    I suck at it as well.
    I don't bracket race, so it doesn't concern me.

    But...leave on the last yellow.

    Cutting a good R:T is all in a mind set. Lots of practice helps, You are prob getting excited and not realizing your leaving that early.

    My way of cutting good lights is I stair at the bottom amber light only, Do not watch the first light or you will red light.

    but seriously practice does make perfect, and you will see as i did that th more you go to the track the more calmer and consistent you become.

    I would suggest also coming up with some sort of system so that you can become a bit more consistent. I currently count in my head "1 and 2 and go"

    I would also imagine your reaction time is going to vary quite a bit if your are still learning how to launch your car since it might respond differently.
