Fastest ever conventional manual 1/4 mile......

You know, standard 'H' pattern stick shift, with foot opperated clutch, at least 4 speed. Can be modified/strengthened but has to retain those standard features.

What box was it? What car was it in? What motor? Etc. How long did it last?

For a street car i'm thinking it may be a rotary turbo.

For a drag car, who knows?

Thanks

Indy cars use or used to use H pattern gear.

Boss 33o that hides around the forums runs low 10's everytime out in his 97 cobra. It pushes 52orwhp n/a with a 5.4L (ported cobra R heads) through a custom T56, he's rebuilding the engine with a new Ford GT block and is aiming for 9's i think.

Re: Fastest ever conventional manual 1/4 mile......

a few rotors and skylines around the world have run into the 8's or even quicker

BUT the Pro Stockers here in Oz ran a few years ago with conventional manual shifters I'm sure of it and ran 7.60's there abouts, in the states the Pro Stock trucks ( 7.50's ) and Pro Stock sedans ( 6.80's ) ran them around the same time

Re: Fastest ever conventional manual 1/4 mile......

well the fastest R33 in australia ran a high 8 something with a hollinger box, but has run a 8.2 with something else.

HKS has run a 7.4 with a hollinger.
