    • First 160+ trap McLaren 720S - Dyno Spectrum tuned M840T sets fastest platform record with 9.054@160.54 1/4 mile pass

      Dyno Spectrum just set a new fastest record on the McLaren 720S M840T V8 platform with a 160.54 mile per hour pass in the 1/4 mile. As a reminder, this tops the former record of 159.55 set by a Labworx tuned example that was the first to break into the 8's.


      It is important to note this new record was set on the factory 720S turbochargers but with nitrous. How much nitrous? We don't know but it sure seems like quite a bit. Dyno Spectrum won't tell us

      This is a car running in high elevation in Colorado:


      Congratulations to all involved on the new record and the first 160.X trap:

        Its not that simple when you're factoring in big boost and nitrous.... If the turbos can compensate for thin air and the car is limited by another weak link the chain the DA difference can be almost negligible.

        Regardless, excellent time and trap. I don't know what the 'true' street car record is at Bandimere, but this has to be close to it.
