Just curious as to what you all think. Really interested in those with time slips that show both the 1/8th mile time and speed as well as 1/4th time and speed. That 1/8th mile time is from a track a few weeks ago and just yesterday I finally got to use my g-tech and did a 1/4th mile run. It came up as 15.49 @ 93.8mph. I was thinking mid 15's but the mph seems awful high. I know the g-tech mph is always a little high (1-2mph) but it still seems high to me. Next time I'll ditch my stereo and not have a full tank of gas and see what happens.

Thanks a lot,

Jason

If I remember right, someone in a thread before said you multiply the 1/8 by 1.5 to get your quarter time...

Well that would be 15.13, which as much as I would like to believe it, I know it ain't that fast. Close though, but not quite.

close, it's 1.55
so 10.09 * 1.55 = 15.64 approx.
I'm not for sure about the mph conversion, I always forget it.

Here is my last run of the season time slip. You might want to compare your R/T & 60' times. You may be loosing some time in that area. Hope this helps :) Oh, here in TN we only have 1/8th tracks, wish this 8.4 was a 1/4 time LOL!

It's a mid 15. The G-tech mph is a little high, so expect about a 15.6 @ 90 when you go to the 1/4 mie track.

I run a 9.3 @ 77mph, and a 14.4 @ 95mph, so the "multply by 1.55" rule works for me.

Is that really true, Mult. by 1.55? This is the 1st I've heard of this. I had post a few weeks ago on guesstimating what my 1/4 time would be. We don't have 1/4 tracks in TN :( Just 1/8ths. So I should run: 13.114 :) I'll take that!
