    Nice! I did 168.9mph at NFZ Midwest a few weeks ago. DA was 3335 with 30-50mph headwind and 85*F. How much boost are you running?

    Focus has been on my 135i lately. But I'll get back to the 335i soon.

    Nice!

    How do you like the shorter gears? What size wheel/tires?

    Yup, but I will make an additional video when I install it. Those are just photos from their website!
  6. N54: The Ultimate Charge Pipe & BOV Guide (DIY Video)

    As I begin to increase the boost in my 335i, the first thing I want to address is the charge pipe. The stock plastic charge pipe is prone to cracking and breaking with increased pressure. Since I...

    Ideally, I would. I wanted a quick off-the-shelf bolt-in option so I can get it buttoned up before the last couple of events this year. We'll see how this all holds up. Otherwise I might be forced to...

    Yup, it starts getting a lot easier to drive after break-in.

    This car came with a JB4 installed so I quickly added a bluetooth connect kit. This allowed me to update the very out of date firmware and gives me the ability to log and monitor everything from my...

    Well, I went back to the drag strip the other day. Made a decent shakedown pass, well on my way to setting a personal best.

    FWIW - I never posted this thread claiming this would be the magic solution. It's a completely separate topic from whatever bogging or other launch issues you guys are referring to.

    I posted it to...

    Still perfecting the launch, but I've found the line between bogging, hooking and spinning the tire. I'm getting a custom flash that has 2-step integrated in it that works well instead of the JB4...

    Exactly. Without the front sway bar attached, the front end should lift and allow weight to transfer to the rear. Helps launch, is a widely known trick in other platforms.
  15. General: Removing the Front Sway Bar for Drag Racing?

    Has anyone done this? Did it make a difference?

    Honestly, I can't remember.



    No, what you're hearing won't get any better or worse.



    People have gotten the whole assembly balanced with better results. Some are further off-balance than...

    That's my car, lol. Filmed that before the XClutch twin disc I have in it now.

    What you're hearing is perfectly normal for a twin disc/SMFW. Like someone said above, OEM trans mounts will help a...

    Sounds normal for a twin disc or single mass flywheel, in my experience.

    Slightly off-topic, but how are you running both a XClutch twin disc AND an MFactory SMFW?

  21. General: Weight Difference: BMW 135i vs. 335i (Actual Results)

    After running a 10 second pass in my 135i, I was really curious what it weighed. So, I found a local weigh station and put it on the scale. I even brought my stock BMW 335i to find out the difference...
