It’s that time again… DRAG RACE TIME! We’ve got Mat’s new daily driver, the new BMW M3 Competition, going up against a tuned Nissan Silvia S15!

Think it’s pointless? Well trust us, this will be closer than you think! Starting off with Mat’s M3, it’s powered by a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six which can produce 510hp & 650Nm. It drives the rear wheels only, and it’ll set you back about £75,000.

As for the Silvia, well it’s powered by a 2.1-litre 4 cylinder that’ll put down 600hp and 700Nm of torque. However, having bought the car for about £10,000, the owner’s spent about £65,000 on the build, so it’s also effectively cost him £75,000!

So, has the Silvia got what it takes? You know there’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

      At 0:27 the cc's say 65 Grand for the build. Is that a correct number? I couldn't really get it from the audio.

    I find it strange being happy in winning drag races, when all you do is stepping on the gas and letting fancy modern electronics doing the job for you. It's not satisfying at all. Same with braking test - what else did you expect from cars nearly 30 years older?

    Why the antics with the countdown? The whole point of a countdown is to synchronize. If you delay the "go," you're kind of just being an ass.

    The godfather of my daughter and best friend had an S14 K, I drove it, around 1150kg with 230bhp stock, that thing is a beast. First time I tried to "drive" the car I did a 360. First and only time I saw my friend shit his pants, well there was that time when we got lost on a road with rally cars and came in second, but that's another story 🤣 Ciao Raffa!

    75k for that Silvia you gotta be kidding me that car is worth around 20-25k I doubt he put over 20k so he’s only looking at around 45-55k. Porting out/restroking the engine around 5-7k, new turbo kit 6-7k, new transmission 5k, and perhaps new exhaust 4-5k so he’s really not looking at more than 50k.

    Other times you guys roll race to 170mph or more why stop at 118? I think it was because the m3 was pulling back after that. From what I saw on the first rolling race.

      So frustrating. Delays saying "go" and then when he does say go, he says it quicker than the intervals between 3 2 and 1. Man, be objective.

  54. luffararne

    Mat, the problem is actually you, NOT the gent in the Nissan! While not perfect he keep it somewhat consistent while you drag out the "Go" part, that is anything but fair considering how you have the advantage to begin with doing the counting so you're brain knows full well when you intend to floor it while he must wait for your voice, actually it is scientifically proven already that our brains register up to a couple of sec before we even speak or execute on intention, cannot remember what it's called and English not being my first language... But surely anyone interested could just Google the correct words and find the studies for themselves. Really should abandon your methodology and have a man out of the cars doing the countdown for you from here on, it's human nature to be competitive and trying to time the countdown to perfection, hence also cutting out some of that reaction time should you have only a simple "Go" without the countdown. Another suggestion, please get rid of forcing the competitors to specify what gear to use launching fro ma roll, too many variables that affect the result whether gearing, lag, small vs big displacement where a tiny engine may lack the torque to pull from low rev or any of the many reasons. So what to do, perhaps stick to your ways but also add a second race for each category where each person in each car may choose how to get the best out of the weapon they control. Just some to think about, many will have better ideas to improve further no doubt.
