Most of you have seen the build thread on our 135i, JB4, VTT motor, GC2 turbos, Fuel-IT PI & Stage4 system, etc. Well Tony decided to take a shake down pass before shipping it down. Due to traction just left it in 4th gear and floored it. Results were impressive to say the least, a new platform record.

Does it still count as an MT record if you don't shift?

That thing is hauling some a$$. Was that 32psi? Or am I reading it wrong?

What is the diff situation in this car?

It has an MFACTORY LSD, 3.15 gearing IIRC. Traction is going to be a headache at this power level but we'll just ramp it way down in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd with the JB4's boost by gear settings. And we can always bypass those on the fly if traction in 3rd is better than expected on a run for example.

Do you think the car would be more controllable with a clutch type diff w custom ramp angles
vs a gear type diff?
