If you lose X pounds off a M3 then your 1/4 or 0-60 will improve by X seconds.
So far the only one I've heard was loose 100lbs and that should take off .1 on the quarter mile which is about 1 car length. Can anyone comfirm this?
Thanks a bunch!
100lbs = 1/10th of a second. In drag racing, especially with highly modified cars, a tenth is a lot. Jay
