8/22/15 M3/M4 S55 Trap Speed World Record Set @ 135.5mph!

Hey guys,

Famoso Raceway had a rare drag day last night that a few of us attended. The track was packed and weather horrible, around 90 degrees when they started running at 8pm and around 80 degrees at midnight when they stopped running. And traction was bad. But we all had a good time anyway. DA was around 2500' at 11pm. :burnrubber:

I raced our 2015 M3 w/ JB4, PURE S2 Turbos, BMS intake, BMS meth, Dodson clutch packs, and Nitto 555R tires. Full weight. And was able to set a new F80 trap record. It's actually probably a new F chassis trap record. :) Best of 3 runs was 11.4@135mph. Since traction was so bad after the first run I gave up trying to launch hard and would just floor it at the light with traction control one pushed. The car definitely has 10 second potential with a 60' in the 1.8s and better weather won't hurt.

Jon was racing our 2015 M5 with JB4 & meth only. Due to trans slippage he limited boost to 22psi, and the car is stock weight with a heavier driver. He managed a best of ~11.7@126mph. It was his first time in the 11s in any car so he was happy. :drinking:

Ando was racing our 2015 M4 with JB4 only and really struggled with traction. Since he didn't have meth the high temperatures translated in to low timing values which hurt his power a lot more than Jon and myself. His best was ~11.9@120mph.

Jason was racing our 435 with JB4, PURE S2 Turbo, BMS meth, and some other bolt ons, and really struggled to build boost off the line. 60's were in the 2.2-2.3 range brake boosting so we're going to have to work on improving that somehow. He ran a best of ~11.9@120mph

Ram with the 740whp M5 using a combination of BMS and ESS parts ran a best of ~11.4@132mph. With some tuning adjustments and better tires I can see him picking up another 2mph pretty easily. And he has larger turbos on the way.

Eric (of MB fame) has a GTR now and I think his best was 10.4@133mph with around 640 all wheel hp. Damn those cars are fast!

Worth noting we were all running unleaded racing fuel.

I'll post up some better photos and videos later!

Wow. These are outstanding results!! That trap is out of control!!! Congrats.

135 in that heat... 135 full weight..? goddamn those things are making good power!

I know... First run with less boost it did 132mph. Then 134mph. Then 135mph. The last being at around 33psi IIRC. I'm also using the JB4 to raise timing a bit over stock.

*** edit Here is a log of the run.

Great job Terry. Pretty soon this platform will be running 11.x trapping 140+, lol :lol

It's so annoying that a GTR with equal power can put down 10s all day and we're here with plenty of 650+ cars hitting 11.5s

This is why I stick to road racing haha

I know but at the end of the day he still had to drive home in a Nissan. :lol

If only Xdrive wasn't such a POS.

A sweet car would be an Xdrive m235 with pure stage 2, that may actually be in the books for my next car, unless of course I go F80.

lol I think 140 might be possible with the seats all out, a lighter catback exhaust, negative DA like they get back east, etc. The platform is pretty impressive.

Launching it is hard. But some of our customers have had good success at better tracks getting in the 1.7s for example. Once more people add in larger turbos I expect you'll see a lot of 10 second slips.

My best time in the 435i was 11.969 at 120.06 MPH. It was my last run of the night. The car was full weight. I was starting off in 2nd all night which didn't work out too well. When I started launching in 1st gear my times improved.


Terry @ BMS 08-23-2015 11:59 AM

Woohoo! Congrats! I left before your last slip. I'll update the first post.

Newguy123 08-23-2015 12:05 PM

Hell yeah reppin for the bmws

nyt 08-23-2015 12:22 PM

How bad is x-drive? What starts breaking first? Running about 24psi on the stock turbos with 6at and xdrive. curious what I'm in for if I upgrade turbos.

Front differential has been known to break. plus they're both open diff which isn't that cool.

2 wheel drive is still better than 1 wheel drive. :)

Yeah I almost went with an E92 Xdrive N54 but chose the 135i as it fits track duty much better. Although I would love having traction for drag races

Congrats on that trap Terry. I was on the losing side of a bet with Eric as you did a lot better than I thought haha. Eric didn't do to bad either for himself.

We will need to line up the M3 and Turbo S at the airstrip should be a good run brother.

Thanks! Eric told me about your bet. I didn't tell either of you but I had vboxed it at around 134mph at lower boost on a private track so I knew it would break 130 easily. :burnrubber:

I wrongly assumed you would have worse traction issues like this the whole way down the track haha :burnrubber: Apparently you didn't have a problem beyond the 1/8 mile! Your back half of 31mph shows the power you are making. I'm 107-110 in the 1/8 but can only manage 135's the 1/4. You will out trap me in the half mile no doubt but question is whether from a roll can u catch me as I will pull out an early lead

First off congrats Terry, 135mph is damn impressive. Some of the cars @NFZ trap around there lol.

Jason what happened man? Didn't you run like 11.6 @118 last year on Pure stage 1? I was expecting to hear mid-low 11's :)

I know.. If we go from a dig I have no chance and even from a roll, these turbos won't spool as quickly as yours. Will be fun either way. Maybe we can run after you've done a few back to back runs. ;)

allmotor_2000 08-23-2015 06:42 PM

The event got more fun after half the people left.. got lots of runs in. IAT's were horrible and car managed a best of 11.31 and best trap was 132. Ironically it got quick on the drive back home after filling 3/4 tank with 91-octane (seems my tune likes a 95-97 octane mix) and I managed the 5.4s 100-200 KMPH.

Terry's car moved - need to get the M5 to shed another 700 lbs :-)

I was browsing the time-slips and the back-half 1/8-mile gains were anywhere from 28-31mph, so power/weight is there. Time for better tires.

Thanks. On Jason's car considering he out trapped Ando's 500whp M4 the power was there. Just a slow night. The biggest issue is the launch now with the larger turbo. Launching in 1st gear seemed to help. I'm sure the car could do an 11.5 with the seats out on a cool night but that car is more of a cruiser.

LostMarine 08-23-2015 09:15 PM

For the lovenof god, please ditch the nittos and get Hoosier or MTs for the track. As well as the linelock, its night and day difference

Terry @ BMS 08-23-2015 09:19 PM

Too lazy to do much with the car. These are good enough for roll races. :)
