Correct Dan. All 335s rely on DSC/DTC only as standard.

Its a great mod that'll give you additional bHP and TQ. Not as much as the Procede but good enough for most. Well worth it and easy to install.

Well i went to Englishtown and got the 12.89, i think a 12.7 is pushing it a little.

Well, but here is the thing to all of those that say its harder to launch with a 6 MT.
I have a 6mt, and you have way more control of your launch. For example with your Auto, you can hold the brake, step on the gas, and slowly let the brake, and you will get a decent launch.

Now with a 6mt, you will get some wheel spin, which is good in a way, you are not holding the car back. Also if you get way to much spin, you can always hold that clutch in a little to limit the traction loss.I think the reason why ppl say you can launch better with a auto is because the guy in the MT cant really drive.

A very common mistake most NOOB MT drivers do is rev up and pop the clutch, the result of that is massive wheel spin and short shifting it to second and losing good portion of time.

Again this is just my opinion!!

I am not sure when it closes, but i am definatly down for a early spring meet, when temps are still low enough for us to get a decent time.

I turned a 12.930 @ 108.74 today with a 335XI with an automatic. It's all stock except some all season tires on the 18" sports and the SSTT. Not bad for a heavy car.

awesome for a XI. nice driving!
seems like alot of SSTT equipped cars are breaking into the 12's relativlely stock or at the hair of the 13 mark. Great to see what these cars can do.
btw, i like the new site Jeff.
