Default 8.80 New 1/4 Mile WORLD RECORD

Set the 991 Porsche 1/4 Mile WORLD RECORD today. 8.8 @158mph.

Drove 2 hrs to the track, got in line and did one pass. World Record. Drove 2 hrs home.
Wasn't going to take my newly built ES1000 motor & Dodson clutch trans to the drag strip quite yet, but the weather and my schedule aligned. Plus I'm a 1/4 mile degenerate. It's what I like to do.

As I often say, "If you can turn, you aren't going fast enough."

Joe Santos & Ryan Kube at AIM Performance and Emre Levent stepped up (as they always do) last night and said "Screw it, SURE!". Emre tuned and dialed in the PDK launch control perfectly (remotely while on vacation!). You should have seen Ryan Kube doing launches last night in front of the shop and then sending data to Emre. O wait, I have a video of that! See below. lol. Then they mounted and balanced fresh MT radials on the fly.

Joe, Ryan and Emre are the best. Incredible work ethic. Thank you, boyz.
