how'd I manage this?

ok, so this saturday at the summit races in San Antonio, I lost round 1 on a breakout... but i can't figure this out....
Q 1
2822' DA
1.6925 60'
4.9602 330'
7.6906 660'
89.84 MPH

2959' DA
1.6970 60'
4.9800 330'
7.7081 660'
90.04 MPH

elim rd 1
3208' DA
1.6866 60'
4.9617 330'
7.6870 660'
90.22 MPH

so, in eliminations compared to my fastest qualifying run, Q1 i ran a faster 60 by .0059
but a slower 330, i gave up all .0059 i had in hand and another .0015
but, by the time i got to the 660, i had regained all of the .0015 and another .0036

How did i manage to pass myself 3 times in the same race....granted were talking about thousandths of seconds... but It just annoyed me that the fasted run of the day was E1....

I dialed in a 7.70 because of the texas summer heat and I broke out by .0130, he broke out by .0116 so i lost by .0014.

are these numbers so small that with a small cam/stall/gear 5th gen that they just come out in the wash? Both launches were dead hooks, and both runs had minimal steering input, and all 3 runs were in the right lane.

Meh, just venting.
