So i borrowed a friends Vbox a couple of days ago because i wanted to see where i was with this 60-130 thing, i really had no clue where the car would be nor did i have any clue on strategy. Well so far with about 6 runs i have a best time of 9.6!!!!:M5launch: Most of runs were 9.7, 9.8.

Now here is where i need help is with my strategy, im actually running the fastest when i start in 2nd gear witch means i need 3 shifts to get there, i feel in theory i should run faster in 3rd cuz im only a few hundred rpm's out of the power band. Also in 2nd i have a big traction issue where i can spin them the entire gear so i never really get to floor it till 3rd anyway. So what i wanna work on is a rolling start in 2nd then shift at 7400(57mph) then ride out 3rd from there or wait for a warm day where i can gun it in 2nd and see if i can get faster. I also have all my track gear and 3/4 tank of gas in the car plus some laundry in the trunk lol so i havent like run on minimums yet to max the time. I know you can have up to a -3% gradiant and i could have been going up hill for all i know cuz I got no clue how to use the vbox yet, as soon as i figure out how to upload the files i will. HOPE I DID YOU GUYS PROUD!!!​

Nice work!

You should list your mods in your signature. Curious to know what you've done that earns you the wonderful 60-130.

Nice times!

Are you using an SD card in the vbox? Did you download the software to read the files? Let me know if you need any help.

YamanM5:

Your times are rivaling DarrenDallas's stroker times. Pretty fast!

Those are some unbelievable fast times for a non-stroker M5. The fastest stroker M5 time 60-130mph was 8.68s. What sort of slope was the run done one? Can you post a pic of your pbox data?

I saw your video. And you think this is fast ??? WELL. Come over To Greece ( we are very near ) to see what a fast M6 is like. No offense man, you have a very nice car, but stop dreaming about doing 60-130 in 8.2

or even 9. Anyway congrats on a nice car.
