    How about a 3.67 Et /221mph pass in the 1/8th mile.... That would be a 5.82Et /274mph pass in the 1/4 mile

    Bunch of guys turning the wick up at SGMP this weekend. My neighbor is taking his (elderly) dad in the motor home down there. He paid a hefty price to park there for the weekend. Guess that why the fastest guy walks away with a stack of 100 high societies.

    It's amazing that Mark Micke (M&M Transmissions) and car owner Jason Carter's Malibu runs faster than those full-on promods. Couple nice guys too. Hated to see that crash. Just glad he didn't take Mark out. Dwayne Mills in the Golden Gorilla is the one that most do not want to line up next to.

    Unreal times for those cars!

    And a 200 MPH wreck.... In an 1/8 mile run. :eek:

    I'm not so sure you can accurately calculate a quarter mile time/speed for them as I don't think they will hold together another 2 seconds.

    I'm not surprised that they are getting faster. Did you think that they were going to slow down?

    I bet the drivers door being blown off is what caused the crash !!

    All I know is that is frigging amazing!!!! Those guys are bad frigging ass!!!!
    My car runs 213 MPH in the 1/4, these guys are kicking my ass in the 1/8th!!!

    *Removed political statement*


    I do admit after my business grew enough that I could buy the Pro-Mod and my 1/8th mile MPH was faster than my Camaro's 1/4 mile MPH, I'll die fairly happy with that.
    The difference between a 8-9 second car and a 6-7 second car was beyond my wildest dreams growing up a poor kid watching roundy round races with my Uncles.
    You can't even put into words what a 1.00's 60 foot is like, after running 1.30's all those years in the Camaro.
