Smile My car is capable of 14 sec 1/4 mile

was just at the track this weekend and ran 15.7 but my reaction time was way over a second very sad and I red lined every gear cause I was to excited.. So I think with some practice I will get high or mid 14's. + I could lose a couple hundred pounds off the car next time I go..



---------------------------------------------------------------------------


I cant get a good picture of the sheet for some reason but I will try to explain it..

I did 2 runs my first says....

reaction 1.302

I1 .000
I2 6.702
I3 9.870
MPH ( I3 ) 72.458
I4 .000

E.T. 15.705
MPH 73.249

Kicked my bro's ass in his Vr6 this run Which I almost never do on the street..

My second run...

Reaction 1.082
I1 2.356
I2 6.920
I3 10.132
MPH ( I3 ) 71.451
I4 .000

E.T. 15.754
MPH 87.348

Won this one also against a modded 318 i

Dude, RT isn't included in the 1/4 time.

Also, I'll assume the speed in the first run was a typo. Decent times for an M20B25 in any case. What mods?

What was a typo??? my top speed?? Even if the RT isn't part of the total time I think I might be in the low 15's with pratice..

I have 288 schrick cam, Triflow, Cone filter, Chip, and a very solid suspension..

Hey wassup,

here are my times for a comparison. Like he says he had bad shifts but is it normal for an 4cyl to be so close to a 2.5 inline 6?

My mods are: Drop-in K&N filter, chip, muffler, unfortunatly removed the resonator, at least it saved some weight but I now have that raspy sound...

1st run Right Lane won vs riced-out Z24

Reaction: 1.138
I1: .000
I2: 7.038
I3: 10.337
MPH(I3): 66.787
I4: .000

E.T.: 16.239
MPH: 83.755

2nd run Left Lane lost vs bmdoubleya (I had the spare tire removed )

Reaction: .985
I1: .000
I2: 7.114
I3: 10.476
MPH(I3): 66.287
I4: .000

E.T.: 16.337
MPH: 83.749

i took my car to the track last year and it ran 15.2. that is also because i can drive, and go when you have no gas and everything out of your car, ie the spare tire, etc. all i have done to my car is borla exhaust and k&n. i think that e30's came stock running a 15.7-8 in the 1/4. was this your first time, because your reaction time is low, that would cause you to loose on the street. anyway that is cool man, down here they have a track about 30 min from my house and they have "import" night and the bimmers come out and race the honda crap. good luck with future running. and practice your reaction time.

What does all this mean Please tell me???
Reaction time does not change your 1/4 mile time....

And there is no way you can do high or mid 14's with the same setup you got...

Something has got to change cause ...15.7...is the stock 1/4 mile time on a E30

And i think Bob Loblaw would give you your money's worth at the track...

hey Bob Loblaw, let me know when you get some people together to go to Lusksville, I would like to try this some day.

Is'nt the track in Stittsville also available to the public?

This Wednesday is our BMW Club meeting if you are interested. We meet around 7pm at The Cottage Kitchen Restaurant on Parkdale, north of Scott street.

Klaus

You bet, Klaus, I'll let you know. It'd be fun. As for the track in Stittsville, I could say. I've never been there.

Thanks for the invitation for this Wednesday. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it. These are monthly meetings, right? I may be able to go to the next one. What's the date?
