Out of curiosity of course, and how much would that cost?
People already have some NA/FI setups that do, I'm sure. What else? Suspension and clutch? How much total?

Thanks.

You'd need a bigass turbo, bolt ons. weight reduction, suspension, and slicks. I'd say 15k or so would do it. No chance getting it that fast while keeping it reliable IMO. You will never beat it off the line.

AWD > FWD

Hmm. Was just curious, thanks.

For 15k more, you could practically just buy a slightly used 335xi.

Just wondering, s'all.



OK, just for kicks... a 328i?

well.. a 330 means 3.0 liter.. 328 means 2.8 no?
si to 328i, you'd have a good chance since they weigh more for their hp rating
actually scratch that.. the new 328's have stronger motors lol

the 335i comes in an xi variant. doesnt really matter though, the 335i is better in every way except in snow. BMW doesnt make AWD for sports cars, on dry roads, BMW makes the 335xi be RWD anyway, itll just be slower because of the weight and drivetrain friction.

you can probably take a 328i out of the box, although it wil be a drivers race. the 328i's have the E46 330i engine. 3.0L 230HP.

Eh, not always. Depends on the horsepower, weight, etc.

335xi isn't even out here yet. But to beat one you'd need a pretty significant make-over. A built K24, suspension upgrade, wider tread, gutted car. Not worth it.

Nice, nice-- Yes BMWs are sweet. Then I look at that sticker price and think, "Hmm. That's three vacations at four-star hotels over five years."

Damn nice car, but f*ck that.

What?

Help you understand the rest of the market?

Broaden your vision of the automotive world?

Are retarded.

Straight line racing? Should have bought a different car.
On the track? Should have bought a different car.
Gas mileage? Here's where you'll win.

what car exactly should you have bought for a track with $21,000?
i agree with your on straight line. but your not going to avoid "those threads" on any forum you go to..even mercedes forums which supposedly have mature drivers. actually, RX-8 forums ive been too i dont see things like these...

I think handling is where this thing shines. A few people track this car and love it. I will auto-x next year, and I'll judge for myself. But, you know what they say, if you have nothing to contribute, STFU.

I kid, but yes, valid points. More importantly, I saved a bunch of money.
