Is it safe to claim the fastest F10 M5 recorded in 1/4 mile?

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
As much as I tried to get into the 10's, the weather did not allow or the car was just maxed out. I went to Famoso raceway yesterday with a friend of mine, who got a 2014 Challenger SRT8 372. It was raining really hard on the way and Grape Vine had some snow as well. Yes I know, snow in California at the end of April. We got to the track to find out we were the only two running test and tune during some other bracket racing event so we were not going to get too much attention or runs. It was sprinkling at the track and local guys tried to clean up the track as much as possible.
Mods are, DP's, Meisterschaft GTC Exhaust with LXR Intermediate pipe, RPI scoops, BMS tune.
1st run, track computers messed up and we didnt get our time. I used sport throttle, trans in D2 and comfort suspension. Car did not feel good at all and decided to went back to the basics and stick with manual shifting.
Run #2, S2, Sport throttle and comfort suspension. Launched very hard after getting some heat into the tires. As soon as I hit 2nd gear I also switched it to M2 button, which was pre-set with S3, Sport+ throttle and comfort suspension. It lightly sprinkled and track officials decided to take a break.
I was able to get two more runs in after running 11.3's with bad spin off the line and gave up after as the track was just to damp.
Also had a first service appt at a dealership so I didnt want to miss that.
I found what she likes at the track and I just have to perfect my foot.
After another track event I am more convinced that our cars are very inconsistent and moody. Kind of like women. No wonder I called my car Salma. Even with sticky tires we cannot get a good launch without using launch control and that takes too much time to play with at the track.
I can definitely promise that I will continue to perfect it and try my best to get to 10's. Here is the time slip, vid and some pics. Enjoy.

Dude, yes I think it's safe! LOL!

Yeah stupid rain man, that totally blows! Without the rain, I'm sure you'll be in the 10's.

You should also try one run by yourself with Launch Control just to see what happens. You never know.

But yeah, seriously awesome launch in that video and superb pictures. Almost makes me want to go back to Black. Your car sounded like a "Beast!" Wish you got that cocaine interior though. Sorry, Pkilla's in my head again.

Now the next time I ride with you. I'm gonna just say "Smoke him."

He's running drag radials on the back. They only come in 19's.

Salma as in Salma Hayek? One of the most beautiful women on the planet? Good choice. Hitting the 10's would be very appropriate with a name like that.

The overall diameter of the tire between the front and rear needs to be the same, if not the transmission freaks out and keeps on kicking in your traction control. Since the drag radial is taller 19" was as close as I could get. Still have traction control issues, but I just disable it completely and that solves the problem.

They also come in 20's. But they are 1.5" taller. So they are numerically lowering your final drive ratio which is counter-productive for drag racing. Like Green said they also mess with the shift points and traction control.

Nice. By the way LC isn't too difficult to engage. Try it out on the street and let off (by letting off the throttle and letting go of the DCT lever)- just to get used to engaging it.

You'll probably get upper 10's in good conditions.

LC does nothing to help traction. The 3000-3500 rpm launches just blow the tires off. The DRs might hold, I never got a chance to try last year. The problem is if the other guy stages quick then you have mere seconds to activate LC.
