Building a 10 second car

We look at what it takes to build a 10 second car and examine the power and weight requirements to reach the sub 11 second goal on the drag strip.

Follow our tips and you can make a 10 second car quite cheaply and within your budget with some power mods and serious weight reduction.


Drag racing techniques, launch and gear changes.

Your reaction time can make all the difference in a quarter mile race. As soon as the lights change to Green the average Torquecars member takes around 1.5 – 2 seconds to get the car moving off the line.

You can probably judge the light changes after a few runs and cut precious time on the launch. To keep your reaction time sharp avoid alcoholic drinks and heavy greasy food and get plenty of sleep the night before.


The racing line and high speed cornering techniques.

When taking corners the aim is to keep the car balanced throughout the bend and you need the highest exit speed you can manage.

We are talking balance between the front and rear of the car as the car will be likely to skid if weight is biased to the front or rear.

When on the track all movements, acceleration, braking and steering should all be done steadily and progressively.
