SP Engineering smashed the Nissan GT-R 1/4 mile record with a 9.62 @ 148 mph pass. In this video Alex pilots the SP Engineering R35, and Hing pilots his R35 GT-R down the quarter mile.
Each car is modified with Greddy turbo kits, and a list of other parts to support 9 second quarter mile times. The breakthrough for the 9 second passes has been the work by several talented individuals working on decoding the stock TCM.
It would be good to see a 60 foot quicker than the 1.6’s . There is a fine balance, and an all wheel drive car always launches a little bit differently than a rear wheel drive car. I think that the times could drop into the 1.4 range with a little less wheelspin. A tenth in the 60 foot is worth nearly two tenths at the end of the quarter mile.
