    Sounds like he didn't use launch control. Street tires is a waste of time at the strip for the M3.

    Like he lowered one of the shift settings or set it to MDM.

    It's hard to use at the beams and hard on the car. I'm like the only guy who used it repeatedly on the strip.

    Atco was a great time! My times were $#@!ty, but mph was ok for tune/gas only. Best trap was 111, best et was 13.0. Like LM said, hooking was an issue best 60' was 2.1 all others were 2.3-2.6. I usually cut 1.9's on street tires, but that was not happening yesterday.

    hey i was the m3 i didnt use launch control today at the track since i barely could get traction out of the gate.My summer tires with not much thread no good in this cold weather. my best run was 110.0 at 13.6. all my 60 foot time were around 2.6 or higher. i was just trying to get some kind of numbers in the quarter mile before the sc setup. thank LM for the invite and great seeing everyone who came out nice meeting you and glad that none of our cars caught on fire.

    I was still in the staging lanes when you guys left, trying to get one last run in after they cleaned the track up. They finally got things up and running again, and just as they called the street cars up to run, someone else blew up. They just made us turn around in the staging lanes and go home at that point. I waited a freaking hour and a half to get one last run in, all for nothing! Still glad all of the bimmers (and mercs) held up well, though.

    I couldn't see. I was literally in my car moving forward when the line just stopped. I think it was one of the very last "race" cars that ran. It happened right as they started staging the street cars Click here to enlarge

    LOL, i didnt know you were in the lanes, i never saw you. I thought you took off before the rest of us. once the first guy blew, i pulled out and swapped tires back, no way, i know how that goes, just like you said, you wait and wait, and then someone else in front of you breaks and your done anyway..
