Record 129.54 MPH for F90 M5 Competition

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi everyone,

More to come. We had the air - about 1600 feet for the DA which is great for us.
We just didnít have the prep.the right lane had full prep - but it was only for slick tire cars.

That said - I broke my ET record for my car - 10.93 - with a low 1.7 60í - I averaged 1.8+.

MPH however - 129.54.

I brought another car of mine and MPH was actually lower/average for that car - so this is correct.

Canít wait for prep and good air lol!

More to come.

Thanks Vic! That shows you what goodish DA can do (3000 ft last time out).

DA will get better - I just need the prep.

Nice!
It still blows mine mind with some small changes that you can make it below 10'

Thanks - I guessed 128+ so I was very happy. I do think with sub 1000 ft DA I can crack 129 and get a 130 stock.

With prep I will run a 10.8.

Thanks my friend - I only have video of the 11.05 first pass - we actually took some spray and put it on our lane to make it better when the starter took a washroom break lol. And it worked! You can see my 60ís went done from mid 1.8ís before we added the extra VHT...

I think it will go 10.8x - no question. I also think I could touch 130 with negative DA and a tail wind lol. I will post my video and more slips when I get home.

Any idea how the regular F90 M5 is compared to the comp as far as times?

Would be killer to have both at the same track on the same day.

Much worse - we added it - and it was better - but not great.

I averaged 10ís this time however and picked up 2 MPH.

Lol - I did NOT! I forgot...next thing to change.

The other thing I forgot was to use comfort for my suspension (dammit!).

I even had my Sons car seat still in the car...

That is the only way to tell. I stick by my earliest post: 1-2 tenths - and 1-2 MPH.

Itís not huge - but there is a difference.

I hope you get the Michelinís.

My only video'd run...still trapped 129+ MPH - but the ET was my worst of the day (this and my 11.05 pass were the only non 10 second passes I had).

You captured the only two cars on my overachiever list. 991.2 used to be on it, but an F90 with a piggyback is now faster. 720S is impressive. Occasionally you can find a used one with less than 2,000 miles for $280,000. They generally trap 142-144 pure stock and 9.9 to 10.1 If they were AWD (coming soon) they would be perfect. Was he modified ? Which dragstrip?
