There is more to a race than just peak figures as the shift speed, gearing, area under the curve, and redline of the M3's work to their advantage on the highway. The following is in the words of Ventura Motorsports and the owner of the 335i:
Had a great time last night meeting some new people in Mexico. It was an impromptu meet so I didn't get to take any footage from my car . We are going to set something up in the next couple of weeks. I'll be ready with mounts and cameras etc.
White e92 M3 6speed Active Autowerke level 3 SC kit
Laguna Seca e92 M3 6speed Gintani Stage 2+
Red e92 M3 DCT Gintani Stage 2+
All M3s are running 91 octane and Meth. I am running e40 blend 100% Meth and Map 7 23 psi.
They are very, very quick. Surprised me more than I thought to be honest. Everytime we started second gear rolls, they would get a good jump and I would play catch up. It would be hard for me to catch up though. 3rd gear rolls though I would move out pretty well, once I hit 4th gear It was over. Everyone seemed to be in the 580-600whp region. I dynoed 627 whp on Map 7 with this trim.
That flatline shift bog @aflatau really really hurts, it's not even funny. I've notice if I switch at 6800 rpm, it does not bog. I will have to do more testing.
First and second race is Second gear roll. Red Vs White M3
Third race is Second gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. Spun pretty hard and once I hit third gear I guess it kicked me into map 4
Fourth race is second gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. I didn't realize I was kicked down to map 4 in this race lol so yea 12 psi run.
Fifth race is third gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. Map 7 23 psi Good run here.
Last race is all of us, second gear roll just for fun lol.
There are more runs and vids from the other guys. I wish I had more to post up. Looked like the level 3 AA kit seemed to be the fastest of them all. In the end, we all had a blast. Nobody cared who's car was the fastest. I can't wait to hang out with these guys again.
