Does anyone know of any other 9-second GT500s out there besides the Evolution car? Better yet, are there any known low-mid-high 10-second GT500s. I haven't heard of any besides Evolution's and at the same time there are a lot of mid-500 RWHP GT500s.

Where are they and what is the current E.T. norm?

Thanks

I think the Texas Hor Rod might be able to perform near those levels. They are producing about the same dyno Numbers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!:eek: That's what I'm most afraid of (keep rebuilding and fixing stuff). I use to use an online calculator that would factor weight, horsepower and torque ratings to come up with an estimated E.T.; however, I can't find it. Dang, it was pretty kool also.

Does anyone know about this online calculator I'm talking about?

I have run 11.4 and that was before I changed rear suspension or installed 373s. I plan to make another trip to the track in a few weeks with some ET streets and hopefully will hit high 10s.

If you work it you will do better than high 10's :)

Conditions matter a lot but I hit 10.991 and was trapping 133+ at the end of last year. The new set up will be a lot faster if i can drive it and you will likely drop a bit more power than me given the rebuild etc.

I'm on the hunt for some taller tires then I'll be at the track. Right now May 9th is my planned 1st day back but I need to figure out the tires or I'll be there on my street tires.

[email protected] on stock (Goodyear) F1s. Mods were 3.73, 2.6" pulley, CAI, Lund tune. That was with a 2.00+ 60'!! No bite.

Having a set of BFG KDW drag radials installed in the morning. They only make 275s and 295s in 18" (that come close to our stock sizes). I have stock size KDWs now and would have loved to matched the size. Unfortunately I had to do the 275s. 295s require 10" + rims. I COULD have used them but would have had the normal problems with too wide of tire for a particular wheel and I'd rather not deal with them.

I'll let you know how they do!
