Has anyone here ever run an 1/8th mile before??

I am going to the drags on sat, and I was wondering if there are any major differences in an 1/8th mile to a 1/4 mile besides the distance.

on a 1/4 I normally cross the line redlining in 4th. So... am I likely to be redlining in 3rd on the 1/8?? or still in 2nd??

I have never done any dial in events before (I have only done the off streets at the creek and wsid).. any tips on that?



1993 ED XR8 - Poly Green, AFR 185 Alloy heads, Edlebrock Performer RPM Manifold, Crane 2031, T56 6 Speed, 3.9 diff, = 205.7 rwkw.
1993 ED Fairmont - Cobalt Blue, 5L, 17" CSA's and not much else.
1969 Mustang Fastback - Gunmetal Grey, 302, Auto, LHD. Doesn't go very hard, but looks sexy as !
