"Each day well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this one day for it, and it alone, is life"
~ Sanskrit poem attributed to Kalidasa, "Salutation to the Dawn"
In the context of racing cars, is 55 mph too fast for a flat, 90-degree downtown street corner with a radius of <75' ? Is 55 mph too slow for a superelevated highway curve with a radius of 27,000'?
Or put another way: Would you be impressed with a vehicle that could do the former? Would you think that the latter is a good example of performance?
Surely it can't hurt you to directly respond to two such straight-forward questions, as I have to all of yours.

some days they were slower, some days they were not. But the overwhelming preponderance of city street courses on the Indycar schedule this year indicated a much slower season of racing from them. NASCAR races will mostly be faster.
Regardless, either way it is minimally debatable. Therefore, touting that in their marketing efforts seems like a pretty obvious approach. If someone gets bent out of shape because of that, IMO they need to get a life. Fast.
How slow will they be racing on those weekends?
How many weekends will they be racing faster than NASCAR this season?
Excuse me, but one of those "NASCAR is racing" weeks is on the air right now.
See you in St. Pete.
Anyway Penelope, you've convinced me. IndyCar claiming to be fastest is a great affront to everyone, everywhere. Truly vile and reprehensible.
But I'm more pissed off at Disneyland for claiming to be the "Happiest Place on Earth." That's worse. There is an overwhelming preponderance of happiness elsewhere. Join me Penelope, Disney must be stopped.
Faster is faster, just like you said Faster on the same track is faster, just like I said. Faster on more difficult tracks is also faster, except according to you.
To the question 'is 55 mph too fast for a flat, 90-degree downtown street corner with a radius of <75' ? you responded "No". To the question' is 55 mph too slow for a superelevated highway curve with a radius of 27,000', you also responded "No".
You also said yes, that you would you think that the latter is a good example of performance.
Why did you have to concede to these crazy, contradictory examples? Because to not do so would be to concede that sometimes 55 mph is pretty darn fast for conditions, and sometimes that same 55 mph veocity is pretty darn slow for conditions - that "faster" and "slower" as a measure of performance in racing is relative to conditions - something everyone involved with motor vehicles and motorsports would recognize as common sense, but a premise you have denied repeatedly here.
Thank you for finally allowing this ridiculous evasion to cease If I have left any of your questions unanswered, I apologize for the omission. Please feel free to ask them again.
Daytona 500 - 140.256mph
St. Petersburg - 4 weeks away
I believe that a 140.256mph race is faster than any race Indycar will hold until late May. I'm sure you'll agree. Either that or you'll babble nonsense for three months explaining why 140.256mph is not really as fast as 82mph at St. Petersburg.
Faster on race day is faster on race day. You can tell us all about it in May.
140.256 mph is slower than 194.738 mph, right?
So that means that NASCAR is slower than NASACAR, right?
Or am I missing something?
new sig pending
Both races were NASCAR races. Really for the purpose of this thread we should only count the points-paying races.So that means that NASCAR is slower than NASACAR, right?
Or am I missing something?
NASCAR has held one race at 140.256mph this year and Indycar has held 0 races this year.
What in particular in my response struck you as overly analytical or as nonsense? Seems the only nonsense has been introduced by you, as your response above admits.
Interested to hear you explain how something that is "too fast" is somehow slower than something that is "too slow"
Probably because the 194 got compared to a 210 for IndyCar.
Anybody got any trap speeds from Infinenon?
except the 194.738 mph I referred to was the pole speed for the Daytona 500.Both races were NASCAR races.
He does wish to use unofficial trap speeds and practice speeds as acceptable criteria, though.
I don't care what stats you use. Knock yourself out like Donna Quixote
It's your methodology that is contrived to fit the narrow premise.
