            At 3300 Wallace says it’ll go 8.00 at 168. Post up that time slip when you get it.

            Just for the record....I have never forecasted LOW 8s.
            I think with good air, perfect launch, everything being RIGHT I would HOPE of anything starting with an 8.
            But...after that....I will set the ET Genie Restrictor plates, set the shift points, etc. for the car to run 9.60's which is the INDEX for C/Gas for the track that I run at (Famoso). The car will never go 8.60's so B/Gas is out of my reach.

              Mike look at your 1st post in this thread.
              Last sentence.
              Said you were looking to go deep in the 8s with a mph of 160.
              Low 1.20 60 foot. Just for cmparison.
              This time slip is with 1200hp in July. 1.26 foot on the back tires. Hot as balls and I was very lean. Car has been 8.62@158mph

                reading this thread, anything with a Hemi is cool......if your motor makes an honest 1100fwhp on track as dyno'd before and I'm guessing your @line weight of 3300lbs?, its poss with gear/tyre combo you have to go>
                60 Foot E.T. : 1.17
                1/8 Mile E.T. : 5.30
                1/8 Mile Trap Speed : 128.23
                1/4 Mile E.T. : 8.40
                1/4 Mile Trap Speed : 159
                1/4 Mile Trap RPM : 7,643+slip
                just doing a quick calc......
                We have 3 guys here running 572 hemi's in our UKNSS brkt class, 1 in a '68 Charger going 9.3's now another with a Petty tribute Bird going 9.6's, and 1 in a challenger also 9.6's, all relatively mild motors though only making around 870fwhp currently.

                  Mike, whatever you run you have my respect for still being involved in the sport, actually owning and driving the car, not just coaching younger guys. Don't know what motivates the naysayers, just a negative by-product of the internet I guess.

                    I held off on finally making a critical decision until I could get Mike's input, and that doesn't happen very often on my part, so I certainly respect his experience and opinions.

                          Thanks.
                          But now next outing will be 3rd week in February. Track is closed for winter until then.
                          That outing is a Friday, Saturday, Sunday 3 Day Test & Tune weekend in advance of the big March Meet Race which is the first part of March.
                          I will be able to get all the runs I want during that 3 days to get things dialed in.
