Maybe with the street tires, but that should be a solid 330-360 horse ride depending on the heads. With proper parts and chassis tuning, he should be able to lick some 13's out of it.

btw, is 3770 the title weight?

Want a 1/4 mile estimate....................?

1520 ft....................

That's about as accurate as you will get without acctually doing it.............there are just too many variables, including driver experience.

yep, I'm with poncho, and that's the great thing about racing is that as you learn more about the mechanics of your car and how it reacts, you'll get faster. I still think that after all is said and done, granted, with some experience, that car can be in the 13's and should be clocking right around a buck five or so.
