Fighting Torque..

Saw it on Oli's PH post, just wondering what it is? some sort of organised event. Saw also on there someone had a custom map for a 335d,, which also sounded interesting!

Carlos ... go here:

http://toolbar.google.com/T4/intl/en...r&tbbrand=GZAZ

Download and install the google toolbar, which will give you a little window at the top of your internet explorer like this:



Type the words 'fighting torque' in the window and press the enter key.

This will open up a list of relevant internet sites - clicking on the first site in the list would be useful in this case.

Interestingly enough this works for all sorts of questions

Carlos all the times and speeds were in the original post, the one where the 335d with the super map got beaten by a CSL and Z4M coupe.

Where is that then mate?

mike, remember the 335d is an auto, cant exactly launch it, first gear is a waste of time to. It would wuite easily do a csl from a rolling start.

No clutch on a CSL buddy. The 335`d strong point is that any muppet can launch it well Carl.

I know mate i drove one, it has LAUNCH CONTROL THO.

only a SLIGHT advantage

The 335d can be launched by any muppet, but it still AINT A QUICK LAUNCHING CAR.

1st is a pile of piss and it can only really be launched at 1500-1700k

So therefore IS disadvantaged to the CSL on a standign start

In gear. 40-150 the remapped 335d will beat it.

Carlos your talking utter shit again. It might have launch control, but from experience it doesn`t improve acc times, I bet if you look at your 60 foot times they`re very close if not better than most CSL runs.

Fighting talk was also a 3/4 mile drag race with terminals over 150 which I would`ve thought would be the 335d`s forte.

Carlos .. your biggest problem launching the 335d is not the short first gear. It's more an issue of controlling the very high torque levels.

If you do a hard start, (i.e. foot on the brake, hold revs at peak torque, release brake and accelerate in one movement) your torque converter is locked up from the off, which reduces the initial problem of pulling away in an auto.

The issue is that because of the gearing the level of torque in 1st gear is REALLY high, so if you have DSC off you will wheelspin and if you have it on the engine will bog down.

When I first did a hard start in my auto 530d I had dsc off and the car literally didn't move. The wheels just span stationary all the way up to 30mph and this was on 275/30/19 tyres
