Default Went to the drags yesterday!

We've only got an itty-bitty 1/10th mile locally, but I did a 1.884 60 foot, it was my first time out at the strip so Im pretty damn happy with that!



I was .12 seconds away from getting into Pro

look at that squat!
You're either launching your ass off, or your shocks are a bit weak. Since you have a nice 60' time, I'll assume it's the launch. Nicely done!


Any way to figure out what your quarter mile time would be based on what you have?

Not accurately. Everyone has different methods that they say are true, but none of them seem reasonable to me. Drag goes up with the velocity squared, so does kinetic energy, so its pretty unrealistic to calculate it out.

Ill just have to come out to mission sometime soon

I'll be installing an ALK soon, hopefully that'll help with the squat.

I'm looking forward to that. Now that my piece is done, I should head out there too.

As for the squat, it's good stuff.
You're pulling a 1.8s 60', which is pretty good for this early in the drag season. Get some more launches under your belt, and the car will fly. I know it's got the power. Hell, it's trying to pop a wheelie during the launch. That's usually reserved for dragstyle bug's, and 8 second stompers.
