car has ran 6.37 in the 1/8th mile which is equivalent to a 9.87 in the 1/4.

Let me add that i was not allowed to run faster then a 6.40 at the time.
We had to take some timing out of the motor to slow it down.
Car will be running 6.10-6.15's after we get the cage put in and have it certified.


a 6.10 is equivalent to a 9.45 in the 1/4 mile

Well here ya go Mr MoparRules


you clearly said my car was not capable of running faster then a 10 second pass in the 1/4 with 900+ HP


Well here are 2 slips both showing 6.37 passes which are equivalent to a 9.87 pass in the 1/4 mile.


First Slip
Yellow- I red lit
Car Number- M331
Dialed a 6.41
60ft time- 1.404
330ft- 4.11
594ft- 5.96
1/8 mile ET- 6.3781 @ 108.39 mph



Second slip
White- I won
Car Number M331
60ft 1.39
330ft 4.11
594ft- 5.96
1/8 mile ET- 6.3750 @ 108.66 mph



And here is a picture of a stack of 9 more slips which have times from 6.403 to 6.529. All in the 1/8 mile, all at the same track, all with the same car and motor.



And to once again clear up what MY car number is..

Yup, Thank you sir.


The stock dash is coming out, im going to buy a dash kit that consists of some sheet metal and such.
I would like to eventually cut out the heavy stock floor and replace it with sheet metal which braces and reinforcements where its needed.
Door panels will eventually receive sheet metal also.

Oh and let me add this also..

Stock glass in both doors, both rear side windows and the windshield.


New dash wont be going in the car this year.
Probably be a winter project for next year if i havent started fabbing up the new chassis for the new race car yet.
