    • VAC Motosports breaks the overall E92/E9X M3 1/4 mile record with their VF-Engineering supercharged car - 10.6@129.3

      Here it is ladies and gentlemen, 10 seconds boost only. And not just barely breaking into the 10's but getting close to mid 10's. What changed since the last time out for this car which set the boost only record? Launch control used with Mickey Thompson ET Streets. The 60 foot record was obliterated with the first 1.6x at 1.63. A major improvement over the previous 1.776. For those wondering if launch control is the way to go at the strip, this should be definitive proof.

      This beats the previous record which was set with nitrous. Amazing to see a boost only car do this and what we expected all along out of the M3's, 10 seconds with superchargers. The bar has no been set. Congratulations to VAC Motorsports and VF-Engineering.

        Kind of funny eh?

        All the kits really are capable of this. All it took was launch control on drag radials. It should have been me, I never even got a clean chance at it Click here to enlarge

        I think with your set up, you should easily be lower that mid 10's for sure with those tires.

        We'll never know on the old setup, new one is a different thing.

        Maybe kind of, but regardless I don't intend to play with low boost or with 10's.

        Nice VAC..I knew it was just a matter of time before someone figured out how to get the "right" 60ft using DCT. The near 130 trap is pretty impressive. Can't wait to see results from low compression built motors, built DCT's trans' and NX Click here to enlarge

        Just a matter of getting launch control to work. I always said it was the way to go...
