    Default 1/4 Mile Times

    Has anyone here taken their Z to a drag strip? I know the classic Z isn't really at home there but I'm curious about other's ETs. I haven't taken my current car but my last car, a early '73 240Z, would do 16.0X in the 1/4 at SIR in Tucson which is just over 3000 ft elevation. I took it one time and try as I might I couldn't break into the 15s. It was basically stock, 6-2-1 header 2.5" pipe through a glasspack resonator and a turbo muffler, electric fan, round top SU carbs. Anybody else tried it just for grins?

    About 22 years ago - I had a '76 280Z, I did a 15.8 quarter mile. I don't think my current car could touch that (needs head work and possibly rings). I used to take anything and everything to Old Bridge when I was in high school, including my parents' Dodge Aries K wagon (did like a 19.00 1/4), my '59 Chevy Sedan Delivery (somewhere in the 16.5 sec. range)....you name it!

    I was thinking of taking my daily driver, a Lexus GS400. That should do a low 14 second quarter mile...
