redline track day

a friend of mine with a camaro and i went to redline drag strip, down in greenville texas... he has a 79 Berlinetta camaro, he has it set up for drag, and we decided to go just to mess around knowing he would win.....

we get up to the line, and when we pass the 1/4 mile, he won by .2 seconds
we run again, he wins by .4 seconds
third time, i won by .5 seconds
fourth just to see if we would tie or not, he won by 2.6 seconds

can a prelude beat muscle, it sure as hell can keep up with it =)

Re: redline track day

it don't matter if you win by an inch or a mile. winning is winning.


those numbers are completely irrelevant considering we don't know what time(s) you ran. if you ran a 25 second 1/4 mile, winning by 0.2 seconds is horrible.

not to mention the fact that its clearly obvious he was just getting the car dialed into the track and conditions, so his car was just gonna get faster and faster until he was consistently running his dial-in time.

Re: redline track day

there is no e in mustangs anywhere, and were you beating GTs or v6s if they were v6s then there's nothing to really be happy about, but a decent driver in a 5 speed GT mustang should be able to run upper 13s all night long without a problem
