Default LMR C7 Runs 7.5 @184mph!!! First C7 To Run 7's

Here is the full video of the record breaking day at Houston Raceway! This is not only just the fastest and quickest C7 but it is the first to 7's running a 7.55 @184mph. On top of that it is the fastest GEN5 LT Powered vehicle!

Agreed.... It just felt really good to run a 7 second pass, now we can really dial the car in and go deeper into the 7s.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

While the performance of this vehicle is spectacular, their approach to safety is no where to be found. That fancy driving suit will be of little good when an issue occurs at that performance level. And shame on the facility for allowing a vehicle to go down their track without complying with the safety rules that apply to a vehicle running that quick and fast. Rules are in place for a reason, even the " street outlaws " have common sense.

Safety will be addressed before car is taken out again!

Thank you sir! We try and stay at the top like we have for over a decade of being in business!

And yes, a cage and safety equipment are all being addressed at the moment. We do know it is not smart to race without proper safety equipment and do not condone it in any way. We just knew of a couple other shops shooting for 7s and wanted to be the first. Again, no excuse because it only takes 1 time......
