Did I tell you guys I joined the 100mph (1/4 mile) club this summer at the BIR drag strip?

out of 125 racers I had the third fastest reaction time. Got me into the shoot out but I jumped the light in the finals.

Very, very pretty car.

 

But Harry should talk to a competent sound engineer about where he mounts his microphone.

He's got it on his left lapel, and everythime he turns his head to his left, the sound of his voice changes. Amateur... B) :grin:

I thought all drag racing had dropped back to the 1/8 mile.

My 300hp V-8 "back in the day" was a contender on the street. Probably mid-14s/ 90-ish on the quarter mile.

What was your trap time @fotoguzzi?

1/4 mile is still the standard. The two top fuel classes have switched to 1,000 feet, but all the other 1/4 mile classes still run a 1/4 mile. There are a number of 1/8 mile tracks out there, but around me it is still 1/4 mile is the standard.

0.035 is a nice reaction time. Good job @fotoguzzi

My neighbor across the street has a similar set up with his M240 BMW.  it's got that 8 speed auto that's super quick.  As a stick shift guy, I have to admit it's a slick set up.  it doesn't have the wild ride like my 'vette, its controlled and gets the power to pavement.    Lot's of cool do dads and huuuuge dash screens
