New 991 VTG 1/4 mile world record /By-Design




Well there you have it my car is now the official World record holder its been a long Journey those of you that have had 991's for years know the story. 3 years ago before any of us had turbo upgrades this was the fastest stock turbo car in the US and we ran 10.19. Then 8 months later we set a record again at 9.71 with Tial 68's ( the US record was Jeffs car with nitrous at 9.70 ) and then we smoked the PDK clutch before there was PDK tuning, Sam and myself then went down the rabbit hole of aftermarket clutch and engine build we did a lot of R&D with this car and we have come out the other side. Sam has been by me on this 110% and I want to thank him and Jon Bray and Cobb for there awesome platform and there are many other people who helped with this project. I have been out testing more times than anyone can possible fathom but its all come down to this I have run 4 events in 2 months with zero issues first 1/2 mile event we ran 178.5 gps, second 1/2 mile event we set the US VTG record at 180.1 this last outing we just ran the 9.38 1/4 mile world record. For those of you that have seen my video post I also ran a 9.49 while testing the other night these cars are awesome. Oh ya I hung the wheels in the air

Congrats on the accomplishment. I know there has been a lot of hard work and patience to make this all a reality. I can honestly say that effort tat Sam has put into this car and the drive of Mark to see this project through is truly astonishing. I have witnessed Sam's customer service first hand for the last year and his ability to manage his customers needs and can truly tell the world that I have never met someone in the aftermarket performance business that tries harder and puts more of an effort to satisfy their customers needs than Sam does. Mark has also shown a tremendous amount of dedication to see this through as well. You two make a great team and your times are a true testament to what this car is capable of.

Again, congrats to both of you guys. It is well deserved.

Congratulations Mark! It was a very satisfying day not only to get this done but to see the smile on your face which was so well deserved! It has definitely been a long journey and one thing led to another. We pretty much left no component un broken or untouched. I know I’ve said it 1 million times but I can’t thank you enough for your faith, patience and drive. The team and all the manufacturers/partners involved with the different components that we were able to upgrade/develop with your car appreciated also. I am so very proud of my team which is what By Design Automotive Group is all about. I’m proud that it is the same exact proven stage 4 package with 68mm VTG turbo chargers we were able to continue to develop on and stretch to this level and more. It was a pleasure to stand behind you the whole way! There are now a few clones running and right after the holiday 100 and 1200hp kits hitting the road. All behind your spearhead Mark. But we are not don’t wirh vtg power yet! I’m mainly grateful for the opportunity and I know there’s going to be much more from here now that the work is done. Getting the front wheels in the air after dialing everything in and actually being there to do it was just cherry on top! I missed it! We can do anything we want with this car now but I think we can challenge ourselves to do even better just the way she sits and I will guarantee you it will go faster. And damn that 0-60!!! The map is even loaded haha. Enjoy my friend and thank you again and congratulations again!

Craig, I appreciate those kind words and I can’t do any of this without all the amazing service and support from you guys! It started with a few pools on your amazing Dyno and now I pretty much live there. Another example of awesome friendships doing what I love. So grateful! Thank you! By the way I hope you’re hungry today buddy haha

Congratulations for pushing the limits of the 991 Turbo S. Crazy a 9.30 is very fast in the 1/4 mile for a road car. I love the picture of the front wheels leaving the ground.
