Depends on what you like I guess, personnaly when I go to 1/4 mile, I don't care about the car beside me, neither my reaction time, all I care is my RPM and my shifts to try to make the best time as possible!
I don't race people to beat them but to have fun and looking how my car is holdin up against other cars, that's why I always try to make a race as fair as possible. Yes I'm happy when I win but that's just because it means that my car is faster and it's working well! Even when I had AWD I never wanted to race people from a dig(was doing easy 1.6-1.7 60ft with my STI) because I wanted to compare straight line performance, not off the line performance!
This reminds me of my friend with its stock 09 GT-R who wanted to race from a dig after he saw that it was a close race on the higway, I think it hearted his ego.
Who cares if he would've raped my ass from a dig, that's only about 0.017% of the fun I have with my cars, at least I can drift!
