221 mph Land speed record set by Jorgen Moller of RaceDeck, making the Dodge SRT-4 as "The Fastest 4cyl Production Car On The Planet."
Bonneville, UT (PRWEB) August 16, 2006 -- Jorgen Moller of Salt Lake City,Utah, a "Member of the prestigious Bonneville 200 mph Club" set his 5th land speed record this week in a Production Dodge SRT-4 Car. The record was set at 221mph average speed for both runs on the five mile course. To achieve a record you must run the same 5-mile long course twice, first you have a qualifying run higher than the current MPH record and then you must make a return pass and have a speed that when averaged with you first run, exceeds the existing record. On the first pass Jorgen piloted through with an average of 222.416 mph and then backed it up with a return run of 220.351 mph giving him the record." It was a great ride, the car was still pulling hard as I exited the mile with our GPS showing 235.86 mph and climbing," said Moller.
About the Car-The Dodge SRT-4 was running the PS/F class (2.1 to 3.0 liter motor --- production Supercharged /Turbo). This class is for vehicles that have not altered the body in anyway other than how it comes from the factory. The powerplant must be of the same configuration as was produced -- Engine size, transmission, driveline, etc) and must run on gas.
"It is amazing how well the car performed at over 220mph when you consider that the body,transmission and engine block is exactly the same as the SRT-4 you see sitting on the dealership showroom floor" said Moller..."You got a hand it to the Dodge engineers for building such a great performance car" he added. The car is a Dodge SRT-4 with a 2.4 liter (144 ci) Turbo Charged Motor with the factory 5-speed transmission which produces over 750+ hp on gas." The 2.4 SRT-4 motor is a fantastic platform to work from, we have been able to create reliable horsepower never thought possible with 700 to 800 hp that survives the long 5 mile runs at full power and speed on gas!" said Moller.
