So i was taking my buddy for a ride tonight cuz he hadnt been in my car for a while, so we were headed home on the freeway after a couple quick punches when i see HIDs go flying past me.... so i drop it into 3rd to catch up and once traffic breaks me and this guy were on it...

i got behind for a second because of oncoming cars and i read DINAN on the left rear.... one of my friends dads has a SC dinan M and i know that thing is fuckin fast... but i thought whatever i was in the mood... It was a white M3 with for sure exhaust.... anyways i pull up next to him at 80 and he hits it so i slam it down and grab 4th and start to pull him nice and steady so with him getting a 3/4 car jump from 80-120 i had about 2 on him...

we line up again from a 70 and this time i honk it and on the third honk we both take off and i pull him like i was shot out of a gun... by the time i was halfway through 4th he was in my side mirrors and probably got out of it cuz by the time i hit 5th he was in my rearview... so he definatly wasnt SCed... but a fairly stout M...


thanks for the read

nice kill. m3s are nice cars, and the dinans are really sexy. they do come in different "stages" kinda like a roush or saleen. if i remember correctly the lowest stage has a tune, some suspension work, and maybe exhaust. the higher stages are the ones w/ the blower. nice cars, sexy as hell either way.

Nice kill. I don't know too much about those Dinans, but I do know they are no slouches. Definitely not shabby for an NA six cylinder.

Good run, good story. They are sexy cars but a little tame in straightline acceleration as compared to a LS1.

I wouldn't bet on it. In the hands of a good driver the E46 M3 is capable of mid to low 13's trapping at 105+ stock just like the LS1 F-bods. The highest stock trap speed I've seen is 107 but that was an excellent driver.

If a person has a stock LS1 F-Bod especially an A4 I definitley wouldn't take them lightly. Not alot of torque but that 333 hp screams at high rpm's. On top of that they weren't really meant for straight line performance.

Dinan is a suspension tuner. The most they do for the engine is air filter, exhaust, tune.

Can you please quit following me around and harassing me? I dont know why you do this shit but you really dont know what you are talikng about. An LS1 car is on a completely different level than a m3 in straight line performance and I think anyone could agree on that. You are ignorant about anything pertaining to automobiles and its starting to get annoying. Are you like 12yrs old and have nothing better to do than post ignorant bs on a forum you dont even belong on?

I agree that they are comparable stock to stock with an a4 but m6 f-bods have trapped 110+ and can routinely trap 107. I have also heard that they are pretty strong at high speeds because of their good aero traits.

How can two cars that are so close together in both et and trapspeed be on "completely different levels?"

i dont follow you around, its that your ignorance makes my head hurt every time i read one of your posts. you think you know alot about different vehicles, when in actuality you dont have a clue. you take this and make HUGE generalizations, that most of the time are blatantly wrong, and quite easy to disprove. dont make generalizations and you wont get called on them. haha you never did respond to my reply on the viper thread, good call on a viper "never being able to set a top speed record." theres full weight, irs, manual vipers in the 7s, making them some of the meanest street cars out there.

I dont remember the Viper thread, I guess thats just another thread you trolled yourself into because you have some desperate need to devalidify everything I say. And no a Viper doesnt and never will hold a land speed record, thats inarguable. Now as far as strip records, I have mad respect for them, they are nearly untouchable. I already stated that an ls1 vs m3 is a fair match stock for stock but who cares what stock cars run? I have never heard of A M3 taking down a competent driver in a ls1 car, and considering the massive amount of 10 and 11 sec ls1 cars and the fact that m3s are rarely ever seen doing much but road courses I would say that they are 2 DIFFERENTLY designed cars. The m3 is a badass luxury/handling car where as the f-bods were designed to kick ass in a straight line, I didnt state falsifications and i didnt insult either car so what the hell are you jumping my ass for. You need to find something better to do than trying to disprove my every word because it seems you dont know as much as you think and you fail every time.

BMWs are fast for their respective power levels since they have good top end and really well matcxhed gears. Definitely a good kill.

The thing with them is the difficulty in getting more power. Theres a slew of really great handling mods for the Bimmers for pretty reasonable prices. A well done E36 will humble even a pure sports car on a tight course. But to get much gain in power, its either expensive FI or expensive engine swap.

My fav. BMW shop by far is final testing an LS1 swap kit, which is actually why I came here years ago in the 1st place. A BMW with an LSX would be a wonderfull car in about every aspect. Except traction on a launch LOL. But they have 10 inch wide wheels on sale for that :devil:

I meant top speed sorry i didnt clarify, Vipers are nasty cars but dont have the stability at speed to match their acceleration. I usually post in a hurry so I leave stuff out sometimes. I have loads of respect for Vipers, especially after watching a Heffner car run at the track one day. It was nuts, and in full street trim!!

all can be fixed w/ some suspension work, just like any other car. what you think the t/a was on stock suspension haha

one of my good friends has an aaw blower on his 325 and it is a sick car! makes just under 400whp and somewhere like 360wt and when we run i always jump out on him cuz of my gears and he always pulls right back to my door....

he cant realy drive it though im sure with a good driver it would beat me

True the standing mile was probably with a body kit (Hennecy sp?) but F-bodys are not designed for 250mph speeds either without some aero mods.

Reading all the reviews of the 510 and now 600hp stock Vipers, they are VERY stable and confidence inspiring on the race track, hence beating the C6 Z-06 at 600hp and at 510hp before the Z06 had different rear shocks.

The Z-06 is simply awesome but I don't think there are design flaws in the Viper.

Back to topic, per another post of mine, M3s and LS1s go head-to-head in SCCA T2.
