You hit it right on the money.... This is very crucial when you are racing against turbo cars. You get the jump first, it takes a little for their turbos to spool up. By then, you already have a few car lengths ahead. Even if they have a stronger car, let them play catch up.J-Rod said:
The same is true on the street. If folks aren't willing to give up lengths, then go for the move. In other words, they leave when you decide to leave. This is often useful and can end up giving you 3 carlengths (.3 seconds) or more if you do it correctly.
At 60mph you're traveling 88'/sec.Lawboy said:from what i have read others post, it seems to be a consensus that .1 in the 1/4 equals approx 1 car length..... ????
im assuming everyone chimes in on 1/4 et because it is something that can be reliably measured....not sure how to measure 0 to 60 times....? i think one of the major car rags got an 02 to do 0 to 60 in 4.0 but im not sure.
