1St time at the drag strip info

I ran across this page while searching for other information today. I thought some of the people who would like to go to the strip for the first time might want to read it. http://www.musclecarclub.com/library...ing-tips.shtml

Nice post!

This may also help some people... using these methods my Fiancee on her 3rd pass ever at the track was able to rip off a 1.99 60ft and run 13.17 @ 105.88mph at the track. Knowing the tricks ahead of time can make a huge difference in your track experience!

The driver from the above website has personally piloted a 2002 Z06 to the 11s bone stock and ran 11.1 in a bone stock 2006 Z06.. so he definately knows what he is doing.

I read a 1/4 mile ET estimating formula somewhere years ago, that I still think is reasonably accurate. This formula assumes slicks and proper gearing.

((weight/HP)^(1/3))*5.8144

Text description:

Divide weight by horsepower
take the cube root of the answer
multiply the answer by 5.8144


Example (2010 Camaro SS LS3):

weight 3888
HP 426

3888/426 = 9.126

9.126^(1/3) = 2.089

2.089 * 5.8144 = 12.15 estimated ET
