Weight to MPH comparison

I weighed my truck at the track, but i'm not sure how accurate these numbers are..

2000 F350 2wd CC SB 6600 lbs with me in it, just over 1/4 tank of fuel, tailgate removed (spare still on). All seats, etc, in tact. Truck also has 5th wheel rails. To me it seems a bit on the light side. I weight 160 lbs.

My buddies 97 T/A weight 3880 with him, subs/amps, full interior, and 285s up from 315s in the rear for comparisons sake. To me which also seems light.

How accurate do these numbers seem?

I'm asking to see if my dyno numbers match up with the track times. I ran 14.3 @ 102 with 2.6 60 ft best. Trans also took a couple seconds to shift into O/D.

Dyno numbers are in sig...

What do you guys think?

Re: Weight to MPH comparison

Sounds pretty close, your 2wd so there is a big lop off the weight.

My truck is 8800 with 100 or so gallons of diesel and 8 gallons of water, full tool box and such...

Re: Weight to MPH comparison

I'm hoping to get some mid to low 13s out of it with slicks. Think that is doable with that MPH?

Re: Weight to MPH comparison

I did a 14.31 at 93 mph... I was weighing about 8300 lbs...

Seems like 13's should be pretty easy for you!!

Re: Weight to MPH comparison

if i can get that 2.6 down to a 1.9 or better do you think low 13s are in reach?

Re: Weight to MPH comparison

Yeah seems like you should be lower then that. I think mine was around 1.9-2.0... maybe you just need some slicks!!

Re: Weight to MPH comparison

Yeah. I am gonna buy some before i go to the track next. I'm actually lined up with a pair right now so we'll see what happens. I'm hoping i can e.t. 13.3 or better.

It just seems like none of the calculators match up to my hp and weight when i plug then numbers in and my mph wont match up with the calculators for hp too so i dunno

Re: Weight to MPH comparison

102 at 6600 lbs is 475 rwhp. Looking at your sig, seems to be right on.
