    Correct, you CAN apply the brake (basically, only hard enough to where the light would come on, any harder and the flag turns off) - but cannot really push the brake pedal any harder than what would...

    IDK about all this... A LOT of people are very upset, think he's a murderer, etc... I am not sure what to say here.

    I have been racing, been to school, etc. - and one of the things not to do is...

    BuraQ, curious if this is a 335is thing; the brake part of the process (holding the brake pedal while engaging LC) - is that only for this car? Is it required?

    I know on my M3, I do not touch the...

    Sorry about that, quickly mis-"read" that... It would be nice for people to do this with headers and such - kinda like a dyno but for flow at pressure. Everything that can be quantified in the car...

    That's a sexy header... I didn't really think how complex headers can get (collectors) when dealing with a 5 or even 6 cylinder bank. Looks like some serious engineering.

    I like the TT-RS, and that motor seems pretty stout. I never see too many on the road, and it's a shame. I think it's an awesome motor and a great car. I like it a lot.

    I think he coined the phrase that almost anyone who has driven an M3 hard would say: "The rear end of the car limited the speed it could go". Porsche is odd with it's engine sitting over the rear,...

    Yeah, I feel ya. I think although the transmission itself is pretty bulletproof, there were some software issues that a lot of people were "told" to get - and I do know of a few people that had the...

    And just to be clear, this is not an attack against you rawad1017 - this is just a /rant on the "manly" transmission remarks that everyone seems to continue even after the age of SMG/DSG. It's...

    No offense, but what you are saying is what's wrong with the world of cars.

    This is the type of thinking that "forces" BMW to create a car with a manual option - just to appease the USA.

    Exactly this...

    I wholeheartedly agree that SMG is superior to the 6 speed box. ESPECIALLY in the S85 powered cars - where the transmission and engine were designed to work "in harmony" as a...

    re: formula 1, yes they were turbo - this is true. I would never say that F1 is behind the times, nearly all the technology we see on streetcars today stems from motorsport, and furthermore from F1....

    Here's an excerpt (sorry, a bit off topic)

    The electric motor does far more than just add extra ultimate power and torque. The instant response of the electric motor provides sharper throttle...

    I understand what you are saying, but it's really not the same. A LOT of guys who race their car will not go FI simply because you cannot balance the chassis with the throttle mid-corner as easily as...

    This += 10000... I REALLY want to love the car, and kinda do - but I just have a feeling that lag is going to kill me in comparison with what I am used to. It's not going to feel like I am driving...

    Two things from me - one, the amount of body roll in the M4 is near-zero... Impressive - very impressive. It's one of the flattest cars I have seen this side of a 911 with PASM. They did a good job...

    What an awesome car... The M3 is an excellent (if not one of the best) cars - but pushing the power curve makes for a near-supercar in my book. Hold onto that thing for as long as you possibly can!

    Beautiful craftsmanship and engineering - and furthermore beautiful car (like the color combo/lowered stance/LED angels). I really need to drive a blown M3 - I am getting the itch after reading more...

    Has anyone ever posted an official ring time for the e9x M3 DCT/DSG? I am curious to see what the difference would be over the course of 13-14 miles. F1 claims that they shifted 60 times over the 3.2...

    Nope. I would murder him (of course, this is just in my dreams - and maybe someone hijacked my keyboard). $#@! this guy - if he doesn't want a job, or doesn't like to work on a car just because "the...

    Good point... I never really thought like that. I had a friend with a high 8s car - trapping insane numbers. Point being, it's (was) a drag car - and was made to launch. Totally different from a good...

    Backing up here though, what bike did you have more trouble with? Guessing the R1 considering mods - was he 100%? That seems like it would be an easier win for him, but maybe not. I have no idea what...
