F30 N20 1/4 Mile Thread

Post up your results. I did 14.1@99.5 with a horrible 2.2 60ft. It started raining before I could get another run. Only mod is BMS Stage 1 tune.

That trap speed overlays with stock. If your launch was terrible-indicating wheelspin, if anything that would just inflate your trapspeed. So I wonder how effective your stage 1 tune is at this time.

It wasn't a terrible launch, I just didn't have a chance to raise the RPM's and get a more aggresive launch. 14.1@99 is the best I've seen from any magazine and I was able to match it. Hopefully I can get back before the season is over and get some more runs.

This will be a fun thread! There's an 1/8th pretty close by but I'd love to see actual 1/4 mile time of my car.

Finally got a good run. 13.8@100mph. Hopefully I can get into low 13's next season with some wider summer tires and a downpipe.

Ultimate driving machine. Not american muscle car. Just messin! Lol.

But...Are these even fun to drag? My evo was in the 11s and were low twelves with passengers and that was fun.

I dont see a 328i being fun at all to drive in a straight line. Thats just me though.

How much more power does your tune give you? Are you running on runflats?!

What was running that 11.4?

^ I wonder that too. I was doing 12.5 with my Evo with a few mods. I might drag the BMW a few times just to see what it does with the intake, exhaust and BMS stage 1.

After owning a car that can trap 130mph in the 1/4 i have no desire to run my new car at the track. I might a few times stock and each time if i add a performance mod i will see if it helps.

1/4 mile time

Hi

I did VBOX testing on my 125i Auto with BMS JB4 stage 2. Standard tyres - M-Sport mixed 18" Bridgestones. I ran a 12.7sec 1/4 mile @ 111mph. I did 0-60mph in 4.3 secs.

My car makes 221kw and 444nm at the flywheel. I launch with 2500rpm with my left foot on the brake with DSC off and in sport auto. Then WOT and brake lift off at once. Minimal wheel spin. I use Map 1 with a 20% Ethanol and 80% 95RON pump fuel mix.

Once I have the flex fuel wires installed, I will increase boost and try improve on these numbers. My car is otherwise stock.

So that is 300whp and 327ft lbs. What was the cars stock crank rating? Stock car, just BMS stage 2 at +4psi and a mix of E85?
