My Gen4 Vulcan FF ran a 8
0-60 mph in 8 sec would put you low 16's/high 15's in the 1/4, which isnt right for your mods. Counting or even a stopwatch is not even close to being accurate. The human reaction time varies too wildly to get an accurate measurement. If you have 1/8 mile times there are sites that can calculate your 0-60 based on your mph.

Do you know where any of those sites are? I have some slips I should be able to use to calculate it.

Ok, everyone from here on out has to AT LEAST have a GTECH time. Timing it by counting or stopwatch is very inaccurate, to say the least. And for anyone claiming anything lower than 8.5 sec's, you really should have some power mods (not just a cai) and some actual proof.
