|MightyMouse||Well when you have someone next to you then yes reaction time matters but until you get your ET's down I really wouldn't worry about the person next to you. Now once you figure out how to launch your car and get the ET's your suppose to run then you can start worrying about reaction time and such.|

People keep saying that reaction times don't matter, well keep saying that, I hope to see ALL of you lined up against me at FocusFest. In either the "heads up" grudge lanes or during the afternoon bracket racing, I'd be happy to hole shot you all and prove my point.
"Hole Shot"- in a drag racing event between two cars, often a slightly slower car (10.5) can over come a slightly faster car (10.0) when a faster reaction time to the starting "tree" can be achieved. If the slower car can can "launch" through the first beam .501 seconds before the vehicle that is .500 seconds faster in actual time; the slower car will "win" the race by .001. Thus the win is decided at the starting line before the cars tires every cross the "starting beam".
This is where the term "hole shot" was devoloped by racers. In professional drag racing there is often a seperate award for "The Hole shot".

But don't sweat it, R/T isn't important.

|MightyMouse||Dude don't worry about trying to get the best reaction time. Launch the car only when you are ready to go. Your shooting for the best 1/8 mile time you can get so who cares if the car next to you wins or loses.|
