As stated above. 600hp and M x-drive makes for 3.2 second 0-60

There's a guy my way with a 335 x drive killing our streets. I don't know his exact 1/4 mile time but he ran a Jeep track hawk and beat him by a car and a half.

The Jeep was tuned

Are you talking street racing? If you are serious about any kind of drag racing why would you even be looking at BMW? Bang for the buck, Tesla in ludicrous mode, and I hate them FTR.

X5M/X6M is in fact F85/F86 lol

Come on guys...


Also OP any AWD with S engine that is tuned (s55, s63tu etc). Preference to lower weight. So x5m won't be my first choice, but it for sure can go sub 10 sec if you upgrade pistons/rods/sleeves.

Bpc just recently did 1500hp s63tu (not x5m, but same engine):

And the M2 is an F87. Point is, F8x is the AKA for the M3/4 amongst "most" forum members.

Is dig racing just another term for informal drag racing, or is it some kind of funky rolling start? And really, if you can't find s/t more exciting to do in a BMW than drag, you aren't being very creative.

How much is a used S63TU F10 M5 worth nowadays? Add to that custom rods/pistons/sleeves job and you have a 1500hp car. Bpc did it. I think there will be no Tesla in Ludicrous mode standing a chance on 1/4. Not even close. But it will really shine in 1/2 or even 1 mile race. What is current fastest Tesla S P100D record with striiped down interior lol and ludicrous mode and every bells and whistles available? 10.4 or something? I haven't checked how fast 1500hp M5 will go, but I'm sure it's sub 10. Just my opinion.

F90 M5 with AWD with same custom rod upgrade will be even faster (but so far it's price is a bit deterring).

I think we have a new winner in the 'wildest wheel/tire combo' department. Now if only they knew more about chassis setup to quell that dangerous stepping out at the 60' point.
