Congrats Fab!

It's great to see a M3 finally with some supercar power!

Your biggest concern now isn't power, but traction, so respect the power and stay safe. Also the popo's are out on a witch hunt lately, so stay descreet on the street.

Once my TT's all done, were going to have to line up for some fun!

Car looks sick, I remember watching the video on it a couple weeks ago.

My buddy just got a racing ticket, he's serving jail time instead of a $5000 fine. What he was doing was stupid though, 170 in a 70 in the middle of nowhere.

There is a video of another e46 HPF turbo m3 with the same kit, that ran 11.something ( i think it was 11.9) on race gas and i believe it was on street 19'' tires too.

Edit: It was 11.66.

A good 1/4 mile time will be difficult. At that power level, the IRS driveline becomes the weak link, and is prone to break coming off the line with any power. Remember, the drag race is won or lost in the first 60ft. I learned that the hard way when I raced a Mustang and lost to him at the strip with his 10.9@109mph to my 11.1@131mph. Even though I had over 20mph on him at the end of the quarter (almost 200 more HP), he jumped so far ahead of me off the line it took the whole 1/4 to almost catch up to him. His car was faster with almost 200 less HP only because he had a solid axle.

If 1/4 mile times are the most important aspect of building a high HP car, you'd start with a solid axle car, like a Mustang.

Now highway rolls is a different story.

The Mustang I was running was a '88 Mustang, H/C with slicks & skinnies.

I had a 447ci Aluminum LS6 N/A motor with 581rwhp with a drag radial.

Someone has a video of it with Randy violating her . . . . .
