    Bikes use a sequential transmission you would not see any shifts because they never let off the gas when shifting.

    that engine bay does look pretty serious. It's just not believable.. no video, no explanation of what is done to the engine specifically, nothing.

    Yeah I usually flat shift when I ride, even when I'm just cruising around lol, but so mert's supposed vbox files show 0-shift pulls? I thought I remember seeing a video of him shifting what looked like a stick although it may have been a sequential box

    Maybe it was in 4th gear and gave it all hell and some N2O to spool the turbos...?

    Certainly possible, he said something about not shifting earlier.

    The car is a 6MT however with SMG paddles to control the boost level... supposedly. Remember, this is mert who we are talking about.

    so what rules out him making the run with a turbo'd bike, or some car with a powerglide, or anything else where the shifts are insignificant on the graph? He's never produced a video where he takes the camera into the car, then points it at the vbox screen, then runs. If he did I know I'd shut my mouth even if others wouldn't.

    That seems to be literally the only way he could produce that graph with his m3. edit: with a serious, serious shot of N2O

    a video has never been required to validate VBox times. it would be nice if he did post one up. but that involves adding a passenger to the car and if hes trying to go from 4.2 to 3.9x - the last thing he wants to do is add weight. at the end of the day - who cares lol.

    No passenger needed, just a camera mount and one continuous video. I'd love for someone to explain to me why a video should not be required to validate any VBox submission.

    Yep, or else how do you prove what car the file is from?

    Additionally, in this instance it is more of a credibility issue.

    the sheer weight of an extra camera would be detrimental to achieving record breaking times.

    mert if you can achieve the time once, you can do it again. is it not fun to go from 60-130? Click here to enlarge this time, have a video camera attached. maybe you wouldn't have to do this if you were more credible. i remember your video run a while back, it even had a g-meter integrated. use that one.

    will do, will make vids.

    m3 feels so scary, even at 120 mph wheels spin and the m3 feels as if it wants to go sideways.

    thats why I back off at 131 mph. Its not stable, its scary.

    The m3 wants to lift off the ground and go sideways at 120 mph. Got logs showing wheel speed differences.

    Remember its not a VHT'ed track, its regular highway.

    Working on traction, if I can cure traction my new 60-130 times will be 3.xx s.

    Just need better traction.

    LoL at 120 mine is just starting to really accelerate. if you think it is not stable on radial tires at 120-130 you would definately have to change your diaper after a 150+mph run on slicks. My car sways so much more then it ever did with short sidewall drag radials. the track that i did my 60-130 on is only treated with vht to about 60 foot mark. after that it is just regular paved road.

    This is what scares me a bit regarding running bias-play tires.

    Boris,

    Thats why I take spare diapers with me.

    Boris, I like the way you work on your bimmer.

    The place where you install the PBOX shows your passion.

    Isnt it weird that E30 Turbo man has a PBOX but none of the E46 M3 turbo guys have one.

    If that is the case, then you are afraid of the strip.
