From Jason...

Well, I was out doing some fine tuning on the Huracan today and found myself cruising past Bradenton Motorsports Park. I noticed that there were a couple of cars conducting testing so I stopped in and asked if they minded if I made a few passes. We had the car out last week and had run an 8.63 and an 8.65 but track conditions were pretty poor and the 60 foot just wasn't what we needed to pull of a really clean run. I made one initial shakedown pass just as i pulled in off of the street and ran an 8.82. I headed back to the pits and iced down the intercooler and headed back up. This time the 60 foot still wasn't right where I needed it but ran a promising 8.68 at 175 mph. After making a couple of adjustments to the launch settings I headed back up and right away I knew it was on a good pass. The car left the line noticeably better than ever before and laid down an 8.300 at 176.19 mph. I figured I would give it one more shot after that. Once again leaving the line with authority, the car was on a good pass. On the top end the car was feeling a little sketchy so I lifted a bit before the traps which killed the mph but the car still laid down an 8.304 at 170 mph!

I can't express how much fun it is to work with this Huracan platform. As i'm sure you can all see by how rapidly the times are dropping, the potential in these cars is huge. I'd really like to thank the guys from OB Prestige auto for choosing Heffner Performance to build these amazing cars, Ryan from Syvecs for his phenomenal support and Kris and Steve from SSP Performance for building us clutches that take whatever we have thrown at them.


Short video coming shortly.

Jason is not going to shit or freak out about anything.

He knew UR wasn't going to stop in the 8's or even now, high 7's. He was taking the car to the next level the moment he got the car back to the shop after the 8.30 runs.

He will be back at the track soon and the fun will continue.

Congrats to UR.

These H's with the DCT are just amazing. They totally skipped 10's and 9's and went right to 8's. :lolcry: how crazy is that? I don't think they are going to be in 7's for long....6's will be in the next 6mo or less.
