  1. 120 Photos & Video from SHIFT S3CTOR Airstrip Attack

    Shift Sector 5 hit off with a blast! Coalinga, CA, April 19, 2014: EAS/ESS is back to sponsor Shift S3ctor's 5th event at Coalinga Municipal Airport. 1/2 mile, side by side racing event and trap speed competition make for a grueling match between horsepower, vehicle configuration and driver skill.

    This being EAS's 2nd time competing, we had a bit of experience from last year's event in October in the race for achieving even higher trap times. The car had to follow the same rules: it must be be driven to and from the event and retain street form (only backseat was removed). No trailer queens. With last year's trap speeds in the mid 150s, our goal was set. Plenty of competition was present from 1000+hp GTRs, 997s, Ford GTs, TT Gallardos, you name it. Even a Fiat 500 came to join the fun. Gusty headwinds of about 40+ MPH were coming in mid-afternoon.

    Then about mid-afternoon, our 2011 ESS VT2-625 M3 was able to pull a 162.2206 MPH time, already beating our best from last year. With DLSJ5's VT3-750 cracking a 174.12 MPH trap, a couple of records were set from ESS Supercharged M3s at the same event

    This past Saturday we hosted a Dyno Day for all the speed lovers at SHIFT S3CTOR. Showcasing some of the most ridiculously powerful cars in the country, SHIFT S3CTOR is popular for their 1/2 Mile Airstrip Attack events (watch our video of the most recent event). On Saturday we were able to dyno 20 cars from the varied turnout; a majority of which put down over 500whp.

  3. VT2-625 M3 on our Dynojet

    M3Post member Longboarder is no stranger to our Dynojet. Beginning with a stock M3 and arriving with a supercharged, catless and methanol injected set-up, we've seen this Alpine White E92 on our dyno for almost every stage of the process. Over the past months this M3 has been transformed into a beast measuring in at 557whp and 364wtq SAE; thats 210whp and 109wq over stock! Be sure to watch Longboarder's video of this car performing at the most recent Shift S3ctor Airstrip Attack.

  4. Shift S3ctor Airstrip Attack Photos & Video

    This past weekend we took our supercharged M3 and supercharged Z4M out to New Coalinga Municipal Airport for the Shift S3ctor Airstrip Attack. The two day event consisted of ½ mile side-by-side racing and trap speed competition on the closed-down runway. The turnout was phenomenal, ranging from several supercharged M3s, tuned AMGs, 1500whp Gallardos, 1300whp Ford GTs, 1000+whp GT-Rs, Ferrari F430s, an Aventador and many, many more modified cars. While our Z4M & M3 were consistently able to record speeds in the mid 140s and mid 150s respectively, the real show stopper was a black Underground Racing twin-turbo Gallardo, which recorded an astonishing 224mph. Finishing off the weekend was a truly unique (and entertaining) race between a food truck, fire engine, tow truck and even an RV pulling a 3-car trailer. As always, we took plenty of photos to share with everyone who wasn't lucky enough to attend. Enjoy.

  5. Streets of Willow Shift Sector Track Day Photos (1-21-12)

    We drove our VF620 M3 and our Z4M Coupe out to Willow Springs on Saturday to have some fun with Shift Sector Track Days. The weather forecast predicted "sheets" of rain for the entire day; luckily they were wrong! Joining us was our driver of choice, Jordan Yost, who put in lap after merciless lap in our M3 for some cool footage (coming soon!). Check out the turnout of cars that showed up, including a ZR1, an SLS and a widebody 335i.
