Dual clutch versus Manual - A DCT E92 M3 and a manual E90 M3 race on the 1/4 mile drag strip
BimmerBoost member LostMarine met up at the ATCO dragstrip in New Jersey for some fun runs and a comparison with a manual M3. The blue E90 is a manual and the black E92 M3 is a DCT. Videos are from inside the E92 M3. Both cars have similar modifications with airfilters, Turner Motorsport test pipes, and mods to the OEM exhaust system. The DCT wins both races easily and the difference is quite large at over half a second and 3+ miles per hour. Videos and slips below.
