    ET: 11.733s, trap speed 124mph, 335xi sedan AT 2007

    Hi,

    Mods:
    Turbo Dynamics full on stage 2 turbos(both compressor and turbo sides upgraded)
    Wagner IC
    CP-e downpipes
    BMS DCI
    Alpina flash for the Steptronic
    tuned by Dzenno@PTF for 109 race gas, and I thank him for the great job he did.
    stock suspension(non-M).

    Outside temp: ~65F

    stock 18" wheels, the "bmw individual" ones, 14.5kg = 32lbs each Click here to enlarge. Michelin PS 1 RFT on the rears Click here to enlarge. That was by accident. Conti SportContact 3 on the front.
    Nothing removed from the car.

    I raced only once with race gas in the finals in my category, against a 2009 Nissan GT-R with exhaust and tune.
    Before the finals I ran only once, and that was in the qualifying sessions with 100RON pump gas, but with some OTS Cobb map for stock turbos and the car was very slow and looked pretty bad in the logs and it was a risky decision to go in. Not Cobb's fault, of courseClick here to enlarge. I barely managed to qualify with 12.7 Click here to enlarge. After the qualifying session I managed to find some race gas(don't ask why I did not have race gas with me as it is a long storyClick here to enlarge ) and changed the map to one provided by Dzenno@PTF which was looking very very good on the logs before the race. I was very optimistic after seeing the logs.

    1.85s 60ft, which could have been much better. I started in 1st gear, sport mode, of course. but i avoided brake boosting too early and I started with just 2500rpm because of my lack of sync with the semaphore and my lack of experience.
    2.2s 60ft for the GT-R. Aparently, he did not use launch control.

    11.73 for me, 11.92 the GT-R.

    the problem was my lack of experience, and my reaction time that ~1.2s was more than 0.2s slower than his and he beat me and went on to take first place, and I took 3rd place, with 2 GT-Rs on the podium Click here to enlarge.
    i am dissapointed I did not find race gas earlier so I could have done more runs, maybe I could have pulled off 11.5s with better 60ft.

    198.06kmh exit speed for me(~124mph), 200.05 for the GT-R, which shows very good power for a 335xi AT.
    It appears to be the fastest 335xi on dragtimes.com Click here to enlarge.
    i am shooting for lower ET, and I will try to remove the seats, put on some lighter wheels and better tires, and add some meth to the ecuation. and practice some more! Click here to enlarge

    i talked to him after the race. He said that he did not know what was that car from which he could not pull like crazy, because this is what he expected. he did not even know what car make was mine, because he did not even look at his oponent's car.
    My qualifying time was 12.7, and the car looks like an ordinary family car(no M-Sport body kit, stock exhaust..., stock suspension non-M...). Nobody expected a race...
    When the race was over, the comentator announced the GT-R as being the winner without even looking at the times Click here to enlarge)). He said something like "the winner is the GT-R, with let's see... 11.9". After that, to everybody's surprize he read my time and very confused he declared me the winner Click here to enlarge)) Everybody was shouting and applauded the bimmer's win. Only to find out later that I lost on the reaction time Click here to enlarge.
    Nontheless, what a feeling! Click here to enlarge.
    the GT-r could have done better, we have to admit. He did 2.2 60ft which is a shame for the monster he is, even if it is 2009 model with exhaust and tune. I could not believe we had about the same trap speed though Click here to enlarge.
