At 500 feet it was 8.09 @ 68, at the 1/8 it was 9.61 @ 75, at the 1/4 it was 14.88 @ 94. The 1/8 and 1/4 times matched my time slip pretty close so I have confidence in them.

Your et is very close to mine but higher mph so I can't make a guess with complete confidence but maybe 9.5 @ 78?

Sure would like to make it out to Two-Lane Blacktop someday with my Jeep, love those hole-in-the-wall tracks. We had one up here for a couple years but it sits in limbo with the lawyers now.

thats what this dragstrip went through back in 2006. hopefully everything works out.. this dragstrip is actually really nice. can go down the strip non stop with no delays. everyone is extremely nice. and helpful.the track is owned by a older woman. the one you here in the s10 video.

that part was for the mph from 1/8 to 1/4. theres a link that will open u up to microsoft word that shows you this huge chart showing 500ft to 1/8th to 1/4 mile times. its a link....but this
CALCULATING SPEED AT TWO-LANE'S 500 FT. TO 1/8 & 1/4 MI
If you regularly compete at Two-Lane and would like to know what your speed would be at a full 1/8 mile or even a ¼ mile run, this is the formula that will predict a super close speed in both the 1/8 and ¼ mile tracks.

At Two-Lane’s 500 foot track you’ll multiply your speed by 1.06. This is your corrected speed in an 1/8 mile. Now to get your ¼ mile speed simply multiply your 1/8 mile speed by 1.25. Again, this will give you a very close idea of your ¼ mile speed.

Good luck and good racing. IS FOR YOUR 1/4 MILE MPH

Actually your real time is what you have on those slips....500ft run at 8. something. With drs i can see you break into high 13s-14 flat but not with those stock 20's/shityears and your mods. Look up BlackRamHemi and you'll see his track progression with mods

i agree with some of that. but doesnt elevation,humidity, temp, temp of car, the way you launch, wind speed, ect so on and so on. i mean theres several factors right.

Well he uses his 4wd to his advance to gain traction but I wanna say it adds 300lbs or so but don't quote me on that. Which is not gonna make much of a difference maybe .1 or .2 at most but with his 17" drs and other bolt ons+ plus a tune-able pcm you wouldn't stand a chance with the guy at this point (he's got his shifting down plus he has alot of track experience). That's why I keep saying your more likely a 14. something but you'll get more info as far as 4gen 1/8 and 1/4 mile times on Dodge talk an NA dodge....Just keep up with modding your truck and you'll definitely break into the 13s in no time, maybe 12s like a another 2011 dodge rt with a tuned B&G PCM juicing (on DT).

I'd be interested to see what your truck runs on in the 1/4 mile. Do you plan to get some time slips that show it?

Calculators are ok for guesstimating but they won't be extremely accurate.

I wish I could but all the tracks here I Arkansas are all 1/8th mile and the one 500 ft track.. I live in Conway ar which is in central Arkansas . So I would have to make a trip out of state to the closest one. The way I look at it at 500 ft if I get into the high to mid 7s I will be in the 13s.
