My Ride: E46 330 and E30 325
Ran the car at the 1/4 mile

I took the car out to Gainesville Raceway this morning to do a few runs on the 1/4 mile dragstrip. I haven't ran it since I got the differential on.

The car is steptronic 330, so it's slow as hell. I have intake, exhaust, software and a 3.91 differential.

R/T......... .007
60'.......... 2.237
1/8......... 9.618
MPH....... 74.23
1/4........ 14.97
MPH...... 91.34

What do you guys think? I'm considering doing some transmission work to decrease the shifting lag between gears. Any other suggestions? I'd do headers, and put two mufflers on there to keep it from being retarded loud. However, I don't want the car to drone. The only reason why I'm even considering it is because the 3.91 will make up for the loss of low end.

The car's an auto, so I have to be selective as to what I get.
