    • New overall BMW E9X M3 1/4 mile boost only record set by Active Autowerke supercharged E90 M3 - 11.2@126

      Congratulations to BimmerBoost member akh23456 and Active Autowerke. Akash's E90 M3 with DCT and the Active Autowerke Stage 2 kit with meth injection set the new quickest boost only 1/4 mile time with a run of 11.2@126. The quickest/fastest overall E9X M3 time was set with nitrous so this is now the quickest run with boost only. Even more incredible is that the record settings runs were done on street tires. 10 second car with drag radials? Certainly a possibility.

        1.7X can be done...

        @akh23456 what method did you use to launch?

        Not all 335i owners are ignorant about the M3's higher torque than the 335i due to the powerband. I read about this awhile ago, some guy did a comparo with graphs and $#@! between an m3 and a z06, and as it turns out, they both have the same torque levels are almost. Anyways, I used to be ignorant about that sh1t too, its a little hard to understand at first, but then it all makes sense. Click here to enlarge

        I basically had mdm on turned off dsc for the burnout mode and then turned dsc back on. Then i would wait for the light and just put the pedal to the floor and it do a mini launch around 2500-3500 and just go depending on how i burned out and my tired pressure. The thing i realized is if your running street have your rear set to about 25 psi and do a really good burnout. It should give you good traction depending on prep. Honestly the prep that day was the best i have ever seen and the guy added a little more prep after 1 to help the ford guys out and it helped me out as well.

        It's on now! But seriously, the M3 top end with boost and the DCT is no laughing matter.

        (was linked to your thread on MB asking about me and eating some s/c m3's Click here to enlarge )
        Isn't everything on your car considered bolt off?

        I'm just talking smack to brew up couple more people for atco Dec 5th

        Link to this please? I always the 335i had a lot more torque I mean stock they produce more torque than the M3. I just assumed it was because the M3 was a high revving V8 vs a lower revving turbo straight six.

        Difference between crank torque and axle torque. The 335 does make more torque at the crank. This has to go through the gears and final drive.

        There is a threshold to power and street tires at the drag strip I didn't fully prepar myself with DR's and the car puts too much power down , if I had something to hide or didn't want anyone to know what state my car is in power wise I would never share what went down at the dyno PERIOD , the dyno had lacked good air fans , when Akash comes up for some friendly runs we will dyno and I'll bring my fans and prove my point ... I was 1mph behind Akash and I'm 6Mt I was clearly making 590+whp at the strip as my traps are spot on compared to a ESS 625 DCT TRAP ...
        I hate to break it to you and you can ignore this all you want ESS has the fastest/most power bolt on supercharger for the E9x M3 platform !
        The drag strip is all about perpetration my friend , a car with 450+ whp can be impressive when prepped right !! Look at what a ESS DCT VT535 KIT did ... 11.8 125mph ... Need I remind you that car has no inter cooler .... No Meth .... And 4.5lbs of boost .... Explain that shorty Click here to enlarge


        What are you going to say when the out come on the street is different between me and Akash ? Guess we will see what you spice up .....

        Akash this is no way in offense to you or am I talking your car down I'm just being realistic .

        Maybe your car SHOULD put down 555 whp and the other numbers were a bunch of BS? You suddenly lost 50 whp? Ok Click here to enlarge

        600 whp should be producing 130+ in the 1/4 mile. Your dyno's are a marketing exercise which is why we have been trying to get you and the other paper racers out to the track.

        This is poetic justice as you ripped on AA claiming their power was too low but same place same time the AA kit proved to be more efficient and whooped you. Where is your power bud? Instead of attacking Active Autowerke claiming they aren't making the power they claim you should hold yourself and ESS to the same standard.

        You foresee a 128-130 trap suddenly? Don't throw around claims like that on paper that you can't back up.

        Maybe go back to playing with graphs where you are more comfortable?

        if you had no meth then ya, no intercooler your car will heatsoak and will be slower than a car with meth, period...my question is why would ESS ever release this highest boost kit WITHOUT either an intercooler OR meth, wtf is that??

        IMHO, these kits should have meth as a requirement, even if its 100% water and a small nozzle, just to keep IATs down

        Wow really impressed by this....... This kit is proving itself to be a genuine option for thise that want real deal performance, Well done AKH, well done AA, now please tell me we have some footage?? did you guys do any runs AA Vs Ess on the way home??? i know you did!! come on now....... Details, details.....Now as a loyal ess fan and owner...... i have to say Guys no excuses, this kit did the $#@!!!

        Your close ,
        M point it a 535 HP kit car that doesn't have IC nor Meth trailed him by 1mph , which is impressive to me !!!
        I have IC as have the 625hp kit but I experienced major traction issues cause continental DW's weren't cutting it !

        congrats to akash for the 100th time im still blown away by these results on street tires lol!!anways, in defense of M33, sticky you cant pretend you dont know how big of a difference DCT makes on trap speed and ET on these cars, especially when supercharged. Dont you find it impressive on behalf of the ESS kit that the 6speed kit was only trapping a MPH behind of the AA DCT kit? (let alone how bad that car spins, you have to be at the track to see him spinning into 4th its just plain stupid).....and for the VT1-535 non-intercooled kit to trap 125@11.6, I think we can use our imaginations to what a DCT VT2 high boost kit could have probably hit that day (130mph+)....I dont know if youve seen the video of Drew against a VT1 ESS kit, but the results are drastic - the intercooled kit pulls buslengths on the VT1. So in reality I dont think theres anything "false advertised" about the kit, but its the fact its 6 speed. If anything the results are impressive I would think...that is, for a 6 speed.

        the high boost kits are intercooled
