so what does that translate into 1/4 mile. does that mean you multiply your 1/8 x 2 and recieve the 1/4. is there even a formula. personally i hate the 1/8 mile probably cuz im old school but if you could translate that would be great.

Piston slap got pretty bad last year, tore it down and found all kinds of cylinder problems.

Started over with a brand new block and it is doing great so far!

Looking forward to seeing your cougar run again soon, that thing is awesome!

1/8 x 2? That's pretty funny. As for hating the 1/8, that's too bad.

I'd rather run the 1/4, but the 1/8 is fun too. Oh, the nearest 1/4 mile track is a two hour drive. The 1/8 mile track is 20 minutes away.

According to most conversion charts I have seen, the equivalent 1/4 mile time would be in the 11.20's.

i just made that up cuz i didnt think there was an actual equation. and the nearest 1/4 track is a 30 min drive. and being i dont have a trailer im not gonna go that far to see what my car does. is it me or are the track becoming extinct as of lately? forgot to say earlier nice runs and i can imagine the whiplash that thing gives you from a stop.

A rough way, is times the 1/8 mile time by 1.56.
