Yes, That and Lamborghinis are total pieces of shit.
mph is mostly determined in the first 60 feet.
the gtr with awd probably hooks better, thus, lower mph per ET
its the same way hondas running 10's trap 140
but mustangs running 10s only trap like 125
B hit it on the head. It doesn't matter what speeds it traps as much as 60' times.
Traction is what matters, which is why civics will trap lower, but faster times after you change out the street tires for slicks.
On a sidenote: this is exactly why the NHRA changed the distance for Funny Cars and Top Fuel to 1000 feet. People were just going too fast.
(Many turbine driven car drivers will tell you that 1/4 is just too short to get up to speed.)
Really they only run 1000 feet? I never knew that before.
Just changed not too long ago...
