Sounds about right. Hellcat Charger is an 11.0 car in ideal conditions on stock rubber. Or at least that’s what I’ve ran. And Vette is a claimed 11.2, though I don’t think many owners have gotten there yet. I don’t trust the mag times that said they have.

I am not surprised, a heavy ass tank with really no aerodynamics vs a lighter car with more aero. With the rule of thumb that 100 lbs is worth a tenth in the quarter that is roughly 1.2 seconds.

One thing is for sure, I ain't scared from a roll. On the street from a dig, I will probably get embarrassed.....at least at in the 0-60mph range and then I will mile an hour the shit out of him.

We need to test the dragy out in your car.

I know, but this car kind of scares me. Doing 1/4 mile hits will put me in the 130+ range on the street.

ME NO LIKEY

I'd be hesitant to run those kinds of speeds on a street too. I don't think it would take much of a dip/hump to get the wheels off the ground.

I cannot. It's rare. It was on a nice open stretch right before Silver Glen, no cops in sight.
