Jb3 Map 3 not that much faster than stock?

I did a few quick runs with my cousin today

he has a 100% stock e92 335i, with a full tank of 91 and crappy tires

I have a BMS DCI, JB3 Map3 e93 335i with a half tank of 91 with 285/30/18 in the back and 245/35/18 in the front with pretty good thread

We did some runs, and well... from a stop, I killed... but.. from a 40mph roll, he kept up until I hit 3rd, where I took off...

But... i thought that a Jb3 would be faster in all gears...

From a stop, my tires with better traction are what most likely help me the most...

if i remember right, BMWUSA says the e93 is 4025lbs stock
take off maybe 20lb since i have a CF hood, and 5lbs each rim, and prly another few lbs each tire since they arent RFTs

But I weigh 225lbs and he only weighs 145.. so any weight i might have saved is gone since i weigh so much more than him...
