wtf at an 1/8th mile, is that just a quarter mile for lpg cars that will probably backfire before they get to the 1/4 mile? :p.
My soarer would murder it on the 1/8th mile! I have 12psi of boost at 2700rpm :p.

1/8th = 1/2 a 1/4 numnuts!
ie 200mtr drags

i bet you a na car would nail your car over 200mtrs as it would take that long to boostr!

hahaha, no chance mate.
twin ceramic turbos = next to no lag.
I can launch at 80% boost with stock stall. plus i have 10 inch tyres.

I know how many meters 1/8th mile is, but what's the point of it, it's like yeah i ran a 9 at the strip, on an 1/8th mile, counts for nothing man, the 1/4 is the judge of speed.

1/8th miles are there for ppl who dont have access to a full 1/4.
IN wa the WA police run the blue light drags at wanneroo with a 1/8th mile on the back straight
very popular and cheap

Idiot? I said wtf AT an 1/8th mile, not wtf IS an 1/8th mile. meaning why bother. And the lpg comment was merely a tongue in cheek comment, given the problems i had with lpg :p.
