It’s Wednesday night in Sydney and if you’ve got the need for speed there is only one place to go, that’s ‘Race for Real’ at Sydney Dragway.

We were heading out to continue testing on Grimace (see his results here) but also to catch up with a few customers, Moey in his BMW F82 M4 and Ben in his BMW X3 M Competition.


Moey had been enjoying a lot of ‘roll racing’ as of late and wanted to give launching a go. It was his first time on the ¼ mile and was open to learning as much as he could. With so much power he was struggling quite a bit with wheel spin – spinning his way down the 800m strip to low 11 second passes.

With some guidance from Ozzy on how to get some real temperature in the tyres for hopefully more traction. In the end Moey got rid of ‘some’ wheel-spin and managed to squeeze into the 10s!


Ben had recently just fitted an O-SPEC Midpipe and had a custom TUNE+ ECU tune with us. Wanting to see what the improvements would translate to down the quarter; he was keen to get in as many runs as he could. Run after run he was getting faster, only to finish up with a mid 11second pass! Not bad.

We have actually had Ben back through the Werke-shop since for a RWD/2WD software upgrade and fine-tuned his TUNE+ Custom ECU tune for more overall power and a slight shift in the torque curve. Now, Ben will be able to warm his tyres up and get off the line a little quicker and hopefully bring this time into the 10s.
