1/4 mile time ?

I have a XC Fairmont GXL with a 9" 3.25 diff, C10 with 2500 dominator hi stall and the motor making 160 rwKw.
What sort of a 1/4 mile time would be expected at Calder

I would assume around a 14.2
Cheers Alex.

Re: 1/4 mile time ?

I'll guess it will be closer to a 14.7 or 14.6 I think. Its hard to say but I'm guessing it will be pushing it to get a mid 14.

Re: 1/4 mile time ?

A 351 cleveland with 160rwkw will run around 14.6-14.8 because it will have more torque multiplication and tractive effort than the 302 clevo with the same converter.

If its a 302 with 160rwkw, I think it will struggle to get into the 14's, I hope im wrong, but lets be realistic.

Re: 1/4 mile time ?

I'd say mid 14's to low 15 somewhere. Mates XC panelvan with 177rwkw on ran 14.195 on street tyres with a minispool and 3.77gear.

Other mates 163rwkw XB coupe with a 3.5 single spinner and 4spd manual runs 15.2. Not sure what it runs now as it has a 3.5 LSD.

Keeping in mind XC's weigh more than XB's. Those bumpers are huge!
