what are some thoughts on the two..


say for example if you make 96 mph in 1/4 = approx 300hp and 100mph in 1/4 = 350hp


is that about right?

a lot more variables than that. If you had 150 hp in a go cart, you could do 100 mph by the end of the line.

Weight is the biggest factor. Trap speed will be relatively the same.

There are a lot of HP calculators out there and most is just a factor of weight and speed. Some incorporate altitude as well.
