Ran points, no box fer 8 years. Gotsta be consistant in every aspect/phase....starting with yer 60 foot. MUST be able to hook in a carwash is the key to repeating the ET's. Constant practice on seeing the tree/hitting it the same.

ALWAYS be able to learn from mistakes as there are an endless number of ways to lose.
:LOL: I like that one.....

This is so true. I always seemed to find a new one! Short story I ran the same guy 3 times. He beat me the first 2 times by less than .002 both times. Third time I said I’m going after him. This is mine. Took .005 out of the delay box and yup you guessed it. Red by .005!!!

I initially had a limited slip that slipped limitedly-durn thing wouldn't repeat the 60/ET to save my life. Tried several suspension and tuning "fixes" til figgered out that a spool was the answer. Lim slip looked like a bearded clam when it came out:oops:

Guess I should clarify....LS in question was a Torson/all gear unit. Had metal shavings all over the magnet and various other places upon removal/inspection. Didn't mean to offend

Is anybody in this group running at Orlando (Bithlo) or at Bradenton, Florida 2022 ?????
Maple Grove. I should be able to run two events there. But I usually race south central PA tracks.
As for “hooking in a car wash… I picked up a nice used set of MT ETDrag slicks today
