Default How long should a drag strip be?

Guys I'm really getting into this "drag bike" I'm building, but while crunching numbers I realized I needed a constant number to go with time, I needed distance (don't nothin' get by me). Soooo I'm thinking 1/10th of a mile: 528 feet can be accurately measured,somewhere safe. Then with engine running see how fast you can go from dead stop to the marked end. Yeah drag racing!

1/10th of a mile is one city block, red light to red light, like back in the day.

Well what do you guys & gals think???

Plus this gives you a place to test your improvements!!!

Keep'er straight on the strip.Walter F.
