      APR Australia's Street Legal Golf R just made several 10 second quarter mile passes at Willowbrank Raceway, an Australian National Drag Racing Association Ltd certified track.

      This vehicle is street legal in Australia and spends most of its time either daily driving or dominating on the circuit as seen in Motor Magazine. This is not a purpose built drag car.

      The vehicle is equipped with the following power modifications:

      APR Stage 4 Turbocharger System with GTX Turbocharger
      APR ECU Upgrade
      APR Built Motor
      APR High Flow Head
      APR High Pressure Fuel Pump
      APR Intercooler System
      APR RSC Turboback Exhaust System
      APR Low Pressure Fuel Pump System
      APR Carbonio Intake System
      STOCK GOLF R INJECTORS

      It's running on 18" VWR Wheels and MT Drag Radials and Sunoco GT+ 104 unleaded fuel.

      The vehicle is at full weight minus the rear seat.

      Do we have a new world record on our hands?

      that car could run under 10 if the RT wasn't so high

      RT doesn't matter. Timer starts when the car moves.

      Some believe a harder launch from the DSG would improve the time and they may be right.

      If Guy lightened the interior, it would be much quicker.

      Lastly if we bumped up the octane, power would increase and times would be better.

      Sunoco 260 GT Plus is 104 Octane (R+M)/2. (110 RON / 98 MON). We wouldn't want to run leaded fuel. Shell URT is supposedly equivalent to C16, and unleaded. It would be interesting to try to say the least.

      We'll see it on the market. We're going to make it a nice packaged solution. When the time comes, I'll release the details.

      Is this gonna be a bolt on solution ?

      Or does one need the APR software ?

      Yeah, I don't want to hold anyone up. It's simply not ready yet.
