    • New overall BMW 60-130 record set by a twin turbo E36 M3 - 4.49

      The overall BMW 60-130 record has been broken by a twin turbo E36 M3. Yes, this car belongs to Mert Dastan. Not the most credible source in the BMW world and someone who has accrued a questionable reputation. Therefore, we advice readers to keep these questions of credibility in mind when reviewing the provided details of this run. The car is a Euro spec E36 M3 with twin 68 mm turbos, custom intercoolers, and an 8900 rpm redline. The car was run on C16 at 27 psi. There is no video of the run and the owner admits there is nitrous on the car although claims it was not used.

        Hrrmmmm, and I tend to believe that Mert actually gets a car to go fast, but then again, not many people local to him posting on English forums, so hard to verify.

        I don't speak foreign languages though, so I tend to have difficulty reading them. Generally speaking, I don't want to request this kind of information from someone if I can't even make a vague attempt and speaking their language.

        Spanish I can generally understand, unfortunately, Arabic goes straight past me, much less Turkish.


        And I thought the guy corrected HPF and claimed it was a stage 1...not sure how HPF could be wrong about shipping a motor overseas, but I guess anything is possible.

        I don't speak all the languages of the forums I check either. Google translate is good enough that you can figure out what is going on. That is how I figured out Roman @ ESS lied to me about having an exhaust on his car that supposedly set 600 whp when I found the original Norwegian thread and saw that exhaust was not put on until months after the claim.

        Give google translate a shot, you might be surprised.

        Sticky,

        the weather was real. Test was between Istanbul and Kırklareli, another city.

        We dont test inside of Istanbul. We go out of Istanbul.

        Check this

        http://www.dmi.gov.tr/tahmin/il-ve-i...x?m=KIRKLARELI

        make a search under the city name of Kırkllareli

        It was 91 F, yes, the boardcomputer of M3 shown 91 F. It was noon time.

        Just check.

        According to wikipedia the record high in recorded weather history for Kirklareli is 94 degrees. The average for this month is 73 degrees.

        You are telling me you would drive 4 hours from Istanbull, that was seeing 70 degree temps, to a place at 91 degrees only 3 degrees from it's highest recorded temp in history to try to set record breaking 60-130's?

        This just sounds odd to me.

        4 hours? What?

        It is 90 miles from where I live. Takes 1,5 hours max.

        You cant test inside Istanbul, it is full of traffic. Its like new york.

        Thats why we go out of Istanbul, and each weekend if no rain.

        You can think it was 30 F or 40 F or 22 F. or 44 F.

        Its up to you. When I say it was 91 F it was.

        Its hard for some to believe the records are coming from Turkey, but thats it.

        Check the two vids from my E46 m3.

        I understand leaving the citiy but unless maps.google.com is wrong, from Istanbul to Kirklareli is a 4 hour trip.

        It's 212 kilometers so ok, 131 miles. At 80 mph it could be done in almost one in a half. I still don't understand that large of a temperature variance.

        I have nothing against where the records are coming from, I have something against false info. Not saying it is, but your weather claim of 91 degrees farenheit doesn't agree with any weather stations around and also does make sense that one would go to where it is so hot to run to try to set a record.

        It's a credibility thing and this is the type of claim that leads to skepticism because it just doesn't add up and there is no proof on any weather site of it being that hot, actually of it being far less.

        Yes, I know, we are as unbiased and uncensored as they come.

        I know you are posting video details but we would all like some up to date pictures of both cars.

        Why not just go snap some photos tomorrow? I would like to see more of the E36 in particular actually.

        GG,

        I find your attitude and sense of humor negative.

        Bad news for you: started working harder to improve times.

        Worst news: there are many many many many things that can be done and will be done to improve times.

        I feel so good that there are so many things to be made.
