    First off, I'm not impressed at all knowing Sacramento raceway is at sea level. Second, with a 1.5 60' should have been in the mid 10s. Third, RB can put the same numbers, not on dyno or 60-130 but very close or the same results in a 1/4 mile. Fourth, this kit is $7500-8500.

    Can someone from the other forum asked Shiv to post a slip without an excuse?

    i honestly think you guys are handicapping the 6mt more than it deserves. Yes, the AT is faster at shifting but the MT isn't impossible to launch and a good driver can get some damn good shift times. My point is that a 650+WHP car shouldn't require the stars to align to crack into the 10 s

    So... 630 WHP or there abouts... car runs an 11 with a trap of 130 at a weight of 32xx lbs. All things considered this is just a $#@!ty platform and people need to realize that this is not a good drag car. It only needed gearing changes, a turbo conversion and full slicks to run against a bolt on z06, lol. Not hating, just telling it how it is... This is far too much effort to get a platform to run low 11s...

    This "new world record" business is hilarious. This guy will have 1000 or so world records shaving .000001's off his run every single time. If that car runs 10.999 I will still consider it an 11's car.

    The 6mt excuse is bull$#@!. Plenty other platforms raping at the track with a manual. Hell I can show you a blown 5.0 manual going 10.2 at 135 with th factory 6 speed.

    As for his 60 you guys are new to this, with that much power a high 1.5 on slicks is nothing special. That thing should be running high 1.4 if the driver and car are on the same page.

    What I'm most curious to see is what would the car run on DR's with the stock 3.08 gearing?

    Is why he fails.



    I am amazed, really I am. If my 3200 lbs mustang had 650 whp it would be running 9s, even in a manual. Granted BMWs arent made for drag racing, fair enough. Whats with the 130 traps then? I did notice him sit in 1st gear bouncing off the limiter, driver error then.

    Don't forget, this car is a mid 10-second car. Theoretically. Maybe. Well, maybe a bit more than maybe. But definitely in theory. Click here to enlarge

    Somehow, every word that comes out of the guy is coated in snake oil.

    I respect the endeavour to try and go single turbo on the platform. But he is such an unpredictable guy that it makes me not care about anything he does. He talks a ton of $#@! that's for sure.

    I know no one will like this but this platfom past the 450 WHP mark is both cost and logic ineffective.

    That is true for the most part, but dont forget we havent really had that many experiences with cars in the 500+ range. Just a handful of people are 500+ and the platform is still young. I think in time it will evolve into greatness.

    Past 450 there are reliability issues in terms of auto tranny guys, traction issues and cost effectiveness issues as well as dd issues where u r much better off by driving a different car unless u have poor logic.

    The N54 doesn't have a live axle and has an automatic that can launch in second gear. Click here to enlarge

    Come on dude we both had manual 135i before, they're a nightmare to launch with big power.

    About hitting the rev limited for 0.8seconds, how do you know he didn't wait just to get his car in speed with the wheels? he could have slipped to redline and waited to match speeds before shifting, right?

    Good post. It is. Ether to ride out the spin then to bog the next gear.

    As much as I like to see other people making big power with their cars, the fact that BMW's are not made for drag racing is apparent over and over with different models over the years. They need way more power to overcome their short comings against other cars in this department. With that said though, they can be pretty quick street cars without much effort, which is all that myself or most owners are really looking for. I hope the single turbo thing goes somewhere when other companies get into the game and give factual results, as well as running the car in normal street trim on drag radials. It's just funny coming from the Evo world, where a 650whp+ car is knocking on the door of running 9's. It's not all the AWD thing either, since after the initial launch difference(.2-.3 seconds maybe), it doesn't account for the ~2 second difference. Like I said though, more power to everyone pushing the platform, but a low 11 second DD is still an awesome car, and more than enough for most people outside of a drag strip(or empty highway).
    Current: 2012 CTS-V - stock for now
    Past: 2009 135i 6MT - JB4, bolt ons, meth, E85

    Explain how you're going to break something when you're putting around in vacuum 99% of the time. It's common sense that stuff is going to break if you continually beat on a car that's making double the factory power output on stock components. I rarely beat on my car actually. I think I spend more time WOT datalogging and dialing stuff in than for my own enjoyment. Click here to enlarge

    Traction wise it's not undrivable by any stretch of the imagination.

    I already budgeted for a trans build anyway so whatever. Click here to enlarge
