If you wait for the light to go green, you will have a terrible reaction time. Assuming you are running on a Sportsman Tree (which you likely will be) you will want to hit the gas on the third (last) yellow. A sportsman tree is .500 seconds from light to light. If you gas it when you see the third yellow, you have a shot at a pretty good reaction time. Wait to see green and you will likely have a reaction time in excess of .600 . .. which is bad.89 GTGHOST said:when the light goes green..put the pedal through the floor!
Sounds like a pretty decent timeslip in light of the circumstances.lthompson05 said:So I've known for a while my car needed a new transmission. Now I am forced to get one. My first run I blew my tranny before I had time to get to second gear and I ran a 22.40 at 77.08. Time to put in a manual transmission and get back to the track. It was definately exhilirating just being at the start, too bad I didn't get to actually run a quarter mile.
