Let's see if my dumb brain did this correctly. 100mph = 146.67 feet per second. So if two cars are traveling at 100 MPH and are 1 second apart, thats 146.67 feet between them. Cut in half that's 73.335 feet. The average car length is 13.5 feet long. so that's 5.4 car lengths behind if the 2nd car finished 1/2 second behind the leader when both are traveling 100mph. I do that right?

Sounds good to me, all though if you were to go to the moon on a shuttle, you would not want me to figure out the parameters to get you there. Thanks

If you have traction and stability off you will bounce off the limiter and it won't shift for you

OK so I went to Cayua today during their test & tune session. The car is a '14 IS350 F-sport AWD mostly stock.

This was the best run I had @14.047 sec,


Also, I was able to outrun some pretty quick cars too. #2927 was mine.

2012 Infiniti G37


2016 Golf R


2013 Dodge Challenger R/T
