I can tell you with either on you will not be going anywhere. If you're launching from first or from a roll be prepared to control the car once you take off.

So I tak it you were comparing the DSC bog down and power cut and application of rear brake as a Wheel spin correct?
yes...

I am running the same size tires out back and I can confirm they will spin in 4th if the tires are cold. If they are warmed up properly they will grab much much better.

DSC must be off, but as Sammy said you need to practice in a safe environment to learn to control all of the power. Safety First!

Yes, please try to get some video's next time as requested by others. Those are some great cars to run against and I think from a rolling start or 60mph it would be an awesome race.

Oh and get some 18" wheels that are lightweight and some better rubber as mentioned in replies to help.

Put all of this together with some practice and you should be running very fast! Be fast and be safe!

Thanks dude I'm ordering

OS Giken Super Lock Limited Slip Differential Unit for E9x M3 (E90/E92 M3)
Part #: BM237-HA.
Applications: 2008 - - (E90 E92 E93)
The limited slip unit on the 2008+ M3 (E90 and E92 chassis) is designed to be a pure street car differential. It's simply not up to the rigors of professional or amateur racing. The OS Giken Super Lock LSD is giant step up in from a stock E90/E92 M3 lsd unit. It's ready for the extreme conditions of racing, offers 100% progressive locking capability, and is able to do this while operating smoothly and quietly. It's use of advanced technologies that make it perfect for both street cars AND pro race cars... and everything in between. We're excited to be carrying the OS Giken LSD unit in our performance catalog, as we've been using them in our own Championship winning E46 M3 race cars.

OS Giken incorporated revolutionary new ideas when developing the their own limited slip diff, utilizing their accumulated racing knowledge and experience and over 4 years of development. Their design uses an unprecedented number of friction plates (up to 28 total!) for better locking force, better engagement/disengagement, and less generated heat. The end result of their efforts is the OS Giken's OS Super Lock LSD which offers incredible durability and reliability on street and track driven BMWs. The use of highest quality materials, precise machining, forged gears and sound engineering makes this LSD durable and reliable enough for road racing performance (which we can personally vouch for!). This is such a great design, in that it can be used in any situation -- whether it's for a street car, or a 100% Professional race car. Zero break-in required. Super smooth and quiet engagement, and 100% progressive locking capability. Professional installation is recommended.

This Limited Slip Differential Unit fits the following BMWs:
2008+ E90 M3 sedan
2008+ E92 M3 coupe
2008+ E93 M3 convertible

Hope this one helps

2nd gear rolling start should be the way to go.. not too keen on the 1st gear standing start.

good luck next time

BAN for lack of vids!

Get some cheap 18's, but some nice sticky DR's on them and use them when you do runs.

Really cant have the video we raced at night time and trust me it was so hard to tape it since I raced on the tollway there are some camera on toll that we need to avoid along with some cops that patrolling. When we raced there was a cop following us we had to get off the toll and make a u-turn to get back on toll again. That cop was still follow and he radio to get more cops when we were driving pass by him.
During day time, don't even think about taking the video, only trying to get thru the traffic is already hard enough in Bangkok.
But will try to find the way next time.
