Actually, it's the opposite mate...you do not.
Quarter is a quarter mile 402,336 meters - no matter where on the moon or on mars. So are we trying to measure a "quarter time" or "drag strip time"?
If your friend's car runs 12 at the track it means it runs 12 in reality, if it runs 13.1 with the track apps on the street it means he can do around 12.9 on the street - simple. Because it sucks on the street. Does it mean we can't race outside the drag strip? Hell no! Your car will spent 95% of it's life on the street so for me the street time is more important.
Drag strip can improve your time drastically.
If I ever put aftermarket wheels I can easily reprogram the size with ForScan for free. Tire size should be programmed correctly otherwise your ABS and TRACTION CONTROL may not work properly.
Still failing to understand the point I'm making so I'll make it simple for you, no measurements in meters here. You add mods to your car, a bunch , a few , whatever. Longtubes? Maybe throw some E 85 too Throw sticky tires on the car, maybe skinnies up front. You put on your track apps throw in quarter mile launch the car and beat the hell out of it powershifting whatever you gotta do. Your running 13s in track app that is supposed to give your True quarter mile time. I think that's called inaccurate. You don't put on track apps and say my cars a 13 second car when ideally it's low 12 or high 11s . What is so accurate about a second off? The only way to tell an accurate quarter mile time is go to the dragstrip. Also abs and traction control work perfectly fine while tire size are different. Never had issues
