MIR 10-7-11 Media thread

VIDEOS AT THE BOTTOM

------------------------------------------------------------------------


Another great MIR drag rental!!!

If you've never made it to one and your within a days drive, your missing out!


I finally ran my car this time :alright

Met up with 2 ESS s/c M5's (one being Adam / Clemster w the Fikse's) and a HPF M3 at a local Wawa to cruise the last 30 minutes to the dragstrip.

A huge well done to Adam who clicked off a 11.77 at 119mph to take the world record low et for an e39 m5. Way to go man, you've earned it!!! Great driving.





Cruising





Needs moar low



We were some of the 1st people there, time to shoot the sh*t while they prepped the track

Donovan just rolled in from NJ w his evil e30





Jonathan unloaded his awesome Mcoupe



more about these 2 later

the ESS twins





my M3 cooling off, finally ready to run this time!!!



Fresh coat of Dodo Juice was worth a tenth at least right?





serious biz















Clayton's amazing SL600 which is tuned.............boner!!





very handy little guy







Jonathan and I surveying the track while prep......STICKY

Donovan ready to run the silly juice



Boris's tiny snail







New background on my computer



This GTR and the Zr1 were going at all day, VERY evenly matched. Doing rolling starts from 40mph to 140mph past the traps and they would trap the same exact speed every time..........equals.







After Jonathan blew his engine/HG and Donovan had blown his 2 spare axles he 'borrowed' one of Jonothan's Mcoupe axles





Procharged Z06







Me......god my head looks big compared to the car. e36's are quite small huh?



my best trap of the day, at 13.4psi I was very pleased with this. NO TRACTION until the top of 3rd and still managed over 120mph on my street setup on low boost.



Donovan after a MONSTER run. When asked how it felt to deploy the shoot for the 1st time, he said "I almost pooped my pants"





Boris almost lost his face after loosening his coolant reservoir........scared the shit out of me and covered him in hot coolant....luckily not that hot!!!




VIDEOS

ZR1 sub 11 second run, bone stock on DR's



Mcoupemindy early run



ESS twins running


Donovan running 156mph



Donovan running 9.59



Boris backfire special!



Boris 9.91



Back to back e30 beasts, worth watching!!!

Yeah definitely. You're car did look amazing though in action.

Spinning into 3rd was brutal lol. I couldn't figure out when to get on it and was either too early or too late. The next time I'm out there, I'll try out drag radials. Oh yea Adam's car was definitely in BEAST mode.

Wow...congrats to Adam!!

Just played all of the E30 monsters at full volume on my studio monitors and man did it sound sweet...still not as good as being there!

Matt glad to see you got your car on the track...albeit with some traction issues...

Hope I can get some time off for the next one of these.
