Listen fellas. I couldn't give a flyin fuck. Believe what you want, I was there with a brand new stop watch. Why would I say that if It didn't happen. What, you think a digital stop watch is wrong. I could see the light turned green and was sitting dead on the finish line with three other guys. We all freaked out. None of us thought they were even close to that fast either. We thought i had not pushed the button fast enough so we changed person to person and got the same times or very close to. I'm not saying its exact but its dam close. Go race them. You'll see. This was on a prepped track, not on the street. Most of them were running high 4.50's on small tires, Dough Boy was the slowest @ high 4.70's. They were all running 29.5 x 10.5 non W on 12" wide rims the first day. That's what they consider small tires. Then the next day they ran big tires and dropped down that low.
Lol come on. 4.50’s on it’s best day

Quick story to build on what you're saying.....

In my previous life as a springmaker, I was setting up a machine with a double-torsion spring for an interior center console lid. Two German fucks came to the plant to finalize the design during the set-up and brought a console with them. When I asked what the spec was going to be, one of these guys pulls out a stopwatch. When I asked what he was going to do with it, he said, "I'm going to time it from release to full-travel when the lid was completely open". Said that's how they were going to perform incoming inspection, and it was something ridiculously tight when it come to the tolerance. I told him I wasn't down for that because there will be entirely too much variation in the operator, but he disagreed.

When I went home for lunch, I grabbed my practice tree and took it back with me. When we all got back to the machine, I set the tree up and handed him the button. He had no clue what was going on. Told him to let go of the button at the flash and that we're going to do this 25 times. When he was done, his deviation was almost 8-times the proposed spec was going to allow. I said, "That's why this isn't going to work for an incoming inspection process".

I won't say the OP was missing it as far as everyone else is saying he missed it with Ol Heavy, just elaborating on your post, Colorado.

Murder nova said on his YouTube channel that his car on the street runs generally a mid to high 4.90. Obviously you arent going to make a 4.0 pass on the street. So with that ol heavy is generally a 5.20 to 5.50 truck on the street.

I think you guys that already know what your car or truck runs should find a JJ's arm drop event near you and report back how far you were from their tailights :D
