BigD (M5) vs TOMSBABY (S54 Z3)

Yesterday, just east of hurontario on britania

Very nice M5, (e34 version with 310hp stock). Running start with cars equally lined up. I was in 3rd gear at about 40 km/h. Didn't downshift to second just to see how the torque mesured up to that of the M5's 3.6L (3.8L if it were the euro version - 340hp). As soon as I hit about 4000 rpm, I quickly started to pull on him, at about 7000 rpm I was 2 carlengths ahead. He missed the next lights on hurontario, I waited for him and then we talked for a bit. Asked me about the exhaust (eisenmann) and if I was running boost (NA S54). It was a fun sprint with a fellow BMW enthusiast.
