ive done 7.42 secs @ 101 mph over an 1/8th of a mile....

....at the 06 IOM TT Ramsey Sprint on my Suzuki GSXR 600 K2 running only a K&N filter and a Scorpion end can


i cant understand this though, surely a big heavy volvo which has 3 times the power should be quicker than my small light bike??????????

It took me 15 minutes to do 1/4 of a mile this morning.

Flipping traffic in Bradford is awful.

My best 1/4 is rubbish compared to you low 13 second guys on here, but my car is an auto and has only mbc/ BSR optiflow mods...

14.84@92.25mph

Can anyone explain to me the relationship between et and terminal speed please?

I was expecting a better t/s on the 14.8sec run but it was lower than a 15.06 I did 2 weeks prior @ 95.86mph...

all depends on the start, if you sat still spinning your wheels for 10 seconds you could still get a good speed but yout time would be rubbish.

when i had a go on my bike, i got talking to a lad who had proper drag bike, his advice was all about the start, keep the front wheel down is quickest (only applies to bikes)

This is sound advice....The engine will create a decent lag if pointed in the wrong direction.....

Ok thats cool. My last 20 r/ts averaged out @ .210 (best 0.025, worst 0.410) best 60ft 2.176.
Fwd auto volvos aren't the best vehicle for the 1/4 but still lots of fun as they're pretty thin on the ground in France
