Awesome I was curious what others were running. I was using a Gtech timer on closed road and have had 3 13 sec runs 13.62, 13.98, and 13.84. Usually it is near 14.0 or just over not bad for a few minor tweeks.

It's cool but I wouldn't put it in the same category.

New MINI Record to beat: 10.23 @ 142.53 MPH

Both of these cars are Turbo-converted R50's running Standalone ECUs without NOS (and a very long list of mods)...

Our Tuning partner (1320MINI) in the UK just set a new World Record for the Fastest and Quickest 1/4 mile run: 10.23 @ 142.53 MPH


The previous record belongs to another buddy of our - Hubie @ MegaMINI / ABF Performance: 10.4 @ 135MPH (set back in 2008).

Very nice. Can't believe this thread hasn't seen more comments or virtual thumbs up. I know this car isn't a straight line car but c'mon.

Can't believe a 640hp engine in a Mini could only run 10.23. But with the big mph, traction must be a factor. What is 60' time. I run a 3350lb car with only 550 hp and Ron 10.10 but only 130 mph. It is RWD.

Anyone know what the record is for the fastest "full body true mini " is ? Seams like someone over the pond had 12.4 with slicks and auto. Is that still standing ?
