Come on, post this sort of stuff on a different thread, or make a new one for the specific topic, don't discuss REP+ on this thread. Obviously the forum directors have an issue with an earlier topic with you, so save it for later!

In relation to launches/reaction time (RT):

.500 is absolutely perfect, this is what you are aiming for. Anything below .500 such as .499 and you will do what is called a foul, where you went before the light turned green. Now if you are doing bracket racing (trying to get as close to your dial in estimated time as possible) then you reaction time is added to your finishing time.

So here is an example:

Say your bracket ET is 16.00 seconds. So you run a .525 RT and a 16.10 1/4 mile time. However in this example you got a .525 RT, so you would take the .525 and add it to your 1/4 time (16.10 +.525 = 16.625). So since your dial in ET was 16.00, and your total 1/4 mile time, (RT + 1/4 time) was 16.625 you ran pretty close to your dial in ET and have a very good chance of winning a bracket race.

Head to head racing is whoever crosses the finish line fastest, however there are exceptions. You have to do the same thing with the RT and add it to your 1/4 time.

So say you are racing head to head. You run a 10.00 sec. 1/4 mile with a .600 RT.

Your oppenent runs a 9.90 RT with a 1.00 RT.

Now obviously the .600 RT is alot better then the 1.00 RT but who is the winner? The 10.00 sec. 1/4 mile racer would win this race because:

-You ran a 10.00 1/4 mile, + .600 which means your quarter mile time was 10.60

-Your openent ran a faster time then you (9.90) however they had a poor RT (1.00) which would add up to 10.90 1/4 mile time.

Obviously 10.60 is faster then 10.90.

The nitto1320 site explains all of this very well and can be found here, I HIGHLY SUGGEST EVERYONE READ THAT THREAD! I hoped this helped people.

And the question about breaking out: You break out because you run better then your dial in ET. So say your dial in ET was 10.00 seconds and you run a 9.99 then you broke out because your time was faster, regardless of your RT. So then next race you may want to lower your ET down to 9.90 and shoot for that.

*EDIT* Fixed errors.

Unlocking the Mopar to be bought in the carshowroom was asked earlier, and the link was down. However it is back up, so to unlock the Mopar:

-Go here
-Halfway down the page you should see "Stage 3" right above the picture of the parts of the turbo kit.
-Click the "stage 3" picture and a website should come up asking to you to enter your username.
-Type in your user name and submit
-Next time you log in check your car showroom because the Mopar will be in there.

I suggest everyone get one because they look sweet are run a 6.2 1/4 mile.

Don't have enough cash to buy it right now. I can sometimes get around 6.6 - 6.7 in my viper, but my current gear ratios are very hard to drive. I often get some engine damage on any given race.
post #97 of 170
i need money badly because im s sucky driver and i couldnt do much better than a 7.4 with all parts on the viper and my gearing

also im slow on the gas times. for instance my average is like 1.2 instead of 0.7 like u guys r getn

Oh yeah, I feel you on that one. My ratios make first gear fly by so fast, I literally have to shift right when I start off the line. My average times with my Viper are usually between 6.5-6.7, but I've been screwin up alot lately so my average dropped to 6.718.

Is your car turbocharged? zerohour suggested to me to go with a supercharger and I've been doing good ever since. One thing I will suggest is that you start moving the throttle up even before the green light goes. It's hard to time but I've been able to get .56 RTs doing it.

Try giving it full throttle about half way through the last yellow light on the tree. Experiment with that to see when you should give it gas, that should improve your reaction time.
