    I know sac has been recalibrated but to call atco fast is retarded, it is one of the slower tracks. Mir cap and Cecil are all faster. Hell if atco is fast Steve needs a compression check ASAP.

    people run 18+ these days with meth and e85, well over 400 hp i have yet to see a non-FI M3 beat a current setup FBO N54
    Of course you can only push the NA motor so far. You would need to increase displacement to get 450+ whp.

    Doesn't change the fact that's a mildly modified M3 with no turbos, no forced induction, just all motor natural aspiration. One is more impressive than the other.

    Considering how many records have been set at ATCO I think that also speaks for itself regarding the quality/speed of the strip.

    Atco in march and sept/oct will have good DA, other than that its a normal track. look at dates when they set the records.

    The zo6 you speak off was done at MIR, the current street legal coyote...also MIR. Like I said atco is the slowest of the 4 tracks I mentioned. I have been to all of them.

    DA is basically the most important factor for record times and ATCO gets spectacular DA. MIR does too.

    Point being that was mentioned that you are glossing over is the negative DA the East Coast tracks get. And ATCO has its fair share of records, once again...

    Results speak for themselves. Trying to talk about the east coast tracks like you know or ever ran at them is kinda funny. Here's a tip, if you ever race here and want times go to Cecil MIR cap atco in that order.

    I ran 11.98 at 120 atco is negative DA. Went to Cecil 2 weeks later is DA that was 500 feet worse and went 11.78 at 121. Nothing in the car changed. Full weight pump gas stock tires. One week later in the same Da as Cecil I went back to atco and ran 12.0 at 119. Once again nothing with the car changed. Went to cap and ran 11.82 at 120.9 in Da within. 100 feet of Cecil. Hmmm

    If only there was a database of timeslips to reference that also showed the DA. I wish something like that existed.

    There was, Bren hit similar numbers I believe. He trapped 118 something like that.

    And recently some other car hit 11's I think.

    not in the same run, ie spinning.. or do you not support that theory any more?

    11's @ 115-116 for the others

    i ran 115 100% stock in neg DA, same day ERM ran 131 in his ess 625. since then i went FBO and only did 112 there in "normal" weather

    todays results

    13.6@109 2.2 60'
    13.3@110 2.4 60'
    14.4@111 4.4 60'
    12.4@112 1.9 60'

    i forgot how to set LC for the first 2 runs and did the smash method, the 14.4 i redlighted because LC rolled me forward
    12.4 was only clean pass and i blew the X pipe off the headers.. not sure how that happend.. VERY LOUD
    The last run here is realistic to me and shows what a stock m3 can do...

    Help me understand...

    LM Trapped 112 last night as his best case scenario.
    He trapped 115 in a better DA.
    And he trapped 117 with better DA, bolt ons and tune?

    Is this correct? Those are definitely not bad numbers but they are mediocre at this point by FBO 335i standards... I would want to see a stock 335i run on that track to see what it traps for comparison.

    Lm trapped 115 in good Da modded. Yesterday he was modded with average Da and trapped 112. I don't think he ever hit 117 NA. My 135 went 13.6 at 102 stock. I witnessed a stock 335 in negative da go 13.5 at 103 with a stepteonic.

    Atco when you rent it and pay for full prep has incredible prep... thats what I think the best thing about that track is... DA's are good but I see faster times come out of cecil (350z world guys have all records there) MIR is quick, and whatever track in Fla that AK goes to seems quick as well...

    ATCO is a very fast track in the same way all East Coast tracks get fast when the weather makes them fast.

    Is MIR fast in the summer? In 100 degree weather? I don't get why you are having trouble understanding the reasoning for what makes these tracks fast in the first place.
