According to the calculators Derek was telling me about, 300hp and a car that weighs 4176lb should go 13s. thats well within range of the 350sbb but arent 13s unheard of in B bodies with small blocks making a mere 300hp?
Found a weigh station at the landfill near where I live. I can drive on it for free and weigh my car. It shows up right on a display as you drive in. So I went for it. I was surprised it only weighed 4176lb. That is after I deducted for gas, passengers and junk in the trunk.
Could I really do 13s with only 300hp? Wait. I miscalculated. The temp would have to be 10 below zero. Never mind. with driver and gas it would be 4400lbs. Low 14s. at 65f
I would need 325hp to propel my land yacht down the track in 13.98 seconds at 65F, 10feet above sea level, 30mb barometric pressure, and 40% humidity according the hp calculator. Is this realistic or just theory.
