What is with all the redd lighs in 1st round 8 red lights, with only 1 race decided by a green light start. WTF
It's time for instant green starts. [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]
With a couple of "RED EYES" in Pro Stock car and a couple in Funny car, I'm thinking unless the light is somehow different in PSM, then the riders need some time on the practice tree. With that said. the light from one side of the tree to the other side is the same. So being theprofessionals that they ARE, PSM riders........practice practice, practice. And I know the motorcycles react quicker than other classes, but they are on an equal playing field when lined up against each other.
1 redlight for the whole race in Gainesville and a whole bunch here I suspect a rollout problem.
The only thing worse than all the Red Lights was the announcers mispronouncing every third word. And are we in a time warp back to 2001 or is the Suzki TL1000 really “new technology”
Hey Gary, How have you been
In Gainesville many of the low qualifiers held back to avoid red lights and lost.
Instant greens or three tenths pro trees are only crutches to riders who can't adjust themselves or their machines for the conditions. They call themselves "Pro's". Then deal with it. Last time I checked, 99% of us can adjust our bikes between a full tree and pro tree, what's the big deal............
Quit whinning about the track or the lights and act like the Pro's you're suppose to be. If it was easy you everyone would be hired guns..........
Hey 7.0, thanks again for your help with our little dog and pony show!

Held back or were simply late [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]Sorry, gone are the days of giving up a tenth on the tree because you have the other guy covered by 2 or 3. Lets see who was really late in the first round at Gainesville, the Army bikes, Chip and Peggy Llewellyn. Sorry, but that was classic Angelle. I would chalk Peggy up to rookie butterflies. So this leaves Antron and Chip as the anomalies andI highly doubt that they would try and hold back a tenth plus when they have a tenth or less cushion. Nope, I still think it was a difference in the beams.
I would have to agree with Scott, There had to be a difference in the rollout or initial bite on the leave. Although a few riders did bog there motors on the leave I didn't see any magic 60ft times so itsprobablyrollout, as that is a variable that is supposed to be set to the same measurementat every track and at every race, its so easy even a caveman could do it. (did I just type that) There was a couple PS car guys that had better than normal lights all weekend also at this race. Remember the fiasco at Englishtown a couple years back where they tried to adjust rolloutduringthe NHRA event
ps: A practice tree was mentioned, there is no one that spent more time on a practice tree than Antron did, and he has more of a problem than most........Edited by: RandyMason
... I disagree about Gainsville. It was clearly a case of thinking or actually trying to "not" redlight for Angelle, Chip and Antron. They did not have two or three tenths but were running very strong.
