I use to race 1/4 mile back in Michigan. Down here in North Carolina it's all 1/8 mile racing. On the 1/4 mile track my stocker does 12 seconds flat if I am doing my job. Anyone have any guesses what I might run in the 1/8 mile?
Are we factoring in the weight of shoes and wet clothes?
Before and after going to the toilet ?
I believe Matt was refering to Trout riding in a downpour last summer to attend my Zukey Lake KZR party. Soaked to the bone.. But I like the toilet line too

I did not think to try and google for a calculator for something like this. Thanks! I was really just looking for someone that had maybe done the same thing and had a guess. I will find out soon enough. I hope to hit Mooresville Dragway in the next couple of weeks for a test and tune.
I went to the track last night for test and tune. Out of 6 runs I made 3 of them were 7.7 seconds at 89 mph. The other 3 runs: I slept at the line on the first pass (first time on a pro tree for me) and the other 2 I dumped the clutch and smoked the tire off the line. I almost dropped my bike getting it off the trailer, luckily there was a guy nearby who came to my rescue! It was good to be back on the track and having some fun. It was a little rough on me too. I got kicked by one of our horses a few months ago and last night proved I probably need to go get a MRI on that knee. I don't know what I was doing to irritate it but by the end of the track I was sticking my leg out straight to relieve the pain (at 89 mph). Getting old sucks. I had 2 guys trying to buy my bike. One guy asked every time he walked by me. wrote: 7.7 seconds according to this table.
