ol hickeydoo (racer17J) made me think about this while I was readin his taunts about beatin us southern boys(personally I think its yankee babble), but anyway heres a posting for our lap times using two scenarios
1 a tacky track
2 3/8 mile
3 soft tires allowed
4 alum intake/600 carb/500cam/headers
this is scenario A

next scenario
1 a dry slick trk
2 3/8th mile
3 d55 type tires
4 alum intake/600 carb/500 cam/headers
this is scenario B

our laps scenario A 16.95 to 17.40

best 16.83 average 17.00
dry slick
3/8th mile
G60 imca's
bowtie intake 750 holley cast iron manifolds
my car is probably slower on a tacky track...i just don't set it up or care how it handles on a tacky track cause the hotlaps don't pay that good.The 16.83 was when the track was just staring to rubber down....eat the right rear off the car but it was hooked.

most places up north here run g60 tires so i dont think you'll ever get an accurate lap time comparison. plus tracks that are 3/8 mile can be close to the same or nowhere near the same (banking, how tight the corners are, dirt or clay ect..) i just think those iowa boys take racing serious and they are fast.

well you know up there the options are race cars/corn/stump broke cows. I'd race too wouldnt you. lol but seriously you other guys throw out some times even if the parameters aren't the exact same. just say the differences and give the numbers like rico08 did

by the way a fellow named chumley won the street stock nationals couple of years ago, he was from alabama. while you may be correct on those records, I have to crack on both our esteemed tracks, talladega short trak and east ala mtr speedway. by the times the mains get goin the track owners have stuffed their pockets with enuf money (maybe their carpetbaggers) that they dont care about any rules or enforcement. its just get it over with anyway you can, and generally thats knock em out of the way or run over em, half the field doesn't even finish.

I'll agree with stockcar5 you really can't get an accurate comparison...heck our track is 3/8 and we usually run in the high 19's while the super lates are in the low 16's. It really depends on the track.
