Pretty much anything from a roll, in the right powerband I will. From a dig I have trouble against him tho, or maybe my driving sucks. Never dynoed my car, looking forward to it next season.

I find it much easier to get off the line in his AMG + Traction control. + Auto gearbox, its still much easier to get the jump in the AMG, autobox + wide power band. In the M, the driver have to anticipate the move, the AMG is like jump in and go speed.

I have DCT + Michelin PS2 / He have Michelin PSS

Nope, but we did a three way drag with my other buddy's 2012 ZCP stock M3 + DCT from a dig to like around 140, the C63 got the best launch and stayed there till the end when we ran out of road. The 2012 ZCP was behind me around a cars length and i was less than half a car length behind the C63. I think with a good launch, I would be able to keep up from the dig and pass after 2nd gear.

If it even matters, the 2012 M3 was fully loaded with every option on 19", as is the C63 on 18". My 2009 is bare, not a single option other than DCT and on 18" wheel.

Sounds too expensive. Just go ask your neighbor to borrow their bone stock 2008 335xi auto tranny sedan with no sport suspension, ugly 17' wheels and lots of dents and then PNP the new Procede Flex Fuel chip and then fill up with a tank of e85 gas. With 410+ AWHP, you will doing 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and 1/4 mile in the high 11s with the AC on and whistling to Justin Beiber while the C63 driver is befuddled as to WTF just happened.

Then, send the Procede PNP back to Vishnu for a full refund.

Cost = $50 tank of gas.

the c63 weighs ~4000 pounds. The m3 weighs ~3700 pounds. C63s are quick but they can be beat. Carbon trunk, rear seats taken out, recaros, cat less exhaust, and a tune could take a c63. I beat a c63 in my old car (N55) and that was with only 370whp and 450 wtq with the shittiest power band. Just a couple light weight mods

Just use your key fob to put the top down and they'll want to ride with you.

The M156 is quite an engine, it has big flat torque curve and doesn't mind spinning to redline. Basically the S65s handicap of over 50% displacement is a large one to overcome without increasing displacement of the S65 or adding forced induction.
