Yea, density altitude. I don't go around saying I ran 13.86 @103, but it's nice to know in better conditions my trap would've improved. I consider it an *asterisk* next to my time, nothing more.

The 740 was a quick car. He trapped 106 last weekend, but also trapped 101-102 on a couple runs where he spun a whole lot. Trap speed isn't everything, although I agree I should not have pulled at all. Even the 30 roll being out of my powerband I was on his rear QP. His car weighs 4200lbs and he's 6'7/210? I'm not arguing about it, just trying to show that trap speed isn't everything on the street.

Although, the OP basically claims to have hung with the new 5.0 lulz. The new 6.4L Challenger is on par with the 5.0.

I agree, trap speed isn't EVERYTHING, but is a large factor. I notice he trapped what you trapped for a bunch of runs, but did one trap at 106, did he beat you from a roll race? Yes, mph wins again

Also, 30 mph in your car is around 5500 rpm? Out of powerband?

^ I was at his rear QP from 30-105 and the 20 roll to 110 I pulled 2 cars.

400WHP/4200lbs = ~12.6@107mph (ET Calc). Sounds like he should have pulled you all over the place but a win is a win.

It's an auto and trust me if he spun he would've said something. He's a big poop talker haha. Makes it interesting.

Boosted I agree he should've pulled. No arguments here. Sounds like a high reading dyno.
