Reaction time doesn't mean squat unless you're running against someone, It has no bearing on your ET. But like we've said leaving on the last yellow is the best way to shorten it.Craig

My car has always ran better in 3rd gear. Just put it into 3rd and go you will never hit 4th gear so dont worry about putting it into drive.

I do click it down into first for the burnout though. I have the 3.23 gears and itll hit second then bog down. Once i put in my 3.73's and get line lock i should easily be able to roll through second

Thanks for all the input....I've ran cars at the track before just wasnt sure how the best way to go and launch this one. The last pass before the battery went completely dead I stalled the car high and it spun terrible. Had to let out completely OOPS. ran a 15 something..Gotta pedal it a little next time out.
