    You guys are fun...

    I fly back tomorrow and hope to get some preliminary runs and testing in this week and next weekend to start providing data on the Xi. Will I get to a track? Highly doubtful with everything else going on, but I'll provide what I can and let each forum shred it or praise it as they want.

    I know the history of the holy war and bad blood and won't be engaging in any of it, just providing data with clear description of the scenario for all tests and current equipment on the car. If it does 10s, has awesome 60-130 times, and proves to be reliable that's great, but if not I'm sure the data will show why and we can all learn and advance the platform.

    Here's hoping my car doesn't blow up in the first week.

    I can understand how people don't provide 1/4 mile times. Not every one is a (drag) strip junkie.

    But 60-130 times should be easy to obtain as that only takes 6 seconds Click here to enlarge

    I agree, but even the latter is too much for the most on this forum. Think about yourself, for example Click here to enlarge

    Hey my car was broke for 4 months and RBs only went in two weeks ago Click here to enlarge

    As soon as that effing winter is gone and roads are dry again I'll take my vbox for some measurements. I'm curious myself how the car now performs!! Butt dyno is happy but I want confirmation with numbers!

    On the 335xi the high 8s wouldn't be disappointing.

    When I had nitrous on my 335xi, I was seeing 60-130 in low 9s on 0% slope with 480awhp. The drivetrain loss is going to make the 60-130 seem slow on the 335xi, just remember the 0-60 should be <3 seconds, so an 10.8-11.0 run @ 125-127 is still a real possibility for 550awhp. At the end of the day it all comes down to weight and power when you've removed traction as a limiting factor.

    RB's perform to those predictions. Like you said, drivetrain loss is going to make a difference so that is yet to be seen. Personally, if I am spending 3X the cost of upgraded twins, it better perform MUCH better.

    I said the N54 ATs will have issues in 2006, when I bought my MT.

    On a side note, does anyone think a day will come when the N54 community is not at each others throat about every freaking thing?

    haha yes and no. Yes because some of it is truly entertaining to read, but no because without this drama we could evolve the platform much further, faster.

    just so we are all on the same page, i hope no one is expecting higher traps, a stronger top end and a better 60-130 out of an XI vehicle because that is absurd... it may get slightly better ETs at a great expense of the differentials, transfer cases and top end... that is all

    actually, the opposite. the drama is what drives participation. w/o pressure from all sides, people would be content with whats currently available. ie vishnu no bms, rbs no vtt stg 3.. arguments incite emotion, emotion creates action, action results in research, and research posted repeats the cycle..

    noone expects higher traps, but a blistering ET better be performed. if you take traction out of it, and man up (woman?) then launch that $#@! like its your job.. because it is. what else is someone going to the drags for if not to be fast? i would "expect" 128 mph traps in an xi though

    what a surprise. shivpost deletes a post basically calling him on BS. i wasnt aware of the cage he had, not anyone has at the dragstrips.. i guess it only happens at private events? yea, i hear the logic.. "lets not do anything outstanding now, so we can come back later.."

    Put it back in your pants little guy. I think a mother of 2, running 11.1s, while letting off in 4th at her FIRST time at the strip is pretty outstanding. With a 6mt no less. I heard you can't even drive a stick. You should hush up now. But please don't. You're funny.
