed. That's what "transmission swap" means.

The red light is a PLX Devices R500 wideband controller and datalogger. The red light was setup as a shift light when I was making the video. Now it's connected to my knock sensors and lights up whenever the knock sensors are active. It has nothing to do with the stereo.

How much hp? I don't know. Between 100 and 300. I haven't dynoed it yet.

Springs - lower the car and stiffen the suspension. Better handling.

Strut bars - Braces the strut/shock towers together to provide more rigidity, better handling.

I try not to drop the clutch at 4k rpm, but I have. The rev-limiter does a good job of stopping over-rev. I hit it sometimes.

i know it has nothing to do with the stereo, but i was wondering why it lighted up. So thats thing it just tells you to change gears? So springs help alot when racing?? lets say just straight, not in turns? how mcuh springs cost?

at that point, he had the tool set to light up when he should shift up. he has since reconfigured it.

stiffer springs (which also tend to be configured for lowering your car) will resist compression, regardless of whether is from a straight-line weight shift from accelerating or braking or from turning into a corner. i would say springs will help the most in track racing and auto-x rather than 1/4 dragging.

If you want a drag car lowering springs don't really do much. If you really want to make you car look like a drag car, get coil-overs, lower the front to the ground and raise the back all the way up. Then lower the compression in the rear. That way when you take off the back squats to put the most weight possible over the rear axle. Then you fit the wide Mickey Thompsons on the rear for maximum traction. To make full use of that though you would need a lot of power.

I go to the strip just for kicks, but a BMW doesn't not thrive at the strip...curves like at a road track are where BMWs do well.

Domestic V-8s own the strip.
