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. /images/graemlins/smiles


Reaction time :1.024 :sleeping: 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.

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 /images/graemlins/wink. 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.

Nope not reading the car in the other lane. It was a geo metro. no kidding it was funny as hell.


The 2nd race was with a purple GTO that wipped my ass. He had atleast 2 carlinghts on me.

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 /images/graemlins/smiles 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. /images/graemlins/wink

I talked to the owners of the track today (monroe speedway). They said the track is about 225ft shy of a REAL 8th mi. Also I asked him why was my time so fast. I asked how long it had been from the time the "timmer" had been calibrated. He laughed and said never. So My viper isn't a factory freak. /images/graemlins/sad


I will not be going to the that track again. I'll find a REAL track and go there. I'll post times after I get some real track time. I'm glade you guys brought it up. I missed my dyno appointment today, so I'll have to try again another time.
