Put my 335i throught the 1/4 mile....very happy!!

OK, lets start off by saying that I am no John Force. I would consider myself slightly above average driver. That being said, after work last friday night i ran home, got my helmet and took my 335i sedan to Englishtown raceway. I got there and ran the car the way it was, 36psi in the tires, almost half a tank of gas. I did not powershift.

My first run against a honda civic-
I spun out of the hole, when i shifted second i had wheel hop, all other shifts were solid.
ran a 60' of 2.60 (horrible i know) but a 1/4 of 13.60 at 102mph i was impressed and surprised by that.

Second run against a G35-
60ft of 2.3 with same problems as first run, however this time i was shifting right at redline and more wheelspin in 2nd and the fact that the car doesnt perform best shifting at redline, led to another 13.65 at 106mph in the 1/4

My last run, solo (i was the last car of the night)
a 2.06 sec 60' with some wheel hop, less, but still some hop in 2nd, and all else perfect from there, the car ran a 13.403 at 103mph.

I cant tell you all how impressed and happy i am with the performance of that thing. There was also another 335i coupe there, his best time was a 13.6, but to his defence, he had a broken finger and 19" Im very sure with some better driving i can drop another tenth or two

Ill post pics and timeslips ASAP
