if its fairly acurate then my old truck ( 85 GMC) Would have ran about a 16 second 1/4 mile. Yeah I think your right about it sounding fairly accurate. My truck took forever to get up to speed

RPM has a bearing on time but there are more (acceleration) parameters than that. You for sure know your top speed if you know RPM but it doesn't tell how you got there so time could vary quite a bit.

I know all my numbers

I know all my numbers; gears, tire height, rpm, weight, et, and mph. It was only off by 2/10ths on my car.

neat little debate started here. I don't know my car's rpm at the end of the 1/4, either. If I did, I'd prolly know what it'd run, thus rendering the calculator useless other than something to mess around with.

Well, I'd have to run my GrandAm, since the Javelin has non-functioning brakes.
