9.83s to the 1/4 Quarter Mile - RK Autowerks G80 M3

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey guys,

We've been making some minor tweaks to the tune and got down to 9.83s @ 141.64 mph last night. Ran a 5.44s 60-130mph, as well.



Video here:



This is our shop car and has the following mods:
  • RK Autowerks Downpipes
  • Stage 2 Tune - Utku Noa Performance
  • Built Gearbox - Pure Drivetrain Solutions
  • Race Gas
  • Full weight
  • Stock wheels and tires (PS4S)

The gearbox was built preemptively for future plans. Currently, we're developing our full line of parts for the G8x platform. We'll start machining our billet intake manifold with port injection in the next couple of weeks, followed by our port injection system for the stock intake manifold, turbo upgrades, methanol kit, upgraded heads, forged engines, and more.

Keep watch on Instagram for the latest updates on our G8x development.

Whoa 30 psi? how reliable is this tune, like, it's aggressive for breaking records or it's something for the daily?

Edit: Actually 33 or so right? it's being shown in the top left corner.

That's the absolute, you should subtract 14.7 from the atmospheric pressure, no way they are doing high 40s with the stock head and stock turbos.

Question is: how do we get that tune? Still unlock via sending ECU to Russia?

The G8X platform marches on - well done!

Wonder what the 6MT could do with the same mods and a transmission that can handle the power/torque.

I had a FBO F80 running full E85 via a Fuel-It! port injection kit and a custom tune by the legendary Cary, but all the power felt a bit lifeless and numb because of the DCT. I have never driven a high horsepower manual.. wonder how the G80 would feel with all this power and a manual 🤔

What does "built gearbox" mean - upgrading to an existing ZF tc gearbox?

There is a reason most high HP applications swap to an auto... Big power stick shift cars are a handful once you get up into the 750+ range (unless you are running super fancy ecu with true tc).

Must've missed it! The 2nd gear launch threw me off. That's incredible.

Nice.
So you confirmed the S58 platform is able to be moded to over 700 HP and G80 drivetrain is able to handle it for a short time. You also proved such a nice job you did. Finally you proved how fast a tuned G80 can reach 1/4 mile.
The question is if this car can run up to 50k before the engine/gearbox/differential blow up!
Is this ZF8 rated to that power?
Beside the straight line, is this car able to run over the corners? I mean is this suspension designed for this power?
Anyways good job 👍
