Lots of people that I have talked to about my car want to know what it will do in on the strip. But being that the only strip around here is only open on special occasions, I do not have a ET yet. I was hoping someone here could figure out a close guess with these figures:
357C, with aprox 360 HP
1970 Mustang Fastback. It weighed 2997 LBS (or something close) from the factory. Does that include the spare tire? With me in it it and other added stuff it probbly weighs around 3200.
It has a heavy duty c-4, with a stage 2 shift kit.
Not sure of the rear end. I think it is something high ratio (around 3.0). I can't find the tag on it anywhere, and the door tag is missing. It is either a 8.8 or a 9 incher.
street Radials on both front and back.
Front and back spoilers.
Srock stall converter.
Can someone give me an estimate with these figures with, say, and average reaction time? It would help me out a lot. I am sure if I changed the rear end it would help the time a lot.
Thanks!!
Matt

I came up with 14.10 @ 102 mph.
That's with really vague numbers for imput. I need more specifics to be 'more specific' with the program.

Went with 3.00 rear gear ratio, and shifting @ 5800.
I dunno. hope this helps........

Thanks a lot for the info....That is right around where I expected to be, but was hoping it was somewhere in the 13's.

Put some gears in the thing with some stick tires and 13s will be pretty easy.
It does have a 9".
My '70 Mach I weight is 3380lb. with driver. I think 3200lbs. for yours is too optomistic.
