I have never taken my car to the strip and I am thinking about it. Anybody have an idea of what my car would run in the 1/8 or the 1/4? It dyno'd 281 rwhp and 284 ft/lbs. That is before the blaster coils and underdrives. It also has BF Goodrich G-Force with 17" cobra R's with BBK lower control arms and 3.73's.

My guess would be mid 13's to low 14's in the 1/4 mile.

If you have any experience at the track with a different car pehaps your numbers will be much better. It took me several passes to improve my driving skill at the track and started off with low 14's and now running in the mid 12's. I should be running the high 11's (probably will never get there since I do not run on DR's).

With some respectable driving your car should definitely be solidly in the the 13's. I ran 14.3 @ 96mph with my mostly stock '94 (old school 5.0 engine). My only mods are K&N, O/R X-pipe, and 3.73 gears. I hope that this car will hit the high 13's as is. When I ran the 14.3 I was spinning the tires as soon as I left the line (I was even launching from idle), all the way through first and a tiny bit in second. The track temperature was very cold that night and I never bothered to let any air out of my Sumitomo street tires (35 psi). I have a stickier set of slightly used Kuhmo road racing tires that a friend gave to me. With those and some better track conditions I am hoping to get in the 13's. I should definitely get there with the headers, flowmasters and tune that I plan to get done in the not too distant future.

I will check their website, and see when the test and tune is starting.


*edit*, it looks like they are already going, so any thursday night is test and tune. If you want to go sometime, let me know, I would love to cruise out with you.

Easily in the mid 13's with decent driving. My first ever pass down a dragstrip, I took my '97 Cobra (exhaust and gears - 276 rwhp) to a 13.5 @ 103 mph.

Take it to the track and find out. Don't worry about reaction time (doesn't affect your times), just try to get good solid launches with minimal tire spin and no bogging and pull each gear to 7k.
