I used to do it in about 56 seconds, but now that I weigh 250+ pounds , i start puking after the first fifty feet, and I feel a tightness around my chest. My 60 foot times are lousy too, as I can't here the whistle anymore.

The monte was mid 14s with its last motor.(350 w/ 305 heads and Summit cam) Built a 320horse 350 expecting 14.0 on street tires and 87 octand gas till I found a cracked frame and canned the project for my 58 Volvo.
I am thinkin the Volvo aughta scream(in the 1/8 anyway) it only weighs like 2700lbs and for the time being has 4.56s.

My LS1 car runs 11.32 Hey rubberman you want to try me???

My GMC diablo was running 11.20's, but now with the rebuild, we are hoping for Very low 10's or high 9's.

I'm just joking, I respect anything fast, & I guess that I should take it as a compliment that alot of people these days use the LS1 as a comparison as to how they run. We have guys on LS1.com & LS1tech.com that are running in the 9's with LS1's. The thing that most LS1 drivers these days are using for comparison are the 03 Cobra's & yep I've smoked one or two. But the crew that I hang out with & race with is about half Mustangs & Half F-Body's & we've got some fast mustangs in the club. We even hang out with a couple of 11 sec ricers, but they are sleeper ricers @ that. No stickerz or Fart pipes allowed.

Id just like to get to the track and see what the Gremlin will run. Id say with me in the car, it would weigh around 2700-2900lbs or so. The motor is pretty stock and the 2 speed tranny kills the bottom end, but Id guess low 14's to mid 13's???? But hopefully the new motor will change that. HG

Axle, I think you have me beat. I can do it in three maybe four minutes. I've never really timed myself. Of course I'll have to try it "WITH" the car sometime. Puff, puff, pant , pant. Giver me some air quick!

I'm guessing about 5 minutes. Thats how long it would take to push a rolling chassis to the finish line wouldn't it?

Jamnut you do have a good point people do use the Ls1's as a comparision very very much. The only beef i have with them are SOME SOME of the drivers, a lot of Ls1 drivers are very ****y (guess they have reason to be) but i just dont like it when the rich little punks bash on everyone elses car. i hope i race one before i get my car painted )) No offense intended im sure you know they ones i mean.

Don't feel singled out Fox, I probably run 15's, maybe a 14 something if I'm lucky, but I doubt it. After I put this tunnel ram I'll probably run 16's j/k Hey Rubberman, I hear you about the LS1 drivers, but it's just like any other group, there are jerkoff's and cool guys that drive: ricers, crotchrockets, musclecars, etc.
