On my 6MT XI I still go through rears much faster than fronts. I found the toe to be the critical alignment factor on the rear if running stock-ish camber. I went to almost straight ahead (less...

When I've logged it, it appears to me that a hard shift causes a lot of oscillation in the DMFW springs for a short amount of time that frequently results in pulled timing. My assumption was that...

I'm a GVR4 guy from way back. Cross shopped the 335xi and EVO IX (and a couple others) when the time came. Bought the 335xi with a 6mt. Reliability is an issue compared to Mitsubishi. As a second...

My local dyno guy recommended never regapping them once they've been heat cycled. I guess the heat weakens the electrode and makes it easier to break off later if you regap. I don't know for a fact...

Speaking of DWS and wear, I ran my last set with a custom alignment. Left the stock height and camber alone, and simply changed to almost no toe in. I think it was maybe -0.3 degrees at the most. ...

Waiting for my CPO warranty to run out in a few more months. After that I'll get a new clutch and find out. It was a big deal on my DSM, I expect the same on this car.

108mph means you have enough power for 12s. It's just a question of traction now. The easiest way would be to put a sticky set of drag tires on some stock wheels and launch pretty hard. On your...

But if you're running 124mph an EVO might almost be able to squeeze a 10.99 out of that.

It's hard to say because it depends so much on the driver. Not sure how much tuning is going to do for them on the stock turbos. A JB+ or whatever you call it seems to help them a bit at sea level...

At high elevation me (Cobb+ATR, DCI) and my friend with a 550GT AWD both race at the same track. If the 550 driver lets a LOT of boost build off the line, my 335xi has to run E85 to keep up. Max...

I'd say get the biggest turbo you can if that's your benchmark and pick a gear that puts you at about 5krpm and ride the brakes at full throttle for a second or two before you get to the start line.

Don't know anything about JB4. Shifting a 6MT hard can sometimes be counterproductive on a stock flywheel because it allows the rpms to oscillate for a second after the shift and can cause knock. ...

He has an xi. No need to even think about 2nd gear launching. All he needs is consistent rpm and boost on launch. And a clutch that can handle it.
