Haha it was the worst track in the world. There were fully dedicated drag cars with slicks, cages and parachutes but no one could hook up. There was literally mud and debris on the launch pad. No one was cleaning anything.

So my car had a huge advantage. Launch control is optimized to deal with less-than-ideal conditions on the street. Even though I did a piss poor 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds, my 0-100mph was good at 5.9 seconds and I ended up with an 1/8 mile of 6.808 seconds which was even quicker than the time of the 1,000 wheel horsepower built GTR on R888 tires. Ha!

There was only one overall event winner.

There were also separate winners for quickest BMW, Audi and VW.

The guy that won the BMW event was Pr3ci5ion I think. He did a 8.0 seconds from what I remember.

You're not kidding about the track being slippery, I was still spinning my tires across the finish line in a few of my runs.
