    Yes, but it covers 12 to 12.5X, which would give a better chance of guessing correctly.
    It's on jackstands.

    And we were asked to guess. I don't care so much about the time. Z28boy2000 has a 4k converter and 3.73's. Which IMO is way to much for nitto's.. Okay all of you win on the time...

    If you can hook you have 11s all day. Stalled autos are quick and you have a big stall. There's been big stalled autos running low 12's all day with no internal work

    Just an observation......usually your trap speed is higher if you spin as compared if you don't. That 113 trap speed won't go up if he hooks better IMHO, nor will a 113 mph trap speed be enough to get in the 11's......usually.

    110 mph is enough to get in the 11's if the car is setup properly. 113-114 mph is an easy 11.60-11.70 car, again, properly setup.

    Yep, and your car better not weigh much more than 3,200 pounds either. We're talkin' full weight daily driver cars here.

    That's exactly why I put the word "usually" in BOLD!

    That's also why I guessed 12.38 once I had all of the information, and I was still too quick on my guess!

    You forget FBJ, not everyone knows they're doing like you do!

    And your mods are what?

    Also, how many times have you backed up your 11.898? Have you ran it consistently? Or is that your best time?

    Oh, so you're stroked too.

    I'd expect you to be in the damn 11's with 430 to the wheel.

    The OP isn't anywhere near 430 to the wheel.

    Now I understand the low trap speed.

    That 11.89 was on a hummid 85 degree day and the stock 3.23s, I am hoping once i get the 12 bolt and some gear in the car i will be in the mid to low 11s.

    Full weight with aftermarket stereo that added weight. I know I ran 11.92 @ 113.52 with a 1.65 60'. Heck I broke into the 11's with a 11.98 @ 111 or 112. I will have to dig my time slips up.

    Typical 3600 lbs+ street car. For the record, 4th gen verts aren't heavy enough to matter. I have both a vert and a T-top, The vert is only 60 lbs heavier. 3560 vs 3620 without me in the car. Both optioned SS's.

    When I said those MPH's equal 11 second times, note that I said "setup properly" Without the correct gearing, converter, and suspension, then all you have is MPH without the ET to go with it.
    MPH is nothing but HP, the ET is a result of the first 60 feet, to put it in simplist terms and not make things more complicated.
