which would you rather have?
My car is so slow would it really matter?
Trap Speed...No need to go faster than 120-130 on the street.
trap...i'm not a highway racer, only drag at the track
I'd rather go [email protected] then [email protected] lol.
Hard one, Trap Speed is good, but Top Speed is fun too.. lol
I'm the other way around...I don't care about top speed but I would like the car to pull like an animal on the big end versus from stoplight to stoplight.
Trap speed is fun and top speed is dangerous and scary
sounds fun! gotta love adrenaline rushes epper:
as long as its only dangerous and scary to me and not putting other bystanders in danger (crowded streets/highways)
Dangerous and Scary is fun, that's why im riding Saddle Bronc after the summer :thumbsup:
more people can relate to top speed.
"wow the brand X can go 202 mph!"
HOLY CRAP THAT'S HAULING!
"hey did you know the brand Y can accelerate to 130 mph in just a quarter of a mile?
Cool, but did you know the Brand X can go 202 mph?
Trap speed and can be had at the track.
Top speed is a nice number that most will never see.
It's like using a power saw to cut tooth picks, but a least the neighbors know you have a power saw.
AUTOBAHN that should answer
It depends on the car.
Does it matter that a DB9 or 575M type car goes 116 through the traps if it can comfortably cruise all day at 175?
Would you want to go 175 in a a car like the Mustang for extended periods of time?
Some cars strength lies in high speed poise, some in quickness...
I think it depends on the situation. If you are racing at a drag strip, then of course the trap speed, however if you are running at Pocono using the front straight, turn 1, and the back straight, top speed is really important/fun. Nothing like going 150+ on the oval then breaking as hard as you can for the infield twisties.
That being said I can't choose, because I enjoy road racing more than drag racing, but you definetly need the power down low coming out of corners, but the top speed on the long straights.
For most people...
Trap speed = fun
Top speed = handcuffs
trap speed deffantley, i have raced at the strip and on the street, and it is still the fastest to excellerate, top speed is for million dollar doctors that have 20 miles driveways and millions of dollars to pay speedin tickets, i have niether, so it is excelleration, plus the faster ur trap speed the more braggin rights u got
