    Stock 1/4 Mile Times and More!

    Post by AJracer33a on Thu Jul 12, 2012 10:40 pm

    This is in the making. I am doing A LOT of research. Once this is finished, it will be awesome.

    It contains information and ET's of BONE STOCK DSM's/Evo's.

    Everything with a "?" mark is still being researched.

    Below is a picture of my spreadsheet document. I will be updating this periodically.

    I like this alot! Its nice to see what progress you are making especially if your car wasnt completely stock during ur first time making a pass with it.

    Yep. Just remember that these results were made by professional drivers.

    Though it does not take much skill to go in a straight line.

    That's why I race dirt modifieds.

    i resent this statement. lol.

    define skill. its different with every type of racing. try perfecting trying to launch hundreds and hundreds of horsepower, without too much spin, consitently, without bogging out and falling on your face, or slipping the clutch too much and killing your 60ft. try mastering that in FWD and AWD, then try shifting, and getting your shift points right for each gear depending on setup. everyone thinks they can drive until they go to the track and realize "crap i shift pretty slow" or "dammit i only cut a 1.9 60ft?".....

    dont knock the drag racing or the assumed lack of skill involved until youve gone and and laid down some 11s or 10s.

    i know people who still cant drag race after years of passes, and ive seen other people who get it down after 1 day. first pass in my car was like a 13.3 or 13.5 (and that was on my first tune at like 315 whp, and i was barely running stock numbers). 6 passes later i had consistent 12.6's down and 1.7XX 60fts one after another.

    just sayin.bounce

    I agree that drag racing is not "easy". There is a lot involved.

    But, pertaining to dirt racing, we have to "launch" kind of EVERY restart. On dirt, with 500-600HP, and in my case running the IMCA modifieds, hard tires and skinny tires (compared to the dirt late models). For 30+ laps which can be anywhere from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. With no breaks.

    It requires you to be quite athletic. Which means a lot of exercise and hydration.

    My first couple passes down the drag strip, I did realize there is still quite a bit going on. Every time I was in the staging lane, I kept telling myself I need to look at my boost gauge. I did a total of 9 passes that night and never once looked at the gauge during a pass because I was too focused on the launch, shifting points, etc.

    In the dirt modified, I have no problem looking at my temp/oil gauges. Not because there is a lot going on, but I have more time too look at it. We have 2 straight-aways per lap. And more time than a 10-15 second pass. So you tend to get in a groove, especially after doing it for so many years.

    Every type of racing has its hard things. Some people may never become an average driver for that type of racing.

    If you aren't already involved in some sort of auto racing, your trip to the strip may be very complicated and difficult.

    i wasnt taking away from dirt track racing or whatever. so im not going to comment on that.

    my reply was strictly drag racing. but yes i understand. all im saying is that you are running 10 second EIGHTH miles in a pretty basic car, and you already just admitted it was difficult, so try that with double the power, on different types of tracks, and everything happens in seconds.

    basically all im saying is, retract your statement that going straight is easy lol i mean hell, your last response contradicts that anyway Wink

    Driving in a straight line is not easy. There. HAHA!

    I know I under-estimated it. It wasn't all that difficult for me, but I have a racing background. Definitely more to it than what you think BEFORE you do it.

    Now I understand why some drivers have problems with it.

    Drag racing, it's all or nothing. No laying back, waiting for your move. It's hammer down and the tiniest mistake will eat you alive. If you aren't perfect, chances are you probably lost (or had a slow time if your not "racing" anyone else).

    I miss-shifted a few times. It really pissed me off too because it showed it on the timeslip. It drives you to improve every pass with no mistakes.
