reaction time has NOTHING to do with what you run in a car, the 3 most important data sets for a track run are your 60ft time, your end quarter mile time and your mph..timpryor said:Well i went to my local strip yesterday and got a new best despite them running a Pro-tree and me thinking they were running a sportsman tree.
new 1/4-16.06 @85.88
new best reaction was .7632
All i want is to hit 15's in this car
I don't mean to be disagreeable but how can you say reaction time has NOTHING to do with what you run? Your reaction time is kinda just time you're sitting there being timed while doing nothing isn't it? If you did the same run with a better reaction time your time will theoretically be that much faster wouldn't it? Or does it not start timing you until after you've left?SpectorV said:reaction time has NOTHING to do with what you run in a car, the 3 most important data sets for a track run are your 60ft time, your end quarter mile time and your mph..
I didn't know that, so you can actually leave three seconds later and finish two seconds after the other person and have a one second faster time and win even though you finished second? That is kinda strange, hahaha. I think next time I go, instead of staging I'm just going to blow through it and go down, hahaha.timpryor said:SpectorV is right reaction is just for self satisfaction. if you sit and wait for 4 seconds on your reaction it wont affect your ET. your 1/4 mile time starts whenever you leave the starting line.
my 60ft on that run was a 2.39 i need to get it down to 2.2 and i'll be in the 15's. I'm thinking of a 75 shot eventually.
Ahh, i see. I have never really had a close race at the track, you could always clearly tell who won or lost. I didn't know it didn't time that. Some guy on here had a 1.8 60ft. with a v6 auto. He had nitrous but I can't imagine using it too much in the first 60 ft. He did well thoughtimpryor said:no you will still lose however it does not affect your time, in most rules its whoever crosses the line 1st wins
