Question Best suspension upgrades to aid in Dragstrip launches? - 01-20-2020, 06:56 PM

I'm wanting to get my 07' 335i setup for hard dragstrip launches....I really don't care much about handling on twisty roads.

My car has 100K miles on it, so it needs a suspension refresh anyways...I figure I'd might as well optimize it for the drag strip. I'm already running the Bilstein B12 Pro kit...but the rest is all stock with 100K miles on it. I've heard the M3 guide rods help in the rear.....and also solid aluminum or Delrin rear subframe bushings. What else can I do to get this thing to transfer weight to the rear tires and get some really good 60ft times? I'm ready to order some parts...I just need to know what I need to buy.

Any info would be great! Thanks!!!

I'm definitely not a drag strip guy nor do I think these are good cars for hard launches. But if that's really what you want to do with your car I would think oe non sport suspension, all 3 Megan Racing or similar rear links, a differential lock down plate with solid or hard poly diff bushings and most importantly solid rear subframe mounts.
