in the interest of science, a perspective of its speed.(and because i was bored and need to study for a dynamics exam) i took out the calculator and got some more numbers then the ones provided:

provided:

60FT 0.953

330FT 2.563

1/8 mile 3.813@316KM/H (197MPH)

1/4 mile 5.774 @399 KM/H (247MPH)

also, i will be working in metric, because f*ck you and your antiquated arbitrary measuring system

also, working in rough numbers.

found:

1/4 mile:

AVG acceleration = 19m/s^2 = 2g

speed = given (400km/h)

time = given (5.77)

1/8 mile:

AVG acceleration = 23.15m/s^2 = 2.3g

speed = given (316km/h)

time = given (3.8s)

60 ft:

AVG acceleration = 40.2m/s^2 = 4.1g

speed = 138.1 km/h = 86mph....so in 60ft and 1 second, this thing is going highway speeds. holy tits.

time = given (0.953s)

330 ft:

AVG acceleration = 30.2m/s^2 = 3.1g

speed = 282.3km/h = 176.43mph

time = given (2.563)

calculations for those interested (sorry for it being sideways)
