Im Really Not Trying To Be A N Azz But T Next Time Try Leaving When The 2nd Bulb Goes Out. Each Light Is .333 Seconds Long. So In All Reality If You Would Have Left At The 2nd Bulb You Would Have Been Closer To .000 Reaction.

And Ill Give Yall A Little Secret. The More Shallow You Are In The Beams The Faster Your E.t. Will Be. Cuz You Get A Run On The Beam Before It See's That You Have Left. Just My .02. And What I Always Do Is Light The Prestage Bulbs And Then Bump In And Just Get The Stage Bulbs To Flicker On. That Way You Know Where You Are At In The Beams Every Time.

Is There Two Sets Of Lights On The Tree? If So Your Staging Is Going To Effect Your E.t. Ive Raced There Before And Lost Out On A Bunch Of Money Because I F'ed Up Staging My Car And Went Red. Just Trying To Help.

When I race i usually leave just after the third yellow comes on it usually nets me a .1-.18 for a R/T. MY 60ft. just kills me.

theres 3 ambers then the green. idk maybe your right, but i was just quoting some of the guys at the track what they were telling me and that was that the time starts when you leave the lines, not when the light turns green.:tree: Maybe that is just for the "Open Race Days"??? .:confused013:

Look At It This Way. You Can Go Up And Let The Lights Turn Green And Sit There W/o Moving And The Timer Does Not Start Until Your Tires Get Out Of Both Beams. Your Reaction Time Does Not End Til You Clear The Beams And Whern That Happens Your E.t. Starts.
