New car; new runs

Just traded my modded G35 for a G37 7AT. I trapped ~101mph with it before I let it go. It was the most reliable car while it lasted, especially with the unrelenting beat down I gave it every day for 5 years. I was going to buy a 335 but I decided to go for 'proven' reliability. My friend has one and its truly a nightmare. Onto the runs: Ran a 2015 IS350 AWD from a dig to beginning of 4th. I had a passenger and he was alone. My tires were shot so he was able to edge me off the line. By the end, I was about half a car ahead. Also raced an 09 335 xDrive coupe. Couldnt get him off the line so we did a 1st gear roll. I got him by a bit less than a cars length by 100mph. The G37 has very decent top end as it breezes to 120mph nicely all stock. Videos to come soon.

I'm surprised you didn't pull a little more on those cars up top! Of course you probably would have pulled more on the IS if you didn't have a passenger. Those 335xi's are tough from a dig between the stupid off-idle torque and AWD.

I had an issue past 120mph for some reason. I would hit a 'wall' there and the transmission would hesitate to go into 6th/7th, I forget which gear, but now that's resolved. The 335 would put bus-lengths on me when he had the JB4. But these runs were just a few mods and no tune. Still fast nonetheless.
