    Having lots of exits, which by default means lots of ENTRANCES, just makes the crime worse. At 170 mph, you're doing almost a mile every 20 seconds. Which is less time it takes many drivers to get up to 80 mph when merging onto the interstate.

    I decided 12 seconds is the fastest I want to go in a 1/4 mile.

    I doubt a Dodge Challenger even with a supercharger is going to be able to hit 10.99 or less
    In order for a new challenger to consistently make 10 second passes, it would need at least 550hp to the wheels, which would be over 600 on the motor, it would need to loose at least 500 pounds, and it would need to be running at least 345 drag slicks in the back. With a good driver, that MIGHT make low 10 sec passes. Not sure, though. I am, obviously, more of a Chevy guy.

    And the stock rear would last about 5 passes. Who ever had the idea to put an IRS in those should be shot.

    Thats called poor suspension set up and or poor driver skills.
    Could be bad track prep, but if you can build a 9 second car. You should know the track conditions before running.

    Multiple choice, public vote.
    If the driver stops, jail. Felony charge for over 100 miles per hour. The type of car means nothing, its all about the driver.
    If the driver drove nothing but a pinto until he could afford his vette. He is not qualified to run those speeds on an open highway.
    Even if be pulls out a Salt Lakes comp license or a Super Pro or Pro Mod license from the NHRA it is still not legal and he deserves the harshest penalty the state allows.

    I actually just went to englishtown with a busy of mine, and his recently "finished" 88' rustang 5.0. Built motor, from the bottom up, over 8 grand in machine work alone, let alone in components, all said, probably 15 grand sunk in the motor. Rediculously high lift cam, horrible street manners. And a 200 shot of nitrous. On the spray, the car lays down 580 rwhp, which, for some on here, doesn't sound like much...but to have that sort of power to the wheels, he must be making real close to 700hp at the crank. Built tko600 tranny, built ford 9 inch rear end, traction bars, the whole deal. This car took us almost 7 years to build, and a LOT of his money. Car weights 3250 pounds, with him in it. At the track, he ran 275 slicks. Did mid 11 sec passes. Couldn't get traction, with either of us driving. Part of it was body flex, it's just really hard to eliminate in older cars, without going the tube frame rout. We're also going to have to roll the rear fenders so we can safely fit a larger wheel/tire combo, I figure it needs at LEAST 325s. He needs to find a set of 16x10.5 wheels with 4 inch back spacing. He still wants to drive the car on the street, which I won't do (it's a waste of gas, IMO), so he's keeping his 16x8.5s, to run a set of nitto 555s on. Still won't get traction at half throttle with those tires. But whatever.

    Last but not least, he needs a good auto tranny, which he is also not going to do, he likes the manual. Will that car ever make a 10 sec pass? Maybe. I don't know.

    When I hear kids talking about their 10 second civic or integra, I can't help but laugh. They just have no clue.

    OK, so we have perfect conditions, perfect automobile, perfect driver ( a professional ).
    But, in real life, perfection exists not...
    A true , adult pro would never do this (170), IMO.
    This is a stunt that I would pull , but as a child.....late bloomer....
    Punishment ?
    One year loss of the "right to drive".
    But, its NOT fully a right nor a privilege, its a responsibiliy...IMO

    Multiple choice, public vote.
    And a fine of 1% of his annual income ?

    The new challengers aren't solid axels? Man. I mean, the camaro, I knew about. Just never figured something like that would happen at Chrysler...

    Eh, when you're dealing with the level of power need to get trap speeds in the 150mph range, some pretty knarrly, scary **** can happen...quickly. My friends rustang was well set up by both of us, and another friend who built drag cars for a living. And that thing was a handful, and always will be. I've also driven a ZR1, to be more on topic, and that car is hell on wheels, if you try to go fast in it. It requires complete focus and concentration, 100% of the time, or the rear comes out on you.
