ok, so help me out there guys. i have a few questions. i went to the local track. does a faster reaction time lower your et? or does the et on the time slip just represent what the car itself ran? the reason i ask is because the first time i went to the track i was running 13.5, 13.7, 13.7, 13.6 but my reaction time was horrible .5-.800 went i went last week and this week i was able to drop my reaction time to .116 -.081. but the car was running low 14's...?????? low 14's on a lightly modified (
cai, tune, exhaust,) s197? i was so embarrased. i have a 5spd. my 60ft is 2.1-2.2 with 275-40-18s, 3.55's no suspension mods. is this a typical 60ft? how much lower can i get my 60ft with upper&lowers, and without a gear change or drag radials? right now im feeling like theres something wrong with my car.

Those numbers sound about right to me. 2.1 on street tires is not unreasonable at all. The difference between 14 and 13.6 could be weather and/or track conditions, etc.

Reaction time has nothing to do with ET. RT is the time that lapses between the time the light turns green and your tires cross the starting line. You can sit at the line for 3 days and your ET would change. ET is the time from when you cross the start line to crossing the finish line.
