One way it happens is that one car, (for example the lower powered of the two), gets a pretty decent start, and heads off up the strip. The second car, (for example with more power, perhaps big single turbo and tripple plate clutch), launches at a similar time but drops the clutch in too quick and bogs the engine down.MADsteve said:Just want to add aquestion to this (sorry if it steers it slight off track, but how come 2 cars that cross the line at the same point can be travelling at (grossly) different speeds??
The answer's probably simple:nervous: :nervous: but I never was a whizz at physics
Yeah, I agree with this. Its amazing to see how much time you lose by slightly fluffing the launch or taking a little longer over a gear change.SteveN said:People seem to forget about launching and just think towards power power power.
If miss a gear or have a prob and let off when doing a properly storming run its possible that way too.
