That looks like 1/4 to me 12 sec just over 100mph.
Look at the van's front end. It is sitting very low... I am guessing a big block is weighing it down.

a 12 second quater is about the speed of a brand new viper acr (or whatever their super version is). seems abit tought to believe coming from a van, regardless of the engine.

Think about it... a gutted van is not more weight than a tuna can. Put a big block in in and a good tranny and that thing will toast almost anything in a straight line.

Remember the GMC "Jimmy" Typhoon with the Grand National engine? That thing was fast. It is definitely feasible to build a 12sec van.

It would be pretty funny to take that thing on the road, pull up to a nice looking rice rocket, and then smoke his arse I feel sorry for the guy in the camaro... getting beat by a van must feel pretty bad, no matter what they have under the hood.
