Meet the number one qualifier of the day...



The car ran a 10.70 right off the trailer. Hyundai is officially in the 10s. Check out IDRC at Importdrag.com to see more about the day. The link is here: http://www.importdrag.com/2006results.html

He didn't win in his class, but he would have if he didn't jump the gun on his last run. The 300zx he raced pulled an 11+ second pass. Not only was I stoked about it, running the first race since I sponsored a full CF hatch for it, but we were able to speak with VIS and give them the proposal that landed another full ride sponsorship for this beautiful hood. So are you guys stoked? We're in the 10's for the first time in the 10 years the Tiburon has been around, and this time it was a full fledged race even, and the tiburon didn't have two engines (SCC Mclintyre 1st gen).

Nobody has been able to pull it off, but with a built auto and a 4 cylinder motor APE broke the record again!

10 in an auto I4 is pretty impressive. Nice work on the car, thats when its all worth it I bet.
The 300Zx was 6spd no doubt.

the 300 was a 1991 so I doubt it was 6 speed. And the auto is fully custom built by APE to be stronger than the manual tranny, and it shifts at preselected points. Its SICK.

It is typical for people with little to no knowledge of drag racing to assume that a manual tranny is faster. Blame it on 2F2F, lol

SO, do you have a vid of the run? :)

That is great news for all of us Tib owners and the fact that it was done with a 4 banger automatic only makes it better. Lets see those engine pics!
