This contributed greatly to everyone having their times suck. DA of 3200+ ft reminds me of Bandimere up in Colorado only we would see 5000+ ft at times.

And your time looks decent compared to what the others were getting.

Question: I'd like to know if most here are running with T/C on or off? From what I've seen, most are leaving it on, but just asking!
i had tc and stability off. i feel like there is a better launch when the stability off. i dont know if there is a real reason behind it or not but would love to hear an explanation if anyone has one. thanks!

That's really good for your first time out...

Remember to keep going past the signs at the end before you let off. Many times folks will let up just before the signs thinking they are through... Go just a bit beyond then slow....

My best time was with all off. Make sure you have good traction before going with all off. I think it has something to do with TC pulling timing.
