I recall a event at Milan Raceway that happened to me. I was making tune up runs in my semi built auto 2003 Vette, running stock cam & heads, long tube headders, 3200 stall TC, cold air, roller 1.8 rockers, CompCam 914 springs and push rods, Dyno tune with BFG drag radial tires. That car would put down consistent 12.5 @ 110 mph with closed exhaust as driven to the track.
There was a SS bracket class 1966 light weight Dodge Hemi trailered in looking great and sounding better. But the SS class was limited to 7" cheater slicks. Didn't know his weight but mine was 3400 lb.
We drew each other by chance and I pulled a perfect hole shot and left the Dodge bus lengths behind. But just after half track he came by me so fast I looked down to by tack to see if my engine was still revving ? Yes I turned a perfect 12.50 @ 110 again as the Dodge put down a 10 second run.
Soooo ...................... to answer the question, does HP count ? You tell me and state your strip experiences please.
If you want to talk about; Detroit Dragway, Lapeer, Motorcity Raceway, and the Woodward Days of the 1960's ...
