I ran across a calculator today to get an idea of what kind of acceleration the low rider will have.
put in weight, tire size, gear ratio, hp and some other stuff. It will tell you alot of stuff about g-force 0-60 time etc.

It had a theoretical 0-60 time of like 4.5 sec. ( assuming it would go that fast)
launching at .4 g in 6th gear, 1.1g in 5th if the tires would hook (by their calculations it would just smoke the tires)

Not sure how accurate it is , but its fun to play with the numbers just to see how little changes affect the performance.
go on a diet , loose 10 lbs, gain a few 10ths in the 200ft time. see what a few extra hundred rpm does to the top end.
