View Full Version : How fast is your reaction time?

03-15-2003, 12:06 AM
I use to race a front engine dragster, later we switched to rear engine. I've won my share but by my reaction time now sucks! My best was .016, but it's the first 5 beers I've had in a long time. Wonder what it's going to be like after a couple more? Better not go back to racing. lol
How quick are ya you speed demons?

I could only manage a 0.23 /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

2.5 im slow.

My best was a 0.09 and it said "Well Done."

My average was around .22 or .23. Said I needed work.

Hi, Rod. Just curious: did you try it both right-handed and left-handed? I was about 50% faster right-handed than left-handed.--D.M.

Your answering time is: 0.032 seconds. You've got snake reflexes!<hr /></blockquote>

I've heard similar comments from women I've dated. I mean the...uhhh...0.032 seconds part.

For the longest my best was .25 I tried to anticipate the color change and after several tries managed a time of zero seconds. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

WOW You guys are fast. My fastest is .121. My average was .24

I just tried that left handed, I hit several .026 to .028, where with my right hand .020 to .022 was average. I don't think my mouse works very well left handed. lol

In drag racing our pro light took 1/4 (.250) of a second from the time we saw the color change from yellow to green. We only had two lights yellow &amp; green. When you saw the yellow it's time to go! Factor in the time it took to load the chassis, ie torque at the rear wheels and spring in the chassis, as well as the 6" roll to break the light beam. If you broke the beam at .4 tenths of a second it would be a perfect light. Anything faster is a foul or red light and your opponent gets cue ball in hand! LOL

If my reaction time to this internet test was .250 in real drag racing my opponent would have 2 or three car lengths on me. My reaction time is still pretty good but it only takes .0001 of a second to lose a race. My avg reaction time in racing was about .425 to .430, Probably more than you wanted to know.

http://www.reflexgame.com/ This is a better link, you can choose background color.

Reflexes don't matter at all, it is all time relative. There is not intelligence in it.

The reflexgame measures time differently on different computers, on my old computer I once got 60 ms 30 times in a row because there was something wrong with the game that day, I got 0 seconds many times too. A few days later I got over 100 ms again.

This is how it measures time on my computer: 188 ms, 187, 172, 171, 157, 156, 141, 140, 125, 110, 109. It displays only these numbers and not the numbers in between them, so if the real time is over or under the numbers abvove, then it displays the number that is closest to it.
At first I used to get over 200 ms reaction time, now I often get under 156 ms, sometimes I got 140 ms over 10 times in a row and once 125 ms 3 times in a row, 110 ms a few times and 109 ms also few times. I get under 100 ms many times but it is always luck.
My reaction time is not faster since I started, I only focus in a different way than before, when I focus as bad as when I started, then I get over 200 ms again. Sometimes I can focus very hard and that's why I got below 125 ms.

It also depends on what mouse you use, with my better mouse I get 30 ms higher reaction time than with my old mouse. This is because of how strong the spring of the mouse button is, how fast the mouse button goes up after you release it. Both are cordless and my old mouse has higher latency, but it still is faster because of the strong spring.

100 ms is 1 tenth, .1 of a second. Is that correct? The method I used was hit the stop button when the light changed. That averaged over .2 of a second. In my earlier post I said .016 which was wrong. It should have been 0.16. If I hold down the stop button and release then I average 0.16 to 0.17 with several 0.11 times in there. Anyway in drag racing it's push not release to start. No it doesn't take any intelligence but if your strapped onto 800 HP it'll make your testicals shrink to a peanut! LOL

.08 was my fastest. I cheated though. You can click the stop button and hold it down until the background changes. This speeds up the time. Without doing that, I was able to get a .161.
