1995 Eclipse GSX 11 Second Run Plus Pictures
Clicked off a few more 11 second passes the other night. Car gets driven
all of the time, just recently made a straight 12 hour trip non stop
without a hiccup. It's still the stock 145k mile block and stock
transmission. You take care of your dsm and it will take care of you.
2014 Shootout 9.58 @ 155mph Semi-Finals QS32
First time out on the new setup nets a new best of 9.58 @ 155mph with a
less then ideal 1.72 60' time. With more Boost and a much better 60', the car should
dip down closer to the goal of 8's.

Tony Marx 90 Talon TSI ECSO
First time out for the season Tony dips past his previous personal best
with a 11.15 @ 127 on the SC6152 with only a quick base street tune on
ECMlink SD. Tony is just a better 60' away from the 10 second barrier.
Unfortunately, mechanical issues cut his day short and left a whole lot
left on the table.

10.0@132 Evo Stock turbo World Record DynoTech Tuning Dynotech Tuning built
Evo 9 came out to the '12 DSM/EVO Shootout looking for the stock turbo world record. They claimed the record and
almost touched 9's! Some more seat time and high 9's should be a breeze.
Impressive for the cars first track appearance.
