E90///M3 at ///MFest Dragstrip

SO i was able to go Drag Racing at MFEST this year and PencilGeek was able to get some video as well as log some data from a Video VBOX i had him install on my car.

The video does have a a bit of incorrect information but let me correct that here: i was running Continental track slicks that were 275 series. even with the slicks i wasn't able to get any traction. i did a few good burnouts and still nothing.

from the information compiled and compared to BigLare's information i did slightly better on reaction time and 60ft times but from 330ft onwards, Lare killed me! this is just more reason as to why i should upgrade to stage 2. in due time.

Special thanks to my sponsors at Mastermind NA, Harris@InStyleGraphics, GPR Auto and all my braddahs and sista's at MFEST. see ya'll next year.

here's the video:





and the data:

Decent times... Seems like the strip was wet? Was that the reason for all the slippage?

no it was dry... LVMS is notorious for having terrible traction. apparently they were supposed to repave it a few months back but nothing has come of it.

everyone that night was pretty upset with the track preparation but that was up to the track officials and not anyone from MFEST.
