    • New overall BMW E9X M3 1/4 mile boost only record set by Active Autowerke supercharged E90 M3 - 11.2@126

      Congratulations to BimmerBoost member akh23456 and Active Autowerke. Akash's E90 M3 with DCT and the Active Autowerke Stage 2 kit with meth injection set the new quickest boost only 1/4 mile time with a run of 11.2@126. The quickest/fastest overall E9X M3 time was set with nitrous so this is now the quickest run with boost only. Even more incredible is that the record settings runs were done on street tires. 10 second car with drag radials? Certainly a possibility.

        I maintain a list of all the fastest 1/4 mile times and have faster times than you. I think it's the other way around. So funny that the trap speeds don't align with your power claims, wonder why that is...

        Peasant? Hahahahahahahah! That's good, I like that. I better move out of the way for the baller still playing with stock motors and small blowers.

        I have tons of reasons.
        maybe its not but maybe he just needs to dial in his driving skills a bit...i doubt he's putting down 600whp though but i give him the benefit of the doubt and would like to encourage him to dial in his driving if indeed those numbers are correct...i don't know the guy, so all the best from me...

        one other piece of advice, if you don't have one, get a vbox, it'll help A LOT...you can also do some runs on closed roads where there's no traffic and put some doubts to rest...vbox is awesome and I've personally used it to squeeze out 128mph traps out of it at the strip and this is with 100whp less than you're claiming to put down with that car BUT with tons of practice though...my ET can still be better and my Hoosier DRs just arrived..no point in racing, auto-x or dragracing, if you're not running the right equipment...it always shocks me that people try to get some good times on street tires at the drag strip...its NOT where you run street tires!!! Just get the right equipment for the type of racing you're doing and you'll have a great time...don't drag race on street tires (we've all done it, but just don't it or make it a habbit, you're hurting your outcome as well as many drivetrain parts)...don't auto-x on $#@!ty street tires...don't drive in winter on summer tires OR in summer on winter tires...just common sense people, use it

        No thanks dude, unlike IMG I'm not interested in going out on dates or singing songs with you in the car: http://s905.photobucket.com/albums/a...t=54f483a1.mp4

        It is all too fitting for this to happen to you. Especially with how you guys hump the legs of ESS at every chance and put down ANYONE who doesn't agree with your choice. Glad you are finding out slowly your setup isn't all that. Honestly, it's embarrassing. But hey, it's the best you can afford so I understand.

        He isn't. He is not running meth and a street tune. He also is running a smaller blower than the cars that have gone 130+ on boost only. Try explaining this to him though...

        Dzenno what setting do I put the Vbox on for 1/4 mile ?
        I have hit mid 7's 60-130 .
        For the record I'm not saying my car puts down regularly 600whp it does put down 580 - 596 whp

        The dynos in your photobucket account disagree.. as does your trap speed.

        By the way, according to your slips, you were just spinning in the beginning. By the 1/8 you hooked fine as your trap was 94 or so. Click here to enlarge

        You should definitely be faster than that with a 6MT in the 60-130 if you're putting down 580whp...difference from running on a maxed out decline (less than 3% grade) and level road I've seen a difference of about 0.2secs in the 60-130...my car's best with full weight pump gas and meth and 500whp (E90 sedan) was 7.79sec, on a 2.3% decline..my personal best is 7.59secs, same place but with 150lbs weight reduction (passenger seats out)..

        On the vbox, just go into performance mode...first setup your speed intevals for 60-130...but even without setup if you set the vbox to beep at 130mph you can do a run starting at about 50mph, hit it, and let off after the vbox beeps (130mph)...it'll save the run on the SD card and then just use their software to open the file..vbox will also show you (in performance mode) right on the screen, what your 60-130 time was to a closes single decimal but don't take a photo of it and expect it to hold water on these forums as everyone will drill you for not verifying Click here to enlarge its a PITA but since you're participating you'll have to save the thing on the SD card and get someone to verify it...i can do it for you if you send me the .dbn file..

        cheers-

        Your slips clearly show you aren't about to suddenly gain 4 mph without some changes. As long as well all agree you aren't making 600+ whp my point is made. So why BS everyone with those dynos?

        The strip doesn't lie, that is why people wanted you out there. You can't manipulate it.

        Why didn't you post your slips?

        sometimes the strip does lie and screws with traps...ETs are usually fine but trap speeds can be off by as much as 3.5mph..my last outing the traps were 3.5mph slower on the slip then the vbox...2 weeks before that, trap speeds on the slip were 1mph faster than the vbox...this is consistent for each run on that particular day...vbox is the instrument that you know won't $#@! up...the only issue is it doesn't calculate the trap speed (as in an average of the last 66' of the 1/4 mile), it'll just give you the final speed at 1320' but those that hit the drag strip regularly will know how to interpret that and its been said that, if the strip equipment is correct, the slip should read about 1mph slower than the vbox..

        vbox is your friend Click here to enlarge

        Conditions can affect it but unless there is a failure in the equipment it isn't going to suddenly give you 4 MPH.

        Which is why VBOX traps are higher and why we don't accept them as standard.

        Problem is traction in 3rd gear in my 60-130's .
        I'm gonna lower Psi to 25 like I did at the track and do some runs .
        What's good is the street tires have more bite on the street pavement so this will help with traction ..
        Thanks for the input..

        not arguing that, just saying things can vary from one track day to the next..other than test and tune, drag racing is about ETs and that's why a lot of tracks are not crazy about trap speed calcs, or that's how i see it, but they should be close enough

        and they shouldn't be accepted, slips are slips and it should stay that way...however, vbox, given how exact it is, can and totally should be the main tool when dialing in your car/driving skills to reach optimum results from your car...not only for drag racing but even for checking up on your car's performance over time and across different mods...

        "virtual dyno" is another such useful "tool"...no one should consider the numbers from there as exact but it does serve to show that dyno numbers are JUST that, numbers from that particular machine on that day...given pre-post tuning deltas, that's all that matters dyno-wise i.e. was power gained/lost within certain expectations...people use them for peak numbers and bragging rights and that's not the way...

        I said post them here. I'm not reading that nonsense where people are going to sit there and hump each other saying "good job bro" while conveniently overlooking what you said about akash, lostmarine, and the AA kit in general.

        Whatever, I have them I'll post them.

        Of course, they definitely can vary but you aren't going to suddenly pick up 4 mph on the same day in the same conditions. He was claiming he would easily get 4+ mph with better traction. Come on...

        yes they can, easily! Click here to enlarge as a matter of fact, ultimateracing335i (john) who's local to me has an E90 with RB turbos, same mods pretty much as my car...3 weeks ago he ran 12.0@121mph just after dynoing 492whp on the SAME dyno I do all my dynos at...he was on street tires and sucked launching, couldn't burn out and kept spinning through shifts...

        Sticky, you should really ease up on the 6MT guys, getting a great run at the strip with a manual is a work of art, not like brake boosting and monkey stabbing the throttle 1320 feet lol its HARD dude and for those that haven't had enough experience they'll suck at it in the beginning, get miserable results and only after going through hell and back, braking a bunch of drivetrain parts, do they stand a chance...been there, done that!...twice! lol
