The right place at the right time with the right person and the right car. This is how may day was. If you ever get the chance to meet or do business with Tracy I would tell you to jump at the opportunity this Guy is amazing. You can tell right away he puts his heart into his work. Now let me tell you about gretchen's car.this is a little difficult for me because all I see is the 1/4 mile and not road racing oh yeah I'm hooked on the nitrous this doesn't help. Cold start up the car sounds angry and wants to go wait for the rpms to drop and now hungry rumble at idle. We pull out on to the road and the car feels smooth all most stock. We get to a spot were we can open it up and Tracy says hit it as he is monitoring the gauges the car accelerates at first like a modded V6 then around 4k rpm I think not sure the car just explodes into a beast it pulls hard and harder with each shift definitely a bad ass ride. The only way I can compare the difference between your car and my car is in the launch your car feels very controllable and smooth to were with my car feels like OMG hold the F##$ on but after that they feel very much the same. The two of you must be very proud of what you have accomplished with your beautiful car and thank you both for this amazing opportunity.
Also I hope one day soon you will have the opportunity to drive my car.

Oh you can bet I'll be over there. We only have 1/8th mile tracks over here, so Memphis is the closest.

Just spoke with Rich while he was at the airport and the Fest was talked about. Looks like it's a go.

I thought I was going to be in the area last week but my schedule changed and missed out. I did contact Tracy by PM and he said they had an engine issue with Gretchen and working on a fix. Hope to see it back on the road soon.

Yeah, looks like the tensioner went out on one of the timing chains. Hopefully there wasn't any serious damage.

Ok not to be debbie downer or something like that. Will we ever see the numbers for Gretchen? I have been reading about this great car for what seems like a year. I have seen pictures, a video and read the stories. I just want dyno, 1/4 mile and 0-60 times. Will that ever happen? Whiteside created a car, Can't_C_ME is getting an upgrade, then see a SC Six, at somepoint someone has to have numbers on this stuff. I guess I can wait another six months. As long as one of these options gets me in the 0-60 under 6 seconds and at least a low 13 sec 1/4 mile I will be more then happy. I dont care about SS times and trying to beat that. I just want the pedestrian numbers.

Yep Tracy posted 2 video's and 2 time slips from Gretchen's runs. 12.4 has been the best with I think it was at 4psi's (which was lowered by accident) instead of 6psi's or better. Some are posted on my thread also. Gretchen is the truth!!

There are some calculators out there that can use the 1/8 mile ET and Trap to estimate it.

I've found this one to be pretty accurate, based on my timeslips and my 0-60 runs with the Dashhawk:

http://www.wallaceracing.com/0-60_equation.php

comes up with 0-60 MPH in 3.75 seconds...
