I attended a drag racing school on 11/29 and 11/30. The purpose of the class was to allow me to qualify for an NHRA license allowing an E.T as low as 7.5 seconds. I had never previously driven on a drag strip. ( But of course, I have indulged in "spirited driving episodes" for decades.) I have also never driven a vehicle faster than my Viper. I ( no one else was in the car) did each pass in a Supergas door car weighing 2300 pounds with 770 NA HP. The car had a line lock and a transbrake - both of which I had to learn how to use. It also had difficult visisbility because of the huge center hoodscoop. I did two 200 foot runs. One 600 foot run. One 1000 foot run and three quarter mile runs. The first run was a bit overwhelming and very intimidating. But I figured that with proper class room lectures and more time in the seat, my learning curve would do its job. Each run was digitally filmed; played back; and critiqued in a detailed and very helpful manner by the instructor. He also lectured extensively on how to clear one's thoughts; recognize and neutralize negative emotions so that a state of calm could be induced to maximize your driving; and certain physiological and neurological issues that are important to maximizing your drag racing skills and their use. It was an exceptional two days of learning. So by now you may be asking yourself: "So how did you do already?" Here are the stats for the three quarter mile runs: 1. 9.244 at 146.81 MPH. 2. 9.283 at 147.02 MPH. 3. 9.225 at 147.05 MPH. By the last run I was feeling very comfortable with the car. I think that I can still do better with more practice. I qualified for the license. I had no idea how big a difference in feel there was between say a 10.8 second vehicle and a 9.2 second vehicle. It's BIG!!
