Exclamation If you've gone drag racing before get in here! TOP 50 LIST

I'd like to get a TOP 50/100 MW's Fastest Cars "STICKY" thread that lists the who's who on this site as far as best ET goes.

Of course, there will be some strict guidelines to follow to make the list legitimate... I can take care of keeping the list updated and keeping track of everyone's personal best ET in a Ford powered vehicle (not sure if it should just be mustangs, but this is a mustang site afterall, I'm open to suggestions)

I, or Dan McClain, can start the new thread and figure out a nice title for it....

To get on the list, you will have to send me a timeslip and picture of the car with the numbers that match the timeslip, I'd like to get some feedback from everyone on how to do this, that is why I've started this particular thread so we can possibly sort out the details and see if this idea will fly. Maybe set the thread up in the Racer's Clubhouse, that section doesn't see much traffic and I think a thread like I've mentioned would liven it up a bit there.

Let me know... I think it would be kind of neat, especially for this summer when we all start hitting the strip again. Now would be a good time to get the ball rolling and get the details sorted.... just a wild idea that came to me while working in the garage all night, lol.

In a Ford, huh? I suppose it has to be in a straight line, too?

Leaves me out.



Take care,

Thumbs up

that is an excellent idea
I thought I heard some talk of that before from Dan but nothing ever came of it.

I don't have any slips to submit but I would like to see where everyone else sits.

Please send applications to: rls302cid@hotmail.com

Also, please title the e-mail message "TOP 50 LIST" ...I'd like to make it a top 100 list, but it doesn't appear we're anywhere close to that at this point.

I'd like to format the list like this:

1/4 ET @ MPH.....1/8 ET @ MPH.....60ft......username.....aspiration/CID/weight/stick or auto (what kind)

Start submitting applications whenever you get a chance...

Thank you,
-Ryan

Thumbs up Great idea

Great idea.

Although, should we make categories such as...

Street tires
1) N/A
2) One power adder
3) Two power adders (ok, anyone on street tires w/2 adders is CRAZY!)

Drag Radial
1) N/A
2) One power adder
3) Two power adders

Slicks
1) N/A
2) One power adder
3) Two power adders


Or something like that? That was just off the top of my head as I'm sitting here in my office. That way you can see how you stack up against folks in your 'class', if you will. I like the info your asking for too.

The other issue is that for me (not that it really matters as I'm a mid-12 sec drag radial car N/A), is that I have all my timeslips, but no pics of the car at the track with the numbers painted on it that would allow you to match it up to the slip. I guess I'll have to wait until next spring to get you a pic & slip.

Just my random thoughts.

Thanks for the contribution and your thoughts Eric...

for the time being, we could simply add the category "tires" to the end of the list:

1/4 ET @ MPH.....1/8 ET @ MPH.....60ft......username.....aspiration/CID/weight/stick or auto (what kind)/tires (what size/type)

...that is, until I've recieved enough entries to make dedicated 'classes' as you've mentioned.

As for the picture, yes, you're going to have to wait until spring... we'll see how things go. I'd like to keep the list as legit as possible. I may use a * to classify the entry as "not validated at this time" or something along those lines, cool?

Again, thanks for the contribution and I appreciate your feedback.

-Ryan

this is just another idea

either break it up into categories or put a note on the end of each entry, stating whether or not it is a dedicated track car.

Yeah, I know... I want to put our own twist on this particular list and include everyone, not just the N/A street car guys. It's a damn good idea, not an "ultraflo original" however. There's a similar list at the Corral for those who are unaware.

Anyone who has a picture of their car with numbers to match the timeslip is eligible, btw. ...if you don't have a digital cam or scanner to send the info electronically, contact me via PM and I'll give you an address to send the info in the snail mail.

Good call Conman, about the street/strip, drag only label... I could add that to the list, but I would think it might be obvious with the type of tire being used... what the hell, I can add that if you like. ...I'm just trying to keep things simple.

1/4 ET @ MPH.....1/8 ET @ MPH.....60ft......username.....aspiration/CID/weight/stick or auto (what kind)/tires (what size/type)/duty (street/strip or drag)

The more I think about it, the more I'd like to keep everyone on a single list... that's why I stated we could do a TOP 100 list if I receive enough entries.

I might drop the 1/8mi. ET @ MPH category to keep the entries to one line of info... cross that bridge when we come to it, it's early yet. I have yet to hear from Jeff Chambers or Dan McClain... I sent Jeff a PM, but not Dan yet.

Later...
