speed and time question......

just wondering, hope theres an answer...is there a general time and speed corollation?

example....

14 sec 90 mph
12 sec 120 mph
11 sec 130 mph
10 sec 140 mph?

i know alot depends on weight and horsepower, ect.

keeping it simple... should a time range have a certain speed asscoiated with it?

Here is what I have seen, when you figure about 3000 lbs and sticky tires...

10s = 120-135
11s = 112-120
12s = 102-112
13s = 96-102

There are 94757493 factors that go into these things, but the numbers I posted there are more or less what I see for well running cars on sticky tires.


89 LX: Stock cam, E7s, Cobra intake, 3.73s and bolt ons... BESTS
12.56 et 107.4 mph: slicks, 12.53 et 108.2 mph: 17" ET Streets, 12.87 et 111.5 mph: 17" DRs, 12.95 et 109.2 mph: 18" radials

That is with good traction, if the traction is not there than your numbers will look like a supras numbers

11s = 145-149
12s = 155-159
13s = OMG LIGHTSPEED

Before I tore my 93 tbird down I ran a 16.78 @ 90mph. It had a sloppy AOD with stock torque converter and stock 3.27's but the motor was very healthy.

I saw the factor 1367.38 posted on another site. It does seem reasonably accurate.

In other words take an 11.0 second et.
1367.38/11 = 124.3 mph

Or take say 130 mph
1367.38/130 = 10.52 et

It's at least ball park and that's all you'll ever get with so many factors to consider.

OFR - old fart racing

We're not fast racers. In fact folks call us half fast racers. At least I think that's what they're saying.
