We may go to the track and do some drag racing on Sunday. Its going to be sunny and 71 degrees.

My motor loves cool air and the car "hooks up" good when we get some sunny weather to warm the track to about 90.

Sounds like fun! sunny

We ended up going to the track and had a blast!!! The car had fun too. Best pass was 13.295 sec at 102.79 MPH (1/4 mile).

Summer is coming tomorrow ... temps in the mid 80's. And after the rain tonight, sunny all weekend!!! cheers

Pretty cool. A normal "street" car would be able to cover that distance in about 18 seconds at about 75 mph. so its pretty fun. I have a friend that has a 70 Chevelle. His can do it in 10.62 sec. at 150 mph. Now that a RUSH!!! Before I get too old and have to quit, I'd like to get in the 150 mph club too!!! affraid bounce

Speed, like so many other things in life, is relative ... When done is a safe manor in a controled inviroment 100+ mph is no big deal.

At the track, your car is inspected to make sure it can safely do the speeds that you expect it to run. At the end of the 1320 ft strip you have a 1500 ft shutdown (braking) area. If thats not enough, there is a big sand trap with 1 foot of deep sand beyond that. Ive seen cars hit the sand at 150+ mph and it will stop them in 50 -100 feet. Its not a very plesent ride, but at least they get out and walk away. (Its the same concept as the runoff roads in the mountains. In fact the NTSB credits the NHRA for the idea) Wink
