Sweet! Although I don't think its really that fast. The 135i running at ~5.1lb/hp for example did 168mph starting a hair before the cones, so .4m? And trapped 136mph in the 1/4 with some problems. It runs 5.8s 60-130 to the M3s 6.3s on the same slope. At 645whp the M3 is ~5.7lb/hp. So I imagine the M3 will fall in the mid 160s cones to cones. I do tend to do my runs later in the day when its hotter out so my traps are never that impressive though.

The car is also speed limited at some unknown speed. Does anyone know what the actual S55 factory limiter is? It seems to disable the limiter when you're on the dyno. The docs say 155mph but I've taken it over that on the runway. I've heard various reports ranging from 158mph to 173mph, lol.

PS. If any event trap speeds don't really matter. We just need to line up and race from one set of cones to the next.
