Went to the drag strip

Ran slow:

15.4 @ 93.5mph with a 2.5 60ft. Maybe if I didn't dump the clutch at 4000rpms I could keep the wheelspin in check, and maybe if I wasn't on 19s, I could have had a higher trap speed, and maybe if I didn't call a deserving person a moron, I wouldn't have been banned.

You live and learn.

you were banned? I was wondering where you were.

trap speed isn't bad. That tells you more about how much power you're making. the 15.4 is probably related to your technique - it turns out, drag racing actually isn't all that easy. At least, not being fast and consistent.

Trap speed is 2mph faster than my last 328i, and both are pretty stock (this one has a PE, is lowered and has wheels)

You live and learn.
N51 e92 automatic with PE and Dinan ram-air intake
15.40 @ 92.33 MPH with a 2.33 60-foot time

With all the mods listed in my signature
14.95 @ 94.38 MPH with a 2.39 60-foot time

Your 1/4 mile ET lives and dies with your 60-foot time. You have enough trap speed to run mid to high 14's if you can master the launch. . . if!

What is the elevation of your track? Mine is about 1,250 feet above sea level.
Now if you only had the gearing from an automatic and an LSD. . .
I'm also curious to know how much your 19-inch wheels weigh.

From what I saw, the wheels are about 29lbs or so for the wheels another 25lbs for the tires. So, some smaller wheels could help.

I'm in FLA, so I'm at sealevel.

cut your 60 ft to 2.0-2.1 on street tires and you'll be high 14s.

My old integra used to run 14.7 at 94 mph with a 2.2 60 ft time.

14.02 at 98 mph after some more mods with a 2.1 60 ft. That time made me mad, lol.

I took my car to the local 1/8th track years ago for shits and grins. I ran a 9.2 the second run, and put the car away and watched after that because I felt it was too abusive. That's with the 3.38 lsd and other basics.

For some reason I never felt like autocross or hpde was as abusive to the car as trying to launch it at a sticky drag strip. Technique I'm sure.

TheAxiom For some reason, I remembered you as having totaled your car . Did you end up getting a new one? Or is my memory just completely wrong here?

High grip surface, you're putting a ton of load in the axles.
