  • 0-60 run timed

    Played a bit with my new toy and did some 0-100 km/h runs
    I haven't managed to set the box properly up, so the horsepower figures might be not accurate (it's wheelpower). but the time anf the g-force reading are ok.
    The whole thing high lightes some other small things I neglected. Fixing my gear knob properly for a start
    I had the feeling there wasn't much grip on the road anyway and personally I never had done a "standing start"
    with the M3 as I am usually gentle to my clutch.

    Any comments welcome.

    Goodbye M3, you served me well.

    You are definitely a mechanical sympath.
    The numbers suggest that you don't brutalise the car like the comic book jockeys do.
    Can you get it to record in-gear acceleration?

      There is some software with the unit I haven't managed to use propely yet. I assume I download the data in the wrong way.
      The 7.2 sec to 62mph (100kms are 62mph not 60!) is still above the BMW figures for the standard 195bhp car. So some driver training is needed
      I don't want to overdo it it with standing starts, as soon weather permits I will do some non clutch related runs.
      Maybe 2000rpm to redline in different gears.
      Or what other figure would be of interest. I don't take it too serious, just like to play with all this gadgets

        Yeah Uwe.
        I was thinking of in-gear like 30-50 in second, third, fourth etc.
        In -gear overtaking in the top three gears.
        Standing starts are too abusive..... dropping the clutch at 6000rpm is not what the car is about.

          The E30 M3 drag launches fine, most people aren't very good at doing it is all
          A friend will come bail you out of jail, but a TRUE friend will be sitting next to you in the jail cell saying, "Dude, that was focking awesome!"

            The E30 M3 will launch like a rocket if you need it to

            They hook real well, just rev it to around 6k and slip/dump it.

              I am sure my time can be improved just by doing better starts. :OMG:
              But I don't want to abuse my brand new clutch to improve my personal drag racing skills.

                50-80 in 3rd would be good. Stan's best was 4.9xx and mine was 5.1xx. US 2.3's with US tranny.

                  Standing starts are really hard to get repeatable - well I certainly have problems getting good reaptable lauches on the hills and sprints.

                  With R compound Toyos, I use around 3,500 to 4000rpm and drop the clutch. You do still get some wheelspin, but depends on the surface.
                  With normal road tyres, I used 4,000 to 4,500rpm.

                  Uwe, I'm intersted in doing some basic logging on the hillclimbs - do you think this box would be usefull for me?

                    Steve, the next model up in the range is probably better suited.
                    But that's 399 plus VAT. I am sure with the version I have you could collect some useful data, but I am not sure if it's that userfriendly with sky high Adrenalin levels on the start line :p

                    Maybe when I have more practise with it I can tell you more.

                        Any info on how accurate this escort g-timer is? I have one in the box, my wife bought if for me but I just never got around to playing with it.

                        Team M3 is right, the car will launch HARD, but it's a very tricky dance.

                          Fixed my loose gear knob and did another run today.
                          6.44 from 0-100kms. Just under 6sec for 60miles.
                          I am quite pleased with that. But I noticed something with concerns me more. We have some roundabouts whith some straights between them. Loads of bikes use them on a Saturday/Sunday to have some fun.
                          I alway do some laps as well and after checking mey rear tyres I found the inside half to be hot and the outside almost COLD.
                          Looks like I have to get a 4 wheel laser alignment done to the measurements of the rears. I want to convert my rear axle for a long time now and nerver really bothered, but if the measurements are bad this will move up in the priority list.

                            I also see a colder inside rear temp after a sprint or hillclimb - I've got one of those infra red temperature guns - the inside can be 3 or 4 degrees colder than the outside!

                            The slightly lower Eibach springs has increased the negative camber a bit making the problem worse.

                              cold INSIDE rear? I thought too much camber will create a hot inside and a cold outside? My tyres are more worn insider, so I assume to much camber. I have recently lifted the back a little bit but didn't get new tyres. I want to wait for the alignment check first.
