Though, even if they both got perfect starts I still think Revshot would've won.

Still a very good run by both participants. Especially doing the run for our viewing pleasure, since really, it was us who called them out to race.
This is why I spent mucho money on suspension/traction! You can have lots of power but if you can't get it to the ground, drag racing is not a good choice. I rip RevShot a new hole when we launch and I am on Radials! Either way, all had fun. I'll have to bring the Cobra out one day, its sleeping for the winter..ZZZZZZZ.

I was told that Bimmer runs 11's! If it did and he made an 11 second pass, you would have been toast. I guess with the spray you are mid-high 12's.

How much time did Tom lose spinning his wheels? At least 1 second. The outcome could have been quite different without that wheelspin.

But thanks to the Rev and Tom for putting on the show. I went upand said hi to RevShot and actually he seems like a nice guy.

It was 2 car lengths before RevShot hit the spray, no? I thought by the end of the race it was more like 4-5 car lengths? Gamite would know for sure, he was parked at the end of the 1/4 mile mark.

Even if it was 2 car lengths at the end, remember RevShot didn't hit spray until 4th gear either. I think both were great performing cars all around, and on an actual track JazzM would leave Revshot in the dust.. but, for the dragstrip, Revshot has a slight edge.
