So really a 96 mph pass would = around 119. And a 97mph would =120. I run 99 mph in 1/8th and go through the traps @ 123. This with a C-4.

mild street cars seem to go about 22 mph difference 1/8th to quarter imo
turbo's superchargers, differences in gearing make a huge difference.

1 bad Mustang, 2 slow Z28's, and a Sierra crewcab for the groceries.

Most likely around 120-122mph, but it could be faster or slower. The only sure way to find out is run it a full 1/4 mile.

I've done it before when I had a quarter stick. From 1-2 you just pull the shifter, to get to third you need to squeeze the lever when pulling it. I had my hand on the lever and when I pulled it went all the way to third. I just aborted the pass after that though. I've never done it again, I always make it a point to just hold the shifter ball from 1-2, then I go to the lever.

Well I figured the pass wouldn't be that good anyway and it was just a time trial.
