Gentlemen the night was interesting and eventful.
First let me say it was put on by ASR Engineering and 360 Forged which the owner of the monsterous cls63 MB.
All the pics and filming was taken care of and paid by 360 Forged. The night was on his dime.
The Ranger machine came out ahead. The times were not any better than January. We could not get the Mickey Thompsons (not released til June) so had to run on Nitto street drag radials and they were not impressive at all.
Another thing we learned is that the 3.91 diff is killing me. The end result is counter-productive. The mph is being hurt. Running an M5 with stock diff. with nitrous also (the only other E60 M5 with a better 1/4 mile time) we came to this conclusion. The 3.91 is good for around town and 0 to 80 but beyond this we've experienced that it is a crippler. At the 1/8 mile my car is 2 mph faster than the M5 with stock diff and at the end I'm 2 mph slower, therefore losing a total of 4 mph.
We need to get the reaction time / short time much better and the traction out of the hole to improve to achieve a better 1/4 mile run.
On this night could not improve on the best 1/4 mile run of the Ranger machine but on the head to head run with the cls 63 MB the Ranger machine came out ahead. The times were very close (high 11's).
The cls 63 running 150 shot of nitrous with 109 octane and I'm running the 150 shot of nitrous and pump gas.
Bottom line I do not expect to see any videos of the results. At the event I am a low level scum sucking dog who merits no attention.
I apologize if no videos are produced but I have no say.
The M5 ran great and as a true champ. The M5 which has the fastest 1/4 mile time and highest trap speed(126 mph) is also local. The car was also prepared by ASR (Abid's brother). This M5 has been running now for more than 34,000 miles with the nitrous and all is perfect. This is a true testiment to ASR's awesome nitrous set up and how perfect it runs. What do you nonbelievers have to say?
Anyway the M5 runs beautifully but can be better and will!! Abid and I have discussed the next level.
Lets hope the videos do come through.
Cheers my friends, M5Ranger...Juan
