    Ain't that the truth. Not that I really race on the road these days, but that is especially true in those cases. So many people talk a big game, and have fast cars, but can't drive them worth a $#@!. Nice to see someone who can.

    I have meth on a 535, no cooler. Live at 5500ft as well. Extremely hot in the summer goes into the 90's.

    I consistently run in DA over 6000ft in high temps. I don't have heatsoak & I don't have a cooler. I've run a best of 11.2 @ 127mph, & that was immediately after an 11.4 run with no cool down. Meth is great, works well.

    Hey M&M congrats those times are incredible. The non-intercooled kits I've seen on M3's, M5's and M6's just didn't perform well at ~ 4,000 to 6,000 DA at the Trona event. They were running fairly even with the 400 WHP cars that day. But again, the cars were sitting for a long time waiting to run. I don't know about the M5 and M6, but the M3 didn't have meth.

    What meth kit are you using? Thanks.

    Nice numbers. I'm not well known on this forum as I'm on m3post. I hold the record from what I've seen for non intercooled M3 E9x. I'll share my experiences...

    1. Last fall I ran 11.6 @124 at Atco in a ESS 535 DCT no meth with catless exhaust and stock 19oem tires with NO launch control. Akh2345 and M33 was with me all day. Since then I got serious and added DR's and linelock. That makes a huge difference! I have over 100 runs using LC on my old 535 kit

    2. 60 foot went from 1.9-2.0 to 1.7-1.8, trap increased approx 1-2mph but ETA dropped 3tenths

    3. Tire pressure makes a big difference!

    4. Properly Setup 535 cars can run 11.3-11.4 with DR's at Atco.

    Now Im now running a ESS 625 with aquamist hfs-3 and hope to be in the mid-high tens. I hope to meet some of you this fall ...

    Ive followed your car for a while.

    I think the air played a huge part in your hitting those trap speeds. IIRC your best mph was not with your best ET.
    Correct me if im wrong, but it was a 126 trap with a 2.1-2.2 60' and high 11/low12 ET? was this on racefuel as well?

    also, i recall seeing your videos of running slightly slower mph in warmer weather, it was about where im at now right?
