• BimmerBoost member runs 11 second F10 M5 1/4 mile without launch control on street tires with pump gas in summer weather

      Here are some impressive results from BimmerBoost member Tom C who took his F10 M5 to the dragstrip. The car is basically stock short of Supersprint mufflers and K&N filters. He ran on the stock Michelin tires, stock tune, stock turbos, stock downpipes, stock wheels, and even 93 octane pump gas. The result? 11.835@120.870 without utilizing launch control. That is very impressive performance and essentially repeatable on the street.

      What makes it even more impressive is the 82 degree summer weather making for a density altitude of 2032 feet. That is not what BimmerBoost.com would call favorable drag racing conditions. Would he be able to make back to back passes with the same result at this density altitude and temp? No, but we all know the F10 M5 is good for short acceleration blasts and not extended track runs.

      Excellent street tire and pump gas results, well done @Tom C. In winter weather this car likely has mid 11 capability.

        I am scheduled to do a rental at MIR in November which should be negative DA conditions. Hopefully they do some good track prep and I can get the 60' time down. I might also lower the tire pressure a bit to help out with the launch. I might also play with Launch Control to see if that can help improve the times.

        Eurocharged is opening a DC location and they have lowered their F10 ECU tune to $1,499 for an Open House on 9/15. The fact that their location is only about 1/2 hour away for support is really making think about doing this....so I might have a tune at the track rental.
        heck ya, you don't wanna miss the open house and that deal! Send an email to paul@eurocharged-dc.com to get on the list as we have around 20 cars to tune that day so far and we want to make sure we get to everyone. We can also bump your speed limiter there on site if you want (even though everyone says we can't do that)

        If you can't FEEL the difference we will refund you on the spot!
