330i ZHP vs 1998 M3

tonight, i met up with my cousin with his 1998 m3 and we did a couple of laps around a deserted track around the area, wanting to compare the 2...

zhp is completely stock (and step ), with bridgestone potenza re40s

m3 5spd has shark, dinan CAI, and exhaust, with kumhos

we just did a couple quick laps for fun cause we had places to be, but overall i was keeping up with him, he starts to pull away around 80-100, but thats only about as fast we were able to go on this track. but 0-60 we were about even.. not one car was much better than the other. (if any of you guys are curious in the north nj area of where this track is, just PM me). I wish i had a video camera to see how it really compared. but we're planning on doing again sometime soon and when he's equipped with much better tires, i was able to hold my ground on turns while he was kinda losing it with the kumhos...

until we really learn the track during the day time or get a chance at a longer straightaway, overall, i was able to keep up to the 98 m3... fun times, looking forward to the first oil change this weekend, gruppeM arriving, and RE pulleys installed sometime this week and comparing it with those. but you zhp owners, if you ever come across an e36 m3, you will get a good run for your money!

Why? Because you don't seem to want to run on a pefectly good track with guys willing to race you. Oh I got it- its so you can come up with excuses for why your car isn't running good and noone will be around to hear it.

Man dude, drop it already. Look at my sig, my clutch and flywheel is on order and i wont be able to install it till around christmas. I wouldnt spend $1000 on a clutch and flywheel if i didnt need it.

I NEVER said my car was faster than yours(and im still not saying that), I(notice how I said "I", not my car) only ran a faster time that you(again "you", not your car). Maybe im a better drag racer than you, maybe i had track conditions favoring me those those days, there are so many ****ing variables its rediculous!

Maybe around christmas(i dunno if the track is even open then) we can both run again and put an end to your stupid bickering. Its not like id spend all of that putting up several threads each posting me times(search) from that night. The first time I went out i didnt run 9.4, i think I ran around a 9.6xx. And its not like each time I go out there i run a 9.404 every time, sometime its more like a high 9.5(depending on conditions)

And back on topic, when i was referring to any empty track around me i was referring to a road course and the like.
