Maple Grove is three weeks away.

Who is coming out? I will be running in true street. Hoping to take home the 10second class again.

Paul from total induction will be in truck and lightning.
Adam with the 4v sonic will be in T&L
And polish Paul with his 2.3 whipple will be in T&L

What class will you be in?

Depending if my wife & kids come along, if I'm flying solo, you're welcome to ride along with me for the true street cruise. I'm running the Raptor again. It's always a fun time! Even though it's slow, it's still fun being in the action, going on the cruise, and getting a front row seat to watch the true street passes lol

Bogus!

Truck & Lightning is bracket racing, so a pulley & tune L can compete against a big blower truck! The pulley & tune truck actually has an advantage, because it'll probably run more consistent than a faster full built truck.

True Street is also perfect. Go on a 30 mile cruise, then make 3 passes. The average of the 3 is your time entry, the closest to each x.000 time slot wins that index. So even if you have bad heat soak and run 12.5, 13.0, and 13.5, the three pass average would be a 13.000 and you'd win the 13.0 class. Not to mention it's just fun going on the cruise with all the other cars, and getting to make 3 passes consecutively so all the action is packed in, no big waits or delays, get your racing fix in, then hang out and spectate the rest of the day.

I guess you missed it before at one of the events a year or two ago, Carmelo hot lapped 9.5's or something like 8 minutes apart lol. Where's those time slips @svtmadness ? Post 'em up again.

Bracket racing NMRA, you get a few qualifying runs, and that sets your dial-in. Your dial-in is 1 tenth quicker than your best qualifying run. So if you go 11.5, 11.4, 11.6 in qualifying, your dial-in gets set at 11.3 since it's 1 tenth quicker than your 11.4 pass. Then for eliminations, you need to run as close to 11.30 as possible, without going faster than 11.30 or you break out. So you can be in the lanes next to an 8 second truck, and if he runs 8.90 on an 8.60 dial (3 tenths slower) but you run a 11.40 on an 11.30 dial (1 tenth slower) then you'd win.

Now R/T comes into play too, and it's a pro-tree, so you can win on a hole shot since they delay your starts, so you'd reach the finish line at the same time if you both ran your exact dial-in. So say you're 11.50 dial and he's 9.50 dial, your tree would go green 2.00 seconds before his, so on 2 perfect passes you'd both cross the stripe at the same time. Now say you run a perfect 11.50 (exact on your dial) and he runs a 9.60 (0.10 off his dial), but your reaction time was 0.5 and his was a perfect 0.000 light, well he won because he crossed the stripe first, even though you were closer to your dial. R/T comes into play with bracket racing. BUT, what time your truck runs doesn't as much, because you're racing yourself in that aspect trying to be consistent.

Now there's a ton more skill when it comes to knowing your trucks consistency, knowing your r/t, adjusting weight, sand bagging enough that you leave enough on the table to offset a crappy launch but still not break out, etc. etc. But it is fun to just go out there and get your feet wet, and you can compete against faster trucks, that's why they have bracket classes.

Or run true street, it's a no-brainer type of fun. 30 mile cruise, 3 passes, R/T doesn't matter, you're just racing for a 3 pass average and that's your entry. CLosest average to each x.000 marker wins each x.000 class.

Unfortunately still chasing a gremlin on Carmelo's truck. Found a vac leak with my home made smoke tester where he RTV'ed the plenum on about as well as a 2 year old would have lol, that helped but it's still not 100%. Smoke tested it again last night and found another slight spot, so he fixed that last night, so I'm going back over today to check it out and datalog again. Really hope he can get it ironed out by Maplegrove, but time is ticking fast.
