    WRX v/s 350Z w/30 shot

    Went to a local 1/8 mile track the other night with a buddy(350Z guy). We were the ONLY 2 import guys there. Everything else was trailered in.
    Any way, we only ran against eachother once. I ran a 8.733 @77.731 mph, 60 ft was 1.895, he wan a 9.1 @ 83mph. He also got the win I think I could do better if the car was cooler, and it wasn't so damn hot. What are some of your guys 1/8 times?
    Going to Darlington on Wed, it's a 1/4 track. Anyone on here interested in going? There are usually some imports there, or atleast street driven cars.

    well, if you want to get into any more powerful cars in a pissing contest for top-end supremecy, you really need to get a bigger turbo with supporting mods..... Without the 30 shot of nawssss, the race would have been much closer since your mods put you on an even keel with a stock 350Z....

    Good run though!

    I'm sorry if this is a stupid question (I've been known to do this before) but how is it that he ran a 9.1 1/8 mile and you ran a 8.7 1/8 mile yet he won? Am I missing something here?

    Oh, and kick ass 60' time - 1.8 seconds, I have wet dreams about 60' times like that...and then I wake up and remember I am driving a FWD Honda

    The 350 crossed the finish line first and got the win light due to the 350 getting a better reaction time in all liklihood.

    If a stock WRX was racing a top fuel dragster, and the dragster didn't "react" for 10 seconds, the WRX will end up getting the win light on a 14 second run vs a 5 second run. Total time for the dragster = reaction time of 10 + 5 second ET = 15 seconds. Total time for the WRX = reaction time of .500 + 14 second ET = 14.5 seconds. Hence, the WRX crosses the finish line first.

    Think of it like there are two timers going:

    1. One that starts only when your car breaks the starting line beam and stops when you cross the finish line. This gives you your ET for your run. This is what we compare here on the forums, since it doesn't really matter if you sit at the light for 1 minute, or .500 seconds.

    and

    2. One that starts from the moment the light turns green until the beam at the end of the track is broken in your lane. This determines which car in which lane finished ahead of the other, regardless of the actual ET that either car ran. This is what matters at the track, for bragging rights, and also how trophies are won.

    Get it? Got it? Good!

    Thanks for explaining it Dan. Yea, he reacted a little better than I did, my RT was.759. Of the mph being slow, I thought so too, When I was running a stage 2 I ran the 1/4, times were
    rt---.675
    60---1.910
    330---5.676
    1/8---8.824 @ 79.03mph
    1000---11.498
    1/4---13.783 @98.92mph

    As you can see, I was almost 2 mph faster before, but it wasn't near as hot then either. When I ran on Sun, it was HOT. I'd say mid 90's, with about the same humidity. I didn't ice the intercooler or anything, cause I was only running once. If it doesn't rain tonight, maybe I will get some better times. Wish me luck.
