    Yes, two m3's, but let's keep this on topic. Point being the M3's cost / result looks better at the moment and 10's, mid 10's, are easier.

    If you live your life a 1/4 mile at a time.





    Its obvious that the M3 in this case jumped and was chased down and if they kept going beyond the cone, the M3 would have been looking at tail lights.

    Don't waste my time with ESS-VT2 600 junk and videos where they start at different speeds. And let's just keep the thread on topic.

    Adam's car is basically 100% stock full weight with around 575whp, compared to Shiv's "race car" with 800 (?) whp. I was really surprised it took Shiv that much time to make up the ground. A 200whp+ advantage in a lighter car using NLS to boot should make more of a difference up to 160mph IMHO.

    PS. In terms of "potential" the universal standard is normally engine displacement. So all else being equal the car with larger motor has more potential. But if the goal is simply a low 11 second car the N54 that comes preequipped with boost is the easier and less expensive route. If it's a race to 9s, I would not bet against a supercharged or turbocharged M3.

    I will be thoroughly impressed if someone smokes a FBO, tune and headers Z06 or an Alpha 9 GTR... Using an M3 vs 335i comparo in drag racing is like the special olympics in a way.

    10-4

    The 2,000 WHP Ford GT that was at the event sure as hell didn't make the fastest passes of the day and if the GT raced this M3 it probably would have looked very similar to this vid. Traction at the airstrip was crap and you can see smoke coming from the tires on the 335 when he starts at the first cone. More power usually has and adverse affect on traction, so your right M3's rock!

    Seriously you want to do this?

    You have 2 m3's in the 10's, 1 N54 with a single turbo, first E9x in the 10's was an M3, first e9x to break 130 traps (and 140 traps as well no doubt) was an M3, and the M3 seems to make much more efficient use of its power running quicker ET's with less power than even the OMG so super badass (just on paper) single turbo N54 kits.

    You better believe the M3 will be the first to the 9's as well. It isn't a comparison, you have no argument, stick to the topic. Maybe talk about that fix so you don't get embarrassed by forced induction M3's.

    Lol... a liter extra of displacement, 2 extra cylinders and a much quicker tranny. Now, what is it that we r surprised at? One is also an M car if I may point out... pound for pound the 335i is a clear winner and was never even meant to b a track car but a sport luxury dd.

    I'd trade my car for a M3 with a 625+ anyday ;D

    But I'm just going to stick it out till the new M4 comes out.

    Sick M3....Kind of resembles a 335....oh wait it has a turbo inline 6....Where did that V8 go?

    Don't get your panties in a bunch...I don't dislike M3's but you are very sensitive about the subject.

    So when a manufacturer makes an engine change in a model it's because, um, it's better? Why aren't they racing that inline-6 but instead trying to go to a bigger V8?

    No I just think you don't seem to know much about the subject because it's incredibly one-sided as of right now. I already told you to stick the topic but if you would like to continue by all means. Shouldn't you first figure out how to get your single turbo to stop misfiring before trying to play with faster cars anyway?

    The misfire is solved....I must know a little something if I figured out the "Misfire Mystery" that has been going on for a couple years. Don't even bring up racing bud...I grew up racing shifter karts with Joey Hand and racing M3 PTG cars...What racing experience do you have? Xbox?

    Ohh and a little time in a winged sprint car....let me know when you can pull a wheelie in your M3.

    Not about what is going in the whole of E9X performance though apparently.

    Oh so now you solved it, yet, can't talk about it right? So we get 10 more pages of speculation, awesome.

    You racing shifter carts changes the drivetrain of cars BMW sells or has some kind of relevance to it? Logical.

    I can say from personal experience that the one i know (@BuraQ) is maybe not the "fastest" in our area but right there as one of the quickest running an average 12.0 with very modest launches as of yet on street tires. J.S.
