I would like to know if anyone has a real slip on a magnuson car, not an estimate or dicussion about the physics of drag racing, rear end problems etc...
Just a time slip I can show my customers.
Thanks
David

I turned 12.9 at 116 mph on stock tires. The track is slightly up hill which costs 0.1 sec or so, terrible traction and a hot humid night, 90 deg and similar humidity. The traction control was left on. So a good run with a good drive should be faster. My V has a maggie and cam from MP.

what, a supercharged v goes from 13.1 seconds on the 1/4 to high 12s? Why are the numbers so low.. is it traction?

ET is irrelevant... look at that trap speed... that's some serious HP!! :worship: :worship:

I think it could do a little better. My times are always slower than others. The track is slick and I may not drive well.

That's a mid-11 timeslip even with a marginal (1.7xx) 60' time.

Jim, were you responding to my posted time? On this 12.9 run the 60 ft time was 2.0. Do you really think the car can do 11s? That seems too fast to me. According to the MP dyno the car puts down 465 to 475 hp at the rear wheels, depending on conditions. Its shown on the More Performance web site.

I was reacting to the 117 MPH in the 1/4-mile. But around 115 MPH it gets 'easy' to run 11s. You can do it with slower trap speeds, but it requires a lot of traction. At 114-115 MPH you can squeeze out 11s with a 1.8xx 60' time which is not a lot to ask of drag radials. If you've got 465 at the wheels, plus 500+ ft./lbs. torque, 11s should be easy with a little traction. I know you guys worry about the rears, but a 1.8xx 60' time isn't all that radical.

EDIT: I didn't see your 116 MPH trap. High 11s should be easy with practice and a little more traction. My 'worst' 11-second timeslip (11.975) was @ 114.6 MPH and a 1.90 60' time. As you get more traction MPH usually suffers *slightly* but you have the luxury of a couple more MPH. It should be easy once you get the launch down.
