How do you figure out what the trap speed is?

trap speed is the mph while crossing the finish line.

I'm in agreement that it is too low. He must be set up for 1/8 mile runs and this was a 1/4 mile track. He let up.

I think the first post in this thread says something like 'if he didn't get out of it'....





i'm thinking he's either set up for 1/8 mile..meaning like 5.13 or 4.88 gears or something.

OR...

he's testing the car since this appears to be a test & tune day.

Yeah I think when it was in Orlando (different track) he didn't let out and ran a 10.xxx

He might be going into competition and not want people to know his time, a lot of the drag cars do that.
