My 1st drag runs 1/8 mi

It didn't have the mph it wasn't recored.

On the two runs I got in. Boy...did I suck. I need to go more. [img]/images/graemlins/smiles[/img]


Reaction time :1.024 Time: 8.024

Reacton time: .503 Time 7.209


I noticed I was right at 6,000rpm at the end of the runs so that should be between 80-85mph. How does that sound for a stock acr.


On the 1st run, all I did was spin almost the whole 1/8th mile.

The 2nd run was much better. But I feel the car has MUCH better times in it. What do you say.

at 85 mph.


The 8.0 sounds right and you should be in third around 90 mph.

Re: My 1st drag runs 1/8 mi

yes it was a 8th of a mile track. My 1st reaction time was crap. I think I was spinning right off the line so that time was really really bad or maybe I was just waiting for the other car to get a good head start [img]/images/graemlins/wink[/img]. The 2nd run was better, I just felt the car had more in it.

Here is what I think I need to learn feel free to add.


1.) Control spin off the line. The reason this is a issue, if you remember I used to have a neon where I just spun untill I got traction, that would give the best 60ft times. The DSM I had...I would dump the clutch at 4800rpm-5000rpm and it would spin just a tad and hook right up. The viper is VERY differant from anything I've raced before.

2.) Stop the car from rolling while staged. I would have to hold the clutch and the brake or the car would roll. So what about using some tape or something to hold the button on the ebrake? That way I could just drop the ebrake while I hold the rev at about 1800-2000rpm.

3.) There was one more thing...but I forgot.

3.) Let air out of the tires. All these runs where made with 45psi in the tires. hehehe. I was excited. I'm thinking something like 15-20psi should be good.

Re: My 1st drag runs 1/8 mi

I agree that there is no way you could have run a 7.2 in the 1/8 with a stock viper.

Usually a good run in a stock viper is high 7's or really low 8's. I would say that a 7.2 time in the 1/8 would be a 10.8-9 in 1/4 mile time.

I guess what I am saying is that an 8.0 is pretty good.

Re: My 1st drag runs 1/8 mi

I think in Columbus I was in the 7.80's in the 1/8th. My car just had exhaust and filters and first time driving. So if you ran 7.20's I must stink.

Re: My 1st drag runs 1/8 mi



I thought it sounded off...but hey, that's why I'm here. TO LEARN. A geo metro did a 9.xxx I got the slips, maybe my car is faster then most...maybe the timer at the 1/8mi strip is busted, maybe the track is a little shorter. Hell I don't know.


8 ball: Feel free to come to Seattle and see MY nice shiny 01 Red GTS ACR. I'll be more then happy to give you a ride. Feel free to contact WAVCA. Heck you may even see pics from the Edmond's 4th of July parade. Yea, that's me the one doing the burnouts [img]/images/graemlins/smiles[/img] Or how can I forget Renton river days. I parked were it says "do not park". Oh what about the 100+ feet of big fat black marks I left on Ft. Lewis. :-) 8ball...what kind of viper do you have??? Oh yea, When I get the pics back from Xbox game dept...I'll be sure to post'em. You can think I'm a troll. I'm ok with that. [img]/images/graemlins/wink[/img]

Re: My 1st drag runs 1/8 mi

tanked, no one intelligent is saying you dont have a viper but if you were logical enough you would see that there is something wrong with your numbers rather than making a moronic statement like, " maybe my car is faster than most". your car would be a freak of nature to be quicker than a 600+ rwhp viper using nitrous!!!!!!! DON'T THINK SO. even your assumed mph should tell you its wrong! you stated you think 80-85 through the traps with a 7.2 et. never bro, 7.2 would equililate into over 650 horses at the wheels high 10 sec 1/4 mile pass trapping the 1/8 at well over 100mph! I am done on this issue. call the track and tell them they need to recalibrate there equiptment ok. i isn't working Bro.
