Talking Airstrip Attack!

I'm not usually much of a straight line kinda guy but I though this would be fun to go check out. My car (which was slow compared with most of the big guns) attracted a surprising amount of attention.

The car was pretty dirty, but the guys as Speedhunters took a really great photo and I thought I'd share.

Rims are APEX ARC-8. No body mods. I like things simple for go, less show ;-)

APEX ARC-8 Front Wheels: 18x9.5 ET22 with a 2mm spacer
APEX ARC-8 Rear Wheels: 18x10 ET25

I'm running Vorshlag camaber plates -3.0 up front, no toe. -2.0 in the rear, no toe.
I had GC camber plates before, but they were a disaster. If you are considering camber plates on stock 1M or M3 suspension, Vorshlag is the ONLY way to go IHMO.

I was one of the slowest cars there actually. Most of the cars were 700HP+. The runs were not timed, it was just a rolling start to a cone a half mile down the runway, and a half mile to stop. I won 2/6 runs. The most popular car was the NIssan GTR and I was faster than a stock one up to about 120MPH and he was a length or two faster at the half.

Was that even near Fresno? We had a Airfield event on the Sat. Only 40 cars but 1 miles worth of runway to play on.

HAHA never mind last.

That is funny that this event was going on the same time we had a event going on in NorCal area. We had use of both runways at are location which was about 1 1/4 mile runs before breaking.

There was also a airfield even the Philippines this last weekend as well. what are the odds of that.

Airstrip Attack was in Coalinga, which is a little SW of Fresno off the 5.

No lol, that was not me racing you in the video. I found that video posted in the 135i section and noticed it was you from the picture you provided in this thread.

I do got to say that full traction control on definitely kills power and it could have been closer.

Thanks for the kind words. Those 1M plates took more iterations to finish them than most parts and we HATE disappointing our customers.

Small question: doors of the 135i are permanently unlocked during the runs shown in the video. For safety reasons during track racing ? No automatic door locking above a minimum speed ?
