Reaction time has nothing to do with 1/4 mile mph or time.

What was your 60' time.

NOT GOOD lol... why wouldnt reaction time not have anything to do with it? i thought it was the slower you react on green was shaving off time plus spinning some also would shave some more off no? this was my first time so please explain.. thanks.

Because the timer doesn't start until you leave the gate, you can sit there for a minute and then run a 14 second 1/4 mile and it will only show up as a 14 second mile.

The reaction time only wins races, doesn't change your overall time.

Your 60 ft will tell the whole story. The trap speed should be higher also.

One last thing if you have radials avoid the water box all together. Heating radials won't help you launch. You also have to figure out what rmp to launch from.
