Outside view against a 997GT2 and Vbox data.

Here's a video shot from outside, I completely messed up the angle of the video unfortunately but still cool to watch. You will notice the extreme traction issues in both runs, the 2nd worse as the car actually becomes too unstable to keep going. The 1st run goes up to 150mph, I pull about 3-4 cars once I switch into 4th and get some traction. The Porsche brakes at that point, I kept going. These runs were at 25-26psi.



Here is the Vbox data from these 2 runs.


1st Run.





2nd Run.

Its odd as ive had no traction issues with them before this weekend. Either my new retune is just more powerful and the car is running it's best or my tires are worn. I did lower the tire pressure as well so that might have something to do.

For the guys that care about VBox graphs, this is interesting! Spud4ea I know you will enjoy them lol.

4 graphs, the full file with all the runs (these were all against the built GTR) and then all 4 dissected. The wheelspin is just ridiculous in all of them!

No doubt, with full traction and full boost, you are well into the 4's, and that is RIDONKULOUS fast! I was going to go with the tires you have since you speak so highly of them, but now I'm thinking what can be done above and beyond those!

Thanks Mike! I know this car can break well into the 4's with full traction and boost.

I'm disappointed with these damn tires as well. But I think they may be slightly worn now. Also the early morning moisture might have made the ground slippery. I'm trying it again, I just ordered a new set. I can't fit anything taller, that's for sure!! They are almost a 28" tire!

Damn 5.5 seconds. I believe that is the fastest documented e46 m3 in the usa.

It would have been if the decline was just a smidge less. Has to be under 3%

Yup! Didn't know the road was that bad there but didn't really think about it as it was for some runs not 60-130 tests. Also this was with horrible traction and 25-27psi.
