    What? should be close? I assumed it was at least a 1/2 mile or longer. I hope its at least 2500 ft, anything less will be a waste of time.

    Rolling start?

    Yes, rolling start. I'm not sure on the exact distance I am finding out. It will be plenty to stretch the cars legs Jim.

    Glad to hear it. We'll get there, just a matter of finding the right venue.

    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.

    I'd like to keep this a private group. Also let's take it out of this thread. Please PM me.

    Right now the CLK, once I get dyno figures off the C I will most likely expand the wager to both cars. The C has not even been delivered to Weistec yet so I am not going to make a wager with a car thats not modded yet.

    Ok so this is obviously going to be reserved for the CLK but that's fine. And it currently matches Earl's?

    Yes, with the exception of my ram air hood and slightly different intakes.
