I can't believe how fast your car is Drew! The VT3 is a fantastic upgrade for anyone wanting 750+ HP daily driver car.

Did you get your manifold issue taken care of?

Wow, I have to think however that the m3 is simply not designed to hold that kind of power. Axles, drive shaft, damn unibody even-Don't get me wrong, one hell of a cool car but maybe if you had that much money why not build a GT3 RS up to 700hp or R8 or something.

94 octane and meth? Redudant no?

Either way, crazy how it leaves the guys standing still. I cringe to see a stock m3 lol. Wouldnt even stay in the same camara shot

What are those fumes coming out of your exhaust on run 2? Mixture too rich?

lol kinda looks that way but it's just the dust on the track. It was very very dusty with lots of little rocks. A couple cars including a 1,000+ HP Gallardo went off the track because they were spinning tires badly at over 100 mph. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

Now that is simply ridiculous and unsafe. A 1000 hp car spinning tires on a dry road, albeit dusty at 100mph? Seriousssly, that kind of stuff should be illegal even at a closed track. Just ridiculous

There were over 300 races, only two cars spun out and went off the track at the very start of their runs, both the car and driver were fine, it was cool out this affected traction quite a bit, if it was warmer it would have been easier to hook up. A few high horsepower RWD cars hit near 200 MPH, with no issues, the track was very safe, there was fire and rescue there, not unlike any properly setup track event.

With this slight build is it still possible to run a meth set up still ?

Very nice numbers. What tires do you run around with? Hows low end traction?

Thank you.

I run RE11's, 285/35/19, they actually hook well, but for the most part, especially this time of year, I have to run MDM to keep the power down.

Drew, how much quicker do you think your car is in S6 compared to MDM? If you ran yourself and you were able to get traction in S6 how far ahead do you think you would get in say a half mile race. Or how about a 60-130? Is MDM really that much slower than S6 with all other variables being equal?

That's a good question, I would say at least a few car lengths, but it all depends on how much mdm reduces power. Having said that it still works pretty well but such is life with rwd and big power.

Dang, I wouldn't have thought it would make that big a difference but I suppose there are so many variables that would come into play that one would be hard pressed to make an accurate all. I'm also assuming the more power a car has the more MDM would try and reign it in as well. Tht would be an interesting comparison if somebody could ever figure that out

I had a Z06 so that really gives me an idea of what kind of go you're talking about. I agree with the comment at the end of the second video. "Damn!" That be mighty quick, congrats on ride.
