Default Quater Mile Time Calculator

Heres an interesting link i found where you can find out your approx Quater mile timing you only need to know your Engine H.P & Vehicle Weight, It might help engine Builders in achieving their goal for best timing.You can also know how much power is your engine making by giving Vehicle speed & Car weight.
N.B :One should not take these result for granted cause the result may vary on track depending upon Driver capabilities.

heres the link

I must say, this one is pretty accurate compared to the others i've come across.

Vtec
Power - 106 bhp
Weight - 2171 lbs (985 kgs)
1/4 Mile time - 16.94 secs
1/4 mile time as tested by OD - 16.96 secs

I wonder how they calculate the launch performance between Rwd, Fwd and Awd cars? Maybe i'm just plain lucky to get such close results with the Vtec.

A few more comparisons will sort things out.

Hmmm...I think this calculator is a little too idealistic. According to its algorithms, the Esteem is quicker than the OHC 1.5. This is something I find a little hard to swallow. And I KNOW that the 1.0 Santro is atleast 2 seconds quicker than the 1.2 Palio (non-NV).

This thing does not take into account gearing, which plays a VITAL role in a drag scenario. Having said that, it's a decent indicator of where you ought to stand for most cars.

Is 985 KG Weight, includes driver? we need to consider the driver weight too.

That depends on who drove the car for the OD test. Could have been Aspi (90 kilos i presume).
