Any one use a moroso power speed calculator. I was wondering if the HP rating was shaft HP Or rear wheel HP Mine says a 3500 lbs car with 450 Hp should be in the 11's Does this sound right. I know every thing would have to be set up right, But would could that be in the ball park?

The MPH is closer to correct than ET,because most people do not maximize their combo.They always have a reason why they used that convertor or those headers or something along those lines.

This is based upon a full quarter mile pass where most cars actually reach WOT in high gear. Your horse power may vary on an eighth mile track.
