Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...
And no it does not take a lot of money to bracket race, just a dialed in car and some skill/practice. It only takes a lot of money to run heads up classes or if you want to go really fast.
EDIT: I LOVE that track
-87 Golf GT, built BT 1.8t 12.02@119 1.96 60' HX35@18psi pump gas (sold/parted out)

"Pretending to be someone else" is actually against forum rules, but apparently not banable.
Make it three yards mother****er and we'll have an automobile race
The faster you want to go the more it will cost.And no it does not take a lot of money to bracket race, just a dialed in car and some skill/practice. It only takes a lot of money to run heads up classes or if you want to go really fast.
Also if a car runs 9.99, it is considered a 9 second car, as long as it does it consistently. This is consistent in the drag racing world and anyone who doesn't agree I wouldn't imagine has been amongst that crowd.
Also probably half of cars in the 7 - 10 second range that are strip cars are running two speed powerlides with a stall converter. So not only are these cars launching the wheels four feet in the air for 50 feet, they are doing it with like a 1.8 gear ratio in the trans and a 28 - 30" tire.

It is, I still can't really get down with the stangs. My fiancee had one from 16 until 26 LOL. Such a junker.
That being said, DAMN! That thing is quick. My buddy works for precision so I see tons of these nutso cars. TT a V8 and things get fast, quick
