    Cadillac, please make up your mind already. We all know classic Cadillac names like Eldorado and DeVille. Something in the 2000's happened and Cadillac abandoned their classic naming scheme for a three letter based and now alphanumeric based scheme. You saw the CTS, STS, and ATS which recently gave way to the CT4, CT5, and CT6. What happened? BMW, Audi, and Mercedes are what happened. Cadillac tried to copy the German brands and it didn't work. Cadillac just could not settle on their own identity. They are now trying to go back and it makes you wonder who is making decisions over there. How is Cadillac supposed to succeed when nobody can even recall what cars they are making as the names change every other year? The only model we can really count on as serving any sort of foundation is the Escalade. No wonder it is the vehicle most people think of when they hear Cadillac.

    GAD Motors does some fine work and has some of the fastest tuned AMG's in the world. It is somewhat difficult to get info in the US about their product range but there is absolutely no denying their cars perform with the best in the business. Here is an example of the difference between a bespoke GAD Stage 'VIP' which essentially means big money spent compared to a bolt on AMG GT S which no slouch from a roll. It is hard to even consider this a race. Do not blink or you will miss it.

    You likely saw this release over a year ago from Unitronic. All the data still applies and of course the EVO 3-inch 2.5 TFSI EVO/DAZA EA855 inlet makes a large difference in efficiency. The part is no longer limited to LHD (left hand drive) models and Unitronic released the RHD (right hand drive) version. FEATURES FEATURES: +18 HP / + 8 LB-FT TQ on Unitronic MAHA LPS3000 dyno +13 WHP on Land and Sea dyno (courtesy Iroz Motorsport) 12% increase in flow Aircraft grade cast Aluminum construction Fully integrated PCV recirculation artery OEM PCV functionality for adequate crankcase ventilation CNC-machined mounting flanges, inlet and outlets Smooth airflow transitions Direct bolt-on fitment Compatible with Unitronic 3 Carbon Fiber Intake System, OEM/stock intake, and many aftermarket intake systems Dyno and flow bench proven power, torque, and airflow gains This is a proven area to improve airflow on the 2.5 TFSI EVO motor and a straightforward upgrade.

    Take note automakers, this is cool. Not only is it an interesting way to generate revenue it allows fans to get parts that have real motorsport history and were raced. Ducati in 2020 will be selling signed and authenticated Moto GP parts. Imagine for a moment if you could get a piston or connecting rod from a Le Mans race car or perhaps a crankshaft used in a GP winning Formula 1 car. All coming to you in a display case with the part's history and with a signed certificate of authenticity. Well, Ducati is going to kick off their memorabilia project with camshafts, connecting rods, pistons, and crankshafts. Camshafts The lobes are responsible for guiding the valve during the opening and closing movements. The great accuracy that controls the valve position allows the application of extreme lifting profiles that enable the high performance of these engines. The maximum accelerations to which suction crews are subjected are 32,000 m/s2 (metres per second squared), while the maximum accelerations to which exhaust crews are subjected are 25,000 m/s2 (metres per second squared). Component subject to oxidation over time. To maintain its appearance, we recommend regular lubrication. Crankshaft During operation the crankshaft has to perform at speeds over 17,000 rpm. The angle between the two crank throws is 70, geometry used later in the Desmosedici Stradale engine of the Panigale V4. Component subject to oxidation over time. To maintain its appearance, we recommend regular lubrication. Con-rod The connecting rod is subjected to tensile loads of up to 2,500 kgf and compression loads of over 4,000 kgf. Each con-rod weighs 202 g and plays a key role in obtaining high levels of engine performance. Pistone During the race it is subject to pressures exceeding 100 bar inside the combustion chamber, moving at an average speed of over 27.5 m/s. The piston itself weights 154 g. Component subject to oxidation over time. To maintain its appearance, we recommend regular lubrication. Cool? Absolutely. Want a piece? You will have to wait until Ducati's memorabilia website goes live.

    It is great to see APR offering their software expertise for popular turbo upgrades on the Audi 2.5 TFSI EA855 platform (8V RS3, 8S TT-RS). The two premier hybrid upgrades are from TTE (The Turbo Engineers) and SRM (Silly Rabbit Motorsport). Details below and APR is open to offering tuning software for the new TTE777 2.5 TFSI hybrid as well. APR Stage 3 ECU Upgrades are now available for the 2017-2018 2.5 TFSI EVO as found in the RS3 and TTRS. MY2019 ECUs to follow. This stage is available for multiple setups, and are all designed around using a drop-in turbocharger upgrade. Stage 3 has specific software for the TTE700 and GTX3582 drop-in turbo upgrades. Both require a APR TCU Upgrade, race DP exhaust system, midpipes, 980cc port injectors, turbocharger inlet system, intercooler, and NGK heat range 9 (NGK-R7437-9) spark plugs gapped to 0.024" 0.002" or 0.6mm 0.05mm with a change interval of 10-15,000 mi or 16-24,000 km. The TTE700 requires the included wastegate actuator. The GTX3582 requires the included turbosmart wastegate actuator and MAC 3-port solenoid. A proper 500 LPH+ @ 6 bar LPPF is required to run E85, but the stock LPFP is ok for all other fuels. The TTE700 produces 576-713 HP with 523-536 FT-LBS of torque. the GTX3582 produces 581-740 HP with 511-555 FT-LBS of torque. RHD vehicles without the turbo inlet will experience reduced output. In all cases, torque is kept flat to aid in component longevity. This stage has a optional high and low grip modes designed to reduce wheel spin and aid in 60 FT and 0-60 times depending on surface prep. Additionally this stage is available with optional exhaust crackle modes. The more aggressive modes increase the length, duration, intensity, and operating modes of the exhaust crackle. Aggressive modes are only recommended with testpipes. APR Stage 3 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, 104 AKI and E60-E85 Ethanol in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 102 AKI, 104 AKI, 108 AKI and E60-E85 Ethanol in the Rest of the World. Dynos ALL OTHER DYNOS FOR ALL OTHER OCTANES AT THE WHEELS, CRANK, AND GAIN OVER STOCK HERE Applications 2017-2018 RS3 / TTRS Engines 2.5 TFSI EVO (DAZA) Transmissions S Tronic Octanes 91 AKI / 95 RON 93 AKI / 98 RON 100 AKI / 104 RON 104 AKI / 108 RON 102 RON E60-E85 Requirements: TTE Software - TTE700 Turbo with included wastegate and stock solenoid GTX Software - SRM GTX3582 with included turbosmart wastegate and MAC 3Port Full APR Intake/inlet System w/ correct adapter (Stock turbo inlet with reduced power) APR Intercooler APR Race DP / Race MP 980cc Bosch port injectors A Proper LPFP supporting 500+ LPH @ 6 Bar is required to run Ethanol, but the stock pump can be used on other fuels.

    If thats the case is there antivirus installed? What is the security? Is there encryption? Nothing like ransomware making you pay to drive your car ..One could steal your car with one key stroke with CANBUS

    THats nothing compared to Extreme Tunas speeding up their videos in software and when everyone asked why the engine note was so high they said the engine idled at 6k rpm and redlined at 13k rpm. lol They are such clowns.

    I would think it would be to make remote tuning more convenient. I think this is a great piece of kit. Might have to get rid of the infinity and fuse box on the race car and get one of these.
