Then take it as a challenge and improve your software so it's a more 'complete' calibration (for lack of a better term).

Fair enough I always look for a good challenge but that will be for another thread since this has went off topic from the OP.

Re: BMW 330ZHP AA Stage 1 Build Thread

Great news guys. I'm trying to get a few runs in on Sunday at a local track. 1/4 miles. I'm a good driver, but the car makes great power from the but dyno and is on all season tires et will probly be crappy. But on the bright side the trap speed should be a good indication of what power I'm making

Re: BMW 330ZHP AA Stage 1 Build Thread

So I had a very interesting day at the drag strip.
Let's start with the background of the day.
High 45-50F outside
All season tires
1st time at a drag strip
According to locals it's a slow track with no grip.
Had a passanger all day.
Did not remove anything from the car.

I'll post up the time slip later but my best run ended up being
14.2 at 102.35mph
60' was 2'6xx seconds

My water pump blew up on my 3rd run so it was a short day of racing.

The car itself had zero grip in gears 1 and 2. After shifting from 2nd to 3rd it would finally get most of the grip, but still had some slip.
4th gear pulls like a bat out if hell.

For comparison a 2013 mustang v6 with manual transmission, headers, intake, and tune ran a 14.4 at 97 mph.

Seems like a very slow track. One of the guys said based on my trap, if I had some grip at the start the car could easily pull off a 13.3 ET.

Based on how it felt I think there a few more mph left in that trap.

Time for new tires asap.

Wow that 60 ft of 2.6XX will set you back but the trap speed was pretty solid.

I would recommend the following:

Getting your water pump replaced with a Stewart Water Pump Turner or Bimmerworld should have it in stock.
Lighter Wheels & Sticker tire like a Nitto NT05
50/50 Mix with 93 and 100 Octane for a added kick
Passanger Removal Mod in exchange for a Go Pro

Other than that glad to see you enjoying the kit and showing those mustangs that BMW's can go fast in a Straight Line and can Handle as well.
