    Hi Guys... thanks for the show of support. Im Tony, let me know if I can help any. Im in the process of replying to all the emails i have received from you guys so far, so please be patient. Or just keep bugging me!!! haha

    I'll see if I can help. I've gone over the numbers and measurements a time or two.

    Total runway length is billed at 4501. However the same pavement continues "outside the numbers" on either end of the runway. Exactly 200 feet on either side. So that's an extra 400ft. 4901 feet of total running room. We will utilise right about 400 ft for accel and pacing. From one edge of the runway, out to the start marker about 400 FT out. (For this facility, this starting technique will provide us more total usable room then trying to pace together from the taxiway, onto the runway, match speed etc...)
    We will then run 2640 feet. One-half mile. Our total distance remaining after the finish marker will be 1861 feet.
    If you run past that 1861 feet, you are in for trouble. That is the point in which the Earth (being flat) falls off to an edge. No New World. No undiscovered country. Just the edge of the Earth. (Not really. You will have several hundred feet of old tarmac)

    In all seriousness, use this guide for stopping distance: SPEED^2 /20 + SPEED. That's a basic calculation used by some motoring companies to ballpark stopping distance under normal conditions and moderate/aggressive braking. So not kid-ran-out-in-the-street braking. But that-light-just-went-from-green-to-red braking. Again, use as a ballpark figure. Performance brakes and tires, along with amazing surface will only help in that endeavor.
    not sure how events like this go, but a basic state reg on racing is that braking distance needs to equal acceleration distance

    to combat dust, i was going to say get the runway sweepers out there, but you could also see if the the local Fire Dep wants to get some testing doen (they usually have to do rotational testing) and spray down whatever side winds is coming from. could also see about lining that side with sandbags.. yes a lot of work with marginal return, but its something to consider if the dust is really a concern.

    yes,NJ law, but its also for different types of racing. the rules are very unclear and open to interpretation, this is NJ.. but its also easy to request an exemption..

    yea, watering it down is decent idea. I spent time cleaning runways for harriers and helo's, in a desert, and thats one method that worked, for a short period of time..

    Just remember I currently hold the record for fastest merc. I might have to keep my car out here for a couple more weeks and have a shoe drive it to keep things in order.

    Im talking about the 1/2 mile event not 1/4 mile...I can talk , I am registered. I think Earl should register and get someone to drive it if he is out of the country.

    If he is out of the country it's understandable. Maybe he trusts the Weistec guys to run his car?

    JRCart - JIM can talk, others can not.

    Then I'm not sure who you would be comfortable with.

    I figured most people were going to be running a higher octane fuel one way or the other. Hopefully we can make some arrangements so that not everyone has to haul fuel, but there has to be a demand sufficient enough for the supplier to come out. So hopefully we get enough feedback
