New e46 m3 records - 10.1 @ 145mph, 5.12 60-130mph - hpf drag m3
We took the car out and ran it's first few full passes. We flat out just overpowered the tires on all 6 passes. PIR does not prep it's track at all and it was a very ugly cold day. We tried dropping tire pressure until the car was extremely loose at the top end. We also have to install NOS to spool the turbo at the line and we just haven't gotten around to it yet. Next time out we will start adjusting the suspension as well.
I was hoping for a 9 second pass but we will get it next time. The 10.1 was with a 1.7 60 ft and traction issues. So there's a TON more in it.
FOR those wanting to understand why an auto is so brutal on the track, check out the VBOX logs from Pass 4 (the last image on this post). Not a single lapse in power anywhere on the pull.
