Racelegal's track sucks balls. I ran the mid 9's at Barona.
My rundown at racelegal.
Generally, I avoid the water but still spin the tires to clean them off, dry em, etc.
I then pull up the tree, line up, hold at whatever RPM's are getting me the best launch I can get and go, my shifting, I must say is pretty darn good and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to push the accelerator pedal to the floor.
