Re: Well I will never know

Wade, not sure you can do what you're looking to do because there's no constant in the equation so to speak. Both vehicles travel the same distance but at different (trap) speeds and different ETs. I bet they're not even equally powered (HP/TRQ). So to calculate your ET based on where you finished in relation to the other Jeep would be hard/impossible without some complex math equation (get the guy from Numb3ers!!) that I'm not capable of imagining.

If there's a video, it may be possible to do the math from the start of your run to the posting of your time on their 'scoreboard' (if we knew the exact delay between that time flashing up there and the time you cross the beams at the end of the run and that it was consistent). Yes?
