The 60' is definitely murdering your time. How was track prep? Did you spin/bog, how'd it go?

Track prep wasnít anything to write home about, I know the 60 is terrible, what can I do? Race 3 was with the nannies on so she bogged real bad but I killed the light so he couldn't catch me. Race 4 I slept on the light and I spun with no help from the computer

Reaction time does not get added to et. Starts when you break the beam.

A quick aggressive slip works the best for stick cars

+1 quick aggressive slip. No clutch drops, that's only going to help you spin or bog.

I kno that but what I was saying is I beat him off the light so I won the race cause his et was faster than mine. If they are open tonight im going to try that.

That explains a lot of my problems I try my best not to just dump the clutch but I get to line get jumpy and do it anyways. I need to try to mimic launching my bike next time
