    Modded 135i vs Ram SRT10

    Hey All!
    I know this is my first post on BimmerBoost but I had to share this. The other Bimmer forums seem to discourage telling of race stories but the tread title said all I needed to know "Kill Stories."

    To start with, I do not condone street races. However when rare opportunities present themselves, I wont turn down the offer. Also before any questions or comments are added me, and everyone in these car clubs, ALWAYS keep things safe. If anything ever feels out of place, sketchy or notice something truly dangerous for car or driver, then we will stop and end the activity.

    Last Wednesday night I was at a local car meet in Waco, TX and was asked if I was willing to race this guys Ram SRT10 4-door. After talking for a while I learned he replaced the AT with a 6-speed MT, had nitrous, some engine tuning for the spray, and custom exhaust. I told him what I had: JB4 on Map5 and custom DP back exhaust, that mine's an AT not a MT, and that I would be making around 14-16lbs of boost WoT. He was surprised with the amount of boost and commented that he may actually have to spray. He also said, and I quote, "I eat BMW's and $#@! out Benz's."

    We decided on doing a rolling 30 from 3rd gear on a stretch of highway that has seen many street races for nearly 50yrs. I let him signal all 3 races. For the first few seconds of the first and last race, he had me at his rear bumper that is until I started hitting full boost (about 3300rpm). At that point I started haulin and it was no contest! The first race was the fastest where I hit 140ish mph and had 8-10 car lengths on him. Second race he mis-shifted into 3rd, I smoked him. The 3rd race was like the first accept only hit about 100mph since our exit was approaching fast.

    The end result, BMW 135i: 3; Ram SRT10: 0.

    Friendly races are always great especially when you win! Next time I plan on bringing a passenger to get videos to post. Again this was a rare thing for me, I prefer keeping the racing to the track, but I have only seen a handful of Ram SRT10s and truly wanted to see how I compared to him. Also last Friday, June 3, I raced at Texas Motorplex and had a great time with videos posted soon. I was still losing traction but ran consistent 13.2s with best R/T of .099. Next mod: set of drag tires for the rear.

    Ram SRT-10's are awesome trucks. The QC is a heavy $#@! though, heavier than the already heavy regular cab.

    So he was spraying and you still pulled him?

    Yep, when you use the popup private messaging sometimes they don't show in the sent folder. I will update the program as there is a new version out, that might fix it.

    That literally is the funniest shi7 I have seen in a long time... Good stuff.

    I was in Gatlinburg TN with my g/f a few years back in my e46 M3, and we were driving through Pigeon Forge (it goes ...Highway-->Pigeon Forge-->Gatlinburg-->Smokey Mountains). There are a bunch of guys (using that term very loosely) that drive diesel trucks with stacks - and while we were pulling into town, two of these groups of guys (two separate trucks) decided to come full stop in the middle of the road after me driving behind them while I was getting blasted by their "carbon" smoke. It was about 3 AM - and we just wanted to get to our place to rest; these guys decided to hold me up (I have NO idea how [or if] they knew what I was driving - but I guess the Xenon lights made them excited) - they asked if I wanted to race, said a bunch of crap I didn't understand, etc... I decided it was a very bad place to be, so I opened up the throttle and drove on the "shoulder" (grass/3 feet of gravel) around them. They proceeded to chase me - by the time I was in town (at red light), I noticed they had beer bottles in their hand - and also noticed that there were people around, so I felt a bit "safer". I drove off (semi aggressively) - and they decided to throw a beer bottle. I don't know if they don't take kindly to German cars with "Xenon lights" or what, but they were upset at something. Second light - red and blue lights... One of them (not sure why one) got pulled over. Never found out what happened (not from around that area) - but I am sure open bottles aren't okay even down south. Anyhoo, thought this was a decent story - I 100% agree with baylor1er, need to know the place/driver/car/etc. before taking on a race... People are nuts.

    Interesting story, open bottles are kind of hard to explain away.

    wow...sounds like your standard pickup drivers.

    Surprised you went in 3rd from 30 mph. Should have gone to 2nd you would have really stomped on him.
    Never thought I would see the day...

    I wouldn't underestimate the SRT-10. In stock form they have run 1/4 miles similar to yours.

    I understand that but I have a pretty good idea of CLK550 times as well as SRT-10's. That is a truck with the Viper V10... it's pretty fast.

    They are deep 13 second trucks stock, 108 or so traps, 12 second with bolt on's easy.

    Good kill, he deserved the spanking he got. "I eat BMW's and $#@! out Benz's."

    I'm curious if he was using Nitrous as well. If he sprayed and lost then loool
