That been said, I love going to the 1/4 mile to try to beat my own time and see what my car can do, but when I want to compare against an other car, I look at the trap speed or I go race him from a roll on a closed highway!

to OP:
; I been drag racing a long time, RWD cars as well and that's the point I guess?? regardless of start, 1/4 mile is about reaction time and 60ft time. All these numbers can be broken down and measured to see what a "good start" is. I don't really get what you're saying other than one car can get the jump out of the hole and that's the point of racing in general
