335 vs Some fast cars

Well over the years I have gathered loads of data & tested quite a few cars of mine or buddies at events. I decided to run my stock 335 sedan runs against some of the cars I've tested over the years to see where we stand. Bear in mind that we are at 5200 feet elevation, which tends to skew the results when running normally aspirated or even supercharged cars as they tend to lose around 17% power at our altitude.

Here's the one's the 335 wins:

Stock Sti8


Stock B6 S4


Z4 M coupe (the S54 version)


350Z


M3 CSL:


Stock RS6:

And here's the cars we didn't do so well against:

My buddies Sti9 with SZ49 & all the other mods you can think of on a Scoobie, running around 26psi on race fuel. And what makes it worse is that he totally bogged this run:


Chipped RS6 on race fuel


Stock E55


Porsche GT3 MkII Stock


Stock M6


vs my E30 325iS Turbo (T61 running 20psi on race fuel with semi-slick tyres)


Buddy's Euro E36 M3 supercharged (Runs 10.6 @ 140mph)

Sorry 5200ft. Not CO, down under the other side of the world.

Why don't the graphs all start at 0 mph at 0 secs? Are these rolling starts, or are the graphs not superimposed well?

If you want to simulate a drag strip run on the VBox, you need to cut out the roll-out. Which is around 11-13 inches. As a standard we cut out the 1st 11 inches from the time the car starts moving. How fast you get to at that stage depends on a lot of factors. For example my E30 had semi-slicks & I have laiunch control. So it leaves the line with a reasonable amount of boost, with good rubber & has around 500lb/ft to the wheels. So you see after 11 inches it has a reasonable speed if it hooks.

You also see the 4WD cars doing well there & accelerating to high speeds quickly in 1st gear.
