    • 8's soon? Iroz IMS850 8V RS3 runs 9.4@145 in 100+ degree weather at over 5000 feet Density Altitude

      Las Vegas is a lot of things but a place to set drag racing records it is not. Not to say it is impossible as that is exactly what Iroz Motorsport did with their IMS850 RS3 sedan. If they can run 9.4 in Vegas, they can run 9.4 anywhere.


      That brings us to the point of the run conditions. We are talking roughly 5200 feet of density altitude courtesy of 100+ degree desert weather. This is close to an 8-second pass in negative density altitude.

      What it really means is it is simply a matter of time and conditions. The power is already there.

      This RS3 is a built motor example with the IMS850 turbo kit. The rear seats and passenger seat were pulled. The head received work from Race Developments in the UK. The transmission apparently has prototype clutches.

      It would be nice for @HankIroz to list the full mod list when posting these slips instead of people having to guess or ask about each and every part which would save considerable time and help keep information correct.

      Congratulations to all involved and the enthusiast community eagerly awaits the upcoming 8-second pass.

        Why would you expect someone who is pushing the envelope to reveal all their mods/secrets? They don’t owe you, or anyone else anything. The proof is in the pudding, they are doing what others aren’t in worse conditions. Congrats Hank, and Iroz Team, keep your secrets to yourself as long as you can, keep everyone guessing.

        Yeah, as Tony said, it is tough to walk the line of informing the public and not spoon feeding the competition with what we have done. The competitive edge is so sharp right now in this platform, we want to make people work for their achievements! Thanks for the article! 8s shortly!!

        It was mentioned in a previous article but I forget, what was “built” on your car?
        rods and pistons, that’s it?

        amazing results! can’t wait to see you break into the 8’s.

        I don't. Details like if it was built motor or built trans are important to note.

        Nobody is asking for a copy of the software or logs but we need to be able to separate stock turbo, built motor, built trans, etc.

        RS3/TTRS have officially taken the "Euro GTR" crown

        (1) Insane stock turbo/stock block FBO performance
        (2) AWD + DCT

        Even though its a small car the RS3 has 33% more rear leg room than a GTR (The TTRS has almost 10% more leg room vs. GTR)
