Thanks for sharing the video it really does give a sense of what a vt-625 kit will do for the M3.

The 135i was fast!! It seemed like you were surprised he was passing you the way you looked over.

Are there any e9X s/c M3's running e85? I know other cars can make a ton of power with it. Like my last race with that STi with the GT35 turbo upgrade...that car can run on e85 but was on regular pump gas that day. On e85 he would have made 100+ AWHP more and would have smoked me.

Well Terry beats me everytime. But I jumped a little as I thought if I did that, and executed perfect 8,599 RPM shifts, I would stay even with him. It was the best I could do but no luck...that car is just too fast. I'm running him in two weeks at Shift-s3ctor and I will have 2 more psi so I will expect the race to be much closer.

Yeah it was awesome. I would definitely recommend it. I'm out of the country May 4th so I will have to miss the next one but you will have a blast. Glad to hear your car is running well!

Long boarder,
Awesome videos and well done! Would love to attend something like this...hopefully soon on the east coast. I'm new to this so bare with me...how long is the road from beginning to end and how long between the rolling start cones and end cones? What speed/gear did you usually take off at and end at?

Very impressive kills. Of call cars I was most surprised by that 135 and the R8-V10. I really don't think the R8-V10 was stock...but if it was wow! I thought they ran around a 12 1/4 with a bit under 120 trap...

Hey what's up Nik.

This event was exactly half mile from cone to cone. There was plenty of room to get up to speed before cones...mostly we start in 2nd gear anywhere from 40 to 50 mph but it would have been easy to start at higher speeds if wanted. I thought there were some east coast roll on events but I could be wrong.

I didn't ask the R8 owner if it was modded. Like the Lambo, it was naturally aspirated so I was impressed by both.

They can run over 120MPH, all depends on the DA. Longboarder's car did extremely well at the last Shift-S3ctor event in Feb., I'm a bit surprised by the R8 as well, as Adam pulled or ran with cars much faster than the V10 R8 at Shift-S3ctor.

I would have to imagine the R8 was modded but I don't know for sure. The Lambo I ran was heavily modded but still NA and it is basically is the same car/drivetrain as the R8.

See you in a week brotha.

You kicked some ass there! Can't see the speedometer in the video, usually how fast your going from the starting cones to end cones? Thanks for sharing the video.

Thx guys! I should have a new compilation up in about a week as the Shift-S3ctor Coalinga Airstrip Attack is next weekend.

Starting MPH is generally 40-45 on the speedo (a bit less on the VBox) and ending MPH is around 160 on the speed and 152 to 155 on the VBox.

These events are a blast. A lot of cool enthusiats attend. I'd recommend to anyone.

Awesome, simply awesome. I just sold my 535i, I'll be in an E90 M3 in another few months. I can't wait to enjoy the NA V8 for a bit then on the the supercharger. That video did it for me. I'm in Westchester, NY/Southern Connecticut. Finding a 458 to spank shouldnt be too difficult
