When an invite was extended for a private track day at Famoso, we immediately jumped on the opportunity. The M3 is not the best drag platform, but holds its own pretty well. With California having a relatively dry winter, conditions were optimal to expect some pretty good times.

With some traction control issues, we were eventually able to crack a couple of low 11 second runs, almost dipping into the 10s. Best Time/MPH is as follows:

Best 60ft: 1.893
Best 1/4mi: 11.004
Best MPH: 130.40MPH

You read that right, .004 seconds from entering 10-second territory.

Not too shabby for a street driven vehicle, especially seeing that MPHs we were pulling.

The ESS VT2-625 supercharger kits are civil on the street and true-form beasts both on the drag strip and track - a real "wolf in sheep's clothing". We'll get results added to the official 60-130 and 1/4 mile thread shortly.
