    Active Autowerke S/C M3 Places 1st in Class In One Lap America For The 6th Year!

    Hey everyone,




    The Active Autowerke BMW Supercharged E90 M3 has done it again and claimed first place in its class for the 3rd year in a row at this yearís grueling 5,000 mile Tire Rack One Lap of America. The entire staff at Active Autowerke would like to congratulate Dan & Ben Schaut on claiming another win in their Active Autowerke Supercharged E90 M3.


    Dan's car placed higher in class than the brand new 2013 m6 and came in 14th overall among the fierce Gtr's.


    This truly shows for the performance and durability of our supercharger kit as we came on top of the field for three years in a row without a single problem.


    The Tire Rack One Lap of America is the toughest 8 days of racing in the country, featuring the fastest street legal cars on America's most challenging racetracks. Itís a nearly twenty-four hours a day driving challenge for over 60 teams with competition taking place as time trials on race tracks throughout the country. Although scoring is based on performance at the race tracks, the vehicles and their drivers must survive over 5,000 miles of driving in between. The race has had various formats since the 70ís but has existed in its current for since 1992.


    Did I mention our supercharged cars have came 1st in class 6 Years in a Row?

    Do any cars outfitted with other s/c kits enter this thing, past or present?

    Are those 2 piece rotors? If so how do they compare vs the stockers?

    Also what tire/rubber are you running?

    The car is equipped with a Stoptech BBK with 2 piece rotors. They offer a huge improvement over stock!

    I think he is running Michelin PSS tires this year and I'm not sure on the size.

    Actually we were supposed to race with the ess 625 kit from last yr that we beat but, supposedly it blew up 2 weeks before the race. I don't have any other info on that at the moment.

    Let's say the driver makes a huge difference. I don't believe that AA is just x1000 better.

    I agree that the skill of the driver is important. I think we all know that aftermarket FI systems sometimes aren't the most reliable. This goes to show that this particular kit is quite reliable even during extended periods of hard driving.

    Sure the driver matters but AA setups are consistently winning and that's remarkable.

    I'm not targeting AA. ESS did the same damned thing with their trials by track use when they introduced their kit. IF you looked closer, the guy doing all the beat downs and maintenance...was an employee of ESS. Will a customer have the same level of access to support? I doubt it.

    Not saying that surviving a couple of one laps is a small feat...its definitely a great thing. But implying that AA provides a competitive advantage in one event a year where there is a large variance in the cars in the each particular class is purely marketing. Run a s/c'd BMW in any racing series and it will probably not do very well...or even NASA TTs. Let's disclose what kind of support this car gets from AA. Will every customer get the same level of support? I've found that the good news internet stories aren't always the smooth and easy road that they appear to be.

    My point is...great achievement but don't believe the marketing. The fact that the engine held together...let's say there is a lot more to it than that. My hats off to the drivers. As a certain tire manufacturer says...power is nothing without control. Any moron can show up in car with 1000hp. I witnessed a 650whp HPF M3 create a traffic jam on the track...because he couldn't drive worth $#@!. It takes skill to harness that power (corny, I know!)

    Before I get tagged as an ESS fan boy or anti-AA...I loathe all FI companies equally. Except for Technique Tuning and Evolve...the jury is still out on them.

(EDIT) The funny thing is they guy didn't even represent himself as an employee until the E9X kit hit the market. I do clearly remember on M3post the guy's name never turned green until the kit was selling. But I digress (/EDIT)

    Wait as second.. We had no hand in this race in fact the car hasn't even been to our shop in about two years. The customer just goes out and races with his son while we watch on the website sidelines like everyone else.

    We don't send him a better pulley or anything. If we did you can bet he would be running our new Rotrex system and not the same hks blower he has had for the last 3-4 years.

    This customer does not receive any special treatment, parts,techs,upgrades or sponsorships. Just because others are doing this to generate sales does not mean we do.

    We raced A ESS car last year and beat him due to his manifold blowing off a couple times. He was supposed to run again this year but I heard from a birdie his engine said goodbye.

    I'm not even sure what you're complaining about or why you are being negative. AA has won this event several times and that is a great achievement. To win it takes dedication, support, and of course a quality product.

    Clearly they have the elements down to win year after year. So... what's the issue?

    So once again, what's the problem here? That makes it even more impressive.
