Your missing point. The other member does not even have a S class. I can take my own car to the dyno shop and do a before and after run, and post the results, however I am having problems with the traction control. I do not know how to fully disengage the traction system. Even when its off, it still kicks in on the dyno.
The challenge was this.. I have a 2001 S430 with almost 100,000 miles on it. Since the other member was saying he does not think my system gained any power, I am challenging any S430 OR S500 to race me. It is not because I want to say "my car will beat yours" it's just to prove how much power the gained with my system.
Ahem. Actually, you are the one missing the point; whether purposefully or simply as a failure to read what is written I can't tell.
I didn't say "the other member". I said ANY member, obviously with the V8 non-AMG S willing to participate in this experiment.
Second, you taking your car to a shop isn't quite the level of "fairness and independence" that would probably wash with most folks, it certainly wouldn't with me, and particularly so when you are already making excuses about traction control, etc.
Third, if you really want to prove "how much power the gained with my system" [sic] then racing another member doesn't prove anything
. Indeed, challenging people to a race suggests only that you're younger and stupider than most people who own the S class. Moreover, taking your car to the dyno leaves everyone having to take your word about what has or hasn't been done to your car and given the level of defensiveness and doublespeak you've exhibited, several are probably already leaning towards a certain level of distrust.
That's why I proposed using the car of a neutral party, having it dyno'd, then posting the results. Would that or would that not show definitively any changes to horsepower and torque? Of course. That you're so resistant to such a logical
idea (and keep coming back emotionally
to this "let's race" scenario) suggests only a few things, none of which are beneficial to your alleged cause.
I don't have an S and that's because I prefer the E-class, so I have no ax to grind here anyway. All I did was suggest a reasonable test to resolve the issues presented by MarcusF et als., and you're not interested. Just say so, there's no point in rehashing your same argument without saying anything new.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
