    I think there are a lot of people like me that just don't do 1/4 miles. Pointless IMHO and a good way to break your car.

    Funny, 'cause I feel the same way about cone bashing. But then, at least 1/4 mile is run on a real track

    hehe...j/k. I'd rather ring one out on a road course regardless, but there is a certain amount of skill required to get a good 1/4 time, and I've found that many folks discover it is a lot harder than it looks.

    You are right...nothing beats the twisties, but there is something about raw acceleration pinning you in your seat and shifting absolutely perfectly that you make your car go a certain distance in the fastest time it possibly can...that really intrigues me.

    Don't get me wrong, I can see the attraction of the acceleration and enjoy the challenge of trying to get the best time possible. I just don't want to spend money on new clutches and the other parts that will inevitably go kerplooey! So that makes them pointless to me for that simple reason. Maybe pointless wasn't the right word.... Unattractive?

    My love is the road courses and twisties, but there is something undeniably raw and fundamental about the 1320. Launching hard with 4 wheel spin, turbo screamin, the hanging smell of race gas and tire smoke, sounds of uncorked V8's, racing yourself and the guy in the next lane, nothing quite like it. I still get butterflies, huge adrenalin rush everytime.

    and YB is right, its not as easy as it looks. I long for a dedicated track car to be able to beat weekly at both the 1/4 and local road courses.

    1/4 mile time for my ots cobb stage2 map 13.66 102.7 mph.
    p.s. what makes drag racing, if ur doing it right, so bad compared to auto x, but wat i mean doing it right means slipping the clutch not dumping it. dont get me wrong i have never done auto x, but from what i have seen they are still really hard on the engine and the tranny, not to mention the suspension and the tires, brakes, and steering components.

    i'm going to go back to the track with yet another set of tires to see if i can come close to my best run w/ the 5sp.

    we are thinking about renting the track out again so we can have the fully prepped track to ourselves.

    We=me and friends with fast cars.

    If i can't get into the 12s next time, I am going to cry.

    sick setup though!!! i thought that would be a lil faster!!!!
    i want to go with the 18g set up with meth and a low rpm launch control, i would rather have tie spin then have it stick on that gum like track. but im a panzi and dont want to wreck my tranny.
