That could be a possibility, Although i'm not sure how many people have dragged there car down the track. I think it would be

600SX 12.2?
Nismodave 12.5?
????

Posted Forum 1/4 mile times are useless and nothing but a penis contest.

Its dumb and somthing that people from IL (chitownracing crowd) are concerned about.

For many of that crowd its a justification of the $$$$$$$$ they spent, and an ego thing so they can say thier cars are faster than X persons car.

Alas, I was one of this type for a number of years. But after being exposed to many different types of racing and Beating "faster" car on the street.....And being beaten by "slower" cars....1/4 mile times are a rough guesstimate how fast a car is at a certian time.

The only thing a 1/4 represents is how fast some is from a stop going straight. The ability of the driver is not truely proven just that you have the ability to push on a gas pedal as fast as you can. Just like nascar is how good you can take a left turn. Now if we all had a day that we could go to the same road course and post our lap times from that. I think that would make it a little more interesting.

13.6X - Serious traction issues. 2.2ish 60'.

Stock Redtop, stock turbo, 17" street tires.

I was going to buy your slicks Evan, but I just don't care enough about 1/4 to warrant an extra set of rims/tires in my already cluttered garage.

240 is a terrible 1/4 mile car without serious devotion to the 1320 (read 4 link/tubbing).

If I were to do 1/4 seriously it would be 4th gen Fbody or Foxbody with an AOD/glide.

No problem. I am sure I can go out and cut good times on these but I want to run my nice wheels all summer.

Not that it matters, but my best time so far was a 12.21 with a 2500 rpm launch. The same trip I ran a 12.25 with a 3500 rpm launch, but missed 4th gear completely and rolled through the big end.

Here's my last time slips from Union Grove. Slicks were new, and I was still getting the feel for launching on them.

-Car has all suspension arms upgraded except lower control arms front and rear
-Adjustable KYB AGX struts (set fairly soft) with unknown lowering springs
-26x8.5-15 M/T ET Drag

I think a list of....

How many times us 240 owners get asked if we drift, or

How many times a STRANGER tells us what we SHOULD of done with our cars, or

How many times a 15 year old doucher askes us what it does in the 1/4...Would be much more entertaining.
