Drag Racing Technical

This area will be for posting questions and answers I receive, and as the site grows I will attempt to set up a discussion forum for anyone interested. My host does not allow perl scripting server side I am told so I may have to set up an offsite discussion list. For the moment this area will be for questions and answers.

As I find any helpful technical information I will add it to this page. I have a number of formulas that I have collected over the years and will add them as time permits.

If I can assist in any way please leave me an e-mail and I will post the info on this page.

As soon as I work out how to do forms, I will add one so your questions and answers may be posted here.
