HAPPYHANDS I think your talking about Big Red. I was talking to the Evo guys and they are talking about doing Drag Week this year. It looks like a 1,200 mile trip again.

That's not even really a street car. I read about it in some magazine. It's impressive, but I'd be more impressed if it would run in the Silver State Classic where it's 100 mile mostly straight stretch.

I read one year where there was a Camaro entered into the competition that had an averaged speed of 227. IIRC, it was a 427 with 800 hp. It's been 15 years since I read that article though.

focuzed1 well im not on stock size tires first and trust me id bury it past 160 with ease.. not sure about in a mile... but id run out of rpms before i would run out of power...lol... but unfortunately there is alot i would have to do to my car for them to let me run.. and i deff dont plan on doing any of it.. im not putting a cage in my daily.. its too pretty inside..lol.. and i dont have a fire suite as well.. and plus i would also have to change my tires because apparently i cant run 18s.. oh well.. and i sat down and di the math one time when i was cruising in 5th at like 80.. i dont remember the exact #s ill have to do it again but it cam out to like 189mph by the time i hit 7200rpm.. (that is f my car had enough power to push it that fast.) not sure id even want to go that fast in it anyways..lol... but i was just wanting to test it out sometime.. but im surely not gonna add 2kk worth of stuff just to find out...

HAPPYHANDS I think he would hit around 150-160mph. Thats is he could get it to stick. You have to use DOT tires. No slicks.

Roushturboedzx3 Ive been 162 with my mtx75 and some 215/45/17 tires, with a taller tire it should be able to go a little faster, im also on 3:82 gears

FWIW, stock tire diameter and 7,200 RPM you can hit 167MPH max'ish. I really doubt you'll get much over 150 though, if even.

Spreadsheet you can play with: https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?...N2JkNWc&hl=en#

Oh, just do it. We all want to see what that thing will do. Heck, we could probably get 100 members to send you a dollar each.

HAPPYHANDS It 100 if you preregister. 125 if you dont. 50 to be a member for the year. If you think you will go over 135mph. You need to order the rule book. It 10 bucks I think. There is just alot of little things you need to do once youc go over 135mph. Thats why I say you need a rule book. Y ou will have to run only 130mph first run then 150mph you 2nd to get the correct licenes you need to run up to 174mph. So you first 2 runs will be just to licens up. You will need to be there friday for car inspection and roookie orientation.
