Jeff Lutz’s Mad Max Street-Legal Camaro Sets the World Quarter Mile Record at 5.87 Seconds

The Jeff Lutz Camaro Offers More Power Than We Originally Thought

Updated November 4, 2018

Jeff Lutz has been dancing around the sub 6 second quarter mile mark for a while now. Hot Rod Drag Week this September was especially grueling for Lutz who never managed to break the magic barrier even though he has won the event. As of November 10, 2016, however, he’s finally become a proud owner of the new world record of 5.87 seconds while passing at 251.34 mph. And all that thanks to his street-legal Chevrolet Camaro that goes by the moniker Mad Max.

The Jeff Lutz Mad Max Camaro Is A Real Record Breaker!

World quarter mile record breaking took place at the Orlando Speedway after all pieces finally came together for his team. Both Jeff Lutz and his teammate Scott Murray confessed they missed the tune-up at Drag Week due to tiredness. Although competing with the wrong tune, they still managed to win, as mentioned above. They evidently learned from their mistakes and finally beaten Larry Larson’s Chevy S10 and its 5.89 second pass at 239.74 mph from 2014.

Scott said that overall engine and car combination hasn’t been changed compared to the Drag Week. Great result they’ve managed to achieve is mostly due to perfect weather conditions in Florida. That, and more careful engine tuning and shock setup. If they continue putting up the good work, I don’t see why Mad Max wouldn’t be able to break its own record once or twice more. Until then, check out fastest street-legal car’s quarter mile Orlando pass at Lutz’s Facebook page.

About Nikola Potrebić

Despite driving a piece of junk, Nikola still manages to survive the harrowing experience called "A road trip in a Yugo," day in, day out. On the other hand, precious few things move him as muscle cars do. Especially those from the bygone golden era, which makes him wonder why wasn't he born a few decades earlier? Well, at least he's been given the opportunity to enjoy the likes of the Pontiak Aztek, Chrysler PT Cruiser, Fiat Multipla, and other lovely millennials, right? Come to think of it, I'll stick with my Yugo. Thank you very much.
