did you even watch the video?


they should have done best out of 3 for the drag, and for the last race they should have gave the M5 a second chance.

Wow, that was quite close, I thought the M5 would be considerably faster on the drag and there wasn't much difference. And then again I expected the M3 to be way faster on the road course (provided it was a curvy one with not many spots for the M5 to open up the taps, which it was) and the M5 wasn't too far back either even being a much heavier car. That was quite surprising.

When they do these sort of tests though I prefer when they use the same driver on both cars cause that rules out the driver skill variable

if it was a 1/4 mile then the M5 wouldve pulled away more..

i dont Think they picked the best cars from both forums.. tho the M3 had some wicked brakes.
