He purposely delayed his start. Reaction time doesn't matter when making a single only pass. Reaction also does not affect elapsed time.

This might be better posted in the Racing forum shouldn't it?
Bob, yes probably so. Would make for some interesting discussion over there. Car is blistering fast and the launch control is spectacular.

That being said, the ZR1 with DR's is running 10.6's and lower... Admittedly they have had years to perfect their shifting and launches with the ZR1 so I expect to see the Viper's times drop a little, but 10.6 will be hard to achieve.

"I think there is a lot left in that pass. Major bog when the clutch was dropped"


That was the Launch Control, functioning as designed.

Really, still seemed to be pulled down, like to see with it off as well.
I agree, the Viper launch control doesn't seem very sophisticated. Most other launch control systems manage wheel spin during a launch to keep the tires just on the verge of slipping. The Viper just seems to let the clutch dump, wait for the tires to stop spinning then apply power.

Wow stuff today has really gotten fast. I built an old skool pump gas driver that could run 11.80s at 115 and thought I did something lol. Well then again i did that on 1/10th of the budget.

I think that's a pretty big assumption to make.
