Meh, times are cool, but trap speeds are pretty sick to me as well. A Honda that runs 10.0 @ 150 and gets beaten by a Fox that runs 9.5 @ 140 isn't "crappy"

The easy button will still get tire spin lol. It will be neat to see what times you put down.

As for trap speeds, who cares what it traps. All that matters is ET. A fox runing 9.5 is still faster than a honda running 10s regardless of which traps faster lol. That, and trap times decrease with lower 60' times.

Quicker and faster are drag racing terms. Fast means trap speed, quick means ET.

to most faster means who got there first. Someone who only cares about 1/4 times could careless what the car traps. Actually I know guys who say they trap to high, meaning there ET could be better if the first 60' was optimal.
