et calculators

I'm after a good quarter mile estimator/calculator program.
Any suggestions or recomendations would be great!

I want to compare power figures, weights, gear ratio's (if possible), any other lil trinket type variables.

Thanks


347 238rwkw untuned and with a couple more lil things to change :)
Other car: BA FAIRMONT
Our cars are like Rage VS Silence

Cartest. Gives a very good indication. I got mid 14s when I punched in the figures for a ba xr8 ute.

Re: et calculators

i thought the XR8's with the 260 kw motors were 260 at the fly?

I get 14.4 for the XR8?

Is 260kw at the wheels or the fly of the Boss engine?

Re: et calculators

I thought it was fly.
As fly is higher than wheels, so sounds better in advertising.
