DragTimes.com Expands Drag Racing Database to Include Dynamometer Data, Features Muscle Cars and Launches Syndication Scripts

Pembroke Pines, FL (PRWEB) January 4, 2007

DragTimes.com has expanded their drag racing database to include real world dyno results and graphs for cars and motorcycles submitted from sports car and drag racing enthusiasts worldwide. The dyno graphs show actual horsepower and torque numbers measured at the wheels as well as all performance related modifications made to the vehicle in order to obtain the recorded power levels. Some of the newly added dyno submissions include high-powered cars such as a Ford GT Twin-Turbo with over 1,000 horsepower down to fuel-efficient economy cars such as the Honda Fit putting down less than 100 horsepower.

With hundreds of dyno sheets already available and new submissions coming in daily, DragTimes.com aims to provide a centralized dyno database available for all automotive makes and models. The new data can be used for research and comparisons between actual horsepower measurements in the real world versus what the automotive makers claim, as well as for documenting power gains as performance parts are added to each vehicle. For records that do not have dyno sheets attached, a horsepower calculator is available to provide horsepower estimates that are calculated from the vehicle’s quarter mile trap speed, quarter mile ET and weight.

RSS feed and email notification systems are available to keep users informed with the newest cars as they come in for their favorite make and model. To supplement the RSS feeds, syndication scripts are also available for automotive website and forum developers to present live data directly on their website with one line of HTML and JavaScript code.

In response to user requests a special section dedicated to feature past and present day muscle cars was created. This newly formed area contains pictures, videos, dyno graphs and drag racing details on classic muscle cars such as a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro and 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. Modern day muscle cars are also included with the latest Chevrolet Corvettes and Dodge Vipers battling each other for bragging rights with regards to power, torque, looks and outright acceleration numbers.

About DragTimes.com

Dragtimes.com is an established automotive resource that maintains a drag racing and dyno database consisting of over 9,400 1/4 mile drag racing timeslips for fast cars and motorcycles. Thousands of pictures and hundreds of drag racing videos for many of the user-contributed submissions are available to browse through by car make and model.

Platinum Television Group Features Series on American Muscle Cars

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 22, 2006 –

Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce that its Competitive Edge show will feature a special three-part series on American Muscle Cars, highlighting products that fit the trends of today’s baby boomers. The show will air on Spike TV, ESPN2, and Fox Sports Net.

A muscle car, by the strictest definition, is an intermediate sized, performance oriented model, powered by a large V8 engine, at an affordable price. Instead of buying new model cars, those hooked on muscle cars buy older and older cars (from the 50s-70s mainly)—the better the vintage, the better the deal.

For example, Musclecarclub.com features one of the most extensive and informative web sites about American muscle cars. The Muscle Car Club is dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of all American muscle cars. Everything is covered here, from Hemis to GTOs, Shelbys and even a few Buicks, with statistics, histories, descriptions, and pictures. The site’s gift shop includes accessories, apparel, featuring Buick, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Ford, art work and posters, clocks and watches, car care items to make them look (and smell) like new, and much more.

There are shops all over the country devoted to restoring, rebuilding and reselling classic cars. For many, it is more than a hobby, sport or interest—it is a way of life. There are trade shows, conventions, regional groups, and more for socializing and comparing cars, but there is also the personal aspect of an individual interacting with road, car and speed and the pride he takes in a shiny, renovated classic.

The Competitive Edge show is a celebration of sports and sports enthusiasts, featuring the newest of products and ideas, trends in sporting events, commentary from professional athletes and sports experts, emphasis on local sporting events and interests. It is aired on local and national television networks, and produced by Platinum Television Group.
