If you got a good 60ft time (launch) then you almost always get a decent exit time.

Terminal / Trap speed is usually very similar no matter what the start was like off the line.

TErminal is a great indicator of how much power your car is running and whether its healthy or not. This is because it is dictated by your power to weight ratio.

I always aim for a decent terminal these days, then at least if your time is crap, you know your car is still capable on the open road!!! :) :D

Well I think I nearly toasted the clutch but came away with a 13.2289 1/4 at 104.88 and 60ft in 2.0868. Fairly standard car. I'm not sure how that fairs with others.

There where quite a few strugling with traction.

Aye, just put mine in and I'm happy to be on the 1st page..

It was easier with the 4WD.. I just need a stonger and more durable clutch.
