Who knows.. but given that there is a PB of 13.07 for a SC one... the chances are it's him.
With rod's PB of 13.2 it's only a matter of time anyway ...

Re: 12 Second V8 BA - Anyone here

A s/c Boss "should" be running 12's, i would be going mad if it didnt! For a lot of people drag racing does take getting used to, and those supercharged XR8/GT's have way more than enough power to crack a 12, so it shouldnt be far away if this is it

A N/A BAV8 shouldnt be too far away, with rod running a 13.2 it's pretty close

MIGHT BE INSANE BUT WE HAVE NOT SEEN OR HEARD OF A BA 290 THAT IS N/A RUNNING A 12 SEC PASS..
AT THE MOMENT ROD IS THE QUICKEST WITH A 13.26. AND A UNOPENED ENGINE.

I recon thats dissapointing

There is no way these cars dont have enough power to do it.

Whats the quickest manual you guys know of?

I remember when i first was racing my XF ute with one of my prior built engines (was just mild ) Had a mere 420 rwhp and was running 11.00 at 125 mph. (weight was 3700 pounds)

My GTP has 350 rwhp... gotta be able to crack a 12 (4300 pounds)
That should be good for a 12.80 12.90

Gunna have to rope Barry into pullen his GT out this week and comming. One of us has to be able to do it lol.. OR DIE TRYING!!!!!

Rods MPH is good for about 12.80.. I think all rod needs is gears and hes set, providing he can hook it up once he does the gear change.

Ahhh shit i promised myself i wouldnt get into racing again.. Its like a good women.. Once youve had it once u want more but you just cant afford to keep it up.. only difference being you have to try not to finish first with the women :)
