But do the math. At 450rwhp on a 3800lb car (assuming Jeff weighs around 160lbs) with a 20% driveline loss he should be around mid to high 11s maybe even very low 12s.
My car isn't exactly the ideal drag setup lol. First of all, it's EXTREMELY heavy. I weighed it at the scale at the track which is accurate within 10lbs. My car was 4050lbs with no driver lol. Keep in mind I have a heavy system in the trunk. Also, I was getting no traction at all. I was also running on street tires with them still at street pressure of 42psi. I only had time to get in about 4 runs that day, so I didn't have a chance to dial it in that well. I lowered the pressure on one run and I nearly went into the wall because of the tire condition. I didn't realize until later that the tires I ran on were down to the threads on the inner edge due to neg camber wear!
My car would get really squirrely at 100mph+ on the track. I was so lucky I didn't have a blowout!
Anyways, enough of excuses. I'm rebuilding my car to be better this time around with a stronger transmission and a HKS T51R turbo. I plan to take my car into the 10's once the drag strip opens up again in the spring
Below is a picture of the tires, look at that inner edge of the tire! I was seriously lucky it didn't blow out on me!!!
