yeah, you're right.

if your car gets to 60 mph 1 second quicker and gets to the 1/4 mile .52 sec quicker than the other car, you will lose.

no doubt about it.

Put it this way I know first hand how fast these cars launch. The ONLY thing that would save you is a quicker reaction time....................Maybe.

^ like i said, you are right. take the subaru 2.56 RS for example.

its got AWD bite, like an audi quattro system and it goes 0-60 in 8.3 secs and 1/4 mile in 15.97 secs.

my eclipse gst has FWD and goes 0-60 in 6.5 secs and the 1/4 goes by in 15.3 secs.

but because the subaru has AWD and i know first hand how fast those cars launch, my eclipse will always lose to it. the ONLY thing that would save me is a quicker reaction time............Maybe.

see, im learning. now im going to go outside and pick on a twin turbo supra because we know how hard it is to get those cars to hook up. easy kill for my focus! oh yeah!

Just to let u kno, i raced the v6 5speed cougara short distance, just on a side block and we got up to about 65mph, i beat him off the line but he caught up going into second and we finished about even, he might have had me by a foot or so but i think its b/c i slowed up earlier. next time we race it will be a longer distance. also my gauges arent working so i couldnt see the tachometer but i think i shifted around 5k rpm. im having them fixed today and a shift light installed, maybe that will help me.
What do u guys think about this race? did u think i would be even with him, or am i just a bad driver?
