Auto / drag racing

I had a 335Xi / Steptronic, best results is to brake boost around 2k rpms, I pulled tons of 1.9 60' , I know I was awd, but even many auto 335i / Rwd guys pulled 1.9 60' too in Autos using same method. This is hard on the car, so just hold it briefly once staged. From there just mash gas/let off brake , aim straight w/ auto pretty relaxing/consistent let the car do the shifting. Start off in manual 1st gear.

Good luck / keep us posted!
