Here is my VBox time to share:

0-60: 4.0
55-110: 6.25
50-110: 6.59
60-130: 9.88 (2 shifts)

I only had one sucessful 60-130 run which I made with 2 shifts. I made two more attempts but even with my raised 8400rpm limiter, I could only get up to 129.89 in 4th. I am pretty confident I can get the time down since 9.88 wasn't my best attempt. I shifted too late from 3rd to 4th. Also, it's hard to get good 0-60 time on this car especially with a tune. The throttle is so sensitive that it's hard to get a good launch. I definitely need more practice.

I have the following mods: RPI Ram Air Kit, Block Off Plates, RPI Pulley, RPI GT Exhaust System (Sec 1, 2, 3), Powerchip/RPI ECU Tune.

Good point. I didn't look at the elevation data until now since the road looks pretty flat to me. But to my surprise, I was actually running on an ~15% incline! I started at -53.251 feet and ended at -45.86 feet. So my time should be much better than 9.88. I guess I gotta find a flatter private road. By the way, temperature was at about 70F.

What was your technique for launching? Drop clutch, or LC?

2006 M5--Sapphire black/sepang
Dinan: free flow exhaust, Stage 3 engine software, high flow throttle bodies, high flow air mass meter/intake Assemblies, stage 2 suspension, 13% underdrive crankshaft pulley, 5.8 liter stroker engine, Dinan middle exhaust section, custom headers (I think I am finally done)

2011 Space Gray ZCP E92 M3; two-toned black and red interior; Dinan 4.6 liter stroker engine, intake, exhaust, midsection, pulley, and throttle bodies.

Best 0-60 times were by using U.S. LC. I later realized that I was doing the LC wrong. I just pushed the gas pedal half way. When I do that, it's so hard to control the throttle after I let go of the shifter. The correct way to do it is to press the gas pedal all the way down until the kick-down button is pressed, and then lift off the gas pedal a little. After letting go the shifter, just got to modulate the throttle a little and then floor it. This way, I get more consistant times. Drop clutch is when you just smash the gas pedal and go right? I get no traction at all with that method.

Awesome numbers! Is it correct to assume your car went 0-130 in 13.88 seconds? That is very fast.
