I knew this was coming..lol. Let's leave this to our inside voice, you know the one that Jesus' talks to us on? HEhe

He's not going to apologize and ain't no sense in trying.. and to be frank, I wouldn't put it past a similarly modded PROcede 335xi pulling the same numbers honestly.

It has ZF 26AT, when we have ZF 21AT, big difference man. Ours are rated 360ish tq max. No one knows how much headroom ZF put in there, so as far as BMW goes, you are way over limit in the 400s and sooner or later you will pay the piper you are not careful. I am sure you will be just fine as long as you don't abuse it, such as tq braking when you have those huge numbers.

Other components in the cars such as drive shafts are different too. Ours a much weaker. Need proof other than what BMW says? Couple of People on here have snapped driveshafts torque braking 335 gassoline version cars that are not really much over 400. Be careful the car was not meant to handle that much. So don't tell people they are ok so confidently. Hopefully no one gets misled to believe they are safe territory pushing the cars that much. The 335d is a tq monster but its meant to handle a lot more than our cars too.
There are about 4 threads with folks with busted tranny's and guess what? They are all 6MT cars. One guy doing figure 8s, the other had two bad tranny's replaced, one guy at the 1/4 mile, and who knows for the last. So to categorically state that the 6AT tranny have snapped driveshafts is incorrect.

I do appreciate the info on the 335d versus the 335i ZF transmissions and I stand corrected. But I'd like to see a spec sheet and not the marketing numbers. If we all went by marketing numbers, no one would be pushing close to 400hp+ on these cars with lots of longevity in mileage. There are tons more posts of folks with hi mileage running tunes than your incorrect assumption of 6AT tranny's breaking.

I would think that we agree the jury is out, but the evidence is quite a lot more in my favor of the endurance of the the 335i AT being quite dependable versus your point of view. But I stand corrected nonetheless.

Actually, according to general knowledge (and google earth) Napierville runs downhill. No need to run NOS If you do a search, you'll see other surprisingly good results with other tunes as well. Still, good results and great driving.

Great numbers, way to represent the XI's. I have been on this forum for sometime now, i must have missed the threads on XI's not being as stout as their RWD brother.

Not bad for an XI...I was debating getting one during my recent purchase too, but after coming off a Bimmer in the XI flavor, I just couldn't resist the RWD ride/feel this time around...after having the XI for a bit, I still wish BMW x-drive was up there with Audi's quatro...then again i'd never admit that to my Audi buddies...esp since I have a rep of being anti-Audi...and I'd like to keep it that way

BTW, these JB3 tuned cars are really pulling off some amazing numbers on the 1/4 mile...I don't get it, JB3 seems to be pretty much equivalent to other tunes, yet seems to pull off better numbers like this...

I'll attribute these number to the OP's shifting skills rather than a tuner comparison

Enjoy your new record !!!

Shiv

If you check, the last 3 runs are with Lexus IF-S...and he trap at 113...I think is ok for Lexus IF-S.

Saturday with a little back wind (6-7mph) I trap 115.7xx temp at 63

Yesterday with a little front wind (6-7mph) I trap 117.5 temp at 37.

And yesrterday, some mustang GT trap 99-100 mph, Subaru STI stock, trap at 102-103. I think is resonable for this car??

Same car, same track?? I think the car love the cold temp very much.

A+

No question the cold helped. And so did your solid driving. But the layout of the track is also known to be unusually good as well:

But still great results. I'm really not trying to take anything away from it.

If a Vishnu powered XI in the Quebec area wants to challenge some records, I'm game. I just don't know any tracks nearby that see those kinds of conditions.

I agree, I did my best time in my XI on a 37-40 degree day. You do have to make sure the car is fully warmed up before the run.


Congrats!
