• New overall BMW 1/4 mile record set by a turbo E36, 9.05@157 - 8's around the corner

      Congratulations to davidtm5 for his record breaking 1/4 mile run. David has an E36 with a built S52 motor running a giant GTX 42 turbo along with Bavarian Solutions cams. Car has hit in the mid 900's to the wheels (so over 1000 crank horsepower) at about 37 psi. Simply a beast and this was proven with a record setting 9.0 second 1/4 mile run in the middle of the Summer. Records just continue to fall and the bar keeps getting raised. The first 8 second 1/4 mile pass for a street BMW? Just around the corner.

        Helluva accomplishment, no doubt. That said, Sticky: if you consider this a street BMW, what (in your mind) would it take for it to be a race BMW?

        I presume you watched the Youtube video of the walk-around. It is missing one-side headlight assembly, had a huge turbo sticking up through the hood, exhaust exiting the front fender, gutted interior, running slicks, etc. Don't know where this guy lives, but this car isn't even remotely close to street legal, anywhere in the United States.

        Regardless, it's tremendous what he's been able to achieve in his race car - much respect for the quick/fast times, look forward to when it goes 8's.

        To be a race BMW it would need a powerglide, tube chassis, or something to make it a dedicated drag car.

        This is technically the top of the street cars. Sure, the lines are getting blurred, but this is still a built S52 running a manual I believe.

        This isn't enough of a dedicated drag car for you? Agree to disagree there.

        Yes, I believe it's a built stock motor, with an aftermarket/custom F/I system and an aftermarket tranny.

        To me, that has very little to do with whether it's a street car or not. Does it have plates, and is it registered for use on public roads? If so, does it ever get used on them? Does it get driven to the track, swap wheels, race, swap back, and drive home? Or trailered to the track, raced, trailered home and parked/tweaked until the next race day? I don't know the answers to those questions... but (IMHO) they help point to if a car is a dual-purpose street/track car, or a dedicated-purpose, full race car.

        YMMV.

        I habe nhothing against david and love his car and I think je has acheved a lot with it and that it is definately in aleague of its own,but I would have to agree with black bnr32 I thunk david knew what he was getting himself in to when he ditched the bmw tranny and went with a straight cut gear liberty tacing transmissions tko600.

        It's just a non-bmw trans. If we went down that road the same could be said for the internals of the motor, and the turbo kit on the car. Then we would move on to the tuning.Click here to enlarge

        Franklin I didn't see him trying to make it a show car that parks hard. It rapes the drag strip exactly what it was built to do. Sticky here in lies the problem with people like Franklin and 600WHPS4 with mods in this section to put people in time out you get non-stop trolling like we have here. They have said they dislike the look of the car in all their posts, and nothing more.

        The trolls are out, and looking to stir some crap around for no good reason.
