Default 08 335i vs Supra - 09-22-2014, 10:24 AM

Well went to a big supra meet this last weekend in Las Vegas some insanely beautiful cars. Sitting in the stands was getting old quick so I went and payed the $100 to race with them. I was pretty happy with the cars performance considering the conditions. 100deg with 60+% humidity. Mods are jb4, bb pump flash, down *****, DCI, charge pipe, and 5gal of e85. Best time was 12.9 best MPH was 110. I need meth something bad IAT where up there in temp. Here's a video of the 12.9 pass. I'm glad the track wasn't any longer, he was charging like a freight train.

Good run, ET & trap seem appropriate for your mods. Are you AT or MT? What tires and what was your 60ft time? That's a lot of $ to enter a drag event, was this Supras invade Las Vegas meet? I've always wanted to go to that or TX2k, maybe by 2016 I'll have enough power to feel worthy of attending lol.

Yes it was the Supra's invade Vegas meet. I had a friend come up from PHX that was part of it. Very cool meet. I think they need to get rid of the 1/4mile stuff and rent a air strip for the day and do some 1/2 mile plus stuff. Those cars make crazy power but 1st and 2nd gear are pointless unless your on slicks. I think they are missing out on making this a huge event by not adding some other brands. (BMW)
You have enough power I got a lot of cheers from the crowd when I ran. Nothing like a BMW 4 door getting to the line first over 800rwhp cars. Their MPH was 129-143.
My car is a auto, Mich pilot sports run flats!! The track was in great shape I had a 1.94 60ft launching in 1st. Never tried a 2nd gear launch, I don't have a blocker yet. I also had a completely full tank of gas filled up 3 miles before I got to the track, I was not planing on racing.

They have another event for that, it's called TX2K.

Supras in Vegas is Supra specific for a reason. 12.9 is pretty disappointing IMO for your mods...

I'm fairly familiar with Supra's invade Vegas event. I was merrily pointing out from my point of view they are going to need some help if they continue to plan on renting the speedway for the day. I was one of the last cars to register for racing and I was car #30. They had a lot of cars in the show but you could have a show anywhere. And if it was Supra specific meet, race, or event why did they have 3 out of the 5 classes that any make of car could run in? TX2K is a huge event. With a little planning and multi branding they could make this one worth while also.
I thought 12.9 in the conditions with a stock FMIC and no meth was fairly descent. The 2014 5.0 Mustang run out there's best trap speed was 104, and I don't think he broke into the 13's

Bumping this stupidly old thread. However I was there and remember watching your car and thinking "It's time for a new daily". One year later and I have my own 07 335i e90!!! I will say 2014 SIV drag racing was so horribly boring. 700hp+ running 12s all day gets old quick haha. 2015 was much better as the cars were all running in the 10s and 11s(As they should for IRS street cars).
