Stoker, I'm glad you couldn't find it either. I thought I was losing my mind. I realize now I never had one.

Alex says this formula is accurate to within about 1%.

Add .24 to your 1/8 mile time and then divide by .655

What was up with the post last week (maybe the week before) that started off with a negative number of replies? It was the only one that was goofy so I didnt think much about it.

I saw that one too, and I don't know why that happened.

When I try to think too much about this computer code stuff, I get a headache.
