    • Will Heffner Concede? UGR has the first 7 second Huracan and the new overall Lamborghini Huracan world record - 7.807@187.80

      Damn. If you are Heffner Performance what do you do now? If you are UGR you revel in upstaging Heffner yet again. This has been an absolutely amazing back and forth to watch. Heffner just took back the overall Huracan title with a 8.300 @ 176.19 pass only for UGR to snatch it right back.


      By breaking into the 7's no less and topping Heffner's trap speed by just over 10 miles per hour. That isn't just a new record. It's a beatdown and it sends a message. UGR is not to be challenged.

      To respond this quickly and improve their recent 8.55 @ 164.75 run by such an incredible amount is highly impressive. It not only shows UGR can work quickly they are determined to be the best at any cost.

      The 1.342 60 foot is spectacular and improves on their already impressive 1.372 from the previous record run. There is no doubt the Dodson built dual clutch transmission is flat out superior to the SSP built unit Heffner is running. Dodson simply has greater resources and offers superior dual clutch transmission parts just as they do in the BMW world and on other platforms. Heffner may be stuck as UGR has an exclusive agreement with Dodson.

      Will Hefner fire back? Can Heffner even fire back? We have a feeling this record is going to stand for a while.

      Wow. What a battle and what an incredible result.

        That is a big deal and smart of UGR. Probably good for the platform too honestly it forces Heffner to find another manufacturer to make products which creates incentive for both to keep improving.

        Heffner admitted he was only running his car at about 3/4 when he broke the last record, so this is no surprise.... Same story as when the Gallardo TT's were actually running the 1/4. At least this time it seems the times are being posted as they run rather than one upped back and forth from a drawer of slips.

        Really? Come on. You know better than anyone that different tracks in different parts of the country has more impact than anything here. The clutch will either hold, or it doesn't.

        He does have a bit of an axe to grind with SSP.

        You think that 60 foot being in UGR's favor from the beginning and Heffner launching harder and harder is due to tracks?

        The clutch may hold for a bit. It may not. Dodson's upgrade is more involved as UGR is running more plates and not just upgraded discs so what are you talking about?

        Plus I personally have experience with SSP's garbage work. Sending discs to be machined overseas isn't anything special. Neither is using people to get transmissions to work on.

        I'm glad Dodson has the record.

        This improvement is insane. Ludicrous ET and trap. Watch out GT-Rs....

        Lighter than a GTR with a bigger motor that revs far higher? And it has direct and port injection from the factory already set up?

        Yeah, the GTR never had a chance.

        I think their superiority at least in overall ET is largely due to the fact it's so easy to run drag radials at all four corners as opposed to on the V10 platform cars.

        ET is all launch.

        The Huracan sure looks to be launching fine already.

        Amazing what the dual clutch are able to do. Wonder if the air shifted sequential UGR used on their gallardos will make a difference.

        Careful there... Tony Palo's GTR revs up to 10k, and that car is hunting low ​7's

        Sadly, I'm still waiting for AMS to throw their hat in the ring with some built motor TT-V10 offerings.

        See this is the type of $#@! we need to get going with the E9X stuff, companies taking it to the track with serious race cars, and going back, and forth, not going back on forth on a forum.

        This is truly impressive, and must be so fun to be a part of!

        That 1/4 record is a joke. It will be decimated as soon as we get this AT GC car to the track. I am having to basically fully disassmbled the car to get it ready for No fly zone. Some very poor quality work was put into this thing. Found burnt coil wires twisted together, and taped, etc, etc. Soon as its ready to roll, we will take it. White car is undergoing a similar transformation currently, but it wont be ready in time for NFZ.

        Clearly I was referring to the stock redlines as not every GTR is revving to 10k but every Huracan is revving over 8k.

        AMS does do built motor V10's they just are pretty far back right now compared to these guys.

        Tony from T1 is doing impressive stuff with that GTR. From all accounts he is a really cool dude too.

        I mean, I don't know any stock motor GTRs or Huracan's chasing 7's. And while I've seen the dyno anti-lag video of the higher HP AMS build, they've only published stuff on stock motor builds with the Alpha 9 and Alpha 10 packages.

        I don't know what stock motor 7's has to do with anything. My point was the V10 is much bigger is designed for higher revs right from the factory.

        They have a built motor and built motor packages but they haven't shown dyno results: http://www.audiboost.com/content.php...onic)-upgrades

        Agree the V10 is a better starting point, but we're very very far from the OEM starting point--especially with AMS & ETS each releasing billet GTR blocks. And that was the video I referenced; pretty sure that car ran at TI in the Fall, but not really anything new since then. Like I said, unfortunate considering the AMS build quality and brand culture is top tier in the aftermarket community.

        Sure it becomes more throwing money at it but the V10 is still bigger and still comes in a far lighter car. Ultimately it will win. Look at what it's already doing in the Huracan.
