i have a race with a guy from this forum with a 01-02 svtf. i think in the 1/4 and have a very very good shot of beating him. i have 05 duratec with fs cai, borla exhaust, fc tb, x2-cal tune by wanye on 93 oct and 17' rim with agressive perf. tires. i think all he has is a drop in k+n air filter. ive driven a svt before and i know they are ok low end but great top end. my car is great low end and ok top end. i really think its a drivers race. whats your input?? what are my chances

wow, with 17' rims youd be way slow....lol
seriously tho, if he doesnt screw up and miss a shift or something, hes going to take you.
point being tho, go have fun and see what your car can actually do. opinions dont mean anything

It'd be close. netdrgoon runs low 15's but he also has a cosworth header and cam's. That's enough to beat my 15.4. Better get him off the line is all I can say, If you don't horsepower will win out.

No cams yet. [:D]

Still waiting on the GB to wrap up. Then there will be cams (stage I cranes with a timing adjustment tool).

The track was slick the other night though..everybody was running slow. Kinda pissed me off cause the temps were right for 14s...just the track condensation wasn't.

I bought something else last night...a hawker odyssey pc680 battery...~14lbs compared to the 38lb stocker...less weight FTW..lol.

oh yeah, here are some of the car show pics mvent:

TNT car show

The ZX351 was there. I took a video of it and it sounded nasty. Parked right next to me at the show actually. w00t.

I'm the svtf he's gonna race. I have a K&N filter, screamin demon coil pack/live wires and a FRSTS. The quickest i've done is a 15.95 @ 88.08 on street tires, but that was before all the new body work and the coil pack/wires.

thats a high top speed for a 15.95 work on that 0-60 ft and you should be in the mid to low 15s.

R/T - .090
60' - 2.454
330 - 6.838
1/8 - 10.370
1000 - 13.406
1/4 - 15.956
MPH - 88.08

That was my quickest qualifying time at FFW @ Commerce 2005. I've done a bit since then and i didn't race this year, just showed, so i don't know how much different it might be.
