    AWD guys love to go from a dig
    high hp rwd and fwd like to race from a (t)roll.

    It's all in good fun though. Too many people take it so personally.
    to me personally, it has nothing to do with the drvetrain I have. I don't care what kind of power people put down, give me the trap speed. the cliche of honda people wanting to go from a roll and wrx people wanting to go from a dig is very old and played out. the fact remains that awd does suffer more drivetrain loss then a ff honda and you don't see wrx's saying they won't go from a roll. i'm not into street racing, so I just laugh at this stuff.

    Actually I agree with you. When I look at stats in a magazine the number I pay the most attention to (as far as accelration goes) is the trap speed. That gives the best indication of day to day real power.

    0-60 times can be very misleading due to traction and gearing (2 shifts or 3 shifts).

    I think running from a roll is more fun than from a dig. Drag racing is also cool, but dont want to break the rear doing it, so i keep it to a minimum. The really really stupid races though.. are the ones from a dig to 60 or 70.... that isnt a race at all IMO.

    i love how the kid with the cobra says racing from a roll is "more fun"...son, racing from a dig u will probably hit the same speeds as from the roll anyway...u expect a kid like me with awd to want to negate the most outstanding feature of his car (thar launch) and go right to my weakest and ur strongest point...yes yes racing a cobra from a roll sounds good yes

    Well, it does serve a purpose. It negates the driver as a variable(mostly) and showcases the car's ability/power a little less subjectivly. It's not too hard to mash the gas to the floorboard and shift maybe twice. Think of it as a rolling dyno that gives a comparison rather than numbers.

    Outta the hole, gearing and traction are essential, and driver ability plays a big part. From a 4th gear roll, all thats being tested is the overall output of the engine and aerodynamics.

    *edit* dammit, thought ya said FROM a 60-70 mph start, not TO 60 or 70. Geez, I'm slow on the uptake tonight.

    It's called a "stoplight to stoplight" race. We have lots of stoplights around here...

    that would be a race.... LOL..... If there was a straight road long enough that could be fun, better yet an oval track to keep it safe. first one to reach the finish wins.

    Diddo. Another thing, going over 80-90 mph on public streets is looking for trouble.

    Yep, I actually have all of my fun below 70mph. I'm not really into daily high speed for insurance/survivability reasons...
