¼ Mile Horsepower Calculator
       
MPH Weight       HP
     
Enter the MPH and Weight and
Click on Calculate...
HP = Weight * (MPH / 234) ^3

¼ Mile ET & MPH Calculator #1
       
Weight HP     ET MPH
   
Enter the Weight and HP and
Click on Calculate twice...
MPH = 234 * (HP / Weight) ^ .3333
ET = 1353 / MPH

¼ Mile ET & MPH Calculator #2
   
ET     MPH
   
Enter the ET or MPH and
Click on Calculate...
ET = 1353 / MPH
MPH = 1353 / ET
¼ Mile ET & 1/8 Mile ET Conversions
   
¼ Mile ET     1/8 Mile ET
   
Enter the ¼ Mile ET or the 1/8 Mile ET and
Click on Calculate...
¼ Mile ET = (1/8 Mile ET + .22) / .655
1/8 Mile ET = (¼ Mile ET * .655) - .22

Rearend Ratio MPH RPM Trans Ratio Conv Slip%   Tire Height
 
Enter the Rearend Gear Ratio, the ¼ Mile MPH,
the RPM, the Transmission top gear ratio,
Conv Slip% and
Click on Calculate...
Tire Height = (Rearend Ratio * MPH * 336.136 * Trans Ratio * Conv Slip%) / RPM
Engine Displacement Calculator
       
Bore Stroke # of Cylinders     Displacement
   
Enter the Bore in inches, the stroke in inches,
the number of cylinders, and
Click on Calculate...
Displacement = (Bore / 2) ^2 * PI * Stroke * # of cylinders
Tire Height & Width Calculator
       
Tire Width
(mm)
Aspect Ratio
(1-100)
Wheel Diameter
(in)
  Tire Height
(in)
Tire Width
(in)
 
Enter the tire width in millimeters, the aspect ratio,
the wheel diameter in inches, and
Click on Calculate...
Tire Height(in) = (Width(mm) / 25.4 * Aspect Ratio / 100 * 2) + Wheel diameter
Tire Width(in) = Width(mm) / 25.4

  Tire Width
(mm)
Aspect Ratio
(1-100)
 
Enter the tire height in inches, the tire width in inches,
the wheel diameter in inches, and
Click on Calculate...
Tire Width(mm) = Tire Width(in) * 25.4
Aspect Ratio = (Tire Height - Wheel Diameter) / 2 / Tire Width * 100
Effective & Equivalent Gear Ratio Calculator
         
New Tire Height Old Tire Height Original Ratio     Effective Ratio Equivalent Ratio
   
Enter the New tire height, Old tire height,
and the original rear gear ratio.
Click on Calculate...
Effective Ratio = (Old tire height / New tire height) * Original ratio
Equivalent Ratio = (New tire height / Old tire height) * Original ratio
