I was told by someone that a '71 SS beat a McLaren F1 in a drag race.

The only modification made was a Supercharger.

I'd appreciate a non-bias answer please - Do you really think that's possible?

Also regarding a '71 SS - What was the highest HP available on a stock vehicle?

Many thanks!

maybe if the blower was a 6-71 and the driver of the McClaren didn't know how to drive.

I'd be interested in hearing the ET's of both cars. Owning a supercharged Chevelle makes me think that it's possible. They can be tweaked to be pretty quick in a drag race whereas a McLaren is NOT a drag car.

What does an F1 run in the 1/4? 11.xx?

Big sticky slicks and a super-charger on the Chevelle?
11.60 was the slowest I found http://www.supercars.net/cars/1177.html

Now I have never messed with any forced induction, but I think more mods would be or should I say "should be" done than just bolting on a s/c. So I vote for the "its possible"
