    • Excellent drag strip video of IrishAce's record setting BMS tuned 135i vs. C6, CLS55 AMG, C5, Procede 335

      ElevenPointFive compiles footage of a number of my 1/4 mile passes at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, Ontario, Canada. The introduction of the video represents the manufactuers and supporters that have made my success at the track possible while contributing to the endless amounts of fun that I have had with this incredible car. The car is the 3rd quickest and fastest recorded non-nitrous N54 powered BMW on the planet. It has also recorded the quickest and fastest N54 1/4 mile traps and times on any track other than Sacremento Raceway. I hope you enjoy the video.

        Ya no worries, we need a definite rematch Click here to enlarge

        No shame necessary dude, your car is a horse, a sedan trapping 11.9 @ 119-120mph is no friggen joke.

        its a nice video, not my choice of music for the drag scenes though but i guess that's subjective. i look forward to more from you. the car is a rocket for stock turbos, what kind of times/traps do you run with pumpgas? what boost for both?

        My music taste is certainly not for everyone, I love old industrial alternative as I was never really a part of a normal music scene. Thanks for the feedback, it is greatly appreciated.

        My record trap is 12.3 @ 117mph on pump gas, no meth and street tires. I have never executed a pass with pump gas on DRs and meth. Perhaps that is the next test.

        Thanks for the kind words bro.

        People are fearful of launching hard with upgraded turbos for some reason. The psi down low should be fine on the stock drive shafts. With the psi you will be pushing out of the chute, there should be no reason to not stomp on it. I think the upgraded turbos will help with power at top end so you can carry some serious ass speeds.

        I am looking forward to running 10s with them!!

        Nice vid well put together, I just think the music didnt belong there just IMO would rather hear the cars then a dude screaming.

        Thanks, I knew the choice of music would not appeal to all. I will mix it up for the next vid Click here to enlarge

        I'm guessing with one of the go-pro suction cups?

        What is the big deal about the music anyway? Just listened to the vid, music is fine to me.
