    1/4 mile times

    Ran a 13.01 at Castrol park on all season tires. Went back and ran 12.83 on MT street radials. About 2300 ft elevation. Hot night so everyones time were slow. My buddy has a Davenport tuned supercharged Vet could only post 12.1. It would be nice if people posting E.T.s would state the altitude of the track for a better comparison. My V is bone stock with 26000 km and i would like to know if it's times are consistent for a V at that altitude. Reaction time was only .268.

    Your times actually are not that bad for that elevation. At around sea level in Florida I've seen em run at best Mid 12's. I read of people getting low 12's but have not seen it for myself at least when the car is stock.

    It would be helpful if you'd post your trap speeds and the DA for the day of the runs. And reaction time does not affect actual et.

    Thanks for that link. I had no idea that existed. Just posted up my times from back in April.

    Trap speed at 12.83 was 109. Whats the difference between altitude and density altitude? I have heard that reaction time isn't included in et from a couple of people but most say it is. If it's not included then why the lights? Why not just go when your ready? Sorry for my ignorance but I have only raced twice.

    Reaction time has no effect on your ET.
    Except for the reaction time, the clock starts the moment you move.

    You have the guys that race for money= whomever crosses the line first. (RT is involved)

    And the guys who cars are faster= ET

    Generally speaking

    Be careful stupidfast. Once you start racing you will want to go faster and spend more money. It is an addiction. A slippery slope my friend.

    I've run at Castrol 12.6@113. Rt.1.83. 60ft. 2.042. Air aid & ram air. Michelin Super sports. Think car would do a 12.4 here at this altitude if i was better at getting off line. Good fun . Lol

    DA includes weather considerations (temperature, barometric pressure, humidity) along with the altitude component.

    Re: 1/4 mile times

    Density Altitude is a much better reference to power than just altitude alone. Around 70 degrees every 7 degrees of temperature drop is worth about 1% more power, 7 degrees rize will cost you 1% power. True Barametric pressure is a direct ratio. I live at 4800ft my barometric pressure varies from a high of 25.5 inhg to 24.60 inhg. Right now it is 24.99inhg so my power would be down 16.5% from sea level at the same temperature and water grains in the air.
