    Relative trap speed?

    I took my car to the track last Sunday and ran a best of 8.34@97.4MPH. I ran it three times, first run I let off on it cause I almost slammed it in first from 2/3 shift, second run it was all over the road and posted a 9.20, final run I sprayed trackbite, hooked good out of the hole but spun through second (8.34ET). Both full runs the trap speed was 97.4 on the money. Weird?

    Anyway, I wondered if you guys could guesstimate my trap through the 1/4 mile from the 1/8 speed?

    Any where from 120-125 depending on the car. Does the car have a kit on it? Oh and the high trap speed could be from lack of traction.
