Thread: ???????????????

    ???????????????

    Will someone clarify for me please? When you line up your vehicle at the tree and the light goes green does time start as soon as the light goes green or do you take off and then the time starts?

    your E.T. is the time from when you leave until the time you cross the line. but if you are racing someone the race starts when the light goes green, thats where reaction time comes into play. make sense?

    Well yes but it just seems like the tree is obselete in a solo run.

    The reason is that I thought this guy would of run a 10 sec 1/4 if he would of had a better RT but I gues I was wrong. The tree is only for a 2 vehicle race then.

    think of the tree as just a visual way to yell GO!!

    if you're racing someone & you both have the same E.T. (time from when you start til you cross the finish), the one with the lowest reaction time (whoever left first) wins.
