DJG Posted September 22, 2004 Report Share Posted September 22, 2004 A couple of weeks ago I was venting on this website how I could not find anyone to drag race against. So I decided to take matters into my own hands. Every Tuesday evening at Gateway International Raceway near St. Louis they have an open street legal drag race competition where you pay $15 and you can race as many times as you want from 5:30 - 10:30 p.m. I raced 4 times before it started to get too croweded. I have posted my results below. If any one has any suggestions on how to improve my times, please let me know. Also, if any one knows if these results are in line with what I should expect from the 97 STS I would appreciate that information also. I will say that the first part of the track was slippery so traction control came on initially which may have slowed me down somewhat. All 4 race results were almost identical. It should be noted that I did change to a Fram Air Hog on the last race which did not seem to make any difference. Here they are: Reaction Time: .760 seconds 60 Feet Time: 2.368 seconds 330 Feet Time: 6.651 seconds 1/8 Mile Time: 10.089 seconds 1/8 Mile Speed: 72.23 MPH 1000 Feet Time: 12.982 seconds 1/4 Mile Time: 15.468 seconds 1/4 Mile Speed: 91.91 MPH Yeah I know the reaction time needs work but considering it was my first time ever I was pretty pleased. Any suggestions on how to decrease these times? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
