im not going to say its cake to do but i do know that if you do get 10s on that low of a mph you are really getting the short times down big time.

yup can be done did a 10.95 at 122mph and also when magnus broke into the 10s first with his SI car he was actually running 119.x...

slide rule says a 120mph is good enough...

You have the mph definitely.. A 1.45-1.47 will net you your 10.X pass easily. I would be more concentrated on the 60' than the mph.

I'm with the other guys on this.... It's more common than you think. If you get just a little more weight out of the car or somehow get it to leave just right and drop that 60' it'll hit the magic #. :)
Although Me personally, I have gone 10.99 at 125.6 mph (I'm sure the mph was more so due to the gears- It pulls hard up top) I was leaving easy with the stock 10 bolt with 3.42's. Needless to say I footbraked it to an outstanding 1.659 60' :eyes: It has alot more left in it, But I need to do some suspension work first. And a 9 inch. lol

Good Luck on getting into the 10's your almost there. :chug:

you can go .40s with that mph or even high 30s with a great 60ft

My first time in the 10's. I went 10.99@122 mph with a 1.49 60ft. My best motor pass so far has been a 10.90@123mph with a 1.47 60ft.

I guess it's just a matter of tweaking the suspension and getting the car to 60 foot better.

lol I did this on the stock suspension. I didn't order my suspension until a few months ago and it is still not on the car yet. :D

4 years ago at pinks all out in the show i ran a 10.21 @ 129, so with that mph (122-123) you should be running a little better than a 10.9.....

6 speeds are going to mph better than a4s with the same ET, couple guys in here have forgot that I believe.

First, get a new rear end, like the S60, then maybe you'll get there! Better get started, you're slacking big time, everyone is staged and ready and you're still at the pits!

Yep, its doable. Sat. I ran a 10.87 at 122.43 mph. This is a full weight auto car with stock 3.23 gears and a 1.63 60 ft.

Well I`ve never weighed the car but its a full weight WS6. I weight 200 lbs. and I guess the car weighs around 3500 lbs. Stock 3.23 gear, Vig. 3200 stall, TR 224 cam, TNT 200 shot, bolt ons, & tune. And the rest of the car is 100% stock. 10.87 at 122 mph on a low bottle. It should run around a 10.50 with 3.73 gears and a full bottle.

I ran the same time but with 3 less mph. You went 1.51 60ft and My car went 1.47 60ft. So his statement was right on par!
