I went to the drag strip last night.
 
Well, I took my stock 2000 Bonneville SSEi to the strip last night. Why? Two reasons: 1. I wanted to see how fast she would really go. 2. People were saying "Bonneville's aren't fast," etc. and I had enough of the trash talking. So, after every other Japanese and German car I went with came back disappointed, I was still smiling. Bonneville's rock!

My runs are as follows (at Luskville Dragway in Luskville, Quebec):

15.441 sec @ 71.925 mph (I had never been to a strip before so I started to braking before I crossed the quarter mile line. Grr. But, I still won.) Reaction Time: 0.963 sec

15.110 sec @ 92.224 mph
Reaction Time: 0.825 sec

15.069 sec @ 92.659 mph
Reaction Time: 1.456 sec

15.130 sec @ 92.178 mph
Reaction Time: 1.118 sec

Just thought I would share my excitement with all of you. :lol:

Edit: Name of Strip & Reaction Times Included (And, yes, my reaction times are terrible.)

BTW - I have timeslips to confirm that all of the information I have stated is authentic.

Great times! Congrats on your first dragstrip experience, I love taking the Chevelle out once and a while.
Now, if you get hooked, the car will start the mod process 8)

Very very nice! 8)

Me likey a lot. Hell my R/T's suck as well, so I know how annoying that can get. :wink:

zzzzzeke 09-27-2003 04:12 PM

wow if you clean up that reaction time you could maybe hit a really high 14 :lol:

Reaction times don't effect ET's. It's nice to have a low R/T, but they only matter if you are bracket racing where they do then count in the E/T.

This is true, thats why I hate my high R/T's because I'm addicted to bracket racing.
The one factor that will have the largest affect on 1/4 times are launches. Speaking of, Galaxy, how were your 60 foots?

Wish I knew.
 
You know man, I have no idea.

This is what the timeslip says:

Dial-in: .00

Reaction: 1.456

I1: 2.400
I2 : 6.692
MPH (I3) : 73.585
I4 : .000

E.T. : 15.069
MPH : 92.659

WIN

Maybe you can decipher this information better than I can?!?


All times are GMT -4. The time now is 10:20 PM.
