Default vs. 2008 +/- BMW M3

So yesterday driving on the parkway I happened to be at a light next to some rich kid with 2 cute girls in a BMW M3.
When the light went green I flexed on him a little bit and as luck would have it the next light about 250 yards down the road went yellow.

As we are both sitting at the red light I notice he is beginning to roll a little in anticipation of the light changing to green. When it does we hit it and all 3 of them look my way so I know it's on!

I have the 5.7L with 3.92 rear end and when I hit it I got a burst that left him behind immediatly. While I was pulling away I looked left and saw him mouth "WOW!" lol!

I reached out the drivers side window and pointed to the custom badges on the side of my door that read "345 HEMI"

My wife says I'm childish... but man was that fun!

Yeah, I have to call driver idiocy on the M3s part, that car will smoke our trucks with even a moderately good driver as the power to weight ratio is WAY too far in their favor. Only some major engine mods would put our bricks in the same category with someone who knows how to handle an M3.

Maybe the kid likes big girls and they were weighing him down....

I think it was about a 2008 or so.
It was one of the 4 door sedans.

Maybe he didn't give it all he had because he thought he could win easily, but truth is I could have given more too

2008 M3

Torque: 295 ft-lbs. @ 3900 rpm
Horsepower: 414 hp @ 8300 rpm

2011 Ram 1500

Torque: 407 ft-lbs. @ 4000 rpm
Horsepower: 390 hp @ 5600 rpm

And that is with the 3.55 gearing, I have the 3.92 with LSD.

I'm pretty sure the M3 isn't getting near 8K RPMs in a short 0-60 race off the line.

You guys don't give our trucks enough credit, Coming off the line they have alot of jump. I pin people in the seat with my gas pedal!

Probably wouldn't be able to hang in a quarter mile but I really like shocking people when it takes off like a rocket!

You are also forgeting that your truck weighs 5,900lbs and you lose almost 70-80 hp/trq from that number when you put it to the wheels. The power to weight ratio is abysmal when you compare it to the M3's with a curb weight of 3,200lbs and a more efficient drive train that loses only ~40hp and 45ft-lb. You may launch off the line quicker with the 3.92s, but it will kill you in anything more than an 1/8th mile. As a drag racer I know the strengths and limitations of these trucks more than the average owner.
