Actually Bob McAtee’s car was an F 4 speed

Thanks John,

That is interesting  info, and I used it (and a few assumptions) to estimate a speed at the end of the standing start mile.

  • Assumed  constant acceleration for first ¼ mile
  • Assumed constant acceleration  for last ¾ mile
  • Assumed the average speed for the first ¼ mile was 45 mph  [(0+90) /2]
  • Assumed the average speed for  the last ¾ mile was  (?avg)  =  [( 90 + end speed) /2]
  • Then  ¼ mile * 45mph  + ¾ mile * ?avg  = 90.7  mph, and from that ?avg  = 106 mph average speed for the last ¾ mile.
  • Then   [(90mph + end speed mph)/2  = 106 mph, and from that end speed  = 122 mph  

So, it seems like an end speed of 122 mph at the mile mark might be in the ball park (assuming my math is OK)..

It is slowly warming here in the Great Wisconsin Northwoods.

It was on sand, on the beach, and on bias ply tires.  I can't imagine trying that.  Also, I believe the way the Standing Start Mile Competition was run, the 90.7 was the 'average' speed, not the top speed at the end of the mile.  They would measure the time it took to cover a mile from a dead stop,   1 mile divided by the time taken would yield the 'average' rate of speed.  Of course, the car started at '0', so it had to be going more than 90.7 at the end of the run for the 'average' to be 90.7 mph.

Quarter mile tests at the time were about 16 seconds at 90 mph through the traps, and 0-100 mph times at about 20 seconds.  I'm sure the G was going a lot faster than 90.7 at the end of the mile.  The 'Flying Mile' test was the top end test, and for the G that turned out to be 143 mph by Bob McAtee.  Your mileage may vary. ;-)

Believed they did this on sand.

That probably accounts for the top end speed

Would not want to spin anywhere during that run or it may have been a worse top end??!!

Thanks for this link.

Read this and it seems a bit slow for one mile . " Faubel did set the record of 90.7 mph for the Standing Mile Acceleration in the 300-G."
