    I know his car has red carpet, and in this pic it is not clear, thus I was curious.

    His 540 is faster.
    He beat a 996TT before in his 540 in drag race.

    Jimmy,

    You should come out to LACR once in a while. That is usually where I take my SC and bikes :D

    MCS=mini cooper S

    SC=single turbo sc300, supra brakes, tein suspension, 6spd :D

    the import guys have their big races there every year, 8, 9 second hondas and rx7s.


    But on wed and friday night you can run all night, not too much traffic for 20 bucks. Nice cold weather great for hi po cars :D

    If you ever see me say hi. :)

    Cool Jimmy...

    One day I might come and check out the 996 in person if you dont mind :eek:

    Senna, no doubt..one of the most stunning 360s on the road belongs to jimmy.
     
  18. I know his 540 is faster but how does the Ferrari feel at higher speeds, handling and pull wise etc. Great color combo the wheels are nice to.

    Jimmy,
    Saw your thread at the Ducat chat at speedzilla.zeroforum.com. Sorry that everyone is treating you like that. The flat tires are pretty much due to bad luck, although you should check to make sure that you are running correct tire pressures. The Pilot Sports are better handling tires than Metzeler's I have found, despite being told the opposite. Neither has any flat protection. I get about 1700 miles out of a set of a set of street tires before they need replacing so I would think that your tires are ready to go anyway. Hope this helps.

    The 540i is quieter (with an occational Supercharged Whine which I really like), it feels like 45 while doing 85.

    The Ferrari is indeed louder (thanks to Tubi) and very quick due to its light weight. I have not tried my 360 at the dragstrip, I will take some time to do so and post results.

    The only mistake I've made in buying the BMW a few years ago is that I didn't wait 3 more month to get a 6-Speed Manual (yes..yes..yes... all my 3 BMWs are AUTOMATIC, I've heard enough... :D)

    So... It took me a long time to find a 6-Speed 360 Coupe, and it's a good one too. Worth every penny. :)

    Thanks for the tips, as for some individuals at the Ducati forum, I'm really okay with them because the world is full of different level of cars, bikes and people. :)

    Just curious. What modifications have you made to your 540? What is the HP at the rear wheels? Quarter mile times? Thanks!
