    Default Reaction time on drag strip

    I know it doesn't matter in terms of getting a good time during Secret Street, but has anyone ever gotten a perfect 0.500 reaction time? When is one supposed to go, I've been told second yellow.

    My best reaction time is 0.536 but I can't remember when I went

    i did .501 once and only once most of mine are about .600 - .700 cause i would rather have a good launch the a good reaction time.

    But yeah second yellow if you care about reaction time on a sportsman tree and first yellow on a pro tree.

    Yeah, not too hard to launch my car since its an automatic and I'm usually the first to stage as I don't do any burnouts. I sit there and have all the time in the world to try to get a good reaction time AND launch. Next time I go I'll try to shoot for a 0.500

    And what a wonderful win for the LUDE!!! haha. That was funny man. I think u got scared or something!! Scared that I might actually come ripping across into ur lane and hit ur car!! haha.
    For those of you that went out to the zoo and saw my tire, I ended up getting it replaced. Apparently, the entire sidewall (on the inside) tore apart from the rest of the tire, so I'm glad nothing happened while driving. It ended up costing me another 100 dollars. At least I'm confident that it won't explode next time I'm on deerfoot!!

    It wasn't from drifting man! :p It was from hitting a pothole or something. Besides, it was my front tire and not my rear!
