    Drag Race times with pro-touring cars

    I'd like to see your drag race information. I like pro-touring but I also like to drag race. I want to see what people have done with their pro touring suspension cars.

    This is right off the street and to the track, no mods for racing except cooling down. Weight is 3450.

    My best N/A run
    1.99 [email protected] [email protected]



    My best nitrous run
    1.92 [email protected] [email protected]

    I am going to swap the cam, install 1.6 rollers and a Vigalante torque convertor and hope for 12's w/o nitrous. I'm pretty sure I'll need better than the street tires I've got.

    Mine went [email protected] coasting through the big end, I broke my converter!

    This is on 315/35/17's!! My ride should go real high 9's at about 150'ish with a full pass. I do this all with a 347" motor and 93 octane!

    If indeed you could run 150+ you'd be well into the 8's with traction.

    135 mph would be right at the point of breaking into the 9's with traction, and of course the requisite safety items required by nhra.

    If your car weighs 3800 lbs with driver, and can run 150 mph in the qtr, with traction you should run in the high 8's and and are seeing about 1200 hp at the crank. That would be some serious hp! (and more nhra requirements)

    I will barely squeek into the 9's with the low profile tires. I am playing around with 17 psi of boost and that should put me close to 150 mph. It would be cool to hit that mark, but I am not too concerned. We will see later this year, but I would be happy with anything over 145 mph on 93 octane. I am pretty confident in that # now that I have a new converter that will not break.

    If you weigh 3500 lbs or so, you'll need 900 ponies at the rear tires to run 145+ mph in the qtr.

    Keep us posted on where you end up. That's serious fast for qtr mile times!!!!

    Just ran 13.68 at E-Town.
    [email protected] with a 2.27 60 foot. I can make excuses all day long, but it ain't a 12 second car. Oh well.

    Your there, just need to have it in race tune, not Power Tour tune, and tires would help.

    Steevo -
    Change your rear tires and loosen up the front or put 100lbs in the very, very back of your trunk. You'd be in the 12's.

    Wide open throttle would help too. Turns out some of the insulation I added DURING Power Tour had the butterflies partially closed. But there I go making excuses. Either way, it will take some work to run a solid 12-something without sacrificing other aspects of the car. I want to get there in "Run what you brung" trim.

    It'll happen. I'm still proud that I went 2720 miles plus a quarter.
