    • Ghassan Automotive breaks their own 6-speed N54 1/4 mile record turning a 9.637@143.66 in their E82 drag car

      You likely recall that Ghassan Automotive set the N54 platform 6-speed manual 1/4 mile record with a 9.82 @ 141.86 pass in their E82 135i drag car back in February. Since then they took the car to Texas 2K19 hoping to set another record but had a few setbacks.


      Well, they broke their record last night with a 9.657 @ 143.66 pass:


      Ghassan states they lifted at the 1000 foot mark due to vibration but their N54 crank hub solution works:

Possibly a wheel Balance or drive shaft
      The turbocharger is a Borg Warner 7274 tuned on an AEM standalone on ethanol.


      They definitely have room to improve still:
