could the first page trap index be edited to include a generic RWHP/trap index for modded/modding s2000s? it might make a nice FAQ type reference point for build goals.

S2000 trap speeds:
stock....... 98-102mph
250whp... 102-106mph
300whp.... xxmph
350whp.... xxmph
400whp.... xxmph
500whp.... xxmph
650whp.... xxmph

I dont like to use trap speed as an indicator on racing a 1/4 mile. my fastest pass was a 12.2 at 117mph, but i also ran a 13.01 and 122mph. so there are many other factors

Trap speeds have a lot to do with roll races as they are a decent indicator of lbs/hp and aerodynamics. This ratio is about as good an indicator as anything in predicting the winner of a roll race as traction and a driver's ability to launch successfully are not a consideration.

The skill of the driver just doesn't make as much difference between two drivers in a roll race as compared to a race from a stop. Therefore the pure speed of the car is more heavily factored into the result. Given equal cars a good driver will usually prevail over an average or poor driver, but that's not really a surprise.
