But from 80-240kmh through gears the M3 actually IS a tad faster, just like the vid is showing. 420BHP vs 355BHP I guess. Though the 997GT3 Mk1 drives away from a M3 like a madman with 5BHP less, aerodynamics I guess.



I have no further comments, thank you.

Cheers

You are completely correct.

The M3 has more rwhp which helps it up top. The 911's lower weight and rear weight bias helps it off the line. That is exactly how it is.

Captian Fanboy is guilty of the above bold comment. You would think when you have some of the most well respected members on this forum (Swamp, etc) constantly proving him wrong he would yield. However he is drunk on the fanboy koolaid.

Here comes the C63 attacks.
Etc. is a very well respected member.

is faster through gears than THIS 355BHP car from 80-240kmh:

A1. I'm no automobile engineer but I do know that a car runs stronger after it has been driven for a long time at constant speed.
And I'm actually surprised that the Carrera S is running so strongly. With more km it accumulates, it's engine will become stronger. Until or unless he or she babies it.

A2. Oil change could be an issue but it's not that big a deal. Plus, you haven't gone above the service limit. (1000km still to go)

A3. I think an M3's fuel tank can hold 63 liters of fuel. And you stated that your fuel gauge was showing around 3/4 fuel is left. So that's around 50 liters which = 0.7 kg*50=35kg. Do you think 35kg is going to make a difference?

Anyway, welcome to the forum

I don't know why people are over analyzing this race, the quickest car should have been the new 997C2S with PDK and it won.

That doesnt really prove any point to say a modded 335i will beat a stock M3.

Heres some amusing videos to prove some points whenever I read people comparing a modded car to a stock car...





THIS vid is just funny as hell ...


P.S. I'd still rather keep my M3 over a faster modded 335i just as Im sure the Ferrari owner wouldnt trade his Ferrari for the modded Smart. lol
LOL, most posters on this site take everything too seriously. I was kidding.

This is what's needed to put PDK on top.

The GT3 is closer to 3075 and the 997S is 3131 (manual). The new 911S w/PDK is very close to the speed of the MY2007/8 GT3.
