Really? 2000 pounds? Not possible....
Over 20 years ago, a street based, pump gas 347 combination I worked on went 10.70s all day long. Old series Twisted Wedge heads, Victor Jr. intake, Holley 750DP coupled with a C4, ATI converter and 4.30 gears. (in a 3300 pound hatch)
Imagine what can be done today!
ok just to be clear we are talking about a foxbody right?
I own an 89 GT shes high 25xx lbs and this is a real race car (trackcar) not that drag race skinnie fronts, tiny light weight k member and aerospace hollow brakes. Plus i still have stock windshield, quarter windows, stock fuel tank, iron block, stock rearend.
So which fox would i buy to break records?
1979 (ugly AF) but the lightest fox ever made
then we remove side mirrors, convert the car to a front feeder cooling setup, massive amounts of aero work to reduce drag, flat bottom, belly pans the works.
I am almost willing to bet we (corral knowledge and people) could get a 79 fox to 2200lbs sort of easy
2000lbs we would need carbon fiber and deeper wallets.
2000lb 79 fox
with someones 450hp 302 (im guessing carbed since we dont need reliability, drive-ability, we dont need power steering, #### we dont even need an alternator, ive seen drag race guys run off a battery for 1/4 mile then roll into the paddock. Electric water pump, have that 302 spinning!
2000lbs 450hp, aero, and throw in a good drag race driver, come on, we would be putting big blocks to shame!
