    Why is the pss9 on full stiff? Shouldn't it be on the softest settings possible for the strip??
    Mods: stockish. 2980lbs. I need to lose more weight but can't give up my heated seats etc. Stock LSD FTW. 11/18/08: Need to reweigh with much lighter coilovers.

    I didn't know this thread was going on.. I'd like to add my times from a few years ago. They were in another thread but I guess that was taken over by this one.

    1997 M3, 100% interior in minus the spare tire.

    fan delete
    UUC Underdrive pullies
    Cosmos Racing 3” CAI
    AA 3” track pipe
    Edge Racing cat-back exhaust
    Diffsonline.com 3.46 rear with 40% lockup
    Jim Conforti “Shark” injector


    Time:

    13.450 @ 102 w/ 1.8 60' time was my best

    Slip:


    and another slip

    Yes launch details and suspension info please. I managed a 13.7 at 104 with a 2.3 60' time. I would love to see what I would trap with a 1.8. Do you slip the clutch a lot? What size tire do you run, how do you feel about the differential you have?

    The 1.8 60' was on the 245s like I said before, with the 3.46 40% lock diff (even though I had a bunch of 1.9s before the diff) and a UUC LTW flywhee/m5 clutch combo. Suspension was Koni struts/shocks and h&R race springs. The struts were set about mid range on stiffness. Really all I did was launch at about 3500 rpms and very slightly slip the clutch. She would just hook and shoot away. I raced a STI once and he had a 1.9 60'.. came up to me asking how a stock looking M3 pulled a better 1.8 60. hahaa

    there are two IDENTICAL 13.864's Alex ran one, and I ran the other. (I had better 60' ) He trapped at 101 and I went at 99.. And Don't worry about adding this run. I plan on heaing out there this Wed if its not raining to bring it down a few .1's

    Thanks

    pretty much what I do, suspension is also similar, same flywheel clutch combo, I have done 1.8 60' on goodyear eagle F1 G3 235/45/17's....I think it is the dakar yellow that helps 60'
    cheers, Alan

    I have an updated time:

    mods are the same as before save a catback exhaust. I don't know if I have made anymore power from my last dyno without the catback. Last dyno was 212rwhp/211rwtq.

    Time was as follows:

    60' - 1.965
    1/8th - 8.630
    1/8mph - 80.81
    1/4 mile - 13.481
    1/4mph - 100.88

    My camera is dead right now, but I will post up time slips as soon as I can. I kept the tire pressure around 32psi and it was a nice 65 degrees out so I think on a cooler day and lowering the psi to 20psi might yield a better 60'. I think this car right now is capable of 13.3's and I am going to try to get there by the end of the month.

    This was done on 275/40 General UHP Exclaims.

    I think on a cooler day and lower tire pressure I might be able to get a loow 13.4 or a high 13.3. That is what I am going to go for on the 23rd of this month.

    Next mod will be 3.73lsd.

    he has the euro motor right? Fish what are your plans for the car? Cams and an agressive tune?
