Quick Question

Just a quick question I've been wondering.

Assuming a 3,000 pound car, how much power is required to...

Run 15.0
Run 14.0
Run 13.0
Run 12.0
Run 11.0
Run 10.0

Just in general. I know it really depends on the launch, but there are some cars that can't break certain lines no matter how well they launch.

Thanks,
-Falken

A quick Google will give plenty of power calculators - just plug in the weight and how fast ya wanna go......

I'll never google anything. That would be logical.

Thanks
