PostSubject: Who's Gonna Win??   Thu Dec 22, 2011 1:41 am

Kaleb and I have somewhat of a grudge match planned for next year's Flashlight Drags. His 1968 Plymouth Fury III Sport against my Crown Victoria.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

What we're wondering is which of our grandpa cruisers/cop cars will win?

The '68 Fury III:

-318cid V8
-727 3 speed auto
-3600lbs
-230hp 340lb.-ft.
-2.73 gears

-Torque peak is around 2,400 rpm

-HP peaks around 4,400 rpm



The '98 Crown Victoria:

-4.6L 281cid V8
-4-speed 4R70W auto
-4500lbs
-240hp 285lb.-ft.
-3.27 gears
-Torque peaks around 4,200 rpm

-HP peaks around 4,500 rpm.



What do you think?

I didn't know your torque peaked that high! Man, I dunno, it could go either way!

I'll still be building torque while yours is falling. That's why I asked how much your curve falls after 2,400.

And neither have any kind of helpful suspension mods.

True, but mine peaks at a higher torque so it could be matched with yours by the time 4,400rpm rolls around.

Yeah, if anything mine has more weight transfer with being softer but neither will have traction issues lol

The way they sit I would put my money on the Crown Vic. Put 373's in the fury and I think that would give it the edge.

It would be a pretty good run but my money is on the Vic.

Real close in the 1/8, but in the 1/4 it would be the Crown Vic by a long shot. I'm still going to go with the Crown Vic. Obviously very much dependent on launch on such a short track.

I'll race you guys this year in either of my 4 cylinders [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I would like to see the Sky against Linsbecks 5.0. With your car on DR's I think you will take it at the FLD's but on a full 1/4 mile I think he would catch you on the big end. That would be a fun one to watch.

Stock for stock he's faster for sure. I think I would take the 1/8, the 1/4 would be darn close.

Well I plan on making it to a few this year. I will race anyone since its all in fun. I think if I get a set of DR's it will be a different story all togethere for me though.

i have no idea, i would have to see how each car performs, the driver reactions etc. power to weight ratio is going to be a big part in this duel.

That gearing really kills it. Especially for the 1/8. However the weight does help it alot. It will be fun to watch. I hope to see alot more people at the FLD's. It is alot of fun and you dont have to have a redicously fast car to have fun. Hell my mom was thinking of racing her Maxima.

Kaleb/Tyler, there ya go! If Dave's mom brings the Maxima, you guys might have a chance at beating something! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Just kidding guys. I agree we need to get a lot more folks to show up. Everyone would have a good time. Heck, my son goes and loves every minute of it. Although, in every video of the races that I am in, you hear, go daddy go! Or.....Dave Lost!! LMAO!

Oh yeah, I figure I'll lose but I'll be catching him going past the 1/8th. The Fury really does take off once it's moving.
