I have a new project that is going together and will be 2700# or just under and have 925-950 RWHP.
Just curious what I could see out of this combo.

275's,'glide and it's a boosted combo.

Low 8s, maybe high 7s. 2700lbs isn't that light, all things considered.
show me how to get an old school nova or chevelle or camaro to 2700 with 200lb driver. i bet its not that easy

I will post pics soon but it's not a nova and chevelles are coil spring cars that are 3300-3400#+. I just sold a twin turbo 70.

Factory weight on this car is 2520# and I will lighten it considerably but adding the 25.5 & turbos should bring it back to factory weight.

That power in a chassis car would go mid 7s. But it would be 2200 lbs and a 3/4 scale pro stock body.

2700 lbs is light for a car that was once 3600+

Ron rhoads is what 2750 or so in race trim with his 68 camaro..an if using wallerace e.t calculator remember he said 925-950 rwhp..the e.t calculator you use fly wheeel numbers..so he would be in the 1100 hp zone..

Ya, light is the way to go. I was heavy on my estimate and low on my hp estimate,realistically it could be as light as 2500# with driver and 1100rwhp.

D...you need to weigh that car,I doubt is that light and would say its close too a stock "Post" Chevy II weight...I'm thinking 2700 wet without driver as it sits.

I'm gonna weigh it this weekend. About 1000# less than the chevelle I'm hoping.
