You are correct. Your reaction time only matters when you are actually racing someone.

MPH is nice to brag about and show off all your uber horsepower, but 1/4 mile times and winning races are what matters. They show that your whole car is working including your suspension/tires to maximize all that power off the line. Get back out there and set some good 60 foot times and get in the 10s. Also your reaction time is never factored into your elapsed time at the drag strip. It only matters when doing bracket or heads up racing.
You make some good points, IMHO the 1/8th and 1/4 traps are more impressive, currently I believe 11.45 is the fastest documented 1/4 mile ET for the E9X M3, and I don't think it's half bad, lol. I'll get back out there ASAP!

But now I'm curious because somebody else brought it up...was my (and your) times measured from the time I broke the beam? Meaning was my reaction time irrelevant to the results?
It's irrelevant, it only matters when you are bracket racing. Thanks for the props Robert, I thought you did great on the Forum Wars event.

Reaction time is only irrelevant when your doing test and tune. When you race heads-up (meaning both cars leave the line at the same time) the reaction time is very important if both cars run about the same ET. You can have a slower ET and still win if you had a much quicker reaction time.

Never have RT's applied to these type of events, test n' tune, street legal nights, etc. Unless you are bracket racing or at a actual REAL competition, at least in my case, you could leave the line 15 seconds later than the other car and still run an better ET.

I'm talking about a real heads-up racing competition. A persons reaction time never has anything to do with the ET.

I was lucky enough to have someone film a run, not the best pass of the day, but still decent.

Thanks for the vid!

Sounds like those drag radials were screaming for help in first and second.

That was fun to watch! Hope it does not get removed. I didn't see any other cars, so it must of been a closed road!
