    • ESS-VT2 625 supercharged E92 manual M3 takes on the new F10 M5 in a roll on race

      Supercharged M3's are definitely quick cars as seen here. The new F10 M5 is no slouch itself but in stock form it is about a 122 mile per hour trap car whereas the M3 should be in the mid to upper 120's. We do not have dynojet numers for the new F10 M5 yet but we expect it to be somewhere in the 480 wheel horsepower range. This ESS kit should be in the mid to upper 500's depending on pulley the owner ran. Impressive result for the M3 considering it is a 6-speed manual. Less weight plus more power makes for a beatdown.

        my buddy has a 2011 6MT and he beat a 2011 DCT from a roll... both stock E92 Ms. go figure.
        The manual is geared better past 3rd gear where you spend less time shifting. Not really all that hard to understand.

        That is a physical impossibility.

        Its done... The first 3 runs may have not taped. We did 2 more just to be sure.

        That's the best advantage for the DCT right there.
