The octane is around 98RON, so I think thats 93 or 94 in the US equivalent. Stock tyres. We having some issues with belt slippage on the setup we running so the belt basically slips after each gearchange & feels & sounds like the clutch riding but it's actually the belts slipping."
Thanks Rick.

He did 6.4, even with the belt slipping etc. so it's entirely conceivable that Costas did 6.1. Costas has a long history of doing very well 60-130 and he's a respected enthusiast, my job is too check the file for it's validity, and it's valid, most of the people who are bitching about it, have little to no experience with boosted M3's 60-130 or how to read a Vbox file, nor do they seem to understand the below disclaimer whatsoever -

When comparing the below 60-130 and 1/4 mile results, please keep in mind that variances in temperature, humidity, road surface conditions, tire grip, and driver input can all have a measurable impact on the data.
