That was a lot of wheel spin, but he clawed his way back. So what does an FBO E60 put down anyway?

^That was not alot of wheel spin, he spun the top of second into third then hooked dead from there on out.

Dissappointing result, was this the car that put down 600rwhp on the EAS dyno? With 600rwhp it should have absolutely walked away from that bolt on M5.

Another video will be posted of Joe's VF620 against a E46 M3 Turbocharged HPF Stage 1 on E85 making ~680HP, Joe did very well against it. I just got a file this morning of the race, I'll get it to Bimmerpost ASAP. FWIW, Joe was having major traction problems all day, and unlike myself and Adam he did not use MDM to try and control it.

Looks like in this run he spun it badly in 2nd and had to short shift, losing momentum, the HPF vid is a better indication of what his car can do, but like we've all discussed before, and you know this from personal experience Ricky, it's difficult for 6MT to compete with DCT, especially supercharged.

Those tires were looking to grip and was dancing a bit. That was an interesting race.

I raced this same M5 and had better traction with a clean start so hopefully it will get posted up soon and it shows what a supercharged M3 can do vs a NA modded e60 M5.

I spun 2nd and had to let off a little bit. The inside lane had ZERO traction. I was running drag radials with 18psi air and still nothing. My last run I ran a z06 and was in the outside lane and it hooked up well As for the m5 trust me if I had grip I would of walked it no problem.

I agree that traction looked to be a problem, but it seemed to me that the manual really hurt it.

Looking forward to seeing it. I actually tuned that M5 a few days before the event. (The one I tuned has stock wheels and no plate). I also flashed the E60 M5 with SMG III software which is a world of difference over the US spec version.

It definitely looks like the VF car had some traction issues. The E60 M5 usually hooks up perfect.

Here are some pics the customer sent me from the event and a video of him racing a tuned 996TT:

We didn't get to run again, but the only run we did he killed me about 3-5 car lengths because I almost side swiped him.
