My guess would be a 60ft in the 2.0 region. So it might be possible with slicks but on a normal track night on street tires I would bet against that by a lot.

I have a 88 CRX that only traps 64 in the 1/8 and it runs consistent 11.0s
The 94 launched in 4x4 will cut a good 60ft. But the LEAP to 2nd gear at a 1.47 ratio is what kills the speed. But hey.. I've only been racing for over 20years.. what do I know?

It's slow cuz it's a Ranger ( with the exception of D's and Nicks)

It's slow because it's 4x4

It's slow because there is no weight over the rear axle.


the list goes on. it's a Daily Driver work truck, not a Mclaren.
