    Well . . . I still don't have my chassis certed, or my license yet. But, tomorrow is a points race . . so I gotta go.

    I'll be dialing the car at 10.05 and keeping it slow. :'(

    Yeah . . I should still be able to go some rounds . . remember, in bracket racing it's not "how fast" it's "how accurate". It's funny to think that I'm sandbagging by putting 10.05 on the windshield . . . lol

    Well . . just like my AZ Wildcats, I went down first round today. Caught a good light . . . short shifted a bit too much . . . and couldn't catch the guy at the stripe.

    I had a .066 advantage on the light and just fucking gave it away like a moron.

    Turns out I would have lost anyway because they were enforcing courtesy staging and I didn't know it.

    All in all a wonderful day. :puke:

    Yep. That means you can only light the top bulb and you have to wait for the other guy to light his top bulb before you can light the bottom one. I usually do it as a matter of course, but I had NO IDEA that the failure to do so was a DQ at this particular track.

    I'm just glad that I lost the round, anyway . . otherwise I'd be PISSED!!!
