That's pretty quick! Quicker than BMWs 0-60 for the xdrive.

Thanks for sharing !

I raced a newer camaro SS, like a 2012 model year, 5th gen one. V8 with like 420+hp and I beat it pretty easily. I thought he would give me a run for my money, but nope. The car had a manual trans so that's one of the reasons it lost. I have a video for proof but it was filmed sideways.

Here is what Motor Trend said, "In Motor Trend testing the 426-horsepower manual-equipped SS ran a 13.1-second quarter-mile at 110.8 mph."

13.1@110.8 That's good MPH, shows it has good power, but some guy here posted his 12 flat slip @113mph in the M340i. This car is a monster. I am so glad I chose this over the 2019 540i. I don't think I would be so excited in making Dragy Videos or just using the dragy in general if I got the 540i. Dragy is the acceleration measuring device.

I think the x drive is officially 4.1 now. With the Perrelli tires the grip is phenomenal even with RWD. You only need x drive in bad weather or road conditions.

No it's not. Pirelli run flat tires are crap compared to Michelins.

xDrive is nice if you want to launch the car. It's not just for bad weather.

I have RWD as well with the Pirelli run flats but will be swapping sometime next year to the Michelins, can't wait.

Ps. We need to see a proper track test versus the competition; all this time, nothing from the C+D etc.

I've seen Pirelli's on the M5 so they must be pretty good. I rarely spin my tires on my RWD MPPSK on dry pavement or even while cornering.

I lose traction with mine sometimes although having the non staggered setup might also play a role. I have gotten the tail out with these run flat Pirellis. Can't wait to get the 8.5" wheel to fit the wider tires in the rear. That's when I will swap to the superior Michelins non run flats.

Yeah, 400ish horsepower all motor cars from about 5 to 10 years were high 12 to low 13 seconds for the benchmark. Similar spec cars with turbo power today are about a second faster.

That would be a 3.8 if done with the 2 ft rollout that car magazines use....impressive.

i will get this car into the 3s to 60mph without rollout.

i just checked the dragy app and this run with the 1 foot roll out, the car did it in 3.83 seconds to 60mph.

the scumbag member here named, upsidedownfunnel, is trying to get me in trouble. Go to the "3.6 seconds to 60mph" thread and check it out. So I had a had to take them down.

I have more videos and time slips to post. But not gonna do it here. I have another youtube account, because he started to put up mirrors of my vids.

4s 0-60 for a RWD with shitty run-flat? Wow. Wonder what my xdrive one with ps4s will do. 3.8? Or lower? I am in Canada not USA, so we can only get xdrive here and use metric system aka 0-100 km/h. Usually 2 tenth of a second more than 0-60mph. If your video is legit, i have no doubt my car can do under 4s 0-100!!! It is still being built or being ship to the port. Will get it by the end of Nov. Too bad with the weather here and break-in period. I won't be able to test it until next April.
