I can't believe you guys are using MDM at the drag strip. Turn that traction control all the way off, get a solid launch RPM, let the clutch out and modulate the throttle to control wheel spin.

Aren't DRs putting too much stress on the marginal drive shafts? Just wondering.

Warmed up my tires the same way you did, Traction Control off and slam on the accelerator.. you could almost achieve a mini burn out.. small compared to the corvettes running 10s and mustangs running 9s on that day.

Weather was amazing though, 60s... so I think that played a role
You did great man.

Thanks man, always great hanging with you Bro, appreciate your help as well. With traction you would have probably been the fastest BMW there, but it is what it is, time to regroup and do it again. As far as the fastest 1/4 mile time, I think it might be. Just wish the 11.9 was in the cards yesterday.

Looking forward to it Robert.

After all the runs I did, I would say absolutely not.

Me too! My buddy is still working on getting them done. I did so many runs, many of them were VERY BAD, lol, hope those don't wind up in the vids. I have some in car vids, I will get them up soon, unfortunately I don't have my 12.04 run.

Here's a vid of a few passes. The car on the left in the 1st and 2nd vid is my buddies Stage 3 C63, he's on street tires and had trouble hooking up, but finally managed a 12.1 @ 117MPH, the track was actually a little slippery as it rained early that morning.
