A good freind of mine has a 2000 360 Modena, the other day as we were speaking on the phone told me if I wanted to race. I said why not. ¿What do you guys think, his car is stock as you can see I have made various mod's to the M3?

PUR M3

what type of performance modifications are on the M3?

And the 360 Modena is stock? is it spider/ and does it have F1 shift. BTW. the 2000 Modena models have a slower F1 shift as thats when they were in the "showoff" software which blips the throttle as you downshift, making shifts a bit slower, thus affecting the upshift. so the 2000 software on the Ferraris arent that well written, if it was a 02+ then it would be different.

off topic here.. but PUR, u got any vids or sound clips of your car? you have the exhaust setup i wanna get!


Anyways, yeah, Ferrai will be a good race, you may run even with him, but his car SHOULD pull away at higher speeds.... not saying it will, but its very possible

If you can drive your car, you will beat the Modena.

Sport mode on, DSC off, SMG 6th position, rev each gear to 8,100rpm's, I think so too.

Thanks

Should be able to pull on him from 1-2, and maybe 3rd he will start to catch. Not sure about higher end speed as you don't exactly have the best top speed gears installed ;).

Seriously you will lose but you won't get blown out. A saw a video on another forum of an m5 vs 360 modena stock... M5 lost by 2 car lengths on a 4 mile stretch.

Sorry to tell u but you will be raped if he is a good driver. numbers are

400hp
0-60 4.3sec (3.9 or 4.0 is actual results)
1/4 12.6 (actual results are les than that)

Only thing you'll see during the race would be his exchaust nozzles. But his car cost 3 times as much and 2 seater true sports car. He is supposed to beat you bad, after all he paid for that extra edge.

I don't know guys. :dunno: I think it will be a closer race then we think. I read on another form about some guy running 12.7 i think on a stock m3 six speed but was supposed to be some race driver. How true the story is I don't know.

With Pur's mods I would have to say his diff is a big plus in his favor. So lets assume that Pur picked up 4/10ths of his 1/4 mile time just from the diff and take into consideration his other mods then its safe to say he can run a 13.0 or better. The 12.6 time on the 360 is rated proffesional testing also. Launching in s6 dsc off he can launch hard enough to take him on the get go.

I think pending on both Pur and his friends driving it should be one hell of a close race! Like sheefo2k said tape it cause I want to see!!

Btw Pur, I had emailed you a while back with some questions about your car. Pm me when you get a chance. Thanks.
