Why do you think that I have PSS and not the stock PS2s? You need all the traction in the world with the 1M if you want to use 1st gear properly. That's 101 in 1M book.
+1. The 1M's weakest point is at the launch due to its 100 lb-ft torque advantage over the M3.

If you're walking a 1M below 80 mph, it's probably because the 1M driver doesn't know when to shift. Unlike the S65 where hp builds up to redline, the N54 hp maxes out at 1,500 rpm below redline and falls off from there.
