At least it was a lot less expensive than a complete transmission as is the GTR with the GTR, but proves that it's very possible to f#k things up by trying to do miltiple launches.

But I wonder did BMW stand over the warranty or was they resction the same as Nissan's.

Check out his other videos. They're worth viewing.

This guy is good at editing his vids to make them enjoyable to watch.

Something to consider is that the torque converter on the Steptronic will take the initial shock whereas there is only minimal clutch slippage with the manual.



M3 e46 don't have step, rather SMG.

I let you know if it breaks on launch #2.

My Convertible, won't do 13.4 I bet.
