Doesn't feel like it would hang however.

My F355 ran 12.6 @114.2 stock. 12.4 @ 116.8 with weight reduction.
the M3 in the video has 4:10 gears and I'd guess a decent tune to match the exhaust, possibly 300whp?. A stock M3 would not be that quick.

btw, dragstrip =/= track. and there was already a comparison of M3 (E36) vs 355...

My post was in response to comparison of acceleration. E36 very well may handle better, I haven't driven one for about 16 years so don't really remember. Still, 1:18.3 =/= 1:21.6
