Question about Roll racing with an f30 335

Hey, so i recently got a 335 and did some modifications to it. From what I hear, putting it into M mode is best for racing so you can shift it, but what are the ideal gears and shift points for 20 rolls and 40 rolls? Many times the car shifts on its own way before redline, so I accidentally double shift the car and ruin the whole race. Basically, how do you appropriately race in these cars without brake boosting or launch control?

I shift my gears myself and tend to have the RPM's around 2500-3500 and just brake boost and go. Love walking those coyotes. Make sure you shift around 5500 because our turbo runs out of air past that and you'll make a lot less power.

use your left foot to brake just slightly enough for you to have to push the gas pedal to keep the car at the same speed you were going before pressing the brake slightly. All you wanna do is increase the load on the motor to build some boost.
