    does anyone run on the 1/8 mile drag strips

    all i see is things about 1/4 mile drag strips. So if you have ran the 1/8 what did you run and what do you have under tha hood

    the 1/8 mile is garbage, its too short especially if you have a motor built for top-end. anyway run the quarter and then subtract 4-5 sec.s and your close to your 1/8 mile time

    A decent conversion to go from 1/8 mile to 1/4 mile is 1/8 mile ET * 1.56. That would make your 10.17 around a 15.8-15.9. It's not exact but it's usually pretty close.

    Cool 1/8 mile...

    is all that is around here. You have to go either an hour North to Savannah or an hour South to Jacksonville.

    we have a good 1/8 mile track here,in Kennedale, then again ennis is only 45 min. away. That's where the big boys run (top fuel). The imports seem to be taking over though, man I hate those tacky ass things. 10.17 is better than most of those things run though. I'm shooting for around 9.4 on the motor,mid 8's on the bottle

    you should go on street night, if nothing else it's funnier than any Austin Power's movie. Th stuff they do is just flat out hilarious. Like taking their hoods off to show colored wire loom, putting bags of ice on thier air intake then sitting in the staging lanes with their car ideling for 15 min., fart pipes blaring. Just for them to pull up next to an stock chevy and getting thir doors blown off. But none of that matters, the only thing that count's is how big your wing is and how many stickers you have on the fenders

    lol i agree, it was just last night that i messed around with one in town. I got him a little peed so i follow him back out of city limits to a strate road. This car look as if it came out of that dang movie f&f it had it all pretty much, anyway he sad go when im ready soo i sad go and hit it, threw 1st and 2nd i was pulling away from him but i started to here his fart pipe come up on me so i knew that he was prob gonna come around sice we were about 50-60 and thats were there only good at (top-end) so since that and that i had no idea about the road (some road out in the county at night) so i just hit the brakes not knowing that the road was a long as straight as it was, but im not goona lie he would have got me any way as soon as we hit about 80or90 from what i hear he has some kind of turbo thing. but ill love to line up along him on the 1/8
