Post up:
1) Best 60ft. time.
2) If you thought one lane was better than the other.
3) Best reaction time.(.5000 is perfect for those that might not know... coughfishbonecough:p
4) How many runs you were able to make, if you broke on a pass count that too just to make it easier. One thing I think everyone will agree on is you'll get your money's worth of passes if you want.

Mine:
1) 1.9913
2) For me I didn't find any different traction wise but didn't like driving through a puddle when I was bypassing the water box.:rolleyes:It did dry up though.
3) .5604
4) 9, but could have make 3 or 4 more at the end.

60 = 1.5740
I liked the left but ran 2 11.15's in the right I'd say they were equal.
Reaction .5888
I made 9 passes would have liked to make 1 or 2 more with the seats out to see if I could hit a 10

I know how you feel, I did that last year in the bracket semi-final when my opponent was going to have to sit and wait for 5 seconds!

You guys should know better. NEVER RACE THE OTHER GUY. Always race yourself. Psyching the other guy out is a big part of drag racing. Put blinders on, forget the numbers, and just run the tree. ;)

I made 2 passes but Will has the stats.

That's pretty dang consistent.

Apparently it doesn't matter for me since my worst RT was when I had a single pass. I was the first car staged every time and had a few seconds to wait on all the other passes. On the single pass I staged and was caught off guard when the lights started coming on immediately.:rolleyes: I guess that doesn't matter since I wasn't racing anyone.:p

Yeh I know I shouldnt be thinking of the other guy/gal, but I try to hammer the light every chance I get. Car was pretty consistant in the 12.24 to 12.32 range. The 60ft is what made the difference in the runs and the last one of the day of a 12.54 had that lovely belt issue.

My best 1/8th was a 7.70 that netted the 12.24.. That could have been the 11.999999 run but 3rd gear didnt pull near as hard with it slipping the SC.

David, your best 60 foot was a 1.68, I think. It may have been a tad faster. I don't have the timeslip handy, but I'll check it when I can. You also ran a 1.88 with me in the car.

That is my thoughts exact, well except at the big end if they aren't catching me I'll let out.

3 years ago I lifted because I didn't think Rob Hammer was going to catch me and he won because of it. It is definately a hard thing to decide when to do.

Trophy compared to ET's I'll take the ET's every time.

Guess not everyone thinks that way! ;)

I will take the ET everytime, not even a choice as far as I am concern. If next year my index 11.50 11.99 and I can run a 11.4 I'm all over that;):D

Best reaction time was .649 which was my best 60' at 1.7139. I lost all my races because of my sucky reaction times. I need some schooling on that; I plan on going to KY on November 7th for more practice. My car is a high 11 second car - combine it with the driver it becomes a low 12 second combo.

I guess I am not following youWhat he means is if you know your car you should be able to dial in accurately and run it all out. If you have to brake to win then you aren't dialing in correctly and/or can't drive. In real competitive bracket racing you won't find the winners using the brakes.

That about sums it up Dave especially if you are running a dial in bracket.

If you're running an Index bracket and there is not a breakout of say .02 then you just run it all out for the best ET you can get if you are that close. You never know what is going to happen in the other lane. Run your car, your lane and don't worry about whats happening over in the opposite lane till you cross the stripe.

Either way, your best ET should be all that matters in the end. Especially for this group and forum since most are not full time drag racers. Its more for braggin rights LOL!

If you are running competition for money or big time status thats another story altogether. The cars will generally all be competitive and within a certain index. Sometimes they do play games there. Been there and done that.

I guess I don't know how to drive as my car seemed to always get faster as the night went on, I always have to dial faster than my best run and dial faster as the night goes on. The car I drove at the shootout was all over the place but I understood why because it had not been tuned for the gear and converter changes. It just didn't know when to shift.
