:) - Chris, well done mate.  If you do something in PHP or similar, please keep in mind the main table - as your table here gets bigger it is just more and more of a pain to work with.

I actually had the large table in Excel, but it won\'t convert properly to HTML when put into the Forum.

Therefore I stuck with doing it in dreamweaver and copying the HTML in (has to be done in a certain way) - real pain!


I put something similar on another thread.

Would a simple alternative be to compile all the data in Excel, then screen capture the table, save it as a jpeg and upload the picture? I\'ve done it this way on another forum, with a table, and it is simple, but effective. No HTML etc to worry about.

but look at your terminal Andy, with practice your stock car could be up near the top.

This is why I think its interesting to have bhp, as well, it shows that its not just grunt that makes you quick.

I didn\'t think 13.8 was particularly good. Maybe too much reading on the US forums !  :rollin  They seem to claim all sorts of 13s runs on standard 260(?)hp spec FDs. Am I being a touch on the gullible side then, in assuming that standard FDs should be in the mid-low 13s?  :confused:

Quote from a site I was reading last night:

"Just for the record my bone stock FD ran 3 consecutive 13.5@105mph passes at Lebanon Valley Speedway in Lebanon, NY, right on the border of upstate NY and Mass. This was on stock rubber, no funny gas and about 3/8\\\'s tank of fuel. The best ET of the day was a 13.51@105.4mph. This was achieved by going around the burnout box, dry scrubbing the tires, taching 4500-4700 and slipping the clutch for approx the first 50 feet or so and then releasing the clutch all the way. This resulted in 1.88 60\\\' times (yes it is possible), which was the key to the low ET. The 1-2 shift was done with a psuedo-powershift and the rest of the gear changes were done by lifting the throttle 75% between shifts. That was the key to the trap speed "

Are the yanks just more brutal on their cars, or just better at drag stripping them??

I hope to have a go at Santa Pod, esp as I just live down the road, its not exactly a long journey! It would be nice to see if I can indeed improve!

Exactly. As we said above, it puts results a bit more into perspective.

Ive "heard" dont quote me on it, but from numerous threads from the quarter mile kings (reno 5 owners boards ;) ) that the US quarter mile is shorter than that of the UK... dunno how you work that out but its definately been brought up numerous times!!!!

Chris, I\'m loving the table! Hyperlinks to the venues and to the owners cars, in the "members section". Top quality!
