Did some 1/8 mile last night, got 4 passes and developed some significant exhaust leak. Meh, back to the shop. Great fun, and of course the announcer had fun with us. "Did they shrink that car?" "What is that?"

GOOD
improved my burnouts
improved my launches

BAD
horrible shifts
should try 2nd gear launch instead

I competed in the 12.50 index class at the Import vs Domestics World Cup finals this past weekend. The track prep was so good that in Saturdays qualifications, I had to turn the boost down by 7psi (about 40whp) to dial in for 12.50s. My first pass I already assumed the track prep was great so it was down 4psi, I ended up pulling a 12.2 anyhow ! Part of me wanted to run full boost to claim a 11 sec pass, but I was focused on dialing the car in. I qualified 8th of 30 cars in that class. 700 cars showed up from around the country to run....... It was packed.

Sunday morning I got one shakedown pass, 12.47... a bit fast but I left the boost alone for a cushion. This was the 1st event I did on a pro tree, but I got it down fairly quick.

1st rd. Foxbody mustang, he pulled a .671 light, I pulled a .251....I pedaled before finish line crossing with a 12.57 to his 12.33 (ran out chasing). WIN

2nd rd. Turbo Intergra , he pulled a .309 light, I pulled a .062....I pedaled before finish line crossing with a 12.63 to his 12.67 . WIN .

Quarter finals. Mustang Cobra, he pulled a .095 light, I pulled a .139.... drove around him in 4th gear then pedaled it for a 12.60 to his 12.72. WIN

Semi finals. 69 Camaro, he pulled a .054 light, I pulled a .126.... when I was in 4th gear I had so much speed catching him, as soon as I was pulling by him I let off thinking I was gonna break out..... I made a mistake doing so. He won by .04 sec, on a holeshot with a 12.72 to my 12.69.

I was still happy to get that far, anouncer said my car was a crowd favorite... so that was especially humbling because 10,000 people were in the stands. Took home some cash and good memories. This was a promo video for the event to put in perspective its caliber . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWuiA...layer_embedded

that is awesome.. congrats dude. sux that you have to let off the a bit to win. haha..

I am not familiar with some of the drag lingo, but what did it mean when you said this?

Quote:
12.57 to his 12.33 (ran out chasing). WIN
does that mean he is too fast for the 12.50 class?

I guess the best example .... It is like Pinks All Out (the show). All the cars are capable of running 12.50, so it makes for super close racing. If you run too fast though, you are DQ'd. I decided to sandbag a bit because every once and a while I have a hard time getting in 2nd, so I wanted that cushion. I pedaled it or let off when I was slighty ahead to ensure I wasn't going to run faster than 12.50, hope that makes sense. That mustang that ran a 12.33 was clearly sandbaging, but I crossed the line first anyhow because I treed him... had he crossed 1st, he would have been DQ'd.

thank for explaining it.. I understand the sandbagging part and peddaling it so you dont go TOO fast for your class..

BUT, i still dont quit understand how you beat him in the tree, and you crossed the line before he did. and he still ran faster than you.. My brain is still trying to understand..

quick question may help me, Is "tree" time, how fast your response is when the light turns green to when the car starts to move?

OR, does it just not matter who crosses first, just who gets to point "a" to point "b" faster?

good questions. I've never seen index class racing, so I don't know either.

The "tree" is the light, yes. And the reaction time from the tree is what he is referencing.

It is also called "Handicapped" racing.

You are trying to get to the finish line first without going below your dialed in time, which in this case, was set at 12.5 seconds.

It does not matter who has the faster time - it is who crosses the line first. (Although, of course, the faster the time + the quicker reaction time usually = WIN unless you "break out" / go too fast and beat your dialed in time.)
