i'll try it from a roll tonight.

Add a little e85 if possible. I found that helps. Usually 3 gallons 91 or 93 to 1 gallon of e85. Someone also said RWD mode? I didn't see any difference though. I'm surprised you even care with a 997TT that does 60-130 in 3.2!!! That is insane. Hoping my next car will be a modded 911TT.

so on stock tune you were doing an ethanol blend? interesting. my 997 is flexfuel, but for full kill I use Ignite red ethanol race fuel in it.

it's a different ball game for sure, but different kind of car too and can't leave anything stock. M5 will be faster than my M3 was once i get my BM3 closed beta tune rolling.

this is my 997 on setting 4 (32 psi) out 5 (36 psi) with 1 shift from 2nd to 3rd... i think it can do 3.0-3.1 for all in. it really starts rolling on the top end so 100-150 is in the 2s already but never did a dedicated run for that.

Yep it sure looks like it or maybe all those add-ons are also helping

My best Stock with DPs

60-130: 8.19s with a +1.39% slope in 72F 1500ft DA followed by 8.34s +0.69% slope in 2000DA
60-130: 6.94s +0.12% slope in 73F 1700ft DA on Costco 93 w/ STG1+ @BM3Tuning/HCP Tune

It does vary on fuel level in the tank but I kept it always above 3/4 or at full tank to keep it more weight in the bank to help it hook. The negatives of running the car at fuel reserve to achieve record times is not worth to me after seeing all the fuel starvation issues on various cars.

It's always good to do both from the DIG and see the full data and then from a roll as well.

Wow. That's depressing. Going from that to an M5 would be like most of us buying a Honda Civic and trying to get a good 60-130 time out of it...

Oh I saw you were also having issues with inconsistent launches. Try to take your foot off the break as soon as it revs up. If you hold it there for long at all too much boost builds up and it will either spin and shift to 2nd right away or TC will kill the power and it will bog for a second.

Last thing, my best time was in auto mode. I feel like it's hard to time with the paddles and if you try to hold onto a gear too long the power falls off. Auto mode seems to short shift a little and it feels quicker to me.

Good luck!

you definitely feel it with your whole body, have to shift basically every 1.5 seconds so takes a lot of focus to get the shifts right. you have to get them right because if you shift to early its very easy to fall out of boost.... then it has to respool a little bit
