    • Ventura Motorsports top mount single turbo 335i vs. three supercharged E92 M3's

      Interesting races here showing supercharged M3's going up against each other as well as a Ventura Motorsport Comp Turbo 6465 top mount 335i. The three M3's feature superchargers with the white 6-speed E92 M3 featuring the Active Autowerke Level III supercharger kit and the other two M3's running Gintani superchargers. Although the 335i has the most power and torque of the group, the M3's show just how quick they are at speed.

      There is more to a race than just peak figures as the shift speed, gearing, area under the curve, and redline of the M3's work to their advantage on the highway. The following is in the words of Ventura Motorsports and the owner of the 335i:


      Had a great time last night meeting some new people in Mexico. It was an impromptu meet so I didn't get to take any footage from my car . We are going to set something up in the next couple of weeks. I'll be ready with mounts and cameras etc.

      White e92 M3 6speed Active Autowerke level 3 SC kit
      Laguna Seca e92 M3 6speed Gintani Stage 2+
      Red e92 M3 DCT Gintani Stage 2+

      All M3s are running 91 octane and Meth. I am running e40 blend 100% Meth and Map 7 23 psi.

      They are very, very quick. Surprised me more than I thought to be honest. Everytime we started second gear rolls, they would get a good jump and I would play catch up. It would be hard for me to catch up though. 3rd gear rolls though I would move out pretty well, once I hit 4th gear It was over. Everyone seemed to be in the 580-600whp region. I dynoed 627 whp on Map 7 with this trim.

      That flatline shift bog @aflatau really really hurts, it's not even funny. I've notice if I switch at 6800 rpm, it does not bog. I will have to do more testing.



      First and second race is Second gear roll. Red Vs White M3

      Third race is Second gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. Spun pretty hard and once I hit third gear I guess it kicked me into map 4

      Fourth race is second gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. I didn't realize I was kicked down to map 4 in this race lol so yea 12 psi run.

      Fifth race is third gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. Map 7 23 psi Good run here.

      Last race is all of us, second gear roll just for fun lol.

      There are more runs and vids from the other guys. I wish I had more to post up. Looked like the level 3 AA kit seemed to be the fastest of them all. In the end, we all had a blast. Nobody cared who's car was the fastest. I can't wait to hang out with these guys again.

        That shift bog really makes me sick. Have you thought about wiring in a wotbox for NLS? I know the JB4 has that feature but I believe @aflatau had issues with it.

        I don't think it would make a difference between what @Terry@BMS is doing. The reason Aflatau and I don't NLS is because we're spraying meth. Don't want to cause a blow out during shifts.

        I had terry make me a firmware that disabled meth spray during the WOTshift. Seemed to help.

        Yup, same issue I will be facing. I hope someone can come up with something. I feel I will be losing some match-ups come October at Pocono because of that.

        I lost all the logs and firmware I had when my computer died or else I'd give you everything I had. I was a G5 alpha tester and was doing my own testing on post shift timing dropouts. When we disabled meth through the shift post shift timing improved for sure.

        @fastgti69 can confirm but I think all the runs he did in the video were against a DCT equipped M3.

        Yes, I lined up with all the cars. Pretty much any second gear rolls wouldn't do me good. Third gear rolls I did back to back with the laguna seca. I would be pulling every single time.

        You may want to edit out your tag from that video @fastgti69 - it can be clearly seen at the 2:24 mark. I've heard too many stories of cops knocking on peoples doors and taking them to jail over $#@! like this. Nice runs!

        They were better at second gear, their LSD and having much better tires than me lol. Whenever we did third gear rolls non of them had a chance to be honest. I'm ordering some slicks and gotta get LSD next.

        dammit missed the flame LOL

        kinda want an S65 over N54 just for that noise, i mean damn they crapped all over the N54 in that department haha

        love the reaction of the 5th race though.. as soon as you shifted 'woah'.. and it certainly didn't sound bad at least... and flames are a bonus.

        also the fact this is relatively low boost/moderate power.

        sigh.. Y U HAVE TO SOUND SO GOOD S65?!
