Does this calculated HP number sound right?

Ran my junk through an online calculator and at 4160 lbs and 135 mph in the 1/4 it said 798 RWHP.

Sounds mighty high, I thought.

So I tried a couple of others, and sure enough they all said 798 HP.

Now, is this more likely to be Flywheel HP instead of rear wheel HP?

Man, if that's RWHP I'm gonna start worrying about my cast Scat crank now.

Maybe the 150 shot is giving a touch more than 150?
