New US BMW drag record!!

something for Terry, Shiv, and the rest of the tuners to shoot for in the next 10 years with the N54. Looks like Terry could beat him to the 60ft mark.....

Donovan just ran this at ATCO. When I was watching him at MIR this past weekend, I KNEW that car has 9's in it, now he needs to spend the offseason and install a cage, parachute, and a few other safety devices.

The car has much more in it, he has trouble putting it down, watch the video, he is steering all over the place even at over 140mph just to keep it straight! video is in the link below the timeslip.

Way to go Donovan!!! r:

the car, 100% function over form, love that.

Epic. Though I think the 335i could do that if:
1. Acid dipped panels, weight stripping down to ~2800lbs
2. Bigger Turbos, ~35psi boost
3. Drag slicks
4. Bored/stroked motor, cams, pulleys, (new fuel pump?), etc internal upgrades (pistons)

So yeah, 10 years sounds right.

there are 3 US bmw's now in the 9's, they are up here in the Mid-East/North East. Mike Radowski, Ulysses (card counter) and now Donovan. Fun for me!! See them all at the track rentals I run my car at.

looks a lot like the engine under the hood of your 335, but dirtier, older and a top mounted turbo the size of a frisbee.

I saw this car in person at MIR and it is sick fast. Every time he runs the car it is always fun to watch. Congrats.

nice...thanks for the good news! and this is the first e30 in the 9's, as Mike Radowski and Ulysses both run on e36 platforms IIRC.
