Reaction time has nothing to do with ET.
:eek: Shows how much I know about the strip lol

How come his time is so quick compared to some of the cars with over 50hp more, I know its a light car but it can't be that light?

Maybe the driver isn't 6 foot 2 and 14 stone? :D

However I doubt 25kg's difference is gunna make that much difference.. If you want me to run your car let me know :cool:

As in some high powered motors running slower times mate? With pretty low terminals too? Your time is impressive for the power. I ran a 14.73 @ Santa Pod raceway with 165hp hitting 93mph years back in my Ibiza, I like your time with a few more hp!

1/4 mile runs in '09

My Golf did 15.0-15.1 at 94 MPH with 2.5 60'. This is an average of 3 runs at 70* temp. Mods are in the sig. I quit because of wheel hop, as damage may have resulted from more runs.

Better traction, lower 60' time? The trap speed is very indicative of HP, and it is lower than some of the slower ones with more power.

Also point out, it does have a A.T.B. Diff, and my PB 0-60ft time is 2.0secs dead. 330ft times are usual done in just a little over 5 and a half @ 5.7 seconds, all on street legal tyres.

Really good 60ft time for a fwd!
I have 2.5 sec, (w/o LSD) when i can get my 60ft to 2.0 sec i would do about 12.8 ET or lower i guess :D

A 0,1s out of 60' means 0,2s out of ET. At least this is what big boys have told me.:)

My 2,4s with drag tires (no LSD) really sucks too.:mad:

Thanks, this is why I know my times cant be any better. My 60ft and 330ft times are so low, I cant better them without more power IMHO. Even then, I doubt my 60ft time will ever be lower.

9 out of 10 runs will be sub 2.3 60ft times for me.

Interesting enough my PB was with a 1st gear launch back in 2008. Never done it again, but normally hit 2.1's now with 2nd gear launches.

Nice. I never went to the strip with my '78 300D, but a Gtech told me I ran 0-60 in 20 seconds. I think I might have hit the 1/4 about 5 seconds later. :D And that's in Colorado too, 5280 elevation, probably 40 or 50 RWHP.....

That's what the big boys told me to, but i said 12.8 to not get to optimistic :rolleyes:

2.4s isn't bad with a van of that weight :D

Interestingly there is a large gap in times between mid 14s and mid 15s. I hope to fix that next time at the track...this March...hehehe

You should be in mid 14s at the very least with the spec I see there. :)
Im not so sure, the 60ft time is good for FWD, and his terminal is low. Id say the car is pretty heavy so all the power is being used pushing the weight. I hit 93mph with a 14.7. Id say to hit REAL mid 14's terminals of 95mph would be needed.

That 1/4 mile time in the sig is for the old spec. I think on the new spec it will do much better. :)

Yeah since then, I have added a FMIC, 3-bar MAP sensor, re-tune and suspension. It goes way better now! I would love to be able to run 14s on stock BEW injectors :cool:

Seems like all the upgrades should help then indeed! No doubt the suspension will too! When do you plan to run again?
