    1/4 mile question ???

    I want to take the car to the track this year. I spend all this $$$$ I minds well. My question is:

    1. If I do not launch it (because I cannot afford gearsets right now) will I still be able to soft launch and get a pretty acurate trap speed ? That is my only wish. If not how much do you think it would be off by ? I will probably roll off the line or slip at like 2k.

    thanks

    Trap speed in the 1/4 is horsepower. Plain and clear.
    The launch will not effect the MPH near as much as the E.T. I would guess a fairly soft launch 2.10-2.20 would be between two and three MPH off of a full launch of 1.80.

    I agree. I pull 2.2 60's and I trap at 104mph @ 13.5 in the 1/4. Not good enough yet, but getting there soon.

    If i remember correctly, you have an RSX.......so your trap speed will change a lot with different launches, if you have a lot of wheel spin, your trap is gonna be 4-5 mph faster than if you had no wheel spin, i'd say if you had DR's, your et will drop and so will your trap speed. I could be wrong.
