Well, the GTR tip is probably the best idea I have seen on this thread. Not as nice as a daily driver around town in traffic, but if you are a racer it's hard to beat.

You guys are all child's play with these BMW's and M cars.

This is what real drag racing is about!

Quarter mile less than an hour, for sure!

This thread is turning hilarious, especially since none of us even have a M5!

But lets cool the talk. If I actually had an M5, I don't think I would want to run it either, even though it's doubtful that a mildly tuned 550 could beat an M5. But you should not underestimate what an experienced racer can do against a novice if the cars that is almost matched in power. Still, its doubtful that Badblack could actually outrun a M5 with just a tune.

I would do it if I had an M5. This thread is hilarious to me too. It's attracting non-M5 people from the other sections! Like people gathering around a fight during recess (yeah and I'm one of them)

You would win .... but it would still be fun. I was just googling the times and X6M is like 12.5s for 1/4 mile time. I've never taken mine though so I don't know for sure.

I do plan to take this thing to a proper track day sometime next year when I get new tires

I'm more of a road racing guy myself vs. drag but hey it's all fun!

Since the OP's point has been discussed since 8/28/13, I see no further need to keep this thread open.
