Default Don't know where to ask, but since I'm a noob

A guy I know is saying that he's running 11.9 sec 1/4 mile passes @131 in a supercharged mustang dyno'ed @ 285RWHP. Is this accurate? I dunno much about drag racing but the 131mph trap speed (is that the proper term?) sounds a tad fishy. Plus some of the guys here are making 300+ AWHP and not breaking that time. Educate me please. Thank you.

well I was curious since a Viper makes substantially more power and run low 12's at more than 10mph lower speeds (road and track). He said its a daily driver so I assume its not fully gutted for weight and such.

yea there are too many variable to judge...you just have to witness some stuff first hand to believe it!!


if you thinking he's embellishing call his bluff and ask him to take you to the track and repeat the same results!

It wasn't an argument or anything, just trying to learn.
