No Fly Zone Arizona

On Saturday, March 12th I will be participating in the No Fly Zone event, which is a rolling start 1/2 mile top speed event at a local airport. I'm curious to know what speed do you think my 328i, automatic N51 will achieve in a rolling start 1/2 mile?

This sucks. I was in Scotsdale last week and only flew back in. I am going to hazard a guess here at 120mph.

I want to say 140 with sport package.

132 is my prediction.

The top speed is electronically governed, I think at 155 mph. Unless you also have an ECU tune. Many, like AA, remove the electronic top speed limiter. More accurately, the limiter isn't actually deleted with the tune, rather the Vmax field is raised to higher than the car is capable of. At least that's how it was described to me by AA.

At the end of the straight on the track, it is routine to see Vmax just south of 140ish. I believe that the car is easily capable of higher speed given a longer run.

Your event sounds like fun. Drive safely and have a blast!

155 only with the sport package. Otherwise its less.

I'm actually fairly sure it cannot be removed. They can only increase it to 158 (the maximum 8 bit value, FF, or 255kph).

I appreciate your optimism, but this is a 1/2 mile rolling start, not a three mile down hill event, with a tail wind!

Interesting - you would have first hand experience on this. AA simply told me the field is changed to "well beyond what the car is capable of". Maybe just semantics, but the phrase seems optimistic in this light.
