Just a comment on the software itself. It doesn't simulate wheel spin (or launch control) very well. But drag is pretty important.

If I were to add 0.32 into the drag variable for the M3, it would give a 13.05 second 1/4 mile run, which we all guess to be too slow.

So just "hacking" the software, you don't enter drag to compensate for the lack of "Launch control" / wheelspin modelling.
