he put what I said in NUMBERS, Which is what u see on ur ticket when u make a pass!!

".005 lite" is a super fast reaction time to taking off at the light
and

"1.30 60ft" is the time it should take u to get thru 1st 60ft of the track after the light turns green!

You MIGHT cut a .005 light but you aint gonna cut a 1.05, MAYBEEEE a 1.30 60 ft on a stock wheelbase stock height bike, I seriously doubt it though

14,s are longer and heavier than 1000,s, liter bikes like to wheelie and flip on you takes a really good rider to beat a busa or 14, I seen a busa backflip and land on the bars,tank,seat and slide down the track 100 feet and stay perfictely upsidedown, and the rider was a experienced dragracer, got to take the helicopter ride for that one, fortunately was ok later.

Nothing to it but to try it!!! I think all night, I got down to a .08 reaction and maybe my lowest 60ft was about 1.94 i think!

Study that ticket is my advice, and the goal is to improve on them in every run. My numbers were all over the placed until my mind stopped running 100mph when I got up there and could THINK about what I was doing!

60ft IS the most important, but it's possible to run a bike down in the 1/4. i do it all the time, I don't always win, but I'm coming!!! I always manage to run outta space!!

After the 16th at MSR, I'm gonna lower it, strap it down in the front, gear it (thinking 1 down in the front to start). I'm sure with that alone I can get somewhere in the high 9's, consistently. If not, IT I'M DONE!!!

Several years ago in the texas shootout a guy on a 250 won the championship that year running 14.50, I seen him run 6 14.50,s in a row one time. in et racing he was killing everybody, seen him put 3 busa,s on a trailer in 1 night, he would leave like 4.5 seconds ahead of the other bikes and would be at 1/3 track before they would get the light and would redlite or breakout EVERY time, its a mental thing.

You do know that your reaction time is independent of your e.t.You can have any reaction and your e.t. will be the same
