First time drag racing in a supercharged z4m

80*+ heat and high humidity. Palm beach international raceway. Vt2-500 supercharged Z4M. Trap speeds were much lower than expected. Still ran a faster best time than the Gen 2 Viper GTS, who's best of the night was a 12.8@116. Lost the bracket semi-final race to a turbo civic by going .3 seconds faster than I've gone all night. Launching at 1500rpm, street tires at 28psi in the rear, very minor tire heating.

Supercharged Z4M first time drag racing
Updated with timeslips. Temp was 80*F+, humidity very high. Averaged 12.9s@112, best run at the end at 12.6@113.4. 60 foot times were mostly 2.1s and 2.2s, the best being a 2.0. Still ran a better time than the Viper's best that night. Have some work to do to bring up my trap speeds. Lost to the turbo civic in the semi-final bracket race by going too fast
