    Heh, you used the BimmerBoost HD intro. Nice!

    Would you put the slips up for the first and second vid?

    Second run you crushed him. The first run shows the difference quite well as despite him getting you out of the hole you still catch and pass.

    Dual clutch versus Manual - A DCT E92 M3 and a manual E90 M3 race on the 1/4 mile drag strip

    BimmerBoost member LostMarine met up at the ATCO dragstrip in New Jersey for some fun runs and a comparison with a manual M3. The blue E90 is a manual and the black E92 M3 is a DCT. Videos are from inside the E92 M3. Both cars have similar modifications with airfilters, Turner Motorsport test pipes, and mods to the OEM exhaust system. The DCT wins both races easily and the difference is quite large at over half a second and 3+ miles per hour. Videos and slips below.

    I have mine set for the (almost) end of 4th gear (120). I end up hitting this, and get annoyed I don't have a digital speed readout unless I press BC... It's annoying, yet is probably better to get a reminder that I am going straight to jail.

    another note:
    Both are nice cars - I have the "same" (color/trans) e90; looks like DCT is worth what is claimed, egh?

    Esp, if it has been proven to work flawless on other cars with the same kind of technology... Does make a good difference though.

    also keep in mind it was the e90 drivers first time at the strip and he was still figuring out how to launch the car, pretty good for no experience (at one point i think he outlaunched the dct out of the hole).....def room for improvement there as where the DCT car only had a little more in it with better tires

    In the first video he definitely out launched the dct without question. But when its all so simple to just tap a button to upshift, its obvious why he lost.

    Good video nonetheless and nice times

    You mean E90, I had 2.2 E90 had 2.4s.
    But all is traction dependent, hence the easier launches from me. 2.1 was my best
