The only way to find out what something will do is to test it at the track. You can have 2 cars that are the SAME.. Did I say same.. Add the SAME mod and you will get 2 different times.
    Yep, it's all good fun. I hope he doesn't get too caught up in all that 1/8 mile calculating either, because it too can be a bit misleading.

    Some cars run stronger on the first half of the track and not so well out the back door. Others are the opposite.

    I have time slips from a 1/4 mile track so slips don't lie. I think mine ran pretty well because if you go look what a 8.62 should be in the 1/4 and what mine ran It ran faster than what it said it should had ran.. I think the one I found it should of been a 13.44- 13.48 mine ran a 13.23.. I'am not getting caught in 1/8 mile calculating I run mine 1/4 mile.

    Just pointing out the 1/8 mile conversions aren't always accurate. Some don't take into consideration the weight, gear, tire height etc...

    For instance my wifes car runs 8.50's 1/8 mile at 88 mph. Calculates to low 13.30's according to many conversion charts. But it actually runs 12.90's at 111 mph.
    There are instances where the opposite happens as well. Sounds like you have a 1/4 mile track to run though, no worries.

    Yup By what mine did from the 1/8th to the 1/4 8.50s is 13.0s.. I know the charts go by 1.56 and mine is 1.535 so my car picks up more than what the charts say what mine should run..

    Internet calculations are nice to mess with just for the hell of it. But I wouldn't base any times or power output numbers just off of an internet calculation. To me, it's just non-sense. What it runs, is what it runs... and that's just that.
