what's your 0-60 time? (ess 625)

Hello Guys, I got my ess vt2 625 kit and awron gauge installed at EAS last week. EAS did a great job Tom was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Anyway, i never got a chance to push the car or test out the gauge. So yesterday i took my car out for a little fun. The weather was pretty hot yesterday in San Diego, it was around 85F and i had to turn on my A/C Love san diego weather I was very impress with the 0-60 times (3.5 seconds), and the power delivery of the super charger. I didn't use launch control and i was shifting around 6,000 ~ 7,000 RPM because the car starting to go side way and tire was spinning a little.

I am going to try again this weekend at our local drag race event: http://www.sandiego.gov/qualcomm/eve...acelegal.shtml hope i get a better result in the 0-60 and 1/4 mile time. I wonder if my 0-60 can go in the low or under 3 seconds if i use the launch control and colder weather

It's completely traction dependent.

1SICKM did 2.9 seconds on the VBox with drag radials and a line lock.

My 911 which makes about the same peak power as my M3 did 2.7 seconds (accel G's of 1.22 and 60 ft time of 1.68 seconds) on Saturday at the drag strip (have never taken my M3 to the drags) and I was spinning the tires for the first 20-40 yards. So I'm sure with a perfect launch on heated slicks someone could get a 2.5 with the ESS 625 kit.

On street tires, 3.5 is probably as good as you're gonna get so great job. Although I have no idea how that guage calculates 0-60. The only tool that anyone will believe is a VBox because it provides data on the slope, etc.

What kind of tires are you running??? 3.5 0-60 without launch control is impressive.

hate to continue to belabor this point, but peak power vs peak power isn't a very good comparison tool.

one of the reasons the Pcar turbo is such a beast is because it makes a ton of power at low to high RPMs whereas the m3 is very linear and as such has much less power under the curve than a Porsche turbo.

so although they have similar peak HP, there are key differences.

I personally think that your 0-60 time is really good OP, and most importantly you like your SC kit! quarter mile trap speed is a better indicator of how fast your car is anyway

2.7! Nice. Is your P car AWD?

Absolutely true Mark! But if you can transfer the power to the ground on the M3 with launch control @ 5,500 RPM through heated slicks, then the area under the curve doesn't matter...because the only curve you are talking about is the curve from 5,500 to 8,600 rpm.

I am running on crappy brigestone s04. I bought the rim and tire from the guy on this forum. I did warm up the tire before i tested the 0-60 time.

Vent gauges read off of wheel speed and are not accurate for measuring acceleration times due to wheel slippage. You need a GPS based device like Vbox or Aim to post credible times.

You should be able to drop that 3.5 with more traction i managed a 3.9 0-60 V-box confirmed at the track with a slightly modded DCT M3.

Temp: 61F low humidity
Mods: AFE drop / AFE Scoops / B&B catback / Stoptech trophies which loose weight
Tires & wheels: Apex ARC-8's with Conti slicks 275/35/18
