5 Dragrace result calculator - dragrace.me

Cover for Dragrace result calculator - dragrace.me

Why burn expensive rubber at the dragstrip when you have online tool that reliably predicts dragrace outcome, based on real acceleration data?

DragRace.me is a tool I wrote 8 years ago and later replaced with different type of website for pre-calculated acceleration data.

Recently I decided to reanimate this old project and make it compatible with current FastestLaps data service.

Unlike 8 years ago, today there are much more vehicles in Fastestlaps.com database which are suitable for acceleration time calculations.

The tool allows to compare up to 8 vehicles in standing, rolling and distance acceleration (dragrace times), and allows to switch between metric and imperial (US) units of measurement.

Except people who go to the drag strip not only to experience and test the acceleration, but to test thing in between the steering wheel and chair.

dragrace.me is based on average acceleration times from fastestlaps.com, that also means average "thing in between the steering wheel and chair", at least for popular cars which have acceleration data from multiple sources.

Also - modern cars with DCT boxes and launch control also reduce the effect of driver skill to almost zero. The only real variance is grip level on road surface.

That last paragraph is so sad..

This is perfect for the uninformed younger audience of this generation.

But for more experienced people who now a little something, Its useless, Lets be real, we all prettey much know what a car will do knowing certain things.

What you should work on is a Bhp per ton/Torque per ton calculator, And Wbhp to Crank calculator, Thats something we could use on a daily base.

I just love to watch the gap develop and change as I increase the distance 25, 50, 100 meters etc. Some cars are fast off the line and fade later (light cars with smaller engines), some are slower at beginning and start to catch up as speeds go up (big heavy cars with big powerful engines).
