Wow.... that's....... kinda slow. Low 18s. I guess it could be worse, you could be running high 18s. :D Lol, it's kinda funny because I was reading down the list of times not paying attention to what they corresponded to. 11.69? That's kinda quic... oh wait... wrong number, 15.19? hrmm... not too bad... ugh wrong numbers! Eightteen point one five???? Danggg.

No offense, but I hopes my car is never as quick as that. :D

yeah I think that you could hit mid 17's with a good reaction time.

reaction time has nothing to do with ET, if he got the 60ft down, possibly

I probably could improve the time quite a bit, changing out those 2.73 gears for some 3.55s. Yea, the et clock doesn't start until you roll out the beams, not on the green. This was the first time in about 20 years I've been on the strip...lol. :crazy:

That seems kinda slow. I swear that I remember Hot Rod running a 87 5.0 Bird when they were new and getting atleast a mid 16 stock. Hell a I know for a fact that a bone stock 90 Crown Vic with a 5.0 will run a 16.7 (I saw it with my own eyes). Mabey your car is a little sick.

maybe it is a heavy old car with a stock engine that isnt basically brand new. I could see 17's, but after a couple of hundered thousand miles, I could see it being alittle bit slwoer too.

Yeah probibly depends on how many miles it has and how well the previous owner kept it mantained. The Vic I saw had about 50,000 miles and was owned by an older guy who constantly mantained it.

Well, it has 160,000+ on it. The aod shifts like new. Here's what the inside of the motor looks like, pretty clean. :D
