It was me. The temps were a bit hot and no traction in 1st but was a fun day apart from the sunburn lol

Were you there?

I'm just running a JB3 and Intake at the minute, I have ar catless downpipes and helix fmic on order though, although I'm really considering some 17" wheels with hoosiers on, be nice to get into low 12s or even the 11s but not so easy with the manual gearbox

Hi mate, I was not there no...... i do attend regularly though

Have to meet up next time mate. Im a few places up the table from you mate with my 335d.

Jb3 is cool, you must have over 400HP at the fly?

Your time is about right, you will need decent rubber and also the DP to get a mid 12 mate deffo

Tbh mate TOyo 888R do the trick.

2.1794 for the 13.2 run which was my best of the day, all the other runs had even worse 60ft's and most times were about 13.4

Installing my DP's on Saturday and then FMIC when the new Helix GB ones ship although none of that's going to help with traction lol

2.1 is respectaBle mate actually. Thats good with 400HP.

drop your pressures and perform a Burnout, that will give you a tenth or mayBe more at the 60ft.

They would help, But realistically your driving will make more of a difference. Learning how to launch well etc.

Premium ruBBer is a easy way to improve also.. Ditch the run of the mill tyres and Buy the Best.

Didn't I see you running different wheels entirely on the rear at the Pod?

Whats all the talk of 400hp?

Even with JB3 set to max it's no more than 370-380 right?

Good time though, although I would have also expected high 12's for remapped 135's, but can understand the loss of traction for the sh1tty RFT's.

There is noticeable difference in 1st traction from stock to remapped, and I really think a stock car will run close to 13.2-13.4 due to it being easier to launch.

Hiya,

I've never tried anything like this but I'd like to have a go. I've got a 135i with Dinan Stage II, Dinan intercooler, Quaife LSD etc.

What do I need to do? Can I just turn up and run on the strip? Do I need a helmet, racing licence etc? Am I going to look stupid on my first few runs without really knowing how to launch etc ?

Cheers

Jack

I made 385whp on a cold day with just the JB3 and DCI on 93oct and Map 6. Will dyno again once I put my Dp's and FMIC on.

The 13.2 run was on PS2's as I've already ditched the RFTs although I didn't lower the pressure. Traction is a real problem though, but just need to work on slipping the clutch a bit more through 1st and into 2nd I think. I sort of wish I had gone for the auto box now Def gonna get some 17" wheels with DR's.

If you go to Santa Pod you just turn up on the day with your driving licence and payment and your away. No need for a helmet unless your terminal speed is over 110mph. It really makes no difference if you mess up some runs, it's all good fun and about improving your own time although it is fun to race against the others too

My friend made over 415HP with JB2 not 3 and zorst.

You go and get a 13.2 stock.... Ive seen loads 135i and 335i run stock and modified..

385WHP is pretty cool mate, must Be well over 440HP at the fly.

Ever get limp mode?

I had one limp mode when I first installed my JB3 but it just needed an extra resistor on it somewhere although I never actually fixed that as I brought the boost guage / tuning tool so BMS sent me a new JB3 and it has been running perfectly on Map 7 with just the Intake

Installed a set of AR Catless Downpipes today and damn I never want to do that again lol what a huge pain in the ass that was. I had the car on a lift and virtually any tool I needed at hand but there is just such little space to do anything with and it's made even worse for us with right hand drive cars as the steering column really gets in the way. I have no idea how anybody has managed to do this on ramps at home.

On the plus side they do seem to make quite a difference, it def wants to pull a lot more although will see what the dyno says. They sound cool too

Now just need to wait for my FMIC to arrive and maybe some meth
