Blown_xA vs xBgod

Some may know xBgod (Aras), from this forum of others. Those of you who do know him, know he is about being in the spotlight. There is no denying that he has a great build, however... he tends to make it seem nobody is on his level. He throws $ figures around to make others feel inferior.

Aras posted his dyno video, claiming that we (Ptuning) no longer had the fastest 1nzfe. He posted this, on my boss' FB page. I responded simply, a dyno run does not prove you have the fastest 1nzfe. A short summary of the conversation ; blood and sweat vs $. 120 debating comments later, I proposed a race for pinks. I presented the ultimate spotlight, and he has not responded since. I will allow until tomorrow morning for him to respond, and will surely post outcome here.

Well done. What number is he currently claiming?

Link to Facebook?

Awesome.

"1/4 mile. That's what we do."

What happened to the 650 @ 30psi claim?

Just so I know... If Aras registers a new account to post on this thread (which is only a matter of time IMO), should I let him answer or just straight ban him?

I get confused as to what we should expect from this thread (or others like it).

power is useless if you can't get grip or have so much wind resistance/drag that you can't get up to speed.

A permanent ban is a permanent ban. It's not fair to let him on just to be entertained, knowing he's going to get banned again anyway. Even I wouldn't think that appropriate.

If you want to have a pissing match, or just a chuckle at his claims, you can do that on his website or FB page we dont need him back here.

I understand that. Im trying to put him in a position to where he wouldn't want to post anywhere, ever again.

I'm glad common sense has prevailed. I'm nipping this in the bud right now.
