Ok, I took the video put it into my Sony Vegas Video Editor. This MPG Video frame rate was 30fps. I latched some basic SMPTE time code so I could get an idea how fast the truck got to various speeds and I figured out some times throughout those 2 runs.......
In the editor I was easily able to determine the frame where the truck first began to move, can clearly see the speedo on both tests. Using that data here are numbers:
0-60mph = 5.235 secs
0-100mph = 12.242 secs
70-100mph = 5.721 secs
Unfortunately we cant see beyond 100mph since Ford didn't feel the need to use a 130mph speedo. :thumbsup
Nice work Matt.. nice work.
Correct, but he's not claiming 12.2 in the quarter. Its actually on par for a 12.9x or so if you consider the speed to 100mph. Again.. we dont have tire diameter or slippage on take-off so trying to determine the 1/4 mi from that video is frivolous.If the truck is doing 0-60 in 5.2sec. The top end pull must be enormous. a 0-60 5.2sec car will not do a 1/4 in 12.7-9 sec unless the 0-60 is out of whack due to wheel spin.:rock:rock:woot:
Spartan. You had me at 275whp. LOL
I just watched the vid and it looks like the tires are breaking loose in first and into second gear. I bet you could shave 1/2 a second of the 0-60 time with the right rubber or a little less boost at launch. God these trucks are turning into monsters.
