  • Trap Speeds

    Why are my trap speeds faster than cars in the 16's yet w/ my crappytalistic driving my car didn't get there


    I wasn't peeling out


    I actually didn't really move AT ALL in the beginning

    I remember Vin saying something about peeling out making them faster, but I didn't peel out, I just , shit i don't think I even chirped

    (could it have been my ZOOM ZOOM kicking in?)

    if their cars accelerate faster, but have shorter gearing their engiens my not produce enough power to hit the same trap speed as yours, but they may move faster at first. its possible to go faster but take longer then some one in a 1/4 if they accelerate better but dont get as much time between shifts.

      they have that much better of a launch then you, that's why.

      Jay and I with his old engine ran almost the same times, but I trapped 8 mph or more higher. my 60' was also .2 slower.

          The answer is in your 60' time...or 20 meter time...whatever you weirdos go by down there.

            Yes sir,


            Let me give you my 60' times, give me a segundo


            R/T --60 Foot ---- 330 Foot---1/8 Mile---1/8 MPH---1000 FT---1/4 Mile ---1/4 MPH
            0.927
            -----2.696--- 7.455 --- 11.332---63.300 ---0.000 ------17.468 --80.510



            So yeah, and my car's gears are supa short


            and the reaction time suked


            and I think the 60 footer too

                uhh i dont think 80 is faster than cars in the 16's man. But yeah, that 60 foot is horrible for a rear wheel drive car as light as you. Especially since you said it wasnt peeling out.

                  my 60 foot was 2.48 (with shit bald tires), my trap was 85.79 mph (this was a 16.1 run). Hopefully you can compare a lil bit.

                    No no no


                    You don't understand, in the first couple of seconds

                    The 60 foot time

                    My car wasn't MOVING


                    it bogged down cuz I threw in the clutch and it just bogged and didn't move
