Say what????? If you lost way too many on a breakout? Judge the stripe? Holding? Figure out your number and how to be consistent. ET racing is racing your own demons, not the other guy.

Bottom line: games are only played when you fxxk up or know your pass is fxxked up. If you run your number and cut a light then there isn't any games. This isn't the board game CLUE. There is nothing to figure out, except your own shxt.

But I mostly run this 7.2 Harley bracket so I don't need to change much, I just need to run 7.2 consistent.

I do like to set some new ET pb so i Will be trying to get into 6s next weekend at a test night

Time slip from the run. I might be able to get into 6s if I get my start dialed in better

You’ll be well into the 6s if you can get to a 1.50 60’ and you make more than enough power to get there.
