Some of us like going straight and mastering the launch techniques.
Others like turning. It's all about personal preference.

Oh you think I like turning? Like I'm a rat that FBI turns?

Joking

It's just funny how this forum's 90% of the content is distributed across pricing and 1/4 mile times.

Are you seriously that lonely, you got rid of your M5 yet feel compelled to troll here? We are using 1/4 mile racing as an accurate metric for testing and improving the performance of our cars (plus it is fun). It is a better test of performance than dyno numbers.

First you are trying force us to drink the "m3/m4 is better kool-aid" and now you are telling us how we should enjoy our cars?

It is an Urban Legend (not to be confused with Bimmerpost Member Urban Legend, who is actually an Urban Legend), that PostMember Nullcheck is actually former post member FTC120, who coincidentally got banned from Bimmerpost a while back. Nullchecks, unwaivering enthusiasm and steadfast lunacy bears a striking resemblance to FTC120's online personality and writing style. But like I said, it's all an Urban Legend.

Oh also, Postmember Urban Legend is free to comment on this subject as well.

I think we should start a bet. What's the over/under on Nullcheck's ban. I put it at 30 days.

Hey you stole my discovery---- Nullcheck is indeed FTC120 LOL anyways Im not sure as I don't have IP address access but as you stated and I did previously he mirrors FTC in many ways.

And it appears the mods have noticed as Nullcheck is BANNED.

Hi guys. Late on this thread. First time at the track today and wanted to see what you more experienced guys do at the line? Launch Control or just step on it once the light turns green? Tried launch control at 4k on my first run. That was a mess. Hahaha. Basically spun out. Tried launch control at 2500rpm as well but i'm still spinning the tires all the way through 3rd gear when it finally catches. Best time I got was 12.6. Going again next week to dial it in.
