Good kill Will.
You're going to have to update your time in your profile soon !

I noticed the 330 specs in the link showed 0-60 of 6.9 sec for the AWD and 6.4 sec for the std model. The weight showed 3500 lbs but maybe the AWD is heavier. That might explain the 1/2 sec accel difference.

Yessir.....I've been thinking about my times too. I'm betting he was AWD. I got a wee scratch of the line, but never heard a chirp from him. For a kid in Dad'* car, that was a dead giveaway he was AWD. I suspected that before I even looked it up.

I'll have to go lay out my 1/4 mile track again. My old paint marks are worn off!

Smoked him. He tried like hell, though. I could hear him wind it up. Even with the AWD, he couldn't hang. I burned off a little and still beat him across the intersection, and had him SOUNDLY spanked by the time the lanes merged to one.....about 300' from the light.

He got a good look at the badge on my trunk lid for the next 10 miles.

I looked it up just now to see what it was.......makes me wonder how I'd hang with the M3 now that I have a few more mods under my belt. Here'* a link:
