Looking for M3s for Drag Race @ Palm Beach International Raceway (vs 2011 B8 S4 & ISF

Hi guys I would love to get a stock M3 or a slightly tuned one for few runs @ the Palm Beach Raceway. It would be Wednesday and will be scheduled based on mine and whoever is interested schedule and availability.
I would like to keep this very civil and friendly. I have a Stage 2+ B8 S4 and I simply want to see where it stacks up with the always great M3. I also have a good friend with 2013 ISF

For those of you who are interested we can schedule a photo-shoot with the cars as well. You can find samples of my work HERE

Hope to see few of you interested.

Thanks in advance!

Give me a month or so...just got another M3 and it needs to be broken in. Well...I'll probably have different exhaust but otherwise stock. Used to go to the strip a lot with my M3.

Size:  147.9 KBHaven't raced in a while but, I beat 3 different ISF's last time out and I ran 12.25-12.6 consistantly all day for about 18-20 runs. Never lost once. I don't know if I can make it this Wed(I'm in Miami) but, I'll run with you if I can come up. I'll have to see. I will be in Palm Beach for the Supercar Weekend with our crew from Strasse Forged on Sunday. If you are around, stop by. Like I said, love to run your S4.

Well we have not scheduled time yet. If more people are interested I will let everyone know here when we actually meet etc. I have been in lower 12s with my B8 so I would love to see how close it will be.

Now Don't get me wrong I expect the B8 although it is stage 2+ to still loose ... I just want to see how close it would be and if the last mods remaining on the market would make a difference. etc.

Not sure what a stage 2 includes, but I would think a modded B8 would walk a stock M3?

That is what everyone on Azine thinks as well, I however am not convinced at all.
Stage 2 includes ECU , intake, exhaust, cooling system, pulley, lightweight wheels and rotors and few other things. And I still think it wont be enough which is why I want try this in a civilized way.

Awesome,

-Take a 5 day Vacation on/from MAY 15-MAY 20th,

- Link up with Camilla Abivero From Orlando,

- and bring that 3.0 To MFest VII "The SuperShow" and play with us ALL on the track, 1/4 Drag & Maybe a 1-mile-side-by-side-Airstrip Race all in a 3 day weekend in VEGAS!!!!!

it will be unbelievably unforgettable!

As many BMW enthusiast as there are in the state of FLORIDA, Camilla drives one of her modified BMW's with her hubby & maybe two or three other enthusiast all the way from ORLANDO to VEGAS three years in a row!

I think more Florida forum members need to step it up and rep along with her!

anyway, sorry I'm NOT trying to thread jack
