DIY AutoTune Goes 7 For 7 At Ohio Mile September Meet – Seven Runs and Seven Records


DIYAutoTune's MegaSquirt 3-Pro 240SX Sets 7 Records in 7 Passes
#787 sings The Alphabet Song with records in classes AA, A, B, C, D, E, F… and F/BGALT
Atlanta, GA: Today, DIYAutoTune, an industry leader in feature-rich plug-n-play and professional engine management systems, announced that their #787 MegaSquirt 3-Pro powered Nissan 240SX returned from the East Coast Timing Association's Ohio Mile owning land speed records in 6-of-15 blown gas coupe classes and one in altered. The weekend's success marks 8 total records for the DIYAutoTune team with surprisingly more in their sights.
DIYAutotune CEO/ driver Jerry Hoffmann purpose-built the Toyota 3.0 Liter 2JZ-GTE motor specifically for the F-class, which has a maximum displacement of 3.014 L. However, no class rules prevent competing within larger motor classes, so the team decided to make a run for as many records as possible. The outcome was really astonishing: 7 new records in 7 passes, several in classes where purpose-built motors are more than twice the displacement! Here are the official race results:
Run      Class          Displacement (cid)         Displacement (L)         New Record/ Previous (mph)
1           E/BGC        184.00-260.99                 3.015-4.276                  204.64/ 166.63
2           D/BGC        261.00-305.99                4.277-5.014                  203.53/ 194.13
