I haven't been as active on the forums lately... YouTube and Instagram are where I post most of my content now. If you aren't already subscribed/following there, you're missing out ;)

That being said, I have exciting news I want to share! I took the car to the drag strip after doing a ton of modifications (listed below). My previous best was 10.90 @ 136mph with full interior, stock diff, stock axles and radial tires. I did a bunch of weight reduction, upgraded my diff, axles, suspension and tires and went back to the strip. Results below:

1st pass (20psi): 11.29 @ 128mph with a 1.94 60ft
2nd pass (25psi): 10.53 @ 137mph with a 1.73 60ft
3rd pass (28psi): 10.36 @ 134mph with a 1.59 60ft

The old record for a manual N54/N55 with stock BMW chassis was 10.70 @ 135mph, but I'm now the fastest after beating it by almost half a second! Yes, Ghassan Automotive went 9.6 but they have a custom back-halfed drag chassis. I think I can run 9's as the car was misfiring during my 10.36 pass.

The car has made 752whp and 691wtq at 30psi. Being at ~28psi with a misfire, I'd guess it was making ~700whp on this pass. Log below.

Its just not a record.
The others modify there cars to go fast.
Then some muppets say they have a record becsuse they dont have good parts to go fast.

No record to get other then beating 9.34.

Congrats on the time @suspenceful !

I've enjoyed watching you build the car up. I am a little disappointed that you are on IG more than forums as we are eroding away the internet by putting more and more content in the realm of walled gardens. I won't be following you on IG due to Facebook (and my lack of account) but I wish you luck with the endeavor.


Loving the interior changes with the car. Do you daily the 1 series at all anymore with the F80 in the stable?
