Owner made Track video: Francorchamps Belgium

Hey all?
I just got to Francorchamps this week end and we only had a gopro to film with, and the battery was dead, we only recorded 2/4 runs.

First time with it on the track, be gentle with me...

some data: 03'05"01 is the best lap we achieved, we were driving in mdm. The ps2 melted big time. I'm looking for something more serious.

The MDM was useful most of the time except into a chicane (behind the black M3, passing with the CSL, you'll see) it really slows the car until your wheels are pointing straight.

in a high speed curve, (5k rpm in 3d) we felt the car skidding a little (half a second and the mdm took care of it. Not sure we would have saved it.

Anyways, I hope you'll like it. The song is Ratatat loud pipes remixed with mephis bleek.

Enjoy

For someone to believe the above^^^ (stock 1///M destroying a stock E60 M5), might as well believe in the tooth ferry. Something must have been wrong with the M5 or he was sandbagging. Just look at the hundreds of videos of the E60 M5 beating a C63AMG handily (which here beats the stock 1///M, as it should). Or even better, get behind the wheel of a E60 M5 and especially at a rolling start you will see that few things other than exotica can touch it (and the new F10 M5 of course)

Didn't 1M beat E60 M5 and M3 in Autobild's Ultimate M track Day? E60 M5 was last behind even X5 M.

I wouldn't doubt a second that especially at a rolling start 1M staying (slightly but clearly) ahead of E60 M5. The reason: serious weight difference coupled with same levels of torque (on paper, probably 1M has higher torque in stock as well, all the dynos reveal this) which is also available from very low down (opposite for the M5) and for a broad rev. range. I would really be surprised to see a stock E60 M5 catches the 1M before reaching really high speeds (over 160km.s/hour maybe even over 200kms.) so that the M5 can utilize the high power and better aerodynamics.

And I don't believe in "tooth ferries"! No such thing exist. Fairies on the other hand, maybe

You are quoting tracks, here is a straight line test, at a rolling start to high speeds and RPM where the M5 really shines. I bet you the only way the 1///M distances itself from that M5 is if the E60 was on P400 mode (400hp) or something was seriously wrong with the car, or driver was sandbagging.

Guys, I would love to believe our 1///M pulls out like that to an E60 M5 while rolling, but it is not happening. I can see how it is marginally faster to 60mph, but from a rolling start where you allow the E60 M5 to scream to its 8K redline, 1///M has no chance, let alone to absolutely obliterate the M5 as was shown here.

Need more convincing: take the law of transitivity. The E60 M60 pulls on the C63 every day of the week, and twice on Sunday. (stock to stock - there are a gazillion videos out there). M5 here is destroyed by the 1///M (it was not even close), yet the C63 beats the 1///M (as it should). So car A (M5) beats Car B (Merc), Car B beats Car C (1///M), yet car C beats Car A???

Sit behind the wheel of an E60 M5 and see for yourself what that car can do at high speeds from a rolling start (which this test was all about). It is not a contest. Track, 0-60 is a different animal where the 1///M will outshine, but here, sorry but FAIL.

Since you have driven both cars and I did not have a chance with the E60 M5 I refrain from arguing against you. However, your strong belief made me curious and I checked the data for M5. I thought some respectful tests done at the time would be more fair to judge the E60 M5 cause there are comparisons nowadays underlining how much better or faster the F10 is (by the way I personally couldn't like the new M5 much, I would take the E60) and I found that Autocar (I respect their detailed road tests) has some good data for the M5 from 2004 as well as their 2011 road test and data for the 1M. You can find both in internet easily and maybe u r already familiar with them so I am not attaching anything here. The relevant data is printed and sitting in front of me right now:

The acceleration: Till 60mph 1M is faster and they get even at 4.6s. at 60mph. After that slowly the M5 pulls away and the distance at 150mph is simply huge: the 1M reaches there at 31.3 sec. while M5 needs only 21 sec. Impressive stuff. Standing quarter mile 12.8 s. at 119 miles for M5 and 13.3 s. at 109 miles for the 1M.

In gear times: 1M better almost everywhere.

Brakes: 1M has better numbers.

There is more performance data about the 1M than the M5 and I think it is kind of natural that the 1M would post better times on almost any track which we already knew from the press but I conclude that probably you were more right than I was and an acceleration race between the two with pro drivers in both should finish in favour of the E60 M5 IF we are talking about a race continuing after the 60mph threshold on a long straight. In terms of performance that seems to be the only area that the E60 M5 has a clear upper hand over the 1M.

Yup, everything you state is true and credible. That was the point I was making, in a straight line race at best both are equal, we saw the 1///M handily walk the E60 M5 and increase that distance as the speeds got higher, which is where the M5 shines (big V10 lungs breathing vs. small turbos running out of breath). Hence why I felt something was amiss. Especially juxtaposed to the 1///M being beaten by the C63AMG which itself is beaten (straight line drag) by the M5. Trust me, I like nothing more than to brag that our beloved 1///Ms are faster on a straight unrestricted line than the V10 behemoths, but sadly they are not (up until the first left or right turn that is, he he)

Bringing this thread back from the dead..

It's so hilarious to see all the dumb comments
- "no DCT = fail"
- "only 30 hp increase?!"
- "relabel 135is, this is not an M car"
- "underwhelming"

4 years later, this car just happens to become one of best praised BMWs...
