Very True!

My bud and I were running last Wednesday and some glitch in the system got him a high 9 second 1/4 mile slip with his tech# listed at the top.
it didn't print out the trap speed at the 1/4 though, just a 9.45 quarter mile ET.

...he was pretty happy until I pointed out that his 1/8th mile was listed at 10.32 on the same slip LOL!

The rest of his slips (about 6 of them) were all in the low 15's (4G Hemi QC 4x4)

Bingo!

even Bonneville land speed record attempts have to make a second pass within a certain time frame (20 minutes?) of the first run.
I believe they do it in the opposite direction to rule out wind speed/direction and the second run must be within 1 % of the first run (if it was faster) to be an official record.

Not that you could do that at a 1/4 mile track, but still some kind of back up run is usually a good idea when several say it sounds too good to be true
The night I got my best run (13.898) I had another 13.928 second slip, and one at 14.001.

1st run (right lane)


2nd and 3rd run
