quote Hugh Guynes:

Bench racing is fun plus it doesn’t cost anything. So here is my guess. With Tom’s Gt2 body the Cd is certainly better than a stock Tiger ( Cd .45 ) but not as good as a C6 Z06 Corvette (Cd .34 ). Tom’s car weighs about 250 lbs. less than my Tiger and with my motor would have a power/weight ratio just under 4 lbs./hp . I have seen a Z06 with the same power to weight as my Tiger run a 173 mph 1/2 mile. I think with the right gear the GT2 body could run 167-168 mph in the 1/2 mile.

Yeah, that’s what I was trying to get to… I know Tom has those wide flares, but certainly no "near vertical" windshield!

Next thing you’ll be posting that Tom wants to trade his GT2 body for your monster motor 😯 🙄 😆

Thanks for the fun discussion.
