Pembroke Pines, FL (PRWEB) January 4, 2007
DragTimes.com has expanded their drag racing database to include real world dyno results and graphs for cars and motorcycles submitted from sports car and drag racing enthusiasts worldwide. The dyno graphs show actual horsepower and torque numbers measured at the wheels as well as all performance related modifications made to the vehicle in order to obtain the recorded power levels. Some of the newly added dyno submissions include high-powered cars such as a Ford GT Twin-Turbo with over 1,000 horsepower down to fuel-efficient economy cars such as the Honda Fit putting down less than 100 horsepower.
With hundreds of dyno sheets already available and new submissions coming in daily, DragTimes.com aims to provide a centralized dyno database available for all automotive makes and models. The new data can be used for research and comparisons between actual horsepower measurements in the real world versus what the automotive makers claim, as well as for documenting power gains as performance parts are added to each vehicle. For records that do not have dyno sheets attached, a horsepower calculator is available to provide horsepower estimates that are calculated from the vehicle's quarter mile trap speed, quarter mile ET and weight.
In response to user requests a special section dedicated to feature past and present day muscle cars was created. This newly formed area contains pictures, videos, dyno graphs and drag racing details on classic muscle cars such as a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro and 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. Modern day muscle cars are also included with the latest Chevrolet Corvettes and Dodge Vipers battling each other for bragging rights with regards to power, torque, looks and outright acceleration numbers.
Dragtimes.com is an established automotive resource that maintains a drag racing and dyno database consisting of over 9,400 1/4 mile drag racing timeslips for fast cars and motorcycles. Thousands of pictures and hundreds of drag racing videos for many of the user-contributed submissions are available to browse through by car make and model.
