Took the BMW to the track
#1
It was a little disappointing to say the least. My best time was a 15.45 @ 90.3mph. I had the trap speed for a very high 14 but I couldn't get past the bog or spin problem. On a lighter note I did spank a Charger R/T. He ran a 15.3 to my 15.55 but I beat him down the track by 4/10

like a new charger R/T? aren't those supposed to run mid 14's......if they are running mid/low 15's i lost any respect for them that i didn't have Sad
I guess it probably coulda been pretty hot outside or something though, or maybe the driver just doesn't know what he's doing.

R/T has zero impact on ¼mile time.

Post up the time slips! Cool

I know reaction time has no impact on the total E.T. I was simply stating what his reaction time was to explain why I beat him down the track.
