I guess if you call 5.7 60-130's not fast...

Marcus was cutting those consistently after dialing in the car a bit more...and I was either ahead of him or right beside him...

Also my tires were allowing me a bit more top speed than Marcus as his diameter of tire is smaller. Trust me we were plenty fast

I started around 900rwhp.. dialed it back to probably around 700rwhp due to traction issues.

60-130 was 5.67
100-155 was 5.02

Took me roughly 1/4 mil from the first cones to hit my speed limiter with another 1/4 mile of track left.. really bummed I didn't have the speed limiter removed before this but just didn't have time.

COmmanderwiggen won pretty much every race, I think he got beat by a Whipple Supercharged Ford GT but that was his only loss if I recall.

Also, I raced a UGR TT on accident.. needless to say it was the asswhooping of the century.. he jumped a 747 on me at the launch, but once we got to about 100mph I wouldn't say he was pulling on me anymore but I wasn't catching him either. I was running 32lbs of boost on that pass.. but was still spinning tires at 150mph.

He had about 5 car lengths on me before I even touched the go cones lol...not the best start for me but I was catching up top buuuuut he had too much of a jump Either way faaaast car A loss is a loss and I'll take it.

And he was putting down 950whp on low boost...prolly turbo charged and was running hoosier slicks.

both Kenton and I were on 'street' tires.. 19"s.. no drag radials/etc.. Kenton was on wider, taller NT05's.. and I was on little 265/35/19 R888's.. we were in 100% street car trim.. aka matching wheels/tires.. same **** I'd use to drive 2000mi to Florida from here.. 70% of the people there (and all of the big power guys) were running drag radials, or similar.. most on 17's or 18's..

Also.. my car, with cage, and the subs in it weighs (without passengers) 3600.. both Kenton and I made ALL of our passes with passengers.. so my 5.67 60-130 was with subs, a full cage and a passenger.. Kenton was neck n neck and if he had a Vbox I wouldn't doubt he may have had me on the 60-130 even.

My Ride: 900rwhp Turbo M3
Day 2:

Here is a video of me and Mike (Mspired HPF 2.5 6776 Turbo) This was probably my cleanest run of the day as I usually got forced to the inside (right) lane because people didn't like it And in all honesty the inside lane does suck a bit more as it's difficult to brake boost and the pavement overlaps there causing some problems with traction. I do believe Mike said he almost lost it at the start on this run because of wheelspin...you can see the problem is mutual lol.



Other vids that I have were crap...hopefully my passengers upload like they promised

I think thats mikes car the white one? If so mike idk if that is your daily bumper but you should try to find some foam strips to put right under the headlights in between the reinforcement bar on your csl bumper. I had the same issue on my m3 the rep bumpers never fit right. Great videos and passes cars look and sound great and boy are you guys moving; that pass on the supra was epic.

Oh man, that right lane was HORRIBLE! This run with you was my first and only run in the right lane. Car got extremely sideways from a 3rd gear brake boost; had to let completely off

I heard he was on bald tires and didn't even know it

That's EXACTLY what I have been thinking of doing, thanks for letting me know that it would work!

No problem at all. The foam that comes with OEM bumpers works perfect because its very thin. I will see if i can grab the part number for you to help you out Mike.
