Turbo 4G63 Dragster Runs 6.85 @ 195mph

Remember last summer when we watched the 4G63 (read: Mitsubishi Eclipse engine) powered dragster go deep into the 7′s in the quarter mile at 190 mph? Well this year it runs 6.85′s and 195. According to math, science and history, that officially makes this thing sickly fast, and a new record holder.  The guys at turbo4.com deserve a round of applause for really pushing the limits with this engine, and the car that it is strapped into.  Amazing work as always!  Now let’s see what 200mph looks like!

What goes down the 1320 in 7.04 seconds at 190 mph?

A 4G63 turbo powered rail car of course!  I know, I know, you are probably all like “Hey enough with the Mitsubishi power drag cars already!” My response to you is “Share some new, exciting, and unique non-mitsu powered stuff with me and I’ll post ‘em up!

Now, I really should have far more details about this car due to it being a local guy, its sheer awesomeness, the hottness, the quickness, and its immeasurable good looks.  Unfortunately I don’t at the moment.  If this video gets a positive response though, I will be sure to get all the details, have a real write-up (not just a quicky like this) and so much more!  This car has been many years in the making, so seeing it nearly dip into the 6′s while knocking on the door of 200mph is just plain sick.  Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do.

Each week, Tony and I like to post up some cool / funny / impressive automotive videos that we come across. Here are this week’s!

Tony – “As a guy that grew up watching the Munsters, and being a huge fan of the Munster hot rods, this is my pick for the Friday video. It’s pretty darn funny!”

Jeremy’s – “I like loud, obnoxious engines. Hence, today’s video.”
