Jays 69 Mach 1 weight?
« on: July 23, 2016, 09:08:15 PM »
So I am looking over the Dyno results pages and Jays 511 ci 69 Mach 1 has 700 + hp and his mph in the 1/4 mile was 129 so assuming a 18% driveline loss the car must weigh 3600 lbs if my math is correct ??
This is a GREAT site thanks Russ

That's about right, Russ, if I recall it weighed 3650 with me in it.  It's been a while since it has been in that condition...

LOL, well Howie, I am 10 years older now, I'd be kidding myself if I thought I was still in the same condition  ;D.  But I think the car has changed more than me, having gone through a supercharged engine and now the high riser...
