16 runs on E46 ZHP, H&R front bar, Konis, and pins out measly -1.2 camber. These were 245/35-18, and this was back in 2006.

Watching the launches in the video was interesting as I'm comparing it to my M5 where you have to really ease it out of the hole, depend on some initial engagement weight transfer and then (depending on tires/grip) modulate the throttle carefully in 1st gear. On A6s in the summertime, I can get it to hook really hard most of the time, but you still have to be careful of losing it and having to back out of the throttle a bunch and blowing the launch.

Still hunting for either just the right 996 GT3 (pretty much given up at this point) or E90 M3 w/o sunroof but heated seats, tech package, etc. Not planning on selling anything else at the moment, but the E46 and S4 are leaving in a couple of months. It's been a heck of a hunt the past three months (5 months on GT3, but I've given up looking for those, plus don't want to have to fool with the damn coolant coupling issues), and I let one 08 E90 with about everything except sunroof, 47k miles, still under factory warranty, etc, slip through my hands at $35k -- surprisingly it had original paint and no damage too. Oh well...

Current Stable:
2011.5 E90 M3 6MT, Silverstone, slicktop
2001 E39 M5 LeMans Blue/Silverstone
2006 E90 330i 6MT Electric Red/black, ZSP
2007 E91 328i Silver/gray, slushbox
