When we last touched base with Lethal Performanceâ€˜s Whipple-supercharged 2015 Mustang GT, hot-shoe Jeremy Martorella ran a best pass of best pass of 10.53 at 135.81 mph at Palm Beach International Raceway. Over the weekend, Team Lethal was back at PBIR fine-tuning the combo and ran the car deeper into the 10-second zone.
If you arenâ€™t up to speed with Lethalâ€™s bolt-on 2015 Mustang put down 805 rear-wheel horsepower on the Dynojet at Power by the Hour in Boynton Beach, Florida, to the tune of 805 rear-wheel horsepower courtesy of a custom Lund Racing calibration.
â€œWe took our Whipple powered 2015 GT back to Palm Beach International Raceway for another fun night of racing,â€ Jared Rosen, of Lethal Performance, said. â€œLast time out we were pretty consistent with 10.50s but knew with some small changes and a little more seat time we could work our way deeper into the 10s. A few small changes in the tune from Ken Bjonnes of Lund Racing and a new Barton shifter and she was ready to rock.â€
You can watch one of the new drag passes right hereâ€¦
â€œAlthough we didn’t get the 10.33 pass on film we got this 10.40 pass and included the time slip so everyone can see how the car did,â€ he added. â€œNot only did we run a 10.33 in the quarter, but we trapped 109 and change in the eighth which is definitely moving. Unfortunately weâ€™re out of gear which is greatly affecting our miles per hour, so we hope to throw a set of 3.55s in before we hit the track again.â€
Certainly this isnâ€™t the last weâ€™ll hear from the Lethal project â€™Stang, so stay tuned as we bring you the latest updates to this combo right here on the Front Page of SVTP.
