Default Is a 6.33 1/8 enough?

Is a 6.33 @ 113 in the 1/8 good enough for the 9sec club? Or do I need to pack it to a 1/4 mile track?

a 6.33 is on the bubble, but considering your going 113 mph at half track, and your a turbo car (I think? I cant understaind your exact setup given in your dig) Id say your definatly in the 9's given another 660 feet. My camaro runs 6.15-6.20 @111 ish at half track and clicks off mid 9.7's. And thats N/A

should be good for 9.80 range or possibly better. Usually you can multiply the 1/8th ET by 1.55-1.56 is a close indicator. Being a turbo car I would think you would pick up more on the big end than an NA setup.

6.33 x 1.573=9.95709 but for you to get a 9 second title you need to run the 1/4 mile. You should have no peoblem running in the 9's. Congrats on the run.

Umm a 140 in the 1/8th is like a 5.2X/5.3X, your numbers don't work. I know it's back halfing but.

113 is nice for the 1/8th and should roll out pretty good in the 1/4 with your turbo.
