    • New N54 1/4 mile trap speed record of 133.57 set by a single turbo automatic E90 335i

      The N54 moves forward with a new fastest 1/4 mile record. The previous record set by a 6-speed manual E92 335i was set by Vishnu with a 131.99 mile per hour pass. That was done back in May of 2012 so it has taken some time for the bar to be raised. The new record stands at 133.37 but Vishnu's 10.822 elapsed time remains the quickest 335 pass to date. The 2.7 60 foot time with this new record is obviously not going to get one into the 10's.


      Part of the problem is lag from the from the Precision 6466 turbocharger. This is something automatic 335's will have to figure out how to mitigate.

      Specs for the 2008 E90 335 on this run are full interior, full weight, over 1/2 tank fuel, and a e85/93 mix. This is on the stock motor, stock automatic transmission, and around 30 psi of boost. This car was built by Proven Power in Florida and tuned by Jake Hershorin of proTuning Freaks.

      There is room to improve here significantly but the problem of course is the automatic transmission which can not be launched hard and is slipping at this roughly 700 wheel horsepower power level.

      Congratulations to BimmerBoost member @Ak335i, Proven Power, and proTuning Freaks.

        Nah. 1rst. Launch as hard as it will let me 1800rpm. It just crawls to the 330' or beyond. Check it 6.54 seconds to the 330' that's not spinning. Just sloooooowwwww

        Lol to someone who doesn't understand time slips, turbos or power delivery I suppose it is.

        Statements like that are embarrassing to yourself and you don't even realize it lmao

        It is a real bad 1/4 time but I'm sure @Ak335 was just showing the power he's making with that trap speed. Looks like times and traps i see from single turbo supras at the dragstrip

        It's easy to see it will do 10s very easily once it can launch.

        I wasn't going for ET. PPL kept asking for trap so I gave it a whirl even though the trans is bad as I'm taking it out anyway soon

        Awesome trap man! Def a roll racing champ, which is ok because honestly, no one launches daily on the street.

        The 6466 and AT just don't mix. Even with the weaker 5862 and more stall I'm struggling to get in the 1.9 range. Click here to enlarge

        keep it for roll racing, it needs a lot of preparation for dig race.
