E46 M3 Vs Revo Stage 2 GTi

So I went against my friends stock e46 M3 with my stage 2. Mods are in my Sig.

First race was a 30 roll, I put a solid car length on him.

Second run was a 20 roll and he put a car on me.

Third one he got the jump on me since he was initiating the race and put a car and half on me.

All times I was in Sport mode with traction off. How do you guys think I can improve? Perhaps shifting faster in manual mode? The Dsg was reving all the way to 7400 rpm every shift.

I have vids I can upload tomorrow.

Shift before redline since you're boosted. You're way out of the power band after about ~6k or so.

And your car is slower.

Nice runs. Without the passenger you may have pulled each run, or been dead even. Was he 6 speed or SMG?

If DSG is so smart why does it not shift until 7400? You're making like 125 hp at 7400 haha

Manual mode, second gear, 20mph roll, go all the way to readline, even if you aren't making power up top, it puts you in the sweet spot in the next gear...i tried both shifting at 6k and letting it do the work...redlining yelled better results.

I have no idea, maybe my DSG is mentally ill. I'm gonna have to try shifting myself.

Hmm, this is all confusing, I guess my best bet is to Dyno it so I can see where my power starts to drop off.

Don't have a tune, and it did, I also tried recording the min/max with the torque app and Vag-com, sometimes it shifts at 7200 also at WOT. I'm gonna have to start shifting myself and get a dyno to check out my powerband.

i know. fuel cut on these cars is 7200 rpm... dsg in S shifts at 6900... so how you got an extra 500 is beyond me.

actually might be wrong on exact fuel cut... but definitely not higher than those rpms.
