    South African 9.02sec BMW E30

    Car is built by Budler Motorsport. Its the first time out so these runs can be considered shake down runs. The car is powered by a S38 motor from the E28 M5. Its has a manual gearbox. I am reckon we going to see mid 8's from this baby.

    That bouncy sound is exactly that. The track become bumpy towards the end and the car bounces hence the noise like that.

    Excellent video! What a strong engine, I'm guessing they started with the 3.5 liter version? (B 35)


    I can't wait to have a single digit car.

    Quite correct, I created the front page article.

    I went by our own 1/4 mile list and I apologize if that was inaccurate. This is a dedicated drag car, correct? That does bear mentioning.

    What 7 second BMW's are there? Seems we are going to have to make a distinction here but the time was quicker and faster than the fastest E30 we have on our list.

    I think there are a few Swedish monsters in E30, E36 and E34 shape that are in the eights if I am not mistaken and there are two 7's second E36's in Australia which are not BMW powered.
    This car is a run of the mill E30 Chasis with a big motor and solid diff conversion. Its still a manual which makes a big difference at that time bracket.

    i think if you're going to start including drag cars to the 1/4th times there has to be a separate list for drag cars. what qualifies a street car is that you can drive it to the track, then drive it home after you're done.

    There are 7 second E36's that are BMW powered. Here is one for example:

    The top video is also a dedicated drag car from what I can see.

    Yes it is, hence why I will not add it to the list.

    I think we have a clear distinction now. The top entry though is becoming what could be considered a drag car though.

    Quick update. New times achieved on the 24th of September, 2010. What I have failed to mention is these times are being run at 5500ft altitude.

    8.8 @ 156.79mph still manual running a Toyota box hehe.

    isnt that the same story with any car that runs low 8s? Its not the same car, hence why i dont give a $#@! about the make of cars that run 8's, i just respect the 8s...

    Those supras running 7s and $#@!, use powerglides and so does every other drag car. RARELY do you see a 7 second car on manual trans, and much respect to them. But those cars once start dipping into the 8s are no longer "enter make here".

    Think about it, ford makes the best rear ends, GM makes the best automatics and every other car company makes the best engine (choose your preference) so what you end up with is a 7 second car thats a concoction of the best parts of every car company on this planet (the purists stay away from this type of activity due to their own accord).
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Not really - a bunch of TRD toyotas running 8's. Bunch of 9.1x BMW's. Its just more interesting. Sure, a fast car is a fast car, but if you go to a track day and rip 4.20's and call your car the "fastest M3 in the world" but its a rail with a roundel on the end of it.....

    yea if you wanna get nit picky there are 4 bangers running 8s with manual transmissions, but compare that to the number of generic V8 powerglide ford rear end cars and i bet its 100 to 1. Point is, you can easily run 8s by going the bastard route (cheaper and more well known) or you can stay 'true' to your brand and run 8s for 3x cost and whatever prestige you get from it. Its preference, I prefer to run 8s, not jerk off to roundels.

    I don't care about roundels or blue circles. If a Ford put in an LS1 I'd say the same thing.

    I am familiar with crossbreeds, my friend has an E30 with an Viper/C4 vette rear. If it were an 8's car it'd be an 8's car, but it wouldn't be an 8 second bmw.
