Let me start off by saying that the Turbo S is one hell of a fast car. The 911 Turbo S runs 0-60 in 2.6 seconds and completes the 1/4 mile in 10.7 @ 129mph right off the showroom floor!
On our first run I was able keep the lead and on the second run he held the lead. It was a matter of who hit the throttle first, so on just supercharger we are a pretty even match from a roll. The video below is our last run and I used a small 50hp shot of nitrous to make sure the BMW got the win. : ...Published on 12-25-2010 04:23 PM
This M3 of mine continues to impress me. The S65 engine and DCT are just amazing! I think the DCT impresses me the most since it's been able to handle every bit of power that I throw at it without slipping.
The cold weather in the Southeast has enabled me to achieve some great 60-130 mph times this week. I'll start with the results of the ESS VT2-600 supercharger only run (no nitrous). 27F / full weight / 93 octane.

Congratulations to BB user MikeWads for raising the bar:
Went out this morning and made a 60-130mph run (Full weight/93 octane). I recently got the ESS DCT software installed and lowered the boost some (for the time being I'm running the 98mm pulley which is around 6psi). I run Borla's full race setup which is catless. My Flip video camera is strapped to the front of the car to give you guys a unique perspective. Enjoy! ...byPublished on 04-20-2010 11:06 PM
Did a few Google searches tonight concerning the G-Power SKIII. Technik kept telling everyone stock compression and 9.5psi, but the below description tells a different story.

I have been installing and tuning this kit over the past week and have hinted that I got a shocker to announce. Well here it is!
*NEW E9x M3 60 -130 mph record* (excluding G-Power's test mule). Achieved using Kroger 93 octane and 19" Bridgestone RE-11s on a 2.3% decline.
