your car feels great ! gave me the butterflys. your take off felt like my cousins performance model 3 possibly quicker. :) (y)
I even just switched over to map 3 this morning. Feels strong but not like the e85 mix. I just had one little splash of Boostane left so figured I’d use it lol

You're forgetting that they're starting at 4, so gear selection is going to factor in as well. I'd be curious if you still got the same result from 0 (assuming traction is there).
We can give it a try this weekend. But when we did his lowering springs you can clearly see his rear tires are starting to chunk a bit. So equal traction will be near impossible lol

Ok. 1.5 car lengths is smoked in my book...especially when clearly seeing their front bumper in the rear view.

To add...I said 60 mph...not 130.
Hence why I have the 60mph number there for you too. Lol. But to each his own. "Doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning is winning"

Oh I meant your car. I figure bombing it off the line may cause some wheel spin from the added power. I manage to spin tires at times and mine is dead stock

Luckily I can run boost by gear so I basically run stock boost in first. 1.5 psi over stock in second and 3 over stock in third then after that hang on tight haha

How do you manage that? I know we can set boost by RPM but even with v12 I see nothing about boost by gear.

When you are in that same page for those setting scroll down a little bit. You will find a spot to input values for 1st 2nd and 3rs gear. Just enter a plain value no negatives The value you enter will hold that much boost in those gears. So map3 is up to 6 psi over stock. If you enter 6 for 1st gear then you will only get stock boost in that gear. It’s not any help for the awd cars but it’s a massive help for the rwd guys like me. At the bottom of the pic attached is the boost by gear options

Yes they are my values. For map 5. My draggy just came in today so I’m sure they will change once I get a chance to use that To dial my 0-60. For now I use the jb4 timer which isn’t 100 percent accurate since I believe it’s a 1 foot roll out but it still lets me see if I get any improvement with my settings

so wait a min. So 6.0 in first would seem to be stock boost plus the addl 6lbs and 3.0 for second would be 3lbs plus stock.

Correct. I’ve noticed if I run more than stock boost in first gear I don’t get any traction
according to all the BMW JB4 threads you put the max you want. If you put 6 you would still get stock boost. If you put 3 It would still be stock.
so if you want 12 lbs in second then put 12

I’d have to take another look on the n54 tech page but I thought it stated enter the value of boost you want the tune to hold out of that specific gear.

Luckily it’s in the first post. So the value you enter is what you will reduce that gears boost by. So using round numbers. If you have 20psi and you enter 5 for 1st gear then you would get 15psi. This is my understanding of how burger tuning has worded it.
maybe it would be listed as boost “reduction” by gear 😂

I only loose a bit of traction in first since it is still in the 70‘s here. I’ll try dropping first by 6 lbs and see what happens.
