    Post 0 - 60mph calculation from time slips!!!

    I found this method on another site about how to calc. your 0-60 times fairly accurately using the times from your 1/4 time slips so I developed a nice little Excel spreadsheet. Check it out and let me know if you like it! It seems to be fairly accurate on a few that I tested. Maybe this is work a sticky or copy into a FAQ???

    What do you enter for the 330' and 1000' if the track doesn't record them? Both of mine have NONE listed.

    How accurate is this thing? I just entered all of my info and it tells me that I did 0-60 in 5.7 secs...
    Here is the info I used,
    R/T- .97
    60'- 2.12
    330- 5.92
    1/8- 9.03 @80.03
    1000- 11.65
    1/4- 13.85 @101.97

    What can I say... I am slow, first time at the track ever and before headers, catback, and torque arm.

    I think 13.85 is about right on for 5.7. And yeah, if it was your first time, that could have alot to do with it, but not eactly sure...but the time and 0-60 seem to coincide.

    Very cool... I hope it's accurate. People at work are always asking me what my car does 0-60.

    I usually tell them my best is a 1.72 to f with their heads since they don't know the difference...

    ok... i reenterd everything the way it was supposed to be.. i didn't quite understand it at first. I just made up a number between my 7.07 1/8 mile and my 11.01 1/4 time. and it came out with a 2.358 0-60. I entered a 9.02 for the 1000 foot marker.. just went somewhere in between. If there any way to do it without the 1000 foot??

    Try using this program a guy on one of my other posts made

    http://www-personal.umich.edu/~kyleklan/sixty.exe

    I think it didn't need 1000ft or something like that. Click the link then click open.

    Yeah, the guy who wrote the program isn't too confident in the HP calc, but the 0-60 is pretty accurate.

    That is one hell of a potent LT1 you got there, what are your mods?

    LT4 hot cam kit, 58mm TB, hooker LT's and a TNT 150 shot. PCM for less programming and everything smog deleted... AC and heater gone too. 9 inch with 4.11's, spec stage 2 clutch, Random tech torque arm, lakewood 50/50 shocks in the rear, spohn LCA's The block and heads are bone stock. Although it's time for a new motor cause i blew out a ringland my last trip to the track so i have another block i'm gettin ready to clean up and install some better pistons but gonna try to keep stock displacement for now just to get the car back on the road. By the way.. this is all in a 3rd gen Formula.

    Thanks... It gets the job done.. I deffentily want bigger and better but budget wise it's gonna be time before i really get what i want. For now i'm just doing a budget rebuild right now, .030 over with forged pistons. So that should get me my 10 second slip pretty easy.

    it's pretty stealthy with the cutouts capped...a little too quiet. But if you ever see a POS lookin black formula with a ram air hood and true duel exhaust be carefull

    Nice times... Well.. the budget 355 is out the door now. I decided to go with a completely forged bottom end 383 with 4 bolt splayed mains and solid roller conversion. Also gonna fill the block up to the freeze plugs for a little more strength. Should be good for low 9's on the juice and easy 10's on the motor.. Can't wait.. should be mid summer when it's done. See if i can't get my 0-60 down into the 1's..

    Says I pull a 2.299 0-60 with a 1.59 60' - 10.4@131

    If that's right, well, shoot -

    0 - 60 mph Worksheet
    The formula appears to have been derived from a second order regression. This formula will be moderately accurate for exactly one car. The car the regression was calculated for.

    It is not general and will not fit any car that has a different weight, different peformance curve, etc. Every modification done will affect the formula.

    Bottom line, I don't think this is terribly useful (assuming that I understand it correctly).

    This seems pretty cool but I woder if the HP given is RWHP or FWHP and if the weight is total weight with yourself in it?

    Is there a java based version or web based version of this? I choose not to run microsoft excell on my mac. Here is my times:
    r/t 9.439
    60ft 2.2022
    330ft 6.0452
    1/8et 9.1400
    1/8mph 80.23
    1/4et 13.9591
    1/4mph 102.02

    Edit:
    Right before I crossed the finish line my car was shifting at about 100 mph. What gear was I in? I know 1st will take me to about 50-60, so where does 2nd, 3rd, and 4th shift at?

    3.43 Seconds to 60 not bad, faster than some super cars off the line, I give it back at the other end or the track.

    Ok, so if my TBSS does 5.99 0-60 (according to the HPT data log of my runs)...what will my 1/4 be?

    I had my TM removed when I had a performance TC installed, along with a Transgo shift kit. This was done on a dyno with a reputable tuner.
