    10 Second Cars

    Just wondering, what sort of BHP do you need to do the 1/4mile in 10seconds?

    Most at POD were doing 13-15 seconds and they were GSI Turbos VXRs etc

    I know the time will change depending on driver, just after an idea of power to do a 10 second time.

    Can FWD cars auctally get under 10 seconds though?

    Even the TOTB vauxhall cars were only doing the 1/4 mile in mid to high 11's

    I think FWD has serious limitations as you will have seen them scrabbling for grip off the start. 4WD and RWD are at an advantage already with better grip off the line - I think you would still need to be putting out 600BHP plus though (total guess).
