my day at the drag strip 1/8th mile
well today was the last day at winterport dragstrip , so i figured ive never done it before so what the hell.
the first 5 runs were time trials and the last run was a elimination bracket race for money and i lost to a 67 chevelle running 7.5s , i had about a 3.5 second headstart and he only beat me by a hair. track was 1/8th mile.
6th run , bracket race elimination
reaction: 1.113 ( asleep at the wheel )
finish: 10.884 ( figure that )
not too bad for a 05 2.0 with exhaust and intake , 105k miles and bald front tires. my main problem was no traction in first gear , track was very cold and slick at the begining. and on my last run i hit the rev limiter shifting from 2nd to third , so i couldve done a split second better. but for my first time i think i did alright. it was really fun and very addictive and ill be doing it all the time next year.
