#787 sings The Alphabet Song with records in classes AA, A, B, C, D, E, F… and F/BGALT
Atlanta, GA: Today, DIYAutoTune, an industry leader in feature-rich plug-n-play and professional engine management systems, announced that their #787 MegaSquirt 3-Pro powered Nissan 240SX returned from the East Coast Timing Association’s Ohio Mile with 7 records in 7 pass attempts. The weekend’s success marks 8 total records for the DIYAutoTune team with surprisingly more in their sights.
DIYAutotune CEO/ driver Jerry Hoffmann purpose-built the Toyota 3.0 Liter 2JZ-GTE motor specifically for the F-class, which has a maximum displacement of 3.014 L. However, no class rules prevent competing within larger motor classes, so the team decided to make a run for as many records as possible. The outcome was really astonishing: 7 new records in 7 passes, several in classes where purpose-built motors are more than twice the displacement! Here are the official race results:
Run Class Displacement (cid) Displacement (L) New Record/ Previous (mph)
1 E/BGC 184.00-260.99 3.015-4.276 204.64/ 166.63
2 D/BGC 261.00-305.99 4.277-5.014 203.53/ 194.13
