Ok, so whats the secret for a good reaction time on a Pro Tree??? Seems .400 is the best i can manage but .6 is more likely... any pointers (for a manual trans) will be appreciated! Cheers

No i try to go on the yellows but they don't give you a lot of time to get setup after staging! seems i have a lot to do, handbrake on, clutch at biting point, little bit of revs. usually i'm still working that out when i see the lights. staging deeper should help the RT?

Ah OK.... simple answer you stage when you're ready, don't be rushed by startline staff, best let some of the stick shifters give you a few pointers on quicker launch tips with a manual.

Remember a quicker RT doesn't necessarily mean a quicker ET, one key thing to work on is getting your 60fts down...

Handbrake? Biting point? It's not a hill start, do a really good burnout get to the staging lights first get staged stop. It's level you won't roll. Hold the revs about 3500 clutch right down . Don't sidestep the clutch let it up reasonably quick but smooth 1 fluid motion not too quick you need to slip it a bit. Trust the tyres to grip and go. Also don't grip the gearstick you will miss gears hook your fingers on the top and pull. Then engage 3rd using the heel of your hand have fun. If the car starts to bounce drop the clutch once it bounces you have lost the race if you keep the power in you will break something and lose the race. If you bounce do a bigger burnout.

Most of the good RT's were mistakes made by Drivers in GM cars, or using GM products. Try Ford stuff you know it makes sense.

advice from a mustang driver about being fast is like asking a fish how to climb trees, they may know the theory.
