First time at track pics & slips (56K be afraid)

Went to Centerville tonight. It's a 1000 foot track, there aren't any 1/4's in AR. I only ran 3 times.

1st run - Test and Tune - against a guy in a Saturn that swore SVTF's were s/c until I showed him the engine bay. I had a crappy reaction time. Launced at about 3200. Beat him.

2nd run - Eliminations for Import class. Got the same guy I ran against in the 1st run on the draw. Slightly better reaction time, but launched at about 3800 and could not get traction, let off and got back on it and still no traction. Got beat. Got eliminated

3rd run - Test and Tune. Ran against an older Accord. Got a much improved reaction time. Launched at 3200 like the 1st run but in different lane and still could not get traction, but still won.

Time Slips:

First ever run. My hands and legs were shaking the whole time and for several minutes after.
