    pretty sure we can drop it 500 rpms with the stalk

    so, let me just get the facts clear, you claim to have pioneered a LC technique that noone else has, have run a best of 11.78@116mph?

    please refresh my memory, your HP is what? these runs are on DRs or street tire-what rim and tires? and what was the 60' for your personal best?

    This is what i've been trying to tell him. The 335is in the video had zero bolt ons, compared to BuraQ being FBO running 2mph slower...

    I think the first magical technique BuraQ bestowed on us is just fine Click here to enlarge My buddy with FBO on 93 octane only ran a 12.4@115 on his 3rd attempt with his 335is DCT. With RFTs at that, no sticky NT555s.

    That's me in the vid Click here to enlarge I use the old Buraq method which netted me a 1.825 60 ft on my Run Flat 19" 313 Bridgestone's.

    I can't post a link yet as I'm a NOOB here, but
    If you search e90post "mdyates" you'll see my post the night I did 3 consecutive runs INC video "in car" where you can see the launch technique.

    Not sure if Buraq would share his new launch method with me or not, but my 60 ft is faster on Runflats??? I'll gladly be a test case.

    Yes true....I am after ET not speed traps. My ET was done with less power which gives a good projection of what I will do with PTF.

    Interesting, I did almost the same ET on a Dinan conservative tune with "less power" on RFT, 93 Octane, with just upgraded intercooler.

    I got to make it up to your track next season, at least its better prepared than PBIR. I was hoping that you came down to get a taste of the track here

    Yup you did do a better 60' than I have ever done Click here to enlarge

    On your third attempt ever? Nice. Click here to enlarge

    And he still trapped 7 mph higher than you.

    Nice times man! I knew it was you I just didn't know you were on BB, so that's cool. Definately a solid 60' on RFT's. Regarding the bold, if this is the case what's BuraQ's big secret? If you cut better 60's on RFT and he has basically sticky tires, I don't think he should be holding anything back?

    Traps show how fast your car is, correct? The JB4 car had a better trap speed with zero bolt ons compared you on FBO mods. He is faster. Once bolt ons are added he'll just further pull away.

    Regarding that video, look at the trap difference. He trapped 7mph higher than you. That's huge.

    I find this questionable, since it's a Tune Only (JB4) the car is only boosting between 14-16 psi (Map 1 vs Map Map 7 if Race Gas is being used) & Stock Timing, probably putting the car in the mid-300 WHP area. The car in the video is also on the Stock RFTs vs the Nittos you're using. IIRC, you're boosting closer to 18psi & high 300 WHP (390?), so you're def underperforming.

    Keep in mind, the 335is runs 4 degrees less timing across the board over a regular N54. Map 7 would probably make 20 whp less on the stock tune than a comparable regular N54.

    With that said, flash tune is the only way to go on the 335is.

    Anyway why are we even in this thread? We don't have DCTs. I could care less about this fabled PTF-exclusive launch technique. I just don't like this pompous attitude that his magical "technique" is so good that it's vendor exclusive. Carry on!

    He's FBO with a more aggressive tune vs a conservative Tune, with only FMIC he should have better speed trap, however horrible ET for the mods ?

    Also, that was my "1st" attempt at PBIR with that LC method, not used anymore, after spending 4 months searching for an alternative way to launching the IS.

    I was on map 7 with e85 mix. Looking at my logs, I was around 17-18 psi but tapering to 15 or so at shift points. With updated flash Terry has made it around 11-13 degrees of timing vs my old 8-10. Can't wait to get back to the track, Buraq! Thanks for the recognition on the 60 ft.

    Looking at the time slips, I see Buraq makes up the 330 ft by 1 tenth. I have a bit of wheelspin in 2nd and 3rd that may explain that. Guessing the diff lockdown/tires would help that though

    When the time comes that you are able to run your car at PBIR you will know..

    You got it backwards, see above myates response. He is running BMS flash ie Cobb, and Map 7 much more boost, timing and octane than I was plus he had negative DA

Betas do not always work right the first time out. This is expected, in these situations customer service usually makes or breaks the relationship. I severely hurt Turbomikes stage 2's pushing them well past where I knew I should, but you learn by breaking things. He has bimmerfest next weekend and I didn't want him to drive his car up to our shop with those turbos. So I got our shop truck and trailer and drove to LA this weekend to pick up his car, replace his turbos and get it back to him in time for bimmerfest. All no charge, he understood the nature of beta testing, but this is how you keep customers happy, happy customers make for more happy customers. SSP, just needs to make it right, Sticky, give them a chance to do so. Again IMO.
    How many more chances do they need? What does it take, an invitation? Renting him a private jet? He should already be doing what you did I don't get what the hold up is.

    The M3 has no problem going up or down a bit on RPM. I think I could raise it up to 6200 or lower to 4200.

    Curious as well... Just did the conversions: 65 to 205 kph ~ 40 to 127 mph, video time ~:07 to ~:17 sec. on a car putting down 450Hp/487Tq. I've not followed the 60-130s much, is this <10 second time significant, or is just the lack of slipping the significance?
