    The car ran mid 10.30s all day. The race I lost, I dialed in a 10.33 and ran a 10.37. I ran closer to my dial than the other guy, but he spanked me at the light.

    He was in a 12.50ish car . . . so I had to wait for over two seconds before trying to run him down at the big end.

    missed it by a HUNDREDTH!!!! :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant:

    That bites, sounds like the track needed to be 10 feet longer. Sucks.

    The track needed to be TWO feet longer . . lol

    132 mph = 193.64 feet per second

    So a foot is, roughly, 1/200 of a second at 132 mph . . . 2 damned feet
