M5's Latests Racing Experinces..(long)...

Hello everybody....

After 2 weeks of holidays I am back and have some new racing experiences that I want to share with you...

M5 vs. Mitsi EVO 8 380-400 HPS, 500 Torgues...

This car has been developed by our local Japaneses Car tuner....costed 65,000 Euro ($80,000)...heavily moded...

Acceleration times 0-100 in 4.4 by tuner, tested by Car magazine 0-100 in 4.8....0-200 in 22sec...

Lights Green I am behind him, he launches slowly, then road clears, WOT black smoke comingout from his exhausts, I am on his back, very surprised that I am keeping up, pass him as traffic ahead, next light, he is behind me, WOT 60,100 he is on my tale 120,140...start pulling away...shut down at 200 with him approx 3-4 cars behind...

On the weekends I went for StreetRacing with freind in other M5...He beats all other M5's on Moscow....on the way there we raced...most of the times rolling starts sometimes he pulled on me, some time I did...From the Light I beat him...

1/4 runs.....a Subaru guy comes to my freind as everybody knows him there, every weekend he racing someone...He refuses to race him, telling me he is modified cause Subaru man is not scared to race for money....Anyway I think WTFK....I'll race you...what have you got??? he goes "a modded STI and a freind on mine has heavily modded WRX" (right hand drive from Japan)...both have more then 280 HP's...

We lined up 2 Subaru's and my M5...Start...immediately they jumped on me like 2 cars upfront...I spin my wheels in 1st....2nd start gaining, 3rd pass modded WRX, and just at the end of 1/4 more even catched up with STI...Other M5 owner is calling me, who won, how did it go...I told him...said I'll have another go...now he is up for it as well ....We are off, now I have no wheel spin, but slow launch could get my REV's to stay at 1.500, Subaru's 2 cars up front, other M5 1 car ahead....in 200meters we pass WRX then in other 100 STI...So victory went to M5's ...I've lost cause slow launch :flag...I offered another Race but he refused

Other late night I was on my way home from a movie....slowly approaching the lights..then I see what I was looking to race for a long time since I've got an M5, a Blue RS6 Sedan 19in...passing me...very nice car ...I woke up immefiately...follow him...light Green I am behind....1st, 2nd not pushing hard...pass a police check point...go next to him, start to play with him, in 3rd we both punch it, he jumped on me by 0.5 car, but the end of 3rd I gain, we are even, 4th a pull a bit...he gaves up, and turns right...I follow him...he wants some petrol, so I leave him, to my luck petrol station is closed....I wait for him at the Next Lights...RS6 stands 1 car behind on my left, light Green, I move slowly in 1st, my window opened, see and my mirror and hear he goes WOT, I go for it as well, 2nd, 3rd....we were dead even....I am RS6 is no faster then M5 rolling start...

Still going home....Waiting at the lights...I see Silver Porsche flying by...going same way I need to go...follow him and catchup with him at the lights....next light we are side by side...lights Green....WOT....1st we are even, 2nd he start to fail behind, 3rd he is 1-2 cars behind, next light same story...Next light...I hear this sound....a modded STi with loud *** exhaust comes on my right, Porsche on the left....Green, I hear STI tyres sqeak, 1st even with STI (hear his blow off valves), C4 a little behind, 2nd I pull on them, 3rd pulling hard, 4th I shut down with Subaru 2-3 car, Porsche 3-4 cars at the back...I am so happy what a beautiful Night....Subaru is gone to the right...Porsche next to me at next light...try to speak with him, but he was probably so upset, that 2 sedans beat him so badly, that he ignored me and didnt even opened his window...

Other day I followed a 360 Spyder and M5 could keep up... every time he floored....I did the same a the gap did not increased....Unfortunately could not race him as he turned home and his bodyguards in G-wagen who catched up with us later...at the lights....stayed on his tale in traffic, then he turned to small streets....

Then in the evening on the way to friends house....I see big red brake lights on the back window...come closer....its a beautiful Black Bentley GT...light Green I move slowly , he moves slowly...then Bamn and Silver Wagon passes me on the right, Oh my God its another RS6 ...I accelerate...Next light we are side by side....a man in his mid 40's, with open window, I look at him, he looks at me, Lights Green, 1st he jumps like 0.5 then 1 car on me, then a wet area on the road, my wheels start spinning, go sideways, hit the limiter ...He kicks my *** badly...I feel embarresed...he thinks it all over...and indicates at the light to turn right....I pass him on Red and turn right....he follows me....road not very good, I am in 2nd, road better, he behind me like 1-2 cars, I hear him and see in my mirror going WOT, trying to overtake me on the right, me WOT 2nd, 3rd....my suprise he did catched up or gain on me, I even though that gap had increased...He comes to me at traffic lights...We chat..I say" what happend there...you could not catch up... he said "or I've got scared of you exhausts with some and fire coming other of them, I have bad petrol in car" ...We spoke a bit more and went separate ways.....I was happy and again proved my self that rolling start RS6 is no faster then M5...infact as speed will increase M5 will pull on RS6....Even my M5 fellow said he runned with RS6 in 1/4 and beat it...

Guys have fun with your M5's it is still a BEAST...

Good Luck to Everybody....

Good writeup off all your races. Keep at it, I enjoy your reports and comparisons with the M5 vs various models. Russia sounds like good street racing, but bodyguards is that needed?

Great write up!

Tell me, How are the roads in Russia? - generally speaking.

Are they prone to pot holes, and the such... with the drastic changes in temperatures, I would expect some, but am lookig to your first hand experiences...

Been wanted to get to Russia for some time now, the wife took russian hist, and is in love with the concept. How was the experience over all.. travel... visa, etc

Sounds like you had a blast!

Dear Misha:

Your threads keep getting better and better. Your English writing skills have improved quite a bit and I really enjoy reading them - good job.

Nice one Misha, good runs on all the cars.. I've chased a Bentley GT on the motorway, and he very easily just left me from 100mph+

Seems like you get fire from ya exhausts? any vid clips?

I have No CATs, that is why sometimes at high REV's the Fire is coming out, unburned fuel, High REVS 2rd to 3rd...BOoM some Fire from 4 pipes...people tell me it looks NICE ...

http://www.tt-leser.at/image/P1000298.MOV

The roads in Moscow are fine..espeacially in the center..Quality simular to London, but twice as wide and long....it is normal for me to brake 100mph in the city...In the evening when less cars...it like a highway with some Traffic Lights...Rest of Russia is another story...Not that good...



P.S. Had a race with Porsche 993 yesterday, I think it wasn't a Turbo version, but FAST... Very wide wheels at the back, definately bigger then stock, looked like BBS...he killed me once, when I miss launched, then I killed him twice, 1st and 2nd we were even, and I would start to pull slowly in 3rd, he also had some fire coming out of his exhausts ...May be no CATS as well...I was impressed with his performance, it was faster then 996 C4 I've raced before....I thought it would be an easy kill but he killed me first then I've got the back...
