    • New Quickest and Fastest BMW 1/4 mile record? South African S38 Powered E30 - 9.02 @ 157.45 mph

      Car is built by Budler Motorsport. Its the first time out so these runs can be considered shake down runs. The car is powered by a S38 motor from the E28 M5. Its has a manual gearbox. I am reckon we going to see mid 8's from this baby.

        not too impressive but looking at that speed it should have been a sub 7.5 run

        What is interesting to note is that they have moved the turbo which seems smaller back into the engine compartment. This must've been one of the changes to gain the extra 10mph on the exit.

        Here is the before pic.

        Solid diff.
        Its still a unibody and not a tube chassis which is impressive.

        that looks like a Borg Warner housing or more specifically a Bullseye spec housing and the turbine housing also looks a bit wider
