raced a bmw m3 on saturday. we ran about 5 times from a roll and 2 from a launch. first time from a launch a tC tried to run with us
, i had a bad launch so the m3 was neck and neck with me till about the middle of 3rd gear and i am up by 3/4 car. we hit 4th and i won by about 2 1/2 cars. i think the tC quit at the end of 2nd gear cause he was like 8 or so cars behind and we were pulling away. the 2nd race was the same except we stopped when he missed 4th. the first race from a roll was a 2nd gear 30 mph we tied. we raced from a 1st gear 15 mph we tied. we actually tied every race from a roll our powerbands are exactly the same. the last race we did was on the freeway a 60 to 115. i won by 1 car.

That guy never said what year M3 it was. The WRX can outrun some of the fairly old M3s.

I highly doubt that.. my friend has an STI and another friend that has an STI they both raced a friend that has the 2005 ///M3 and they all were burnt by the ///M3.... i'm glad you won, maybe the ///M3 wasn't racing..?? and the tc.. we're not stupid.. we're not here to race 50 thousand dollar cars.. it was a very nice story though..

it was a 2000 m3 he said his car is rated at 260 hp and around the same torque. so he prolly puts down low 200 rwhp. we raced like 7 times and we pulled over to talk. he only had a shortshifter as a mod. it was not one of those hella fast m3's like you guys are thinking. we had well matched cars so we ran them a few times. all safe runs in the middle of nowhere. never went over 115. both of our cars handle pretty safe at high speeds. i post here cause i-club does not allow racing posts. most car forums do not allow them at all. this is a good site

Nobody is giving him any crap. He can post 80 million racing stories here, I don't care. We welcome anyone with a good attitude.

tCs are not hella fast. They're good for what they are, but they're far from hella fast.
