Thats from start line to finish line and thats an average. So peak rear wheel hp would be higher, now if someone can come up with a peak #, we can add frictional losses and come up with peak flywheel hp. I think?

5.13's are great in the quarter if your tires are 53 inches tall.

But like I said no more excuse it's time to get the 69 rolling.

Gimmie fuel gimmie fire gimmie that which I desire!!!!

Hey Charles,

Where you gonna run at first, Memphis or Holly Springs? Because we both know that Byhailia or Fulton doesn't count.
With that said, i don't see a problem hooking, because those tires are over 12" wide. Predictable HP is probably close to 750 plus and if the car weighs i think about 2650/2750lbs. I believe you can expect 5.60's to 5.70's and you know that i know the tracks there.
Maybe i'll be there when you get it to the track, since i'm back and forth between La. and Ms. In fact i was there when it snowed a month ago, but only because my rental house took on water 4 days earlier and i had to take care of that, perhaps one of the worse weeks in my life. Went from 5 1/2 inches of rain in one hr. to 24 degrees 2 days later then snow. All this while trying to save the carpet, ( i lost that round ).
Any way my friend PM me when you are ready to go to the track and i just may be up there, also i may be at Memphis Super Chevy in April running my car.

Zip.
