    • New quickest and fastest USA E46 M3 - Saadracing and ProEFI turbo E46 M3 runs 10.89@141

      Well, here it is, an E46 M3 in the 10's in the United States. To note, an E46 in Sweden did run 10.71 but that was not a strip with NHRA approved timing equipment. Regardless, this is the first true 10 second M3 in the USA with a 10.89@141. Tuning was handled by ProEFI and the hardware was built by Saad Racing. This breaks the record HPF held but we expect this record to be retaken by HPF shortly. Of note, this is a full interior street car.

      Specs:

      Full Interior Daily Driven M3
      Full ProEFI ECU Package on Flex Fuel
      Saad Racing built Engine
      Saad Racing Fuel System
      Saad Racing Ignition System, featuring ProEFI Lightning Coils
      Saad Racing intake manifold
      Saad Racing Turbo System, featuring Precision 67-66 turbocharger
      Tuned by Jason Siebels at ProEFI
      Driven by Saad N. Saad of Saad Racing

        There seems to be a misunderstanding here as people are mentioning a new NHRA approved track?
        Andreas said it was a approved track when he set the record. I don't have any dates though...

Street 2's on the car (left the front runners on). If you don't think the M/T E.T. Street 2 is a street tire...your wrong...I drove to california on a set, with zero concerne, and zero issues. It's a street tire...PERIOD...it's not a hoosier...it's a STREET tire.
        They are a drag radial. DOT approved is technically a street tire but this is a compound designed FOR THE DRAGSTRIP. Nobody ever gets street tires and drag radials confused when they are both mentioned. Why would you run a drag radial if a street tire was good enough?

        You left it ambiguous on purpose but glad we were correct. You should mention drag radials when they are used or else it is misleading.

        I don't know either. This is why I hesitate on European records and tracks not that I discount them.

        It is just easier to say this is the US record for now.

        Doesn't matter now.. they just went 10.54.. so they are now the fastest irregardless. Jason said they feel pretty confident they are a few tweaks away from the 9's.
