    I have a couple V Boxes, but thanks for the offer. I just thought it was an all out top speed event. Honestly do not think I will be running the CLK now.

    I don't really see why not. But your car whatever you want to do.

    No, I just see absolutely no point in running the car in a race that there is no guarantee that the guy next to you leaves at the right time or the correct speed. Furthermore the car is in1/4 mile trim, for this event I was going to have to switch out all my suspension, reconnect sway bars and install my aero gear and considering I have a 1/4 mile event scheduled a couple days later I might as well just leave it in 1/4 trim and not mess with it now considering event is not timed. I will have fun with the 800hp car and in fact it appears there is a lot of competition in the 650-800 hp range.

    how many roll ons have you attended? i dont misunderstand your intent for a time, but a roll on head-head race is just that. your competing against the other guy. a time is just a time and purely about the car. its more wimpy than a drag race in that regard. I dont see how a 1/2 mile mph is relevant to anything anyway. its not the 1/4, and its not the mile. I kinda understand if you wanted it for a marketing perspective, but as an enthusiast to see what cars you stack up against, the head-head way more fun

    I guess we enjoy different things. I like black and white, no grey area, this type of racing is nothing but grey area IMO. I either want to leave on the same light as the guy in the lane next to me or have our trap speeds timed at the back end. Those two scenerios are the only way to call out a clear winner PERIOD! Sorry guys, this just does not float my boat. Differnt strokes for different folks I guess. I will run the C but not risking running the CLK for the same type of race I could have running down the expressway.

    Same here... To me most the guys with high power cars don't like drag racing. Roll racing and mile runs are what most people do now. 1/4 is blah to me.

    How does this type of run prove anything? No way to determine if someone left early, no way to determine trap speed thus no way to call out a clear victor. Not going to risk popping a motor or getting taken out on what is essentially a glorified Mexico run that I could do down any expressway with a speedometer app or a v box.

    You run. You put car lengths on someone. You win.

    have you watched any of the gtboard videos? or shift3factor vids? most the time everyone leaves at the same time once they pass the cones. I have yet to see anyone have a problem yet.

    CLK is registered, might even throw it in the trailer with the C and haul it out to the event but highly unlikely I will be running it now and if do it will only be against my C or Steves E63.

    No worries, you'll have fun at this event regardless.

    It's better than you think, it comes down to driving too besides leaving the cones on time. It's pretty fun I would really enjoy seeing your CLK run at the event.

    i guess you never just wanted to compare what you have to others..? er, cars i mean... because the stronger car will pull, it takes traction out of it, for the most part. a cheater is a cheater either way, but again, the hp wins so either your going to lose, or your going to win regardless of the start, and if you beat the cheater, its just that much more fun anyway.

    for instance, you can watch this whole thing, or skip to 3:45 for cheaters

    Cool vid.....cheaters suck! Pretty sweet that that event was at a drag strip, probably hooked much better than this airstrip is going to hook up.

    I just assumed this was going to be structured more like the Texas Mile or the Wanna Go Fast 1/2 mile event I registered for in Chicago where MPH is king and the only thing that matters.

    actually not, if you were to watch the whole video, im sliding everywhere and every car there had issues, it was a 30* day. great air, horrible traction. i dont think they even prepped the track at all.

    an airfiled will be 10x better than this. this was in fact a bad day. no track prep, very very short roll distance, no burnouts allowed, and the run was only a 1320, o the same 1/4 mile, but from about 40mph start. Thats not a real roll on from previous experience, your gonna want 1500-2k feet. a start at 40-50 and 1500ft is about the shortest i would go, conversely, longer than 2k feet and your $#@!in flyin and better have at least 2x runoff distance

    I think your gonna have more fun than you think if you have a competitive nature.

    i am very competetive, that's why I do not like this format. Like I said earlier I like black and white, I want a way to be able to measure a clear and decisive victory/loss. Just watching your vid proves my point.
