I was going to ask, what is the best way to do that? What apps/equipment are you guys using for speeds/times?
Pick up one of these. You can record both top speeds and do drag pulls with it.

@DLK83 nice project build!!
Thank you! I've been doing a ton of reading and testing, it's becoming obvious that tire prep is the only real way to get 8s power to the ground, just not sure if it's worth the extra stress on the drive train and the mess..
Just a quick & dirty mockup..

You have a sketch or
some reference graphics to what you're wanting??
 
So I've been collecting parts, new and used, got a bunch from the wife and kids for Xmas and some real good used stuff from the great people of the Arrma forum.. it's not much, but it's a start and the only real "fabrication" I should have to do in this build.. I know it's totally unnecessary but I wanted to do something different. I'm getting rid of the rx box altogether, as this will never see wet conditions, which means having to come up with a servo mount.. got a nice used Scorched mount and Promodeler DS360 from the classifieds and this is how it turned out... 5/64" pilot, 1/8" thru hole and did my best to countersink the holes with a 15/64" bit. Please, all you actual machinist in the crowd, go easy, I did my best lol...

Finally got some time to work on the drag truck today, got the rear module all put together with all the new goodies... Basherqueen tower, Scorched spool with hybrid ceramic bearings, Scorched adjustable C & D blocks set to 0.7 degrees, HR t2t mount and diff case cover, M2C droop screws and a Scorched input cup... feels good to get some wrenching time in on this, hopefully I can get the front finished soon and start tuning
