We don't have it in Phx either but it's been shown that a large percentage of the country does.

Going to have to ask for a timeslip on your claim.


My bud runs a 99 Firebird, 425 LSX twin turbo, on the corn, runs consistent 7.30s @ 194.


His 60? 1.15 on average. And that is breaking the 60 on the back tires. Roughly 7 feet added to the 60 foot.

I'll have to dig it up, but I'm honestly slow to the 60' by any account in the racing circles I'm around. Look up X275. The most impressive car I know of is Ron Rhodes' 68 camaro. SB/NOS car on leafs, on a 275/60 is consistanly sub 1.10, and I know he's been 1.04. But MOST competitve X275 cars are 1.10 or below consistantly.

Here's a video of my car from years ago in the mean time. It's a [email protected] to the 1/8.

Scroll down a little bit, this is the Snathuff site. There's a time slip posted from Ron's car. a 1.05.
