My first time at the track, the fourth run (worst was 14.086, missed 3'd gear /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_redface.gif).

What a great rush /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif!

Mods: magnetic oil plug.

Time slips:

Hi all,

Yes, ddle, they must have had their clock set wrong, it was Friday 6/8.

I ran with about a half a tank of gas, that doesn't explain the reaction time, must have been napping waiting for the lights. Really, I wasn't taking any lead-off, I was waiting till I saw the green light before I took off. A little practice, which I plan later to do in the next month or so (still cleaning the rubber and tar from this run), I should get into the low 12s.

I'm pretty sure all the reported times begin at the green light, including R/T. So any improvement in R/T comes right off the bottom line.


Frank, I may be hooked! Am planning next trip back to track for first Monday next month. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Silver Bullet,

I'm confused. Does this mean you can sit at the line with a green light without affecting your time ? This seems inconsistent with most drags I've seen. Please explain more.
Thanks Silver Bullet for peaking my curiosity to look it up! I found a web site that explains the Christmas tree and the starting process, it wasn't what I expected.

Indeed you are correct R/T has nothing to do with the times. Looks like I'll have to concentrate on tire hook-up a lot more.

Thanks for your comments.
