what it will run will vary on a lot of fundamentals.

is the racer experienced?
street tires or DR's?
track condition?


many other things will make a difference.

it would be a guess. what hp are you pushing out at the rearwheel?


i would say low 11's maybe high 10's without knowing hp ratings. this also will flux with temps and track conditions. Could be faster than that as well.

my impy is running low 11's, but i am looking at close to 580 at the rear wheel. my main probs are traction. I am looking at installing a custom IRS.

I do not know what the hp is. There are no rear wheel dynos around central MO that I know of. I saw a similar setup run easy 12.50's w/ traction problems though. What is an "impy"? Got a picture?

Also, i was going to add the porsche brake's for the front and rear, but alas i got laid off again on Friday. So there goes my Autox fun. Was heading to MotorsportsRanch for some fun, but my brakes are fading bad i had to bleed them between races the last time i was out of there. Did get to run my friends Porsche. It was soo much fun!

any way.. until i fond a job i am not gonna be racing. Figures the weather gets cooler and better. Ohh well
