Supercharged SVT 1/4 mile times (kinda disapointed)

R/T ... .809
60' ... 2.279
330 ... 6.360
1/8 ... 9.666
MPH ... 75.51
1000 .. 12.518
1/4 ... 14.909
MPH ... 94.15

R/T ... .531
60' ... 2.307
330 ... 6.382
1/8 ... 9.716
MPH ... 74.11
1000 .. 12.558
1/4 ... 14.972
MPH ... 93.77

What am I doing wrong or is that what is to be expected. I was running street tires with 20psi in them. I need some feedback

Not sure but I think something is wrong, I'm not an SVT owner but I do drag race every weekend. I also am running mid 14's with a stock 2.0 on a 50 shot of nitrous and drag radials?!? You should be faster than me I think by like a half second to full second.

what are you leaving the line at RPMs?

Kal El 05-06-2008 11:30 PM

Are you getting a lot of tire spin of the line. These cars are tricky off the line. Not enough gas you bog to much gas then the tires spin. You might want to practice some more. I've never raced my SVT. So I can't say I'm an expert on the matter. Just my 2 cents. Good luck!

wow...YOUR 1/8TH is really high....are bogging off the line....try a 5k clutch dump

ya just spin the shit out of them in first and feather the gas until you grab then power shifted until you reach the line.

Try working on your launch David, your 60 ft times need improvement. What tires and psi are you running? Maybe get a set of drag tires or lower the pressure a bit in the tires you have now.

Another thing your 330ft times are too slow. I'm getting a 6.4 on a non FI motor. Read the SIG for power.

This may help you out a bit...
