then how to some funny car dragsters make it a whole quarter mile in under four and at 300+ MPH?

you sayin they spend the first half of their journey under 60MPH?

The escort might not pull 0-60 in 1.8, but I'm pretty sure there are vehicles that can do it a few times per weekend.

0-60 is VERY possible with big slicks, a car that runs low 11s should hit high 1's in 0-60 on slicks

but i think its estimated, its probably in the 2;s somewhere

THink about it...what does a McLaren run in the 1/4mile? 11.6 or so? It also does 0-60 in like 3 seconds with a good driver...ON STREET TIRES

This escort with big slicks probably gets better traction than that mclaren, and runs faster in the 1/4mile...

I would guestimate on solid 2.5 0-60 with big slicks
