    Who's has BMR drag bags, What d'ya think?

    Who's Running the drag bags? How do you like them? Look exceptionaly easy to install with some minor cutting. Doyou notice a differnece on the street also? Let me know your thought and opinions on this set up vs. other methods
    of controling wheel hop. I use it as daily driver and occational a road race course or an autocross course, but will once in a blue moon hit a strip. Thanks for the help as always ladies and gents.

    I do not have them but our local groups has 5 cars with them. They are next on my list!!! Everyone has rave reviews of the drag bags. You can get them from Speed Inc as well. Dont know if either or are cheaper.

    Depends on the track........... Anywhere from 12-18.5. I also grab a good sized kit from 1400rpm. No 3000 rpm bullshit on stock converter also.

    I just split the T and am running split independent valves. I am not spraying. It seems like the more psi I have in the bags the less I bog off of the line?

    Hey! Post #1 for me. Can't believe it took me so long to become a member here.

    As for the drag bags, they're (one) of the best mods I've done. Bags plus M/T 275s on stock 17's equals zero wheel hop.

    20lbs on the street, 5 lbs at the track (I'm an M6), 18-20lbs in the tires. 1.58 60' and getting better...

    Drag bags and bar

    I run with the bags on the track. They helped alot with street tires. I run with 20lbs in the right and 18lbs in the left and I don't get wheel hop. The bags are great but I did have trouble with bmr with the strote bar, It didn't fit the way it should of, the bar was not correct, It didn't blt down correctly, it had a twist to it, they told me that my car was in a accident, no it has not, so I send it back and they send a new one back, not perfect but better, I lived with it,

    yeah. i didn't use the t-connector. there was enough hose in the kit to run them independently. i mounted the valves next to the gas cap.

    I ran at the track this weekend and was kind of experimenting, I ran 25 in each a smoked the tires, I ran 7lbs in each and bogged and then ran 15 in each and did alright so I guess i just need to keep testing it out, both are on independent valves now...

    BMR drag bags eliminated all the wheel hop on my 06 M6. Definitely worth the $100.
