VTG recently visited Materialmord Racing in Schneverdingen, Germany with their Evo VIII project for some dyno time. There the turbocharged LSx V8 made 1239 horsepower and 1877 Nm (1384 lb-ft) of torque to the rear hubs. Before visiting the dyno, the team went to Grand Prix Polski where the car went 8.227 sec at 278.63 km/h (173.13 mph) in the quarter-mile (video below). Earlier this year it went 8.09 sec at Santa Pod Raceway.

      what kind of track did STM run on? Germany has (to my knowledge) a single real drag racing facility, all other races are held on former airport runways. Makes heaps of a difference.
