Lethal Performance- First 2010 GT500 in the 9's!

Well we finally got to make it out again last night. The weather was nice with air temps in the upper 60's. We had our minds set on that 9 second pass. Our driver Jeremy Martorella from UPR had the car prepped and ready to go. After the burnout box Jeremy pulled the car up the the line. With a very nice launch and an awesome 1-2 shift it looked like a great run until the car for some reason nosed over for a second about 100ft after the 1-2 shift. It looked like the car stalled from behind and at that point we all thought that the run was junk. Jeremy stayed in it and the car looked like it moved out real nice down the rest of the track. We expected to see a 10.40 or so flash up on the board but instead it flashed a 9.97@143.98mph. I was amazed that we still managed the 9 with the "stall" issue. Had we not experienced that I believe we would have seen a low 9.80 pass. Not the best run but indeed the first time a 2010 GT500 has ever been in the nines making the Lethal Performance 2010 GT500 the fastest 2010 GT500 in the country. Unfortunately we weren't able to make another run because it started raining and got nasty. So with a nine under our belts next stop for us is 9.60-9.70's with the current setup. Then we're going to do a pulley change and work our way below 9.50.

 

None the less is was an awesome night out with family and friends. Huge thanks goes out to Jeremy Martorella from UPR Products for not only propelling our car into the 9's but for everything else he does for us. Thanks bro!

 

I also want to thank everyone else for coming out and helping with the car. Derek, Jessica and Chris. You guys are the best.

 

Last but not least a big thanks to all of the companies that provide us with the high performance parts that it takes to make this car go fast. Whipple Superchargers, Al Papitto of Boss330 Racing, Jake@ Power By the Hour, Fore Precision Works, UPR Products, Jon Lund of Lund Racing, BMR Fabrication, Revan Racing, American Racing Headers, Steeda, Driveshaft Shop, Bogart Racing Wheels, Project 321, Mcleod Clutches, Moroso Performance, Thump RRR Racing and Torq for the sweet GoPro HD Cam. Thanks guys!!
