Re: I heard Roof\'s DLM car

Yes, Roof put me on the trailer (AGAIN!). We both managed our best times of the day.

ROOF:
Reaction .7351
60' 1.5306
330' 4.2768
1/8 ET 6.4683
1/8 MPH 112.22
1000 ET 8.3302
1/4 ET 9.8733
1/4 MPH 148.66
FINISH MARGIN 0.0576!!!

STYLES:
Reaction .8456
60' 1.4414
330' 4.1143
1/8 ET 6.3549
1/8 MPH 113.64
1000 ET 8.2453
1/4 ET 9.8204
1/4 MPH 144.46

As you can see it was a CLOSE race. Every time one of us hit a gear that person pulled ahead. Very exciting and congrats to David, he is a class act! I hope to get another shot at him soon. He did get the opportunity to go against Titan who was running 8.70's at 165! Better him than me!

Looks like you won that race. I'm confused. You got a 9.82 and Roof got a 9.87. /images/graemlins/confused /images/graemlins/confused

I agree. When I drag race I don't give a shit about reaction time. To me it comes down to which car is faster, so ET is all that matters for me.

He caught me sleeping at the light so he won the race by .0576. /images/graemlins/sad

Re: I heard Roof\'s DLM car

WHAT?? He DID NOT win the race if the above numbers are accurate. Is this an "inside joke" between the two of you? You smoked Roof. Reaction times don't mean s***.

Re: I heard Roof\'s DLM car

Trey, you have no idea what you're talking about, step back and think about it. Roof left the line 0.1105 seconds before Jason. Jason was 0.529 seconds quicker ET wise, but was still 0.0576 behind at the end of the run. It's simple math Trey, it came down to reaction time, that's where the race was won, at the line.

Re: I heard Roof\'s DLM car

They were racing 'heads up' where reaction time wins overall....even if they guy had a faster e.t. he didn't cross the line first, and the reaction time shows this....Styles was behind by .1105 seconds when they left the line. He was not able to make up the difference by the end of the quarter.

That's pure d bullshit IMHO Peter. And I TOTALLY understand EXACTLY what you're saying. I don't factor in no reaction time with ET. It's all about who crosses the finsih line 1st. PERIOD. END OF STORY. If Styles wants to smoke a damn cigarette after Roof leaves the hole, so what. Whoever crosses the finish line 1st wins. PERIOD IMHO.

Re: I heard Roof\'s DLM car

Well I just made some calls and it was explained to me a little differently. I was unaware of quite a lot I guess Peter. But I still say that's bullshit. In my eyes whoever crosses the line 1st wins the race. But if that's not they way it's been done since the beginning then who am I to offer a differing opinion.

The reaction time was the reason. Congrats to David and Jason. To bad they have you guys in classes with race cars. Congrats to Jason on ruling the dyno !!!!

I am friends (??? /images/graemlins/laughing.gif???) with the Titan guys......here is some decent smack we have going: http://www.streetcarforums.com/showthread.php?=&threadid=14793 The thread header is Viper Killer!!!!!!!!!!! These guys live about 1.5 hours away and we run mutual tracks. They had been bustin my chops about how they were going to bust my best time (9.85) with Gary's white street Supra (Gary drives the Titan car)....didn't happen so now they are all excited because a race car Stupra finally won the Stupra race instead of a Viper :rofl:

p.s. Fred....if you are reading this /images/graemlins/hiFU

Re: I heard Roof\'s DLM car

The Titan car was fast and cool to watch. But its a race car and is supposed to be fast. Yesterday they were the big fish in the little pond. But there was another Supra (from Vegas I think) at the event that was a total street car with a cage, chute and all boost no nos. This car was laying down 9.1x and 9.2x runs at 150+ all day long wtih full interior and drag radials! This particular Supra was the most impressive car at the track in my opinion.

Unless I'm missing something, Roof DID cross the line first. Reaction time measures how quickly you leave the starting line, and ET doesn't start counting until you leave the beam. So you can have a quicker ET and still lose a heads up race by not getting out of the hole quickly (as happened to Jason here), but you will NOT cross the finish line first. Crossing the line first is exactly how the winner is determined, not ET.
