Finally got a decent time..12.7 @ 108

So I went to Atco Raceway in NJ today and did 4 passes. First pass I got a 15.xx LOL cos I lost power after my launch. I didn't know why at the time. Second pass I got a 13.7x and lost power again. 3rd pass I got a 13.1 or something and my traction control light came up and I fucking realized I never turned off DTC lmao. So 4th and final pass, I turn off DTC, and got my best launch ever and hit my goal (of the day) of getting a 12.7 I think a 12.5 is easily manageable with a higher meth conc. and upping the additive.

I ran 50/50 boost juice with a 50 additive with 93 octane today. All in all..I'm much happier than before.

Side story..going back to Long Island on the NJ Turnpike, there was a moment where I went from 60 to 110ish for about 2-3 seconds. I started to slow down..5 seconds later, a state trooper turns on his lights and I'm bugging out. I've never got a ticket in my life. I pull over and as soon as the cop comes to the window, I tell him I'm very sorry, it was in the moment. He must've been confused because apparently he was behind me the entire time and he didn't understand why I gunned it when a cop was right behind me!

Convo: "Where you boys coming from?"
"Atco Raceway"
"Oh you were racing? How'd you do?"
"12.7 at 108"
"Oh that's pretty good, brb"

He gave me a $140 careless driving ticket instead of a ticket that would have been a 5 points summons. Gotta love cops who are into cars..

PS..its still definitely normal that my car doesn't not have the smoothest shifts at low speeds right..?

I set my shift lights at 5800. I launched at 1st gear between 2000 and 2500. I'm going to go to the strip again in two weeks once I get my spark plugs replaced as well as on oil change next Saturday. I'm at 18500 miles now

It's takes effort to shift smoothly in these cars. Low speeds tend to be a bit lurchy. Sounds normal. Rev hang and the turbo aren't a manual driver's best friends.

12,7 for a fbo meth car seems very slow to me, especially for an auto.
You should try taking off dsc completely and launching in second gear while brake boosting. If youre already doing that then you need better tires.

I have an n55 with xDrive bro..what do you expect

DSC was fully off. Better tires? I have the best track/summer tires available on my car. Nothing will beat RE-11's.

12.7 is fast, dont get me wrong. I have an n54, so its different, but Im sure you could do much better than that fbo with meth.
You have x drive, so launching shouldnt be an issue, I would brake boost in first gear till just a bit over 2k and launch. Let the car shift into 2nd itself, and then shift at 6k rpm manually for the other gears.

He already got a pretty damn good 60. I don't think he can do any better. Also brake boosting at 2k rpm is stupid for a xdrive.
