Re: (kmagnuss)

I'll be getting up to Carson on July 9th or 10th. I'm looking forward to meeting up with some of you CO R owners. Definitely looking forward to running on a 1/4 mile as well. 8.70's on the 1/8 mile should net a pretty decent time in the 1/4, albeit with a HUGE altitude change.

The BMW has treated me well, but I still don't like the 'image' that it projects - I much prefer the understated nature of the R.

How much does the altitude effect our cars in 1/4 mile? What would a 14.0 car in CO run in FL at 20' above sea level, all other things the same?

I just found a density altitude calculator...and found that taking the weather conditions there @ 2:00, if you ran a 14.5 @ 101, you would have run 13.959 @ 104.781 MPH at sea level.<p>PS...my GT ran a 13.91 @102 bone stock. I think you could do MUCH better than that. 13.2's or so with a good launch.

Re: (GiRaff3)

Launching this car is a PITA. Managed to swing consistent 2.0 60' times.<p>Ever take a look at 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile time calculators? Fill in one, and it figures out the rest? I put in my times, and it never equals out to what I'm doing lol <p>Too bad we can just clutch drop like the Subies do. That would be one mean looking Volvo with a 4 wheel spin off the line!<p>

There's hardly any imports at the track near me. It's all old muscle cars. I'm cool with that...but I really don't like getting my ass handed to me by tubbed out roll cage 200 shot nos sprayin 11 second monsters all day.
