Congratulations to Chris Tetsos – More World Records!
Chris from Ontario has already held the ATS-V 60 to 130 mph record of 5.53 seconds for the last three months. Now he holds the ATS-V eighth and quarter mile records as well!
Chris made five quarter mile passes this weekend at Toronto Motorsports Park, and we turned the boost up a little more with each pass.
- 48 6.42 @ 109.3 mph 10.03 @ 136.9 mph
- 40 6.23 @ 111.7 mph 9.75 @ 139.7 mph
- 40 6.14 @ 113.7 mph 9.61 @ 142.1 mph
- 38 6.12 @ 114.6 mph 9.56 @ 143.2 mph
At this point there was a storm coming in and they turned off all track electronics due to the threat of lightning after Chris’ fourth pass. He went ahead and made his fifth pass anyways using Dragy, which was proven to be extremely accurate.
5. 40 6.05 @ 115.0 mph 9.45 @ 144.3 mph
We have received countless emails and messages lately requesting the mod list, details and parts pricing for this car. Chris runs the Tapout Brown Belt Performance Package, Tapout remote tune, E85 fuel, some weight reduction and drag wheels and tires. The Brown Belt package hasn’t been officially released yet. However, it consists of our Purple Belt Performance Package, plus Caddy Issues turbochargers, ARP head studs, Tapout camshafts, valve springs and retainers. Purple Belt mods run ~ $4,100, and Brown Belt will most likely cost an additional $8,300. So total cost is approximately $12,400, or less if you already have some mods in place.
Chris did all the installation work himself. Jorge Munoz and Jeremy Stillman also deserve tons of credit for all the excellent guidance and advice they provided remotely, late into the nights.
We are really excited to see what Chris and other Tapout Brown Belt Performance Package cars can do once we turn them up all the way. Follow us as we shoot for eight second quarter mile times later this year. If you’re not a believer yet, just step aside so we can get the job done.
