I'd go as soon as the 3rd yellow lights up. I cut a .501 one time like that. I swear a .501 feels like a red light. The only thing that kept me from givin up was when I went past the tree, I got a quick glimpse of the green lit. Awesome feeling. Good luck

which track are u going to? soon as u see the third yellow pop the clutch.. if its ur first time at the track.. dont worry about reaction time this isn't competition bracket racing.. i'd only worry about getting good times.. launch at 4700-5000rpms.. not sure what u should set ur tire pressure at on stock rims..

he he.. i did a p-brake drift at the 15mph turn the other day.. it was really loud..

SonicBlueTeg, I'm going to Carlsbad next saturday, with my friend and his prelude and this other guy that has a 12 second lightning..I heard Carlsbad has the second best track times after bakersfield for Ca, but the return track is pretty crappy..I'm pretty nervouse since its my first time and all, but im looking forward to it..It should be really fun..

definitely 3rd light. you go sooner you will risk redlighting... any later and you'll be staring at the other dude's taillights all the way down the track.

There's a great article in the latest issue of Sport Compact Car. It talks about this exact topic. Tips for the drag strip. It talks about The lights and how to get a half second start...

I drop the hammer when I see the 3rd yellow lighting up. My best r/t so far is a .505 ... but I'm working on that!
