    Ws6 vs m3!!!!

    Hello guys im new to this forum and i like it here seems cool, and i would like to share a kill story in NEW mexico.

    I own a 2010 MERCEDES E550 388hp 390tq which is very quick. 1/4 mile in 13.0 seconds @t 109mph is notting to laugh at for a stock car. with a 7 speed tranny. but it will cost me a arm and a leg to jus get it into low 12s lol
    So i bought a WS6 lol

    i raced my uncles 2004 M3 with 333hp and like 250tq

    First run was from a dead stop till 110mph very close race with me holding the lead from start to finish.

    2nd run 20-90mph i basically killed him by at least 3 car

    3rd run 65mph-140mph well i lost? he beat me a 1cl we raced on the highway 3 times and i cant pull on him why? its a straight 6 with 330hp and a SMG tranny.

    What gear are you launching from in the last race? What is your gearing?

    Its your speeds, ive owned a 2001 M3 Manual and they are very fast above 100mph. The gearing on them is excellent and pull hard up top.

    you're also losing your torque advantage up there. Old saying goes "torque wins races at the drag strip....HP wins races at the salt flats".
