And I remember you too had to deal with all these people accusing you of not disclosing hidden mods, etc. And as usual, it was the ones with the slower cars that did all the complaining, lol. Trap speeds, and 60-130s are a true measure of a cars power. So i'm sure if anyone runs record breaking numbers, there would be no reason for them not to post their results. Its pretty simple to do I would think. If you trap 130mph, you might run a 12 second qtr mile, or a 10.6 second qtr mile. Its just a matter of the launch, wheel spin, etc. But it doesn't matter, if you are trapping around 130mph your car is capable of easily running 10s with traction. And I would definitely rather have a 11.5 second 130mph trap car, than one the runs high 10s at 125mph traps.
Thanks man, and well said.
