2000SilverBullet is on a distinguished road
Default The Woodburn results.

Well, I was almost spot on with my prediction of 14.5 sec 1/4 mi time.

Summary of my results....verified by WillWren, PDaddy and DriverJohn.
Keeping in mind that the track temps were 90 degrees.

1st - Smoked a 3rd Gen Camaro.
14.57 @ 96.1 mph 2.275 60' 9.42 1/8

2nd - Smoked a Turbo T-Bird..A FORD..
14.70 @ 96.4 2.333 60' 9.53 1/8
My worst reaction time of .333 sec

So I picked 14.7 as my dial in time, just for the fun of it even though I had beat it on my first run.

3rd - SilverBullet vs BoneEvil
14.6 @ 95.7 2.277 60' 9.44 1/8
O'Neil posted a 14.94 @ 94.8

4th -SilverButtet vs a Chevy truck
14.53 @96.7 2.258 60' 9.39 1/8

5th - SilverBullet vs BoneEvil
14.47 @ 97.1 2.209 60' 9.34 1/8
My best reaction time of .157 sec
O'Neil posted a 14.83 @ 94.4

6th - SilverBullet with BuckWheat co-pilot vs GreenZilla
14.7 @ 94.95 2.285 60' 9.53 1/8
Will posted a 16.7 @ 83.7 .....he let me win.

Nice blow by blow. You got alot more runs in, but I was running too hot anyway.

BTW, the tower/stands temp was 90......I'm pretty sure the track temp at the lights was higher. I'd like to find out where their sensor is.

How quickly the DRIVER reacts to the lights. From the time the green light goes, to the time your car starts rolling.

Mine was the quickest of the West meet Even though I'm old. And the Bullet was the oldest, and came in a close second:

Well people, I just got a call from Bill he had an update from the track runs.... Wish I was there...

Et'* go as such...

2000 Silver Bullet 14.4 1/4 mile

Pdad 14.7

Willwren 15.5

Driverjohn 16.6



Reaction time off the top of his head( May have some small changes later )

Willwren .151

2000 silver bullet .175

Driverjohn .240

Pdad .360 (not sure on this one....I think it was lower)

Also they all ran in street trim, with all of the junk in the trunk, 2000 silver bullet was the only one with less than half a tank of gas... lol

I'm glad they are having a good time...

What'd you do for track prep to run that time? Full Street Trim? No Spare? Less tire pressure? It just seems like those times are what I would expect our SSEi to run now that it has a DHP, but yours *should* be faster I would think...although your SSEi and ours basically have the same stuff except yours has headers and ours has rockers.

gimme a bit of credit, im that much of n00b!!! i mean the .157 r/t... i was under the impression that a perfect light was .500. and a .157 would be a massive red light...
