Is that a joke? lol

A stock S52 E30 will pull a low 13 with no traction. You'll hit a 12 for sure, if you don't Jesus himself will cry.

Trust me the tires make a huge difference with that much power and mine are shot. We'll see at the track though.

My steering rack leaks too much to pass tech, and MTO would have a field day with my car outside the main gate.

Well the first track outting of the season went well... too bad there wasn't more E30s out there. As expected with the crappy tires my best for the day was 13.25 @ 107.9 MPH.

^^^Your runs were really good still for street tires. I was there all day with a few buddies.

At least your E30 looked HawT ripping some passes on the RSs

Ran a pair of 14.3s in the 328Ti, 96mph and 97mph. For a stock 2.8 in a winter car, I'm good.

Jay nice runs, looks like you have some tweaking to do before we can make a pass

I thought a b5 s4 would be atleast in the 13's.. ?

Did you already sell your Pulsar?

There was a black one there, thought it might be yours if it's already sold.

His looked more dumped though.

Nah still have it, there are alot of them running around Ontario these days, more an more people are starting to see the potential of these cars.

Did the black one you saw make a pass? I know bone stock they can pull a 13.5 . If it had black rims with red time attack rings then I know the guy, his is slower than mine

Im really curious what mine will do, only problem is ive never been down the strip or even launched hard with this car so im a noob in that sence.
